Product Synopsis

Published by Canadean, this Quarterly Beverage Tracker report provides a detailed analysis of the latest developments in the United Kingdom beverage market

Introduction and Landscape

Why was the report written?

In the current climate of economic uncertainty and market volatility companies need to know about more than just data. This report provides a complete overview of all commercial beverage consumption trends, latest market developments and an economic mood indicator

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?

GDP increased by 0.7% in the fourth quarter of 2013. The largest contribution to the increase came from the services sector, which increased by 0.8%. The increase in GDP followed growth of 0.8% in Q3 2013. In the latest quarter there was widespread growth, with increases in three of the four main aggregates. Output increased by 0.5% in agriculture, 0.7% in production, 0.8% in services and decreased 0.3% in construction.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?

October was particularly bad, opening with showers and spells of rain, but also mild in most areas. A vigorous autumn storm affected the southern UK early on the 28th with widespread impacts, mostly due to damaging gusts of wind, particularly in south-east England. Four people were killed, in Kent, Watford and west London. Over 600,000 homes were left without power and there was severe travel disruption as train services were suspended, flights were reduced, fallen trees and standing water blocked roads and ferry services were cancelled.

Key Market Issues

The Consumer Prices Index (CPI) - the headline measure of inflation - grew by 2.0% in the year to December, down from 2.1% in November. This means that a basket of shopping that cost 100.00 in December 2012 would have cost 102.00 in December 2013. The largest contributions to the fall in the rate came from prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages and recreational goods and services.Storms hit most of the UK during October and December, causing thousands of pounds worth of damage and leaving many without power.

There were mixed fortunes for Private Label products, with share losses in packaged water, sports drinks and energy drinks, but reasonable results in squash/syrups.

Key Highlights

The unemployment rate for September to November 2013 was 7.1% of the economically active population, down 0.5 percentage points from June to August 2013. There were 2.32 million unemployed people, down 167,000 from June to August 2013.GDP was 2.8% higher in Q4 2013 compared with the same quarter a year ago. GDP is estimated to have increased by 1.9% between 2012 and 2013.

The dairy category continued to be the star performer with sales up by 1% in Q4-13, driven mainly by white and flavored milks. The full year ended up 1% - the best performer within all commercial beverages.
