Breweries in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Breweries in Canada

The Breweries industry in Canada has experienced strong growth over the past five years, benefiting from the increased popularity of craft beer made from local microbreweries. While this resulted in revenue and enterprise growth from a range of new small-scale breweries, consumers have shifted away from the traditional light and premium beer brands that currently represent most of industry brewers' sales. Due to the rising popularity in small-scale breweries, there are concerns regarding the long-term growth prospects of the industry's international brewers. These large international brewers have been significantly pressured as they depend on high-volume sales of their respective flagship value products. Industry growth is forecast to slow down over the five years to 2023, as the craft beer market becomes saturated with microbreweries and consumers continue to shift focus away from traditional light and premium beer brands.

The Breweries industry in Canada produces alcoholic beverages, such as beer and malt liquor as well as nonalcoholic beer, using water, barley, hops, yeast and other occasional adjuncts. Manufacturers of wine, spirits and other alcoholic beverages are not included in this industry.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
