Executive Summary

Mar 2019
PROSPECTS
Healthier alternatives for health-conscious consumers

Carbonates in Australia continue to be impacted by the growing health consciousness of consumers. This has translated into lower per capita consumption of carbonates.

Traditional carbonates in decline

Health consciousness has had a direct impact on traditional carbonates, such as other regular cola. Other regular cola recorded the strongest off-trade volume decline within carbonates in 2018, followed by orange carbonates.

Carbonates used as mixers enjoy growth as cocktail culture and premiumisation within beverages increases

Premiumisation within non-alcoholic drinks continued in 2018.The craft trend within beverages more broadly, seen in the growth of both craft beer and spirits and the cocktail culture, had a positive impact on premium brands used as mixers, such as Fever-Tree, with the brand experiencing growing share within both ginger ale and tonic water/other bitters.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE
The prospect of a sugar tax prompts manufacturers to cut sugar levels and offer healthier alternatives

In June 2018, the Australian Beverages Council declared that its members would cut their use of sugar by 20% by 2025, with the commitment incorporating all non-alcoholic drinks. This move reflects the trend of Australians seeking to limit their sugar consumption.

Coke Zero eliminated as Coke No Sugar takes hold

Australia’s number one company in carbonates, Coca-Cola Amatil, will complete its phase-out of Coke Zero by September 2018. As a result, the brand recorded reduced share in 2018 and its replacement, Coca-Cola No Sugar, introduced in June 2017, saw significant brand share growth over the year.

Private label increases its share within carbonates

The off-trade volume share of private label products within carbonates has increased since the start of the review period, with consumers becoming more price-driven. In off-trade volume terms, ginger ale saw the greatest proportion of sales attributable to private label products, equating to roughly one in four products sold.
