South Africa has one of the cheapest average prices for beer globally, but the category is expected to see price increases, based on rising input costs and inflationary pressures. More specifically, beer prices are expected to be impacted by various factors, including increased transportation costs, the rising cost of raw materials (including grains and hops), and production costs.
The South African Breweries (SAB), owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev), has committed to invest at least an additional ZAR5.8 billion in South Africa across the beer value chain during the forecast period.
South Africa is expected to see heightened load shedding during the forecast period, as the electricity supply remains severely constrained, with little additional generational capacity being added to the national electrical grid, all while demand continues to increase. This is despite the government’s attempts to improve the supply of electricity through several measures, including major policy proposals, such as allowing independent power producers to generate electricity that can be fed back into the grid.

An alcoholic drink usually brewed from malt, sugar, hops and water and fermented with yeast. Some beers are made by fermenting a cereal, especially barley, and therefore not flavoured by hops. Alcohol content for beer is varied – anything up to and over 14% ABV (alcohol by volume), although 3.5% to 5% is most common. Beer is the aggregation of lager, dark beer, stout and non/low alcohol beer.See All of Our Definitions
