During the first semester of the year, the beer industry reported a significant decline due to the increments average prices and also the contraction of the purchasing power

The main driver behind is the fast growth witnessed during the first two months of the year when the consumption increased by more than 20%. This trend has been the result of the fresh money injected by the Venezuelan government in order to create a positive environment and thus favor the elections of Nicolas Maduro

2012 was characterized by changes in trends. It was observed that an increase in share of the mainstream segment is referring to the beers that are not associated with Ice or Light. The main reason is that Venezuelans are demanding traditional brands.

Key Highlights
During 2012, the consumption of beer continued posting a negative performance with sales falling by 6.5%. Two main drivers continued to impact in the category, the deterioration of consumer spending power and rapid price increments.

The Venezuelan market is not varied in terms of segmentation, and to some point, the beer culture is still very much undeveloped. The presence of different types of beer is moderate, as lager absorbs almost 98% of the consumption.

In 2012, the market changed drastically after the joint venture between Regional and AmBev. Now two companies absorb almost the whole market.

Domestic products are priced significantly lower than imported ones as imported brands have been more impacted upon than national beer by the contraction of consumer spending power. The imported beer segment is small, possibly because it is considered a premium product in Venezuela.

During 2012, glass packaging continued to absorb most of the sales, in particular refillable options. The well developed packing and refilling structure owned by major players supports the high penetration of this pack type.
