2013-08-26 09:54:42 - Fast Market Research recommends "New Developments in Radlers, Shandies, and Pre-Mixed Beer Drinks" from Datamonitor, now available
Sales of radler and shandy-type drinks have rocketed over the last five years due to their alignment with trends towards moderate drinking, refreshment, female beer drinking, and willingness to try new tastes. The cider boom highlights the demand for novel beer alternatives, and how national beer trends can now readily go global; will the radler be the next cider?

Radler volume sales in Germany are more than 10 times as high as sales in any non-European country, at 349 million liters in 2012. Slow growth of 0.5% per year comes in the context of a market where overall beer sales have fallen by 1.2% annually.
42% of global drinkers under 34 say that they consume flavored beers on at least an occasional basis, while only 18% of drinkers over 65 say the same. Of the largest radler volume markets, all but Spain are in Central and Eastern Europe, with Germany being the largest, followed by Spain, Poland, Russia, and the Czech Republic.
Younger drinkers who seek new flavor profiles tend to prefer higher alcohol strength products, while the demand for lower-strength products is concentrated among older drinkers. This creates a dilemma for radler marketers. Alcohol-free radlers will represent an increasing proportion of the total market moving forward.
