Executive Summary

Jul 2019
Very good weather and increased wealth boosting sales in most categories

In 2018 the weather was one of the most significant drivers of growth in alcoholic drinks. A relatively short winter, followed by a hot spring, summer and autumn, with limited rain, encouraged increased sales both through the off-trade and on-trade.

Whiskies and wine benefit from new enthusiasts

Polish consumers are starting to change their drinking habits by moving from strong alcoholic drinks to lighter and flavoured ones. For example, wine saw stronger growth than previously expected at the end of the review period with this set to continue over the forecast period.

2018 sees plenty of company activity including acquisitions and new product launches

2018 saw a lot of company activity within alcoholic drinks in Poland. One of most interesting was Janton buying Wino Maklowicz and Platinum Wines, with the deal closed in early 2019.

Supermarkets losing share to discounters

The distribution of alcoholic drinks is seeing changes that are connected with recent demographic movements. There was a big boom in Poland’s real estate market over the review period with the building of new houses and apartments.

Premiumisation as part of lifestyle

Premiumisation continues to be seen across most industries in Poland and is expected to help drive value growth over the forecast period. Increased purchasing power is driving demand for higher quality alcoholic drinks and products with a strong status.
