Alcohols are the intoxicating beverage consisting of spirits, wine and beer. It is defined by the alcohol content and the major raw material used in it. For instance, spirits are mainly made by fermenting grains and sugar, whereas wine is made by fermenting fruits/berries. Indian alcohol market has been flourishing since 2001 and registered growth between 7-12% till 2011 when the growth finally declined due to heavy import taxes, state government taxes, excise duty and political instability in election season. The year 2013 was a great fall in Indian alcohol market when the spirits volume actually declined by 2-3% in India. Alcohol industry is a part of huge US$ 12 billion beverage industry of India excluding milk and milk products. Indian alcohol market is dominated by whiskey which falls under spirit category. However, the wine market is expected to show highest growth in the forecast period. The Indian alcohol market is broadly segmented as spirits, beer and wine. Spirits are further sub-segmented into whiskey, rum/brandy, vodka, gin and others. The market is projected to register a flat growth in the forecast period. Consumers are largely inclined towards quality alcohol due to increasing disposable income and better standard of living. Other drivers include greater inclination towards social drinking as well as women indulging into alcohol consumption. As India has huge youth population, the demand of alcohol would remain high in the coming years. The market saw a boom in Vodka sales in past decade as Vodka was positioned as the alcohol for women. Youth largely prefer beer and the salaried youth are inclined toward whiskey and rum. In beer segment, more than 85% of the market is dominated by strong beer rather than mild. There exists quite a few restraints in the market such as high taxes, stringent government regulations on manufacturing and selling liquor, and ban on advertisements among others. Alcohol consumption is also subjected to the overall economy’s growth in terms of gross net income per capita and household expenditure. Thus, development in the economy would give a thrustto the alcohol market further but in a less pronounced manner. One of the most notable trend is the demand of premium liquor among the consumers. The growth of premium segment would surpass the overall growth of alcohol market due to greater exposure towards foreign brands. India has seen a burst of high net worth individuals in past two decades and the list is ever increasing, which would fuel the growth of market in premium segment. In addition to travel retail theatres and duty free retailing would further boost the growth of premium alcohol in the market. Companies are launching exclusive new brands and products at premium prices to increase their margins and capture the upper class consumers. In September 2014, SABMiller, which also happen to be the second largest player in beer segment (after Kingfisher) launched its premium brand “Miller Ace” in India to compete with brands such as Carlsberg and Anheuser-Busch InBev. Many international brands such as Diageo plc, PernodRicard, and The Carlsberg Group already forayed into the market with their million-dollar brands. The market is also moving towards consolidation with large number of acquisitions and joint ventures. One of the biggest mergers in recent past is that of London based Diageo plc and Indian firm United Spirits Limited, (USL). Diageo acquired 54.78 % share in USL by shelling whopping US$ 3 billion by mid-2014. USL is the dominant player in Indian alcohol market commanding majority of market share. Some of the major players in Indian Alcohol Market are United Spirits Limited, RadicoKhaitan, Jagatjit Industries, Globus Spirits, Allied Blenders and Distillers Pvt. Ltd., Sula Vineyards, SABMiller India Ltd. and John Distilleries Pvt Ltd among others.

Many intraoperative complications occurring during third molar surgery are described in the literature. Unilateral trochlear nerve palsy secondary to dental anaesthesia is a rare complication. We report the case of a 36-year-old healthy man, ASA I classification, requiring upper third molar extraction. Articaine 1:200,000 epinephrine for right posterior superior alveolar (PSA) nerve block was administered locally in the mucobuccal fold above the upper third molar. A few minutes after PSA nerve block the patient experienced double-vision. The patient was subsequently visited by an ophthalmologist and the condition was diagnosed as transient unilateral vertical diplopia due to temporary paralysis of the superior oblique muscle as a result of the anaesthetic solution involving the IV cranial nerve. The authors report this unusual case and discuss the possible anatomical pathways that might explain this rare phenomenon. © 2013 International Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.

Groupmatics, an online group sales platform based in Cleveland, OH, and the United Soccer League (USL) are pleased to announce a collaborative partnership. The relationship between Groupmatics and the USL will allow teams to utilize the third-party technology to increase revenue opportunities and streamline much of the group sales process between team’s sales executives and their group clients. Groupmatics’ initial success with the Pittsburgh Riverhounds drove further discussions to complete a league-wide deal. “Collaborating with a forward-thinking, progressive league such as the USL aligns with our strategic development, and we can’t wait to get started,” said Groupmatics’ Senior Director of Business Development, Dan Badders. “We feel strongly that we are the group sales technology all USL teams have been looking for to take their business to the next level.” Starting in the 2017 season, Groupmatics will be the alternative, online option for USL teams to manage their group sales. Groupmatics is part of a successful and increasingly popular culture shift of technology that is transforming the ticketing industry. With the first-to-market technology, Groupmatics is changing the game by streamlining a rather tedious traditional group sales process. The platform provides a variety of highly sought out features for sales reps and their group leaders. USL teams will now have an ability to gain further insight into a large part of their nightly attendance that was previously unfound. “As the USL continues to grow, we are always looking for new technology to help our clubs continue to grow their attendance and increase customer accessibility and service to purchase tickets as well as grow the individual club’s customer base. With the Groupmatics platform we see all of these things coming to fruition,” said John Cochol, USL Senior Director of Club Services. The two organizations have seen much recent success. The USL closed out the 2016 season with a 33 percent increase in ticket sales from 2015, while rapidly-growing Groupmatics has been nationally recognized at several ticket conferences in the past year. Groupmatics has partnered with over 65 teams across 13 different leagues, and this dynamic partnership seeks to bring forth further successes for both parties. About Groupmatics - Groupmatics, headquartered in Cleveland, OH, is a first-to-market online group-ticketing platform used by professional sports teams and entertainment venues to manage group sales and collect attendee data. The platform, which is flexible across all ticketing systems, allows for promotion, management, and purchase to occur via a custom event page. About the USL - The 2016 season saw the USL record a total attendance of almost 1.5 million for its 29 teams, a 33 percent increase from 2015. The league has more than doubled in size since 2014 and has built a stable, highly-competitive professional soccer league positioned for long-term success. This year, the USL introduced six teams. The 2017 season will feature the debuts of Tampa Bay, Ottawa and Reno 1868 FC. Nashville SC begins play in 2018, and additional expansion is on the horizon.

Leagues that choose to modernize operations through our platform are more responsive to their members and keep all parties better connected and informed; they are leagues that are well positioned for long-term success.” At the forefront of innovation in athletics, Teamworks offers an unparalleled depth and breadth of functionalities to some of the biggest names in sports.
