Key Highlights

A migration from Brazilian cachaça (Brazilian rum) has occurred, especially based on investments made by companies in distribution, advertising and also from purchase power improvements. It is expected that another multinational company will enter the Brazilian market in 2012, causing some change to the segmentation of the market.

Beer specialties franchises have been launched, improving superpremium presence in off-premise channels (kiosks) and also beer clubs, with monthly premium and superpremium beer tasting.

Imports gained importance, supported by beer specialty franchises and improving distribution from trade companies. With several investments made by metal can producers, it is expected that this pack material will reach 40% share in the next five years without suffering shortage of packs, which has occurred in the past years.

Some of the players and brands known as discount beers have been redesigned and repositioned, intending to fulfill gaps left by investments made to premium and superpremium beers. These brands have gained share.

The dramatic decline in the volume of 'Others' reflects the impact of the SICOBE measures, the retreat from illegal players and also, the impact on legal discount beers.
