World Beer Market growth slows in 2012 (provisional)
New Top 10 World Brewers Table announced (provisional/pro forma)
According to latest figures released by beer market specialists Plato Logic, the World Beer market grew by under 1.5% in 2012 (provisional). Ian Pressnell, Director of Plato Logic, commented: "Growth was lower than in 2011, however the development was uneven and the headline figure was dragged down by a weak last quarter in China. We estimate the US market returned to modest growth and that the Far East and Central Asia region, excluding China, grew by more than 4%."
Plato Logic have now prepared an updatedTop 10 World Brewers league table, based pro forma 2012 volumes (latest estimates).
The chart shows that A-B InBev retain the number 1 spot, around 75mhl ahead of SABMiller in second place, followed by Heineken and Carlsberg. The ‘Big 4’ retain a combined market share of around 50% (pro forma 2012).
