This weeks top reports in just-drinks research store

Here's a run-down of some of the top research reports currently available in the just-drinks research store:

BEER

Global beer is going through a transformational period. Key categories are adapting to respond to maturity barriers, macroeconomic headwinds, the craft segment’s irreverent and seismic rise and the loss of share of throat to spirits and wine. As emerging markets are proving to be as profitable as they are volatile and mainstream brands’ dominance is put into question, pockets of value growth are difficult to locate, but are more important than ever. This report takes a look at the category.

This report details trends in the market by label format, materials, and technologies, with particular emphasis on the changing structure and developments within this key area of use for labels and other forms of product packaging and decoration. It outlines the background and technologies used to provide product identification and decoration in the global beer markets, and to indicate the current status and future prospects for the various labelling technologies.

SOFT DRINKS

The Coca-Cola Co continues to lead world’s soft drinks comfortably, overshadowing PepsiCo in geographical spread, category development and brand-building. Consumers’ desire for non-carbonates continues to rise, while reduced sugar products have become a core theme in new product development. This soft drinks corporate strategy briefing offers an insight into the size and shape of the global soft drinks market.

Carbonates remain the world’s most valuable soft drink category thanks to high consumption in the US and key markets in Latin America. However, the category faces many challenges as this report demonstrates. While increased access and penetration are still possible in emerging markets, new strategies must be employed in developed ones if manufacturers seek to maintain value growth.

WINE

Climate change has significant implications for Europe's wine industry, according to this new just-drinks report.
