The Global Beer Manufacturing industry has demonstrated impressive growth over the past five years, with emerging markets experiencing growth in overall sales volume and developed markets showing greater purchases of high-margin craft beer products. In addition, merger and acquisition activity has greatly facilitated the expansion of major brands, boosting industry revenue. Conditions in the industry are forecast to strengthen in the five years to 2020, as consolidation continues and the industry's four major brewers acquire midtier brewers in emerging markets. Moreover, beer is likely to maintain its presence as the drink of choice throughout many emerging markets, and developed nations will continue to demand specialty and premium beers.
