Collaboration Between Fashion and Spirits at a Tipping Point?

Spiros_MalandrakisAnalyst Insight by Spiros Malandrakis - Senior Alcoholic Drinks Analyst

View Spiros Malandrakis' profile on LinkedIn

Oscar Wilde had once famously, and most provocatively, quipped: “Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.” And therein lies its beauty too, one might add. Intriguingly, this is also increasingly the case with alcoholic drinks.

While trend cycles tend to last longer than 6 months it is becoming an indisputable fact that drinking patterns evolve much faster and more frequently than they used to. These changes are not due to some inexplicable, rapid biological mutation of regional or global palates.

The on-going shift from vodka to whiskeys - or the proliferation of bourbon within that whiskey stable in terms of current market dynamics- should hence not be analysed only through the simplistic perspective of flavour profiles or even macroeconomic developments.

Euromonitor International attended The Gadget Show Live, held at the NEC, Birmingham, UK’s second largest city, over 7-12 April 2015.

The exhibition’s wide demographic range attracted children as well as adults. The specific sections targeting children included the Build Your Own Gadgets zone as well as Kids Tech Toy Trail (sponsored by Vivid), where children were able to play with a number of toys, namely Crayola’s Colour Alive, Real FX Slotless Racing and i-Que Intelligent Robot.

IllegalAlcohol

El equipo de consultoría de Euromonitor International presentó los resultados del estudio sobre el mercado de Alcohol Ilegal en Bolivia, investigación que se realizó entre diciembre de 2014 y marzo de 2015.  Según la investigación, en 2013 el Estado dejó de recibir 56 millones de dólares por la evasión fiscal del contrabando de bebidas alcohólicas en el país, el resto de pérdidas se debieron a falsificaciones y a la producción artesanal ilegal. Los objetivos del estudio incluyeron medir el tamaño del alcohol ilegal y su impacto en la comercialización legal del mismo, así como comprender la cadena de valor del mercado. Los resultados obtenidos en este estudio entregan una base  que permite comprender el alcance de las actividades ilícitas en torno al alcohol en Bolivia, y permiten empezar a crear conciencia entre los consumidores y las autoridades, así como construir un plan estratégico para abordar y enfrentar la situación.

TripAdvisor Challenges OTAs through Instant Booking Functionality

Angelo RossiniAnalyst Insight by Angelo Rossini - Contributing Analyst

View Angelo Rossini's profile on LinkedIn

TripAdvisor is currently one of the “Big Three” global players in online travel in terms of market capitalisation and web traffic, together with Priceline and Expedia. However, the company, in spite of its strong growth over the past five years in terms of both revenues and popularity with consumers, is less able to monetise its traffic than the other two big online travel players as it is currently not processing transactions on its sites, but provides links to external sites, and especially to its two largest customers, which are Expedia and Priceline themselves, earning advertising fees for this service.

The goal to finding a way to better monetise its traffic was behind the launch in 2014 of the Instant Booking functionality, based on a hybrid model that is between the OTA and media models. If this new functionality meets the favour of hotel companies and consumers, TripAdvisor will be able to increase its revenues and, at the same time, will become a direct competitor for OTAs.
