Quarterly Beverage Tracker Fourth Quarter 2015: Bulgaria; Comprehensive Quarterly Analysis of Year on Year Performance for All Commercial Beverages

Summary

Despite the decline in the tourist sector, the economy continued its recovery which helped the commercial beverage industry to grow further. Despite the warm weather, growth of alcoholic beverages was slowed by higher investment in smaller package sizes in order to increase profit. Fierce competition between the top three bottler of packaged water saw volumes grow. Warm weather and a rise in consumer purchasing power aided the carbonates category.

Key Findings

The long and cool autumn enabled companies to invest in categories with lower summer seasonality and thus benefit from growth in purchasing power

The premium profile of hot beverage consumption gave the higher priced segment substantial share

Alcoholic drinks consumption shifted away from seasonal categories and towards spirits and wine, which were helped by substantial investments

The warmer weather compared to previous years and the rise in purchasing power helped volume growth overall

Potential tax on beverages with high caffeine content might hurt volumes, especially in the budget segment

Brewers have turned to investments in cider in order to gain more volume in the high season, as beer mixes have been proven to have limited potential

Despite the efforts of major bottlers, illegal bottling still held substantial share with small businesses and households
