The Liquor Industry in South Africa 2018 - Includes Profiles of 48 Producers, Distributors and Wholesalers -

DUBLIN--()--The "The Liquor Industry in South Africa 2018" report has been added to's offering.

The detailed report on the South African liquor industry provides statistics for the sector, describes current conditions and trends, and discusses the impact of new regulations and other factors influencing the success of the sector.

Included in the report are profiles of 48 producers, distributors, wholesalers and retailers of alcoholic beverages including the major grocery retailers, major wine and spirits producers such as Distell and DGB as well as numerous independent wine farms.

The South African liquor industry, including manufacture, wholesale and retail, is valued at between R106.1bn and R129bn. The industry is considered mature and growth is largely organic. Total 2017 liquor consumed was almost 4.24 billion litres, reflecting growth of 1.9% over 2016, driven by a growing population, aggressive expansion in retail liquor and product premiumisation. Growth is expected in 2018 despite the poor economic climate and will be aided by currency weakness reflected in rising exports.

Industry Developments

The Liquor Amendment Bill is expected to have a significant effect on the sector. In the wine industry, there is an ongoing decline in primary grape producer numbers and area under vines as the sector remains largely unsustainable at current input cost levels. The illegal and illicit liquor trade continues to have a major impact on the industry and the fiscus, and it is estimated that approximately 50% of liquor consumed in sub-Saharan Africa is produced illegally.

The expansion of major grocery retailers' liquor brands, including Tops and LiquorShop, has substantially changed liquor retail in South Africa. The burgeoning craft gin industry indicates there is still room for new players and growth and innovation in the industry.
