Key Market Issues
2012 had an especially wet summer which undoubtedly hurt the cider category.
Consumer spending continued to be hindered by the on-going economic situation.
Drunk over ice, Magners was the founding father of these so called ‘modern ciders’. These beverages have appealed to a wider audience and blurred the line between FABs and cider.
White cider, which had initially been offered as a premium proposition, continue to fade to well under 10% of the market. These strong ciders tarnished the good name of cider and for many years prompted the category to struggle with image problems.
Interest in cider is growing around the world with many operators looking to these new markets to expand their businesses.
The market is being driven by the so called modern ciders, of which flavored products are at the forefront. Modern ciders are descendants of the Magners brand.
The rise in ‘modern ciders’ has come at the expense of FABs, just as the rise of FABs in the nineties came largely at the expense of cider.
The key segment movement in 2012 was the rise of flavored cider, which has now overtaken the pear segment.
The arrival of Kopparberg reignited the pear segment and its success prompted Magners, Bulmers, Stella Cidre and Strongbow among others to introduce pear variants.
A new pear variant and a lower 5.0% Abv could not prevent Strongbow falling steeply last year.
