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

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

Summary

A very buoyant period for imports in general and Mexican products in particular helped to deliver growth for the beer category, although mainstream domestic brands remain under pressure not only from imports but also from craft beer, cider and FABs. Seasonally adjusted retail sales were estimated to be up very slightly in the fourth quarter, but only when the increasingly significant online business is included. One of the warmest fourth quarters for many years undoubtedly helped to create positive momentum for beverage business.

Key Findings

It was a very strong quarter for premium water, and this segment is increasingly looking like the “craft” segment of the water category

In beer, once again it was the import and craft segments which lifted category sales, while the mainstream domestic beer market continued to underperform

Acceleration in the trend towards alternative beverages and an increasingly rapid decline in at-home breakfast consumption derived the overall sales of white milk

It was a very erratic year for tea consumption, driven by pricing fluctuations and also by the fact that consumers are moving towards higher quality, less frequent purchases
