- The reduced spending power of stretched consumers has seen a rise of smarter shopping attitudes in the off-premise market
- The consumption of beer with tapas has remained important in terms of on-premise consumption in 2011. This trend has been supported by the marketing activities of brewers and bar proprietors.
- Leading brands have continued to add to their product value through innovative packaging
- New consumer groups, such as young women, seniors and even teens under 18 (for soft drinks vending), were targeted through non-alcoholic beer and shandy lines.
- The off-premise channels are increasingly important for beer producers since consumers shift from on-premise to at home or on-the-go beer consumption.
- The beer category remained stable seeing 0.3% growth from 2010 to 2011 due to leading brands implementing an active upsizing strategy.
- Alcoholic beverages are forecast to decline by 1% in 2012 due to the difficulties beer producers will face if they continue to use upsizing strategies, which will erode their margins.
- Flavour is more important than alcohol content; Spain has one of the highest consumption levels of non-alcoholic beers in Europe.
- In both on/off-premise channels 25cl-33cl is the most popular size. In Horeca draught servings are usually 25cl while refillable/non-refillable glass bottles and cans are generally 33cl.
- The trend to partly replace on-premise consumption with at home consumption for reduced spending has become more prominent throughout 2011, benefitting the super-premium brands.
