EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
COVID-19 impact on alcoholic drinks
COVID-19 country impact
Volume growth increases in 2019, as low/non alcohol options, the premiumisation trend and rising disposable incomes drive sales of alcoholic drinks
Diageo Ireland Ltd retains its lead; however, competition from retailers Lidl and Aldi continues to grow in 2019, as the players benefit from appealing quality-price-ratios
On-trade volume growth recovers over the forecast period, whereas off-trade growth is challenged by price-conscious behaviour and unit price increases
