Global Alcoholic Beverages Market to Reach US$ 1,756.3 Billion by 2027, Propelled by Demand for Premium Products

Published on Oct 15, 2019

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Alcoholic Beverages Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, finds that the global alcoholic beverages market size reached US$ 1,516.5 Billion in 2021. Alcoholic beverages are drinks that are fermented from sugars found in berries, fruits, grains, plant saps, honey and tubers. The anaerobic fermentation takes place by the utilization of yeast, which converts sugars into ethanol and carbon dioxide. Depending upon the fermentable material used, this process imparts characteristic flavors and aromas to the beverages, which are further categorized as beers, wines and spirits. The alcohol content of the beverage usually depends upon the type of the product and the period it is stored to age. Since alcohol is classified as a depressant, it is widely consumed for its physiological and psychological effects as a recreational drink.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Alcoholic Beverages Market Trends:

Increasing alcohol consumption, especially among the early career professionals, coupled with the rising trend of corporate gatherings and mid-week parties, has primarily facilitated the market growth. Rapid urbanization, inflating disposable income and improving lifestyles of the consumers have impelled the demand for premium and super-premium alcohol variants across the globe, thereby bolstering the market growth. In addition to this, several companies are investing significantly in the e-retail sector. The convenience and variety offered by online platforms are currently influencing the sales of alcoholic beverages. Furthermore, several manufacturers are incorporating bio-degradable packaging solutions and sustainable methods in the manufacturing process on account of growing environmental-consciousness among the masses. For instance, Carlsberg, a Denmark-based leading brewery group, aims to attain zero carbon emissions at its breweries by 2030. According to the global alcoholic beverages market report, the market value is projected to reach US$ 1,756.3 Billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 2.7% during 2022-2027.
