- Carbonates consumption data for Q1-2017 vs Q1-2016, moving annual totals (MAT), full year 2016 provisional data and 2017 forecasts split by regular vs low calorie, and key flavor.
- An economic mood indicator with an at a glance assessment of industry confidence levels, private label performance vs brands and price trends.
- Insightful and valuable analysis of the drivers behind the latest quarterly trends and assumptions for full year 2017.
- Norway experienced a weak, but improving, GDP according to the latest government statistics for Q4-16
- All soft drinks categories (with the exception of packaged water, iced/RTD tea drinks, iced/RTD coffee drinks, and energy drinks) suffered declining consumption; the timing of the Easter period had a profound impact on quarter comparison. Easter fell in Q1-16 and this year will fall in Q2-17
- Carbonates experienced a consumption downturn of around 5% in Q1-17 (due to the timing of Easter), orange flavor suffered a double digit decline and lemon-lime a single digit decline. Cola flavor fared better with an overall 1% decline
- Bulk/HOD water enjoyed positive growth of around 1% in Q1-17, as did iced/RTD tea drinks and iced/RTD coffee drinks, thanks to innovation from Tine SA
- The energy drinks market was the real winner, with double-digit growth, thanks to the launch of two new Monster Ultra energy drinks
- The juice, still drinks, and sports drinks categories all suffered from a single-digit decline in consumption in Q1-17, impacted by the sugar debate
- In the dairy categories, white milk consumption was down slightly, but there were slight gains for flavored milk, thanks to the launch of Litago Uten (sugar-free). Traditional fermented milk also grew slightly, thanks to innovation from the Biola brand. Drinking yogurts continued to edge back in consumption in Q1-17, overshadowed by the much larger traditional fermented milk segment
- Soymilk and grain, nut, rice and seed milk alternatives also showed positive growth in Q1-17, but from a small but growing base
- Beer and cider consumption were both down in Q1-17 by around 4%, but again the timing of Easter made for difficult quarterly comparison.
