Introduction and Landscape
Why was the report written?
In the current climate of economic uncertainty and market volatility companies need to know about more than just data. This report provides a complete overview of all commercial beverage consumption trends, latest market developments and an economic mood indicator
What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
Political unrest related to the presidential dismissal by referendum in July had a strong impact on the local currency devaluation which weakened by 1.85% versus the Euro during the quarter. Inflation rose to a new high level in September. Temperatures constantly exceeded the normal values, while rain was totally absent.
What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
On one hand the hot weather was favoring several seasonal categories (packaged water, carbonates, iced/rtd tea drinks, beer), but on the other hand the drought added to other unfavorable factors and impacted the price of crops, a 5% higher price of fruits being of significant importance for soft drinks producers. Soft drinks managed 4% growth overall.
