the key drivers behind recent market changes?
Vietnam remains the largest beer market in South East Asia and is one of the most attractive destinations for worldwide investors. The slight decrease in growth was mostly due to the economic difficulties which reduced consumer spending. The prolonged winter in the north also hindered beer consumption in this area for five months of the year. However, drinking beer has become a deeply rooted habit and a drinking culture for many consumers. Increases in tourism and a more social lifestyle also contributed to the growth of beer in 2012.

Key Market Issues
The Vietnam beer market in 2012 grew slightly less than in 2011 but still managed 9% growth, with total beer consumption of over 34 m hl.
In 2012, the premium beer segment grew at 18% compared to the 8% of the mainstream segment. Although the consumption volume of premium beers is only about one fifth that of mainstream, such a high growth has shown that there is an increasing number of consumers who are willing to pay for a premium product.
Preferential investment policies, together with shortened procedures on paper work and permission granting, appear to be good reasons for the increasing trend of MandA. Thus a more competitive landscape is expected for Vietnam's beer market in the near future.
In 2012, Vietnam GDP grew by 5.03%, missing the government target of 5.2% set at the beginning of the year. Industry and construction, which make up almost half of total GDP, grew only 4.52% in 2012.
Typically peaking at about 39degC in June to September, the peak season for beer consumption in the north of Vietnam was hindered by the prolonged winter in 2012, reducing volume consumption over this critical period.
Merger and acquisition activity took place in 2012, of which the most noticeable case was Heineken taking control of Asia Pacific Breweries, the producer of the Tiger brand, in Q4-12. The takeover will enable the company to execute a more thorough and strategic plan in Asia, including Vietnam - one of its most important markets.
Sapporo, a new entry to the Vietnamese market, was very quick to implement a series of activities to spread its brand as fast as possible, sponsoring several cultural events such as music and beer festivals throughout Vietnam.
Aggressive activities by key players with strong financial status and solid experience have posed a great threat to the small local breweries with out of date technology, small market coverage, low marketing budgets and limited access to capital.
About 10% of beer is unpackaged. This consists of 'bai hoi' draft beer which originated in North Vietnam. It is unpasteurized beer with a low alcohol content (approximately 3%) that is sold in mugs in street bars and stalls. Each day a fresh batch is brewed and sold at a much lower price than draft or bottled beer.
Approximately 70% of all beer consumed in Vietnam was accounted for by on-premise channels, mainly thanks to the habit of Vietnamese consumers drinking beer away from home.
