A/ Market trends

Thanks to cider market research, we can gather the main fact and information about the French market.

 Cider production is dropping: After a good 2010 year, production of cider marketed has dropped again in 2011 (less 3% of cider volume). This evolution can be explained by the demand apathy on the market. In addition, the unfavorable summer climatic conditions in 2010 have led to this result, especially in the main cider growing area. This bad result show the important difficulties met by the profession for many years, because of the market maturity.

Evolution of cider production (volume):

 Cider sales are on the decline: the volumes sells in superstore dropped under the symbolic mark of 60 millions of liters exhausted. In 2010, 57,4 millions of cider liters have been sold in superstore (hypermarket, supermarket and hard discount store), producing a turnover of 111,8 millions euros in this retail outlets.

 Cider prices are rising: the rising of production cost (up 45% since 2000) reflected on consumers with higher prices. Cider and fruit wines prices have increased by 22,9% between 2000 and 2001.

After many unsuccessful modernization attempts, (flavored cider, metallic packaging…), the national and regional ciders companies have revived with their origins in banking on traditional values: regional or bio ciders have grown in number in order to reach news consumers. The sales of bio cider in superstore have increased but stay still limited. Indeed, the quantity of specific apples necessary for bio cider production is not adequate in France for the moment. More recently, new attempts of offer diversification with products more moderns have been launched in order to build up a younger clientele and create new ways of consumption, especially in festive place (cafés, hotels, bars, restaurants). For example, the “autumn cider” launched since October 2009, an operation extended next years. Furthermore, the cider making companies have launched many advertising campaign to promote the product among potential consumers.
