What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
The cider market used to be fairly traditional, with an older, mainly male, consumer profile and little brand innovation. In pubs, cider traditionally competed with lager and more recently with FABs. However, the fashion of drinking cider over ice was popularized by Bulmers Original several years ago thus broadening the appeal of cider as an alcoholic drink to a wider and younger consumer audience, including females.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
As a result of innovation, cider is now more appealing to a younger demographic than before through a wider choice of products. In many ways these new ciders compete in the same space as FABs and many FABs drinkers, especially younger females, have expanded the range of alcoholic drinks they consume to include cider.
