Slow growth of the economy and a declining unemployment rate helped generate retail sales in Q4-15 and a good performance for the soft drinks sector. Strong gains in packaged water and carbonates allowed all commercial beverages to enjoy a positive final quarter. Sugared/sweetened flavoured waters also captured attention as they are perceived as healthier than classical carbonates. Overall gains in dairy drinks were modest as the government financed marketing campaigns to encourage consumption of quality Hungarian dairy products.

Key Findings
Low prices especially from Private Label brands attracted consumers to packaged water during Quarter 4

Flavoured waters are seen as healthy, thirst quenching and inexpensive soft drinks, with many exciting new flavor offerings

Dairy drinks are in crisis; the raw milk purchase price is very low and there are still cheap imported dairy products in retail stores

With no increases in excise duty affecting the beer category in 2015, the small premium segment of hand crafted beers helped boost quarterly volumes

Cider is capturing interest but the lack of popularity in rural areas remains a barrier
