Over the past five years, the Online Beer, Wine and Liquor Sales industry's revenue has skyrocketed, partly thanks to the expansion in households with internet connections. Moreover, the emergence of more time-strapped amateur wine connoisseurs and individuals interested in mixology, as well as craft beer, has also increased the popularity of online alcohol purchases. Nevertheless, state-by-state variations in regulations for interstate alcohol distribution have posed a challenge to the industry. Over the five years to 2023, industry revenue is forecast to grow, albeit at a slightly less heightened rate.
