How Bubbly is the Future of the Global Champagne Market?

FARMINGTON, Conn., April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Celebrations and special events are not complete without flute glasses of citrine and ochre -colored bubbly. All is not sparkling in the global champagne market, however, as 2012 proved to be a disappointing year. It's true that champagne has a direct correlation to economic dynamics and its narrow focus on Western markets intensifies the problem in downturns. Drought conditions set the stage for a low harvest in the European Union (EU) region while prolonged economic slowdown and sovereign debt crisis in EU affected the overall consumption of champagne with global shipment volumes declining in 2012 compared to previous year.

As dark clouds of fresh financial turmoil are gathering, will champagne's sparkle shield the category from a perfect storm of extreme discounting, other sparkling wine's cannibalizing advance and the Champagne region's traditionalism?

New reports available from Global Information Inc provide a premium market perspective on global luxury markets including champagne, fine wines and spirits.
