Overview of Global Alcoholic Beverages Market

The global alcoholic beverages market is anticipated to display moderate growth rate over the 2015-2021 period. The consistent sales of all the product segments (spirits, wine, and beer) have led to the positive growth of the global market over the last few years.

The rising economic prosperity in developing economies has been one of the major factors driving the growth of the global alcoholic beverages market in recent years. The increasing purchasing power and increasing acceptance for consumption of alcohol in the cultural beliefs of consumers in these regions is propelling the growth of this market.

Efforts by alcoholic beverage manufacturers for strengthening distribution channels and extension of purchase channels such as online stores, and convenience stores is also contributing substantially to the growth of the global alcoholic beverages market.

However, a high degree of competition among major players to obtain the maximum market share is one of the major impediments to the growth of this market. This also restricts the entry of new players and their chances of sustenance if any in the highly competitive alcoholic beverages market. Other than this, increasing prices of raw materials, availability of non-alcoholic beverages, and stringent licensing requirements for the manufacture of alcoholic beverages are other factors restraining the growth of this market.

Product-wise, beer, spirits, and wine are the segments of the alcoholic beverages market. Among these, beer accounts for the key revenue contribution followed by spirits and wine. The leading six beer manufacturers collectively hold more than 50% of the global market. These manufacturers are forming alliances with local companies to tap into the newer markets of developing nations.

North America and Europe are mature markets for alcoholic beverages, which is why product manufacturers are looking toward other regions. Manufacturers are focused on penetrating into newer markets predominantly in Asia Pacific. This is because changing consumer habits are leading to an increasing consumption of alcohol in countries such as China and India.
