New Market Report: Carbonates in Romania

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Nov 18 2014

The volume stagnation of carbonates in 2013 was the result of the low purchasing power of the population. In fact, carbonates continued to be perceived as providing an affordable price per unit and were considered as traditional soft drinks over the review period due to the penetration of multinational brands like Coca-Cola's and PepsiCo's lines. Low purchasing power was the main reason for the poor performance but strong advertising campaigns and the penetration of carbonates across the whole country kept volume sales positive overall, if stagnant. The efforts that manufacturers made through advertising, promotions and distribution conducted to zero growth despite the negative effects of the crisis on the disposable incomes of the majority of the population.

Competitive Landscape

Accounting for a 61% off-trade value share, Coca-Cola HBC Romania was by far the indisputable leader of carbonates in 2013. Support for this outstanding position came from the wide recognition of the Coca-Cola brand and its association with the Western lifestyle. Heavy advertising campaigns, sales promotion and an impressive distribution network across the country also contributed to the top position at a distance from its main rival PepsiCo through the domestic bottler Quadrant-Amroq Beverages.

Industry Prospects

Carbonates are expected to be impacted by low purchasing power over the forecast period. Consumers' concerns about health and diet will be also a factor affecting forecast growth. The elimination of preservatives from most fruit/vegetable juice will represent a strong reason for more educated consumers to reduce, or even eliminate, carbonates from their diet. However, consumption will remain high within lower-income households, which will continue to perceive carbonates as providing satisfaction at lower unit prices.
