Update: Beer Global Market Report 2021 Including Market Size, Share & Growth Analysis, Global Beer Consumption Statistics

LONDON, April 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global beer market reached a value of nearly $189 billion in 2020, having declined at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -1.4% since 2015. The market is expected to grow from $189 billion in 2020 to $281 billion in 2025 at a rate of 8.2% . The market is then expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2025 and reach $370 billion in 2030.

Going forward, low interest rates and a rise in alcohol consumption will drive the growth of the beer market. Low interest rates in most developed countries aid the growth of the beer market. For instance, in 2019, the European Central Bank decreased interest rates to -0.5% on deposits from banks to encourage lending. This created a flow of cheap money for investment, both in developed and developing economies. It also encouraged borrowing and discouraged saving in advanced markets, helping to drive spending as the cost of borrowing money is less under a low interest rate environment. As companies in the beverages industry are capital intensive, low interest rates led to increased investments in the market, thereby driving the growth of the beer market during the historic period.

Increase in alcohol consumption contributed to the growth of the beer market during the historic period. Globally, there has been an increase in alcohol consumption during the historic period. For instance, in 2017, 77% of the Chinese consumed alcohol at least once in a while.  During 2010-2017, per capita alcohol consumption in India and Japan increased by 5.9 liters and 7.9 liters respectively. Changing lifestyles, increasing affluence, and stress drinking are some major factors driving the demand for alcohol.

Impact Of COVID-19 On The Global Beer Market :

During strict lockdown periods in various countries, not only were bars and restaurants shut, but liquor stores were also forced to temporarily stop operations in efforts to curb the spread of the virus. The shutdown of liquor stores, bars, restaurants, along with temporary closure of cross-border trading greatly impacted sales and revenues in the alcoholic beverages market. Even as the lockdown period eased and some bars and restaurants resumed operations, the enormous sales generated from alcoholic beverages suffered major setback as consumers became hesitant with the socialization aspect of dining out. The number of consumers significantly reduced as people became aware of the health implications and the risk of exposure. Alcohol sales were further offset by the collapse in on-premises sales and catering for events and large gatherings.

COVID-19 has impacted the alcohol industry (including beer) to a great extent, which has resulted in a decrease in out-of-home alcohol consumption. According to a survey conducted by Edelweiss Securities Analysts, out-of-home alcohol consumption, which contributes 15% to spirits and 25% to beer sales volumes, will take a big hit in India due to the pandemic.
