Key Market Issues
Hite and Oriental Brewery have continued to lead the market in 2012. Together they hold 96% of the Korean beer market.
OB has now overtaken Hite as the market leader due to a superior management system and internal problems within Hite.
Imported beer continues to increase the choices available to consumers, with Budweiser and Asahi among the leading players.
Packaging remains standardized in South Korea, with refillable glass bottles easily leading the market.
The export of Korean beer is growing strongly. There is growing success in Mongolia and Australia with Cass and OB Golden Lager.
OB is strengthening its distribution network across non-metropolitan areas, where Hite previously held an iron grip.
Increased costs in raw materials, logistics and tax duties have led average prices to grow in 2012.
Japanese beers such as Asahi and Kirin have made inroads into the market thanks to the increasing popularity of Japanese pub-style restaurants called Izakaya.
Off-premise sales have been increasing, with consumers taking advantage of greater beer varieties and lower prices in supermarkets.
