Key Market Issues

 

Milk consumption is down across the whole of West Europe (with the exceptions of Greece, the Republic of Ireland and the UK) due to concerns over the fat content, changes in lifestyle and immigration. However, with the European Milk Quota System ending in 2015, the market could become over-saturated.

 

Struggling European economies such as Spain, Italy and Greece are decreasing consumption of nearly all beverages. Only packaged water is showing steady growth, with double digit declines for most other categories.

 

Increasing quality of tap-water available across West Europe is spearheading a move away from packaged water in times of economic austerity. However, seasonal factors such as warm weather ensure a steady, if unspectacular growth.

 

Increasingly in Germany and Austria, the effect of hydration is seen as a factor to improve performance, and free water is offered. However, in countries of high unemployment, bulk/HOD water is seen as surplus to requirement and corporate demand has reduced.

 

Annual increases in sugar taxes are affecting growth of the soft drinks category throughout West Europe. Furthermore, the €1 per liter tax France has imposed on energy drinks since January 2014 may see consumption impacted negatively.

 

Key Highlights

 

Recent expansion of the coffee giant has contributed to growth in both the soft drinks (iced/RTD coffee drinks) and hot drinks (coffee) categories. Indeed, Sweden now views coffee as its national drink.

 

The dairy category has seen a surprising drop in volume, defying predictions of a recovery. Consumer awareness of the fat content has led this decline.

 

Some West Europe nations experienced their warmest summer for years, further prompting alcohols' gradual decline. Increasingly consumers are opting for packaged water as a more refreshing option.

 

Widespread taxes on sugar, austerity and consumer awareness of health risks, have led to declines in the carbonates segment. Soft drinks were able to sustain their growth in large part due to the success of packaged water.

 

Energy drinks are the only category demonstrating significant growth of 4%. Remarkably defying the economic crisis, energy drinks are sourcing some volume from alcoholic drinks.
