    Press Release

    from Plato Logic Limited, 14th October 2013

    World Beer Market forecast to grow by just 1% in 2013.

    Substantially influenced by a slowdown in China, global beer consumption was just 1.3% higher in 2012, with only around 1% growth also currently forecast for 2013, according to latest data from beer market specialists Plato Logic.

    Ian Pressnell, Director of Plato Logic commented: “The global beer market is reflecting the slowdown in the world economy during 2012-2013, but we are optimistic that growth will pick up in 2014, when we could see the 2 billion hectolitre mark reached for the first time.”


    Looking at the 2013 projections in more detail, Plato Logic forecast net beer market growth of around +4% in the Asia/Pacific region and +2% in Africa, offset by a decline of -2% from Europe, with the Americas essentially flat or a little lower.
