What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
The craze for beer mixes continued last year and changed the course of the beer market in Slovakia. Consumption is also moving towards off-premise due to price differences and the changing lifestyle of the younger generation who are more health and sport conscious.
What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
All breweries have now launched beer mixers in different flavors and alcoholic strength. Radler is particularly popular with women and younger consumers who enjoy trying new products. This development in the demand for beer illustrates the changing lifestyle of the Slovak population; lower alcoholic beers are becoming more popular due to their lower price and convenience in increasingly hectic lifestyles.

The weather in 2012 was warmer, at almost 1 degree above average temperatures, and the crucial summer months were hot and dry.
Can was revived last year due to the rise of radler, of which almost half is sold in can packaging. It is also viewed as a more luxury packaging than the traditional glass bottle by Slovak consumers.
The slowdown in the economy has also been reflected in rising unemployment. Slovakia suffers with high structural unemployment, which is one of the highest in the Eurozone.
Many brewers cut costs due to low margins, which were squeezed by previous declining consumption and increasing costs. A knock on effect of these factors was the small brewery, Popper, closing down at the end of 2012.
Slovaks are still watching their wallets on perishables like food and drinks. This has resulted in high price sensitivity and low brand loyalty as many consumers are shopping only for special offers. The loyalty to specific brand has thus been undermined.
