·4 min read

The "The Global Beer Market and the Impact of COVID-19 in the Medium Term" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global beer market was equal to 498.66 billion USD (calculated in retail prices) in 2015. Until 2025, the beer market in the world is forecast to reach 710.89 billion USD (in retail prices), thus increasing at a CAGR of 3.72% per annum for the period 2020-2025. This is an increase, compared to the growth of about 3.42% per year, registered in 2015-2019.

The average consumption per capita in value terms reached 112.45 USD per capita (in retail prices) in 2015. In the next five years, it grew at a CAGR of 2.96% per annum. In the medium term (by 2025), the indicator is forecast to slow down its growth and increase at a CAGR of 2.78% per annum.

One of the most important trends on the beer market is the shift in consumer preference towards low and non-alcohol beers, as well as craft beers. While the alcohol consumption has decreased, the beer consumption worldwide has increased. Furthermore, due to the premiumization, which has significantly impacted the market in recent years, the beer producers across the world have been more focused on quality instead of quantity. The market has witnessed an increased proliferation of smaller and independent breweries, which are selling locally and directly to consumers. They are trying to create a unified experience for their customers by inviting them into the breweries to taste and learn more about the whole process.

Merger and acquisition activity has been robust in the beer market during the past few years. The emergence of numerous small and independent craft breweries has boosted the consolidation trend to some point, and, subsequently, the number of merger and acquisition deals. In particular, InBev has been responsible for the largest part of the M&A deals which occurred in the last decade. The company is known for its pursuit of cost-cutting and synergy effects. In fact, one of the biggest corporate mergers in the history was the deal between the world's top brewers - Anheuser-Busch InBev and SABMiller in 2016. The takeover, worth more than 100 billion USD, provides entry for AB InBev into developing countries and continents such as China, South America and Africa, where the beer market is gaining a momentum.
