Recently released market study: Beer in Bolivia

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Jul 11 2014

Since the application of the Fondo Pro-Leche (Pro-Milk Fund), beer prices have increased, impacting consumption. Beer companies passed this fee onto consumers. As a result, beer prices increased in 2013 by an average 8%. The tax, imposed and updated every year, was also raised in 2013, which had a similar impact on beer sales. Consumers are switching to more affordable beer brands, RTDs or contraband, or reducing their purchasing frequency to avoid paying these price increases. Beer companies are trying to put in place price strategies on economy brands to keep consumers, but the trend towards RTDs and affordable beer is becoming strong in Bolivia.

Competitive Landscape

Cerveceria Boliviana Nacional SA remained the undisputable leader of beer in Bolivia with 93% of total volume sales. The company enjoys a large distribution network that allows it to reach the majority of consumers in Bolivia. It also has a variety of brands that are positioned through the mid-priced, economy and premium segments of the market. However, the company has suffered share losses from 2011 to 2013 due to consumers switching to RTDs and the influence of contraband. Nonetheless, it remains the most important player of beer in Bolivia.

Industry Prospects

Beer is set to post a 1% CAGR in total volume terms over the forecast period. Companies are expected to use price strategies to attract new consumers and retain existing ones for their brands. However, strong penetration and tax increases are expected to negatively influence growth in the forecast period. Constant value sales are likely to increase by a CAGR of 2% in the forecast period, mostly fuelled by unit price increases.
