About This Report

Aug 2019

Ranked third in beer globally, Carlsberg operates in three core regions - Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific and Western Europe. Expansion in the emerging markets of Asia Pacific is a strategic focus for the company. Carlsberg is also working to shift its offer upmarket to better align with prevailing demand trends in mature markets such as the UK. However, competition at the higher end of beer is intensifying, as leading international brewers increasingly prioritise value generation.
