Global Beer Manufacturing - Industry Market Research Report

Global Beer Manufacturing

Over the five years to 2018, performance in the Global Beer Manufacturing industry has varied. Despite declining per capita beer consumption and relatively flat volume growth across traditional North American and European markets, beer producers have benefited from phenomenal growth in high-value craft beers and foreign-label beers over the past five years. At the same time, rising disposable incomes and consumers' shift from traditional products to higher-quality, attractively branded beer has underpinned rising beer consumption and strong volume growth in emerging markets. Conditions in the industry are forecast to improve moving forward, although organic growth in sales of premium beer has been a constant worry for many of the industry's most prominent companies. The spate of consolidation over the past five years has helped the industry's largest companies reduce per-unit costs and alleviate some supply side challenges, but the industry will ultimately have to address consumers' dwindling demand for light beer brands.

The Global Beer Manufacturing industry primarily manufactures alcoholic beverages that use malted barley and hops such as ale, lager, malt liquor and nonalcoholic beer. This industry excludes wine, brandy, cider and distilled beverages such as vodka and rum. Bottling purchased malt beverages and manufacturing purchased malt are also excluded from 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.
