Strengths

Heineken has an established track record as a brewer with international success. In addition to its flagship Heineken lager, the brewer owns over 200 other brands of beer throughout the world.

Weaknesses

Heineken's weakness may be its size. The brewer has grown so large that there may be little room for it to further expand its market.

Opportunities

Heineken has made acquisitions in emerging markets such as India, Asia and Latin America. These are the markets where Heineken has the greatest potential for growth, and where its greatest opportunities lay.

Threats

Heineken's major threat is Anheuser-Busch InBev (the world's largest brewer). Small, regional brewers in various markets may pose a minor threat as well. Anheuser-Busch InBev poses a threat in the emerging markets, where it is also investing.
