Rising income levels in emerging markets has boosted demand for alcoholic as well as non-alcoholic beverages. For brewers, emerging markets offer significant opportunities. According to Industry experts, Asia and Africa are expected to be key growth drivers for brewers in coming years. Canadean, a consumer market research group, expects beer volumes to record a compound annual growth rate of 3.8% in Asia and 4.6% in Africa until 2016. Emerging markets are also expected to be key growth drivers for non-alcoholic beverage makers.

Another major growth driver for non-alcoholic beverage makers will be healthier drinks. More and more consumers, especially in the developed world, are switching to healthier drink options. As a result, beverage companies have had to adapt to the changing market dynamics. Brewers saw substantial growth until 2009; however, the financial crisis resulted in consumers, especially in developed nations, scaling back their spending. This had a major impact in particular on companies brewing premium beers. However, since the start of this year, economic outlook has improved significantly.

Although Europe, a major market for brewers remains a concern, economic outlook for U.S. and China has improved. In fact, China is expected to be the key growth driver for brewers in Asia. In Latin America, Brazil and Mexico will be the key growth drivers for brewers. While the Brazilian economy slowed down last year, economic activity should pick pace in 2013 as the government has implemented measures to boost growth.
