Trouble is brewing
The industry will continue to depend on changes in alcoholic beverage expenditure and consumption patterns. Since wholesalers are in a mature phase, stagnant demand will characterize the industry. Competition from wine and spirits will increase as consumer tastes expand. Furthermore, volumes are expected to remain low, diminishing overall revenue. However, the revival in the economy will help boost demand for beer, supporting marginal growth.
