The drinks and beverages industry consists of manufacturers who produce drinks for distribution to various retail channels; including major multiples, discounters, convenience, cash & carry’s and independents. The industry employs a huge number of people worldwide and as such, it is an important sector.


The drinks and beverages sector includes two mayor categories; alcoholic beverages, which includes beers, wines and spirits, and non-alcoholic beverages, which includes carbonates, bottled water and sports & energy drinks. Large industry platers benefit from huge economies of scale, both in production and distribution. It is therefore difficult for small beverage companies to compete; however they can do so by producing new, exciting products, or by catering to local tastes. To gain market share, beverage manufacturers must seek new ways to innovate and this includes being able to forecast future market trends.


In this industry in particular, growth opportunities are difficult, so industry players must attempt to diversify their product portfolio in order to remain competitive and increase market share. This may also include worthwhile acquisitions and distribution agreements, with the goal of expanding operations, product lines and geographical reach.
