Beer is one of the most widely consumed and oldest alcoholic beverages in the world. Recent archaeological excavations in China have revealed a 5,000-year old brewery, pointing out the historical consumption of beer in Asia Pacific. The growing demand for innovative flavored beer and crafted beer has boosted the growth of the beer market in Asia Pacific.

The report points out that a rise in disposable incomes, the impact of Western culture, and increase in beer consuming working class consumers have propelled the growth of the Asia Pacific beer market. An increase in the number of convenience stores, liquor shops, retail stores, malls, restaurants, and bars has also supported the growth of the market. However, government regulations regarding alcohol consumption threaten to impede the regional market’s growth during the forecast period. Furthermore, consumers are also becoming aware of the negative effects of regular alcohol consumption. The APAC market has a huge opportunity to grow with the increasing preference for unique beers.

Depending on type, the report segments the Asia Pacific beer market into mainstream, premium, and economy. The mainstream beer segment held 33% of the market in 2013 and emerged as the leading segment. The growing demand for mainstream beer has significantly helped established brands by improving production at their local manufacturing units.
