Research in Focus - The New Consumer and the Alcoholic Drinks Industry 19 Nov 2010

Column: Research in Focus

The fiscal maelstrom of the' Great Recession' has had a profound impact on the global socio-economic landscape. Sweeping across the world in 2008 and 2009 and causing havoc in countries as diverse as Latvia, the US, South Korea and South Africa, the sharpest contraction in world output since the Great Depression dramatically reshaped consumption trends, bringing about the arrival of a new norm. Temporary or permanent, radically fresh or an acceleration of pre-existing shifts in drinking, going out, socialising and spending patterns, such dramatic movements are but the post-natal convulsions following the birth of a new type of consumer. Euromonitor International’s latest global briefing, Beyond the Crisis – The New Consumer and the Alcoholic Drinks Industry, is an attempt to identify and contextualise the shifts, decipher their implications and point to the direction the alcoholic drinks industry will take in response.

Research in Focus - Soft Drinks Global Trends and Opportunities 22 Oct 2010

Column: Research in Focus

Global soft drinks sales proved to be somewhat recession resilient in 2009, though consumers did turn away from the premium spending that has driven the expansion of smaller categories like energy drinks and functional waters.

Having the flexibility to find and adapt to the best opportunities for each soft drinks category at a global scale will be key to future sales growth.

Research in Focus - Back to the Future - Reassessing Projections in a Tumultuous World 23 Sep 2010

Column: Research in Focus

As the fiscal and social maelstrom of the Great Recession started showing signs of abating, projections in October 2009 for the alcoholic drinks industry were relatively positive as most leading economies returned to growth. Nevertheless, and while a relative resurgence was indeed witnessed in a number of markets and categories, financial clouds are still ominously dotting the horizon in the form of spiralling country deficits, plummeting consumer confidence and unemployment rates stubbornly stuck in the high single digits. Euromonitor International’s latest global briefing ‘Alcoholic Drinks: Changing Growth Scenarios and Corporate Responses’ hence serves as a compass in the still troubled international operating landscape, pinpointing opportunities and pitfalls amidst the post-recessionary clutter. Spiros Malandrakis investigates.

Research - Soft Drinks M&A Opportunities in 2010 25 Jun 2010

Column: Research in Focus

As soft drinks manufacturers emerge from the global recession, many face continued sales declines in developed markets due to saturation of key categories. As credit markets ease, new global competitors will continue to emerge as companies look beyond their domestic markets for growth.
