Key Market Issues

The Great Tohoku Earthquake and tsunami had a major impact on the supply and demand for beer in 2011. The production plants of the leading domestic brewers and packaging suppliers were severely damaged causing problems with product supply

The March earthquake accelerated the shift towards drinking at home. Preparing and eating gourmet food and drinking at home is perceived as a new type of luxurious experience for consumers

Beer flavored soft drinks grew strongly in 2011. As producers of these beer flavoured drinks are predominantly brewers, they position the drinks as one of beer variants to expand the 'beer' market in Japan

Domestic beer brands, dominant for decades, were threatened by the strong growth of low priced imported beer

Although still under developed, Private Label remains a threat to national brands. The low-price advantage and strong branding are the main drivers for the strong growth

Key Highlights

The earthquake and tsunami in March damaged production plants of the leading domestic brewers and packaging suppliers causing problems with product supply

The beer flavored soft drinks phenomenon also impacted upon beer consumption

Imported new genre beer is expected to remain one of the key competitors to domestic beer

Beer imports recorded strong growth due to low prices and meeting demands for new beers

Despite the problems caused by natural events, the big four domestic brewers continued to dominate the beer market, driving key trends
