Key Market Issues
Compania Nacional de Nicaragua (CNN) remains as the only brewer with 84% of the market.
Nicaragua is a country of contrast, even though most of the population lives in poverty, there is a small percentage of the population that has a very high income. Low income consumers based their choice solely on price while the higher income demographic choose quality and brand, preferring imported brands
CNN maintains the market leadership because of it being the local brand of a company that has been in the market for years which consumers feel a special attachment to.
Another advantage CNN has is a strong distribution channel and customer relationship, in other words they know the retailers very well and know what to offer them.
The Nicaraguan beer market is expected to grow by 4% during 2013, mainly due to the current low per capita consumption rate which represents an opportunity for the main players.
Prices were up in both the off- and on-premise because of inflation.
Stricter control of alcohol licenses led the on-premise to a 4% decrease.
Marketing and advertising mainly consist of promotions at the point of sales; one example is the cubetazos, which are very popular in the country. This mainly consists of selling 10 beers for the price of 8, served in an ice bucket
Brahva accounts for 12% of the market, increasing in volume but retaining the same market share. This was mainly due to the effect of the rise in prices which was down to the increase in the transportation costs of beer which is imported from Guatemala
