Market valuation data and pricing data, including beer consumption by price segment/distribution channel and selected consumer beer prices, are also included.
- The on-going ban on imported beer gives free reign to locally based brewers- Consolidated Breweries, Nigerian Breweries and Guinness Nigeria- which all participated in the on-going market expansion last year.
- A negative impact on the beer market is the increasing attention being given to wine, which is perceived as healthier. Local wine processing is underdeveloped and expensive, presenting a good opportunity for foreign options.
- Nigeria is an attractive proposition for investors; however entry into the beer market is not easy as it is closely controlled by two powerful brewery groups: Heineken and Diageo.
- The spirits category is served by local and international products with the availability of cheap single-serve sachets of local spirits providing market access for low income consumers.
- Import volume in Nigeria is very small, accounting for much less than half a percent of consumption. Imports are mainly transit brands as the importation of all beer (amongst other products) has been prohibited since 2003.
- With a population in excess of 155 m people, Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa, with 45% of the population being under 15 years of age. At the same time, beer consumption sits at under 10 liters per capita, which is low by international standards, and this situation offers ample room for significant market expansion.
- There was just one major new product launch last year (Harp Lime from Guinness Nigeria) in both a 33cl glass bottle and similar sized can. In addition, there were several new pack presentations.
- The market is partitioned into super premium, premium, mainstream and discount segments on the one hand, and split between lager and stout/dark ale on the other
- Despite the size of the Nigerian beer market, the number of available brands is quite limited, with just 20 brands account for nearly 99% of consumption.
