The Breweries industry has benefited from consumers opting for affordable beer over other alcoholic beverages during and following the recession. As disposable income levels continue to strengthen over the next five years, the craft and premium beer segments are expected to bolster revenue growth; however, contraction in total industry sales volumes will slightly offset this growth. Since the market for specialty brews is saturated, a slowdown of new businesses entering the industry is expected to benefit the industry's bottom line.
The Breweries industry primarily produces alcoholic beverages using malted barley and hops. This industry excludes wine, brandy, cider and distilled beverages such as vodka and rum. Bottling purchased malt beverages and malt manufacturing are also excluded from this industry.
