Overview of Alcoholic Beverage Market

The alcoholic beverage market is expected to reach $1.6 billion by 2022. This is a 2.1% increase from 2015 where the market was evaluated at $1.3 billion. For centuries, cultures across the globe have consumed alcoholic beverages in some form or another. Much of the market is constructed from local specialties which mean new and locally owned brands have a fighting chance to compete in a large sector. A small majority of the market is formulated from commercial brands that are capable of producing and reaching customers on a global scale. The numbers found in the research are expressed by the pricing which is determined by the cost of production and the duties levied.

What Drives the Alcoholic Beverage Market?

Research is suggesting the surge in the beverage market is a result of an increase in the young-adult demographic purchasing more beverages. The economy is in a bit of an upswing. More individuals are finding themselves with a large portion of disposable income, and they want to spend it on premium alcoholic beverages and products. Obvious health concerns over consumption will see the market plateau, but alcoholic beverage mergers and acquisitions will play a role in maintaining success throughout the sector for different brands and companies. Larger companies like Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV and Bacardi Limited are expanding their strategy to include agreements, product launches, and expansions to sustain healthy growth.

Global Beverage Dominance

The alcoholic beverage market is comprised of beer, wines, and distilled beverages. But, throughout the sector, one in particular, has reigned supreme — beer. In 2015, it dominated the industry and owed much of its value to high global consumption. In the market research, beer is still expected to surpass the others in dominance, but distilled beverages are predicted to grow at a much faster rate. According to Allied Market Research Team Lead, Eswara Prasad:

"The demand for distilled spirits in the alcohol industry is relatively high, owing to the shift towards high-grade spirit variants. Higher consumption of hybrid, mixed, and flavored spirits are expected in the near future, due to the downward trend of the beer market."
