Canada Beer and Cider Market Insights to 2026 - Market Overview, Category and Segment Analysis, Company Market Share, Distribution, Packaging and Consumer Insights


Following 1.8% growth in 2019, the Canadian economy entered a recession in 2020, with the country’s real gross domestic product (GDP) shrinking by 5.4%. This was the country’s worst economic performance on record. The contraction can mainly be attributed to the implementation of lockdown restrictions in response to the outbreak of COVID-19. These restrictions had a huge impact on the economy, primarily affecting the tourism, aviation, foodservice, hospitality, and manufacturing industries. However, in 2021, the Canadian economy is expected to perform strongly with the reopening of the economy after the third wave of COVID-19. It is expected to record growth of 6.1% following the efficient vaccination roll out, provided there are no further COVID-19 outbreaks, which would once again restrict mobility.
