Participants in the Alcoholic Beverage Wholesaling industry purchase alcoholic beverages from producers and distribute them to on-trade and off-trade retailers. Changing consumer habits and trends within the downstream markets have knock-on effects on Alcoholic Beverage Wholesale operators. As a result, the industry has endured mixed fortunes over the past five years.
During the first few years of the five-year period through 2015-16, downstream markets were under pressure from declining alcohol consumption, high alcohol taxes and the prevailing effects of the 2007 smoking ban. The closure of many pubs throughout the United Kingdom had a knock-on effect on wholesalers.
Firms in this industry purchase alcoholic beverages from producers and distribute them to retailers in both the on- and off-trades. The industry also includes alcohol producers that import products for distribution in the United Kingdom.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
