The Brazilian Beer, Cider & Pre-mixed Spirits Market: What Consumers Drink and Why? 31 October 2013 Why was the report written? Marketers in the Beer, Cider & Pre-mixed Spirits market face a major challenge.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing? As consumer confidence increases with economic recovery, consumer trends will be directly affected. Since the global financial crisis of 2008–2009 the organized retail market has been characterized by an increase in the amount of discounted and own-brand products.

The survey-based data provided in this report examines over 20 consumer trends that affect the market and examines the share of consumption across 26 consumer groups.
