Key Highlights

The western China region is the smallest market for beer in China due to long-term underdevelopment. However, beer consumption in the region has enjoyed a higher growth rate than the national average in recent years.

The future for beer in western China remains optimistic. Per capita consumption is relatively low, there is a vast rural market yet to be fully explored, and the economic situation is improving.

The vast rural market has yet to be fully explored in west China and big brewers invested more than ever in the region, with the announcement of the plans for new breweries by: China Resources Snow Breweries and A-BInBev. Furthermore, CRSB and the China Kweichow Moutai Distillery have announced a joint cooperation agreement to invest in the Guizhou province, and Tsingtao Beer (WuWei) has announced capacity expansion plans.

CRE remained the leading brewer in the west and increased its share slightly. With Snow gaining almost 1% share, in 2011.

The collective share of the top five brewers' in west China is 70%
