Published On : May 2017 Pages : 98 Category: Food and Beverages Report Code : FB0641 Format :

Industry Trend Analysis

The global craft beer market is expected to be around $505 billion by 2025. Due to rising preference of consumers for flavored beer, this market is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period. Rising demand for beer with low alcohol by volume (ABV) has also contributed to the growth of this market around the world. Growing number of craft beer admirers around the world will drive the market growth in coming years.

Distribution Outlook and Trend Analysis

On trade distribution market held more than half of the total market for craft beer in 2016. In on-trade distribution, the alcoholic drinks are sold in bars, restaurants, clubs and pubs and similar channels of distribution in the hospitality industry. Comparatively, on-trade craft beer is costlier than off-trade craft beer. Hence, the market for on-trade craft beer is significantly growing in developed countries where the hospitality industry is booming. In off-trade distribution, craft beer is distributed through retailers, wholesalers, and online channels. This market has more growth prospects in emerging economies where affordability is the key to sales performance.

Regional Outlook and Trend Analysis

European dominated the global craft beer market in 2016. Rising acceptance and liking for flavored beer by the people are the key factors driving the market growth. On the basis of consumption, Germany and UK are at the forefront with more than one fourth of the total market revenue.

U.S. occupied major share of the North American craft beer market in 2016. Increased liking for low alcohol by volume (ABV) beverages in the U.S. will ensure the rapid pace of this market growth. North America will witness significant growth in the near future with more and more beer enthusiasts choosing flavored craft beer over mainstream beer.

Competitive Analysis

Market Modeling and Forecasting

We use epidemiology and capital equipment-based models to forecast market size of different segments at country and regional level.

  • Epidemiology-based Forecasting Model: This method uses epidemiology data gathered through various publications and from physicians to estimate population of patients, flow of treatment of individual disease and therapies. The data collected through this method includes statics on incidence of disease, population suffering from disease, and treatment population. This method is used to understand:
  • Number of patients for particular device or medical procedure and
  • Repeated use of particular device depending on health and condition of patient
  • Capital-based Forecasting Model: This method of forecasting is based on number of replacements, installed-based and new sales of capital equipment used in various healthcare and diagnostic centers. These three parameters are calculated and forecast is developed. Installation base is calculated as average number of units per facility; while sales for particular year is calculated from number of new and replace units. Secondary data is collected through various supply chain intermediaries and opinion leaders to arrive at installation and sales rate. These techniques help our analysts in validating market and developed market estimates and forecast.

We do forecast on basis of several parameters such as market drivers, market opportunities, industry trends government regulations, raw materials supply and trade dynamics to ensure relevance of forecast with market scenario. With increasing need to granulized information, we used bottom-up methodology for forecasting where we evaluate each regional segment differently and combined all forecast to develop final market forecast.
