Alcoholic Drinks Packaging in Italy - New Market Report

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Sep 01 2014

The severe and prolonged economic crisis in Italy continues to negatively impact sales of alcoholic drinks, thereby altering and shifting the packaging landscape and affecting consumption and production patterns. Recent years in Italy have been marked by slowing economic activity, declining disposable incomes, record high unemployment levels and unpopular austerity measures. This situation has affected sales of alcoholic drinks packaging in several ways, including an overall decline in unit sales as well as a modest, but steady shift away from more expensive glass bottles. In response to the difficult economic conditions, consumers have cut back on spending on alcoholic drinks, particularly wine and spirits, which has resulted in an overall decline in unit sales of alcoholic drinks packaging. Sales of glass bottles have been hardest hit, as they are both the largest packaging type as well as the most expensive to manufacture and transport.

Industry Prospects

A very sluggish economic recovery coupled with serious threats of a return to a recessionary environment in Italy will dampen growth prospects for beverage packaging over the forecast period as consumer demand for alcoholic drinks remains listless. Falling disposable incomes for a large swath of Italians means that consumer demand for alcoholic beverages is not expected to return to pre-crisis levels in the next few years. Under this scenario of slow or negative growth for the overall Italian economy, glass bottles, the overwhelmingly dominant packaging type for alcoholic beverages, and also the most expensive to manufacture and transport, will continue to cede ground to alternative packaging types as brand owners continue to seek to reduce costs and attract increasingly frugal consumers.
