Global Beer Industry
The past decade has seen an overall steady growth in the volume of beer consumed globally. Even during the
peak of the financial slowdown, aggregate volumes saw marginal increases. In 2014, the global beer market
grew by 1% and it is expected to grow by 2% in 2015. The low growth percentage is attributable to a
slowdown in beer consumption by world’s five largest beer markets, China, US, Russia, Germany and Brazil.
