This report identifies the threats and opportunities within the global food and beverage industry, economic outlook trends, and business confidence within global food and beverage industry executives.Most secondary research reports are based on general industry drivers and do not understand the industry executives' attitude and changing behaviors, creating a gap in presenting the business outlook of the industry.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
Executives from the global food and beverage industry expect increased levels of consolidation, with 46% of respondents anticipating that there will be either a 'significant increase' or an 'increase' in mergers and acquisition (M&A) activity over the next 12 months.
What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
M&A activity is expected to increase as a result of the lack of credit availability, increasing cost pressures, new consolidation opportunities, and the weak liquidity position of many small companies. The need to manage new cost or demand pressures, repay debts, comply with procedures, reduce operational expenses, and attain economies of scale, is also expected to drive M&A activity in the global food and beverage industry.
