5. Argentina Beer Market Insights 2012 - Highlights
- Prices have been growing at fast rates, causing imports to be more expensive and local products less competitive. Deterioration of consumer savings could, very shortly, affect mass consumption, complicating growth in terms of beer consumption.
- While the premium and super-premium segments managed to grow in terms of percentage points, mainstream has such a large volume that variations in other segments are not sufficient to drive the category.
- Quilmes has been an active promoter of the National Football Team in the Copa América, as well as at many music festivals, among which the Quilmes Rock festival was the highest point.
- Isenbeck was also active in the promotional activity, with a large presence in social media over the internet, trying to grasp young consumers into their brand.
- The outlook for 2012 will be dominated by uncertainty. Inflation rates continue to grow, and the government has recently limited all imports in order to stabilize the demand for the dollar. It is expected that a reduced number of imported beers will enter the market and exported beers will drop in number as well.

6. Brazil Beer Market Insights 2012 - Highlights
- A migration from Brazilian cachaça (Brazilian rum) has occurred, especially based on investments made by companies in distribution, advertising and also from purchase power improvements. It is expected that another multinational company will enter the Brazilian market in 2012, causing some change to the segmentation of the market.
- Beer specialties franchises have been launched, improving superpremium presence in off-premise channels (kiosks) and also beer clubs, with monthly premium and superpremium beer tasting.
- Imports gained importance, supported by beer specialty franchises and improving distribution from trade companies. With several investments made by metal can producers, it is expected that this pack material will reach 40% share in the next five years without suffering shortage of packs, which has occurred in the past years.
- Some of the players and brands known as discount beers have been redesigned and repositioned, intending to fulfill gaps left by investments made to premium and superpremium beers. These brands have gained share.
- The dramatic decline in the volume of ''Others'' reflects the impact of the SICOBE measures, the retreat from illegal players and also, the impact on legal discount beers.

8. Columbia Beer Market Insights 2012 - Highlights
- The premium and super premium segments achieved the highest growth rates. One of the main drivers behind the growth was the higher consumption of imported beers. Also the artisanal beer segment is generating significant incremental volume sales for the super premium segment.
- 2012 is expected to be very positive for the beer industry, not only are the macroeconomics of the country favouring the demand for beer, but also the leading companies are expected to encourage consumption by offering new products.
- During 2011, the sales of imported beer grew significantly. This segment has been favoured by the increasing number of bars and pubs which offer a wide range of imported brands. Also the wider and improved availability of imported beer not only in off-premise but also in on-premise channels has favoured its consumption.
- During 2011, mid-alcohol content beers, mainly 4.5% Abv, continued to absorb most of the sales. Strong beers had a negligible presence, only some imported brands and some artisanal brewers offer stronger beers, but sales are slowly growing. Light beers showed a good performance.
- During 2011, SABMiller was the undisputed market leader with over 99% of the market. This means that the beer industry in Colombia is a monopoly. This situation is not expected to change in the short term, however, small brewers are gaining ground, particularly in the super premium segment.
