The global beer market was worth around USD 610.34 billion in 2021 and is estimated to grow to about USD 814.54 billion by 2028, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 3.4 percent over the forecast period. The report analyzes the beer market’s drivers, restraints/challenges, and the effect they have on the demands during the projection period. In addition, the report explores emerging opportunities in the beer market.

Beer is among the world's oldest and most famous alcoholic beverages and the third most common beverage after water and tea. It is made by brewing and fermenting carbohydrates taken mostly from cereal grains, most typically malted barley, but also wheat, rice, maize (corn), and oats. Fermentation of the carbohydrate in the liquid creates ethanol and carbonation in the finished beer throughout the brewing process.

The global beer market is growing at a significant rate. Factors such as an increase in the number of breweries, changing lifestyles, and an increase in beer consumption, especially among millennials are boosting the growth of the market. Further, the introduction of flavored beers by the major players is also equally contributing to the growth of the beer market. In addition to this, rise in disposable income, as well as an increase in purchasing power, has also led to an increase in demand for beer thereby contributing to the market growth. Growing trend of beer consumption in events and also for leisure are also some of the key aspects that are fostering the market growth. Moreover, the increase in adoption of westernized patterns in emerging countries and the development of low or zero percent alcohol beers to attract consumers is leading to the rise in demand for beer, which, in turn, is fueling the growth of the market. Furthermore, heavy investments by major players in marketing & promotion of the products and strong distribution channels may have beneficial opportunities for the growth of the global beer market during the forecast period. However, strict regulations by the government due to growing addiction and health hazards related to alcohol consumption may impede the growth of the market.
