The ShinesRooms.com Provides Stock Research onBeam Inc. and Molson Coors Brewing Co.

New York City, New York -- The beverage industry faced significant challenges in 2012 due to weakness in Europe, slower growth in BRIC economies and uncertainty in the U.S. due to the fiscal cliff. While Europe remains a weak link, the economic outlook for the U.S. and China has improved significantly, which should boost consumer spending and benefit alcoholic drinks makers such as Beam Inc. (BEAM) and Molson Coors Brewing Company (TAP). Going forward, the key for alcoholic beverage industry will be to expand their presence in fast growing emerging markets.

Emerging markets, including China, are expected to be key growth drivers for alcoholic drinks makers. Rising income levels in these countries should boost demand for premium brands. By focusing on emerging markets, alcoholic drinks makers will be able to offset the expected weakness in Western Europe, where consumption is likely to wane given the weak economic environment.

Both, Beam Inc. and Molson Coors Brewing Co., have been expanding their presence in emerging markets. At the time of the release of the company’s fourth quarter results last month, Beam Inc.’s CEO Matt Shattock said that the company enhanced its routes to market across fast-growing economies like China in the fourth quarter. Conversely, Molson Coors Brewing Company’s CEO Peter Swinburn said last month that the company’s worldwide volume and net sales increased due to the addition of its Central Europe business.
