Beer refers to a fermented alcoholic beverage produced from malted grain, water, sugar, yeast and hops, that is considered as one of the most widely consumed alcoholic beverages on the global level. It is characterized by a distinctive bitter flavor and a golden to golden-brown color. The beer production process involves four major steps, including the extraction of raw materials with water, boiling with hops, fermentation of strarches, and conditioning. Beer starches are primarily derived from cereal grains, such as malted barley, wheat, corn, rice, and oats, and are brewed with hops in breweries, which act as a natural preservative and stabilizer while imparting bitterness to the beverage. During the brewing process, fermentation of the starch sugars in the wort produces ethanol and carbonation in the resulting beer.

Global Beer Market Trends:

The global market is majorly driven by the escalating demand for diverse alcoholic beverages among the masses. This can be attributed to the rapid westernization resulting in the emerging trend of socialization occasions, especially among the young population. In line with this, a considerable rise in the number of breweries and beer processing facilities is providing an impetus to the market. Moreover, the rapid product utilization as an ingredient for cocktails in distilleries, along with continual technological advancements in the beer manufacturing processes, is creating lucrative growth opportunities in the market. Besides this, numerous marketing strategies adopted by the major market players, such as the introduction of cost-effective packages, several new flavor variants, and widespread promotional activities involving celebrity endorsements, are fueling the market. The market is further fueled by the easy product availability via online and offline organized distribution channels, thus resulting in higher product sales. Some of the other factors contributing to the market include inflating disposable income levels of the consumers, increasing number of alcohol consuming consumers, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 797.6 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 1.8% during 2024-2032
