“The super-premium beer segment is in slight decline, while the economy is the most affected. I expect a 6-7% decline for the super-premium segment. But summer is a peak period for beer consumption, it will be more difficult in other seasons. We expect consumers to trade up their beer choices to not necessarily the cheapest ones, but to those brands with the best quality/price ratio”, said Grant McKenzie (photo).

The annual volume of super-premium segment is at around 900.000 hectoliters, Ursus’ VP seeing stagnation ahead.

Peroni brand holds 8% market share in the super-premium category, but stays below 1% in the entire beer industry. 50% of the production output is destined to HoReCa, and the remaining half to traditional retail.

Peroni’s main competitors are Heineken and Stella Artois.

According to data provided by the company, 70% of Romanian Peroni beer consumers are male.
