SABMiller's bid for Heineken earlier this month has reignited the possibility for major consolidations in the global beer market, which hasn't seen much movement in that direction in recent years.

This bid has been seen as a defensive action against an expected move by Anheuser-Busch InBev to buy SABMiller in the future. If such a transaction occurs, then A-B InBev would control nearly a third of the global beer market.

Euromonitor International's research analyst for alcoholic drinks, Amin Alkhatib, shares his views on the matter.
