In the dying days of 2013, the Swedish parliament announced that the tax on alcohol will rise by 7% from January 2014.

Key Market Issues

Results for the third quarter point to continued stagnation of the Swedish economy, with GDP edging upwards by just 0.3% on the comparable period in 2012.

Juice has slipped very much out of fashion. To an extent this can be accredited to the jump in nectars and still drink sales. However, the problems are more deep rooted, with many Swedes seeing juice as sitting on the wrong side of the health line.

Canadean are less optimistic for the year ahead and expect the market to fall by nearly half a per cent. Other than the stagnant economy, two main factors are behind the downward projection, the first being the tax rise on alcoholic drinks. Inevitably, this will have an impact on demand for domestic sales by encouraging consumers to the border shops. The second factor was the hot summer, which amplified the soft drinks performance in 2013.

Key Highlights

Alcoholic drinks recorded a small rise, while carbonates remained virtually flat for the period. The rise in alcoholic drinks has been rewarded with a tax increase from January. Although the carbonates market may be flat, however, within the category the low calorie segment continues to register extraordinary levels of growth.

Light drinks keep on upwards trend as the health trend kicks in once more.
