Growing focus on the sugar content of a variety of soft drinks has benefitted the overall soft drinks market. This benefit has been compounded by marketing concerning the health benefits of drinking enough water. Spirits and FABs remained stable whilst wine saw a year on year positive increase. Cultured dairy drinks have seen a drop in their volume. The high price per liter is a barrier as consumers do not understand the value proposition and the novelty factor peaked years ago.
White milk dominates the volumes of dairy drinks in the Republic of Ireland and remains stable with just a marginal decline due to population growth.
Growing consumer trends focusing on healthy living have constricted growth in the carbonates category as consumers switch to options perceived as healthier.
Alcohol volumes declined across most categories in comparison to Q4-15 consistent with seasonal trends. Year-on-year growth varied largely across the different categories.
Herbal and specialty varieties of hot tea have seen some growth but at the expense of standard varieties of hot tea resulting in a slight overall decline of the category.
