Synopsis

Readers are provided with a Summary
snap shot table showing category growth in Q42013vs Q42012, together with provisional 2013volumes and latest2014 forecasts

An economic mood indicator, completed by Canadean's local consultant, examines (on a scale of one to five) whether confidence levels in the industry are better or worse than the previous quarter, whether net prices are rising or falling and how Private Label products have performed versus the rest of the market. Selected retail pricing data is given for the most recent quarter and the previous four quarters, enabling analysis of price movements.

Key highlights of the last quarter's commercial beverage performance are identified and the key market drivers examined

Volumes for Q42013 vs Q42012, Provisional 2013 volumes, moving annual totals (MAT) and 2014 forecasts are provided for each individual beverage category, together with supporting text on quarterly performance and forecast assumptions. More granular data is provided for the Carbonates category, with data split by regular vs low calorie, and by key flavors. Significant activity in the soft drinks industry is covered including recent new product introductions (detailing flavor, pack type, pack size, retail price and selected pack shots) and the latest industry news.

This quarters special focus is on Functional and Flavored Waters

Reasons To Buy

Following proposals made in the Budget, The tax on finished soft drinks will rise by 1.6% and the tax on squash/syrups will rise by 1.6% in 2014. The sugar tax will rise by 1.5%. The environmental tax on packaging will rise by 1.5% for glass, cans and cartons and by 1.6% for plastic bottles.

The colder weather may have impacted consumption to some extent. Packaged water gained ground but carbonates consumption was down. Juice containing drinks were down as a hole but nectars showed a little growth during the quarter, possibly due to lower price than pure juice generally.

Cider edged back possibly due to the advent of the traditional Juleøl (Christmas beer).

Key Highlights

Employment grew by 0.5% in Q3-13, up from 0.3% and 0.4% in Q1-13 and Q2-13 respectively. Growth in hours worked was about the same as growth in employment. In 2013, a marked growth in employment has been evident in general government and construction.

Gross value added in manufacturing grew by 1.5% in Q3-13. The strong growth was for the most part due to increased activity in machinery-producing industries, production of food products, and parts of commodity manufacturing. Value added in building of ships, oil platforms and modules fell after several quarters of marked growth.

Sports drinks consumption was up slightly but energy drinks enjoyed strong double-digit growth during the quarter. There was little innovation for sports and energy drinks but Coca-Cola extended distribution for the Urge Intense Wild Mango introduced in Q3-13.
