You are also reminded that you must rely upon the interview that you held with the client
as part of task 3. Remember each interview will be different.
You are reminded this is a letter to a client therefore an academic response to the facts is

Change in the market is inevitable. The market keeps on changing in response to different factors that drive the market, both internal and external factors.  Market regulations exist to ensure that there is a guiding framework that regulates how the market responds to these changes. The Australian beer market is experiencing radical changes in the recent past. The market has witnessed decreased growth of the premium beer segment and a growing demand for craft beer.  This study will therefore review the changes in the Australian beer market in light of the existing market regulation and economic theories to see how the players are responding and make recommendations that should be observed.
