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. While large-scale transformative mergers are less likely, several smaller companies offer advantages of access to new geographies, brands, sales channels, or strategic partnerships. A report from Euromonitor this month looks to identify these opportunities for major soft drinks categories and explains the rationale and implications of potential future M&A activity.

Research – UK: Mixing alcohol and politics 4 Feb 2010

Column: Research in Focus

All political parties are in 'full-on' election mode and this means ramping up activity to win support and votes across the country. Key political figures are making their views heard by outlining their proposals to improve their chances at the polls.

We’ve seen various parties use alcohol to almost outdo each other in the media with different plans to cut binge drinking and alcohol-fuelled anti-social behaviour, which costs the UK millions of pounds each year. What can we actually expect? Tim Wilson, managing director of the Wilson Drinks Report considers the options.
