Berglöf, Gustav and Kellidis, Anastasios, 2019. The demand on unregistered alcohol in Sweden 2001–2016. First cycle, G2E. Uppsala: SLU, Dept. of Economics



The main aim of this study was to estimate the demand for unregistered alcohol in Sweden 2001-2016 and to provide understanding on the determinants of demand for unregistered alcohol. The method used was a multiple linear OLS regression with fixed annual and regional effects. It was found that the relative share of the unregistered market
A.correlates positively to prices on spirits;
B.correlates negatively to Danish excise duties on wine;
C.correlates positively to a net income increase; and,
D.is dependent on the proximity to the Danish border.

Conclusively, the unregistered market gives rise to various external effects; why it is recommended to review the price setting system of Systembolaget, alternatively, to harmonize European alcohol policies.
