Executive Summary

Costa Rica's climate was positive for the beer industry as it was characterized by warm weather throughout the year. This lead to more beer consumption which in turn boosted volume growth over 2014. Off-premise consumption was largely driven by unfavorable environmental conditions as well as attractive offers and discounts at leading supermarkets and discount stores. Moreover, convenient single serve ready to drink packages such as cans had further fuelled off-premise consumption.

Key Findings

Imperial was the most popular brand with 59% of total market share in 2015.

Leading brewers promoted glass consumption due to low production cost associated with this pack type over others.

Consumers mostly prefer mainstream beers.

Consumers in Costa Rica were increasingly inclined towards at home beer consumption.
