Key Market Issues
Costs of grain and barley are continuously increasing and this, combined with soaring energy costs and the high cost of other raw materials, such as aluminum, has added to the pressure on brewers. Several brewers are already raising prices, partly due to the additional raw material costs in 2011.
As disposable incomes steadily increase with the recovering economy, the consumer preference for premium products also increases. In order to maximize profit margins, the development of these premium products remains the focus of leading brewers such as Tsingtao and Yanjing
To increase profit margins, manufacturers are reducing the size of packaging from the standard 63-64cl to 50cl or 60cl.
Both domestic and foreign brewers continued their investments in the north region, which will help to meet provincial consumer demands
The industry will further consolidate as mergers and acquisitions (MandA) activities , posing increasing difficulties for the survival of the small brewer
The north China region beer market continued to grow, with good performances from the major brewers.
The trend towards premium beer remained in 2011, it grew ahead of the market and brewers continued to focus on premium new product launches
Lager drives the beer market in the north as it does in the rest of China, and specialty beer has a tiny volume and share.
CRSB's Snow is still growing very strongly in 2011, and remains the leading brand in north China.
Another hugely popular brand, which grew ahead of the market is the state-owned Yanjing beer. Brewed in Beijing, Yanjing enjoys particularly strong popularity in the north of China thanks to its long history and appealing taste.
