Carbonates producers in Egypt will continue to face rising costs over the forecast period due to the depreciation of the pound, import restrictions and inflationary pressures fuelled by external factors, most notably the fallout of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. With the same factors set to further erode purchasing power among consumers, manufacturers will seek to reduce overheads in production, transportation, logistics and other areas of the supply chain so as to limit price hikes as much as is feasible while still protecting their margins.
Prices for most carbonates brands in Egypt increased in 2022, with those for 1-litre bottles of Pepsi and Coca-Cola going up by 75 piasters, for example. Despite cost-cutting measures by producers, it is expected high inflation will continue to drive up unit prices in the short-to-medium term, which will constrain the potential for off-trade volume sales growth during the early years of the forecast period.
E-commerce has been gradually growing in importance as a distribution channel for carbonates in Egypt for a number of years, and its off-trade volume share is likely to continue rising over the forecast period. Further gains will be supported by the fact that, due to the fallout of COVID-19, many people have recently become comfortable with shopping for groceries online and developed a greater appreciation for the convenience this method provides.
