Key Market Issues
The Mexican economy appears to be recovering well, demonstrating stable growth in 2012. This proved very fortunate for the beer industry, which was able to record 2% growth in the year.
Lower average temperatures were experienced throughout 2012, but in spite of this the beer market performed well.
New beverage control measures in 2013 will enhance the transparency of product contents on labelling in Mexico.
The on-premise channel has recorded growth in 2012 as consumers return to a more social atmosphere with friends and family away from home.
The Mexican beer market is set to change dramatically once A-BInBev and GrupoModelo finalize the details on the proposed acquisition. There are potentially some legal issues that would need to be resolved before the merger stabilizes, however.
2012 saw many brands refreshing brand images and redesigning logos, combined with aggressive promotions and advertising to drive forward consumption growth.
No notable shifts occurred in terms of market position as top selling brands retained their existing popularity with consumers, while PL brands struggle to gain a foothold in the market.
The proposed acquisition of GrupoModelo by A-BInBev will shape the Mexican beer market going forward as negotiations continue to finalise the deal between these two brewers.
Logos and packaging shapes were refreshed and redesigned in 2012, with many brands focusing on limited edition packaging to attract consumers’ attention.
Special focus was given to develop this distribution channel in 2012, as distributors try to focus on added value to consumers. Proposed Smartphone apps under development could change the way consumers shop for their beer needs.
