Introduction and Landscape

Why was the report written?The 2012 United Kingdom Cider Market Insights report is a high level market research report on the UK cider industry. Published by Canadean, this report provides an excellent way of gaining an in-depth understanding of the dynamics and structure of the market. The report covers total market (on- and off-premise) and includes valuable insight and analysis on cider market trends, brands, brewers, packaging, distribution channels, market valuation and pricing.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?

The UK has a long tradition of cider consumption but historically this has been restricted to certain regions; the West Country and the North East where consumers enjoy a sweeter cider. Today, cider is reaching out to new parts of the UK and this is helping to sustain category growth. The category saw a 1% increase in 2011. However, if you discount the flavored cider figures, then the apple and pear ciders (perry) have actually seen a very small decline for the year.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?Flavored ciders were led by two Swedish brands that are helping to drive the market growth in 2012. The market may have been affected by the popularity of Halewood's Crabbies. New entry Stella Cidre (A-BInBev) successfully brought new drinkers into the category, and combined with a hot dry April, cider sales broke records for this month. The cider boom in April was an important factor in the overall growth for the year

Key Market Issues

The lines between FABs and modern ciders are becoming increasingly blurred. The consumer base is very similar with many young drinkers switching between the two. Currently ciders are faring better but as Crabbies has shown, cider may well lose out if the pendulum swings the other way.

Cider has a reputation for being very weather-sensitive.

White ciders, which had initially been offered as a premium proposition, continue to fade to well under 10% of the market. These strong ciders tarnished the good name of cider and for many years prompted the category to struggle with image problems. They will be hard hit by the minimum pricing. CandC Group has followed Heineken UK's lead and decided to leave the segment.

Main players lose volume and share as smaller brands drive innovation.

In the on-premise the cider market was handicapped by the continued deterioration of the packaged segment. Halewood's Crabbies has gained good listings in the on-trade and is a thorn in the side of the over-ice brands. Strongbow, the leading draught brand by quite some way, dropped back but this was compensated for by the rise of Stowford Press and Thatchers Gold.

Key Highlights

The vogue segment today is flavored cider, it is drawing drinkers from other alcoholic categories into the cider arena. Kopparberg and Rekorderlig have been instrumental in developing this segment but as with pear ciders, the big packaged players have also been attracted into the category.

Many were surprised by the decision of A-BInbev UK to introduce a cider under the Stella Artois umbrella but the brand performed strongly. The brand had an inevitable spike in sales at the beginning but has since proved that it has put down roots, and brought new drinkers into the category.

Glass was the main winner in terms of packaging, with Ardagh glass reporting that its glass cider production, in units, grew from a small initial base by as much as 88%. This will have been further helped by the jump in glass imports due to Kopparberg and Rekorderlig.

The fact that it is the higher end ciders that are performing so strongly has meant that, while volume may only be edging forward, value is rising significantly.

Magners is reported to be back in value growth for the first time in five years: this year's volume growth did not come by sacrificing value. The brand continues to be innovative and has made considerable gains in the draught market.

In their session at @ThingsExpo, Shyam Varan Nath, Principal Architect with GE, and Dr. Sarah Cooper, M2Mi's VP Business Development and Engineering, will explore the IoT cloud-based platform technologies driving this change including privacy controls, data transparency and integration of real time context w...
There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!
Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...
As a company adopts a DevOps approach to software development, what are key things that both the Dev and Ops side of the business must keep in mind to ensure effective continuous delivery? In his session at DevOps Summit, Mark Hydar, Head of DevOps, Ericsson TV Platforms, will share best practices and provide helpful tips for Ops teams to adopt an open line of communication with the development side of the house to ensure success between the two sides.
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured? Who owns the identity? How is identity ...
The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries.
