Beer Market is projected to reach USD 918.73 Billion by 2028

The Global Beer Market is projected to reach USD 918.73 Billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 2.1% during the forecast period. In recent years, the availability of innovative flavors and increasing popularity of beer over other alcoholic beverages have led to the growing consumption of beer. Additionally, changing lifestyle and the influence of western culture have altered the choices of consumers towards alcoholic beverages, particularly beer.

The craft beer, which contains fresh ingredients and creative flavors combining fruits, salt, and tart aromas, has witnessed growing popularity among the world's millennial consumers. In addition, a surge in female consumers and exceptional growth of young population will facilitate the growth of the market. According to World Population Prospect of United Nations (2013), by 2030, the global youth population will reach 1.3 billion, which will provide a major boost to the global market.

There has been a steady rise in the consumption of low amount of liquor in beverages. The sale of low or negligible amounts of alcohol in drinks has grown significantly due to the availability of new ranges with improved taste and the growing interest of health-conscious consumers. Further, the low-alcohol beers are more affordable as compared to the other liquor-based beverages. Low or no-alcohol beers have never fared better and the growth of small independent breweries provides a testimony to this trend, which shows no sign of wavering. It means that people, who choose not to drink or limit intake, now have plenty of tasty options.

Breweries have seen an increasing demand for unfilled beer cans during the Covid-19 pandemic, as more buyers have decided to buy beer to drink at home. This is largely due to the success of craft beer in the global beer market. It developed with the beer fans toying with their home brew kits, experimenting with various flavors and ways to renew and spice up with the additives, swapping strains of hops, forte alcohol, and creating their personal brews to innovate traditional beer.

Enthusiastic craft beer makers and home brewers have spurred the growth of the global market. Sophisticated consumers are demanding boutique, unique, and premium products. Increasing number of craft breweries and new entrants are further adding to the growth of the market.
