Top Global Brewers Looking for a Consolidation Move

 

The SABMiller bid for HeinekenNV has reignited the possibility for major consolidations in the global beer market, which hasn’t seen much movement in that direction over the last few years. This bid was a defensive action against the expected move by AB-InBev to buy SABMiller in the future. If that purchase occurs, then AB-InBev would control nearly a third of the global beer market. No matter what happens next, the next few years will be an exciting time for global beer players.
