Key Market Issues
Premium brands are the fastest growing, up by nearly 195% on last year. This was largely due to the improved management of brands such as Miller Lite.

The beer industry is expected to continue its positive growth trend, driven by premium brands and a shift to cheaper beers, as a result of a government tax on spirits.

Imports grew by 11% in 2012, driven by the popularity of premium brands Corona and Old Milwaukee.

Export growth of 33% was recorded in 2012, with Panama acted as a hub for the re-export of imported brands.

Key Highlights
Leading brand Atlas has lost market share in 2012, with SABMiller putting more support behind its other brand, including Balboa and Miller Lite.

Average prices increased by 17%, mainly due to the movement of certain brands from the discount to mainstream segments.

For the third year in a row, very little has changed across the on- and off-premise markets. Off-premise takes the majority of sales, with large modern leading the market.

Cerverceria Nacional (SABMiller) leads the beer market in Panama, currently holding a 66% market share. Its strategic focus is on maximising distribution strength and driving volume through strong promotional and marketing initiatives.
