Key Market Issues
- As the cider market matures, a super premium category is starting to emerge.
- Despite several years of good growth, penetration is below rates seen in the UK, Ireland and New Zealand, which have similar beer consumption rates and cultural traits to Australia.
- The poor summers of 2010-11 and 2011-12 had a negative impact on Australia's overall market for long alcoholic beverages (beer/cider/FABs).
- The tax system currently heavily favors ciders over FABs and beers.
- Super premium is emerging as a segment because of two trends; the desire for craft ciders made from natural ingredients including fresh juice with no added sugar and the desire for ciders with complex, non-apple fruit flavorings.
- The outlook for cider in Australia remains positive, with growth in 2013 expected to continue at high double-digit rates.
- The leading brand in the Australian cider market is still Strongbow but it has not kept pace with market growth.
- The second-largest brandin 2012 was Rekorderlig, a Swedish import, distributed by small independent distributor. Its sales more than doubled between 2011 and 2012.
- The third-largest brand in the market, is Lion's Tooheys Extra Dry 5 Seeds. It has been the fastest growing mainstream brand in recent years.
- SABMiller-owned CUB remains the largest player and its cider brands have been performing well compared to its beer brands, but there has been substantial competitive pressure. This has come not just from CUB's traditional beer market rival, Lion, but also from new players shipping or licensing major brands from overseas.
