Global Alcoholic Drinks Marketplace Examined in P&S Market Research Report Published at

22 Feb 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Rising disposable incomes and growing urbanization are some of major forces driving growth of the world’s market for alcoholic drinks.

Consumption of both premium and super-premium alcoholic drinks increases across the globe, and cognac and whiskey are the most rapidly growing categories. The craft beer category also enjoys growing demand. Flavored alcoholic drinks are also on the rise.

However, there are some restraints, such as restrictions on alcoholic drinks’ advertisement and promotion and increasing taxation.

Beer, cider and flavored alcoholic drinks dominated the global marketplace in 2014. Region-wise, Europe held the largest market share in the same year.

Hypermarkets and supermarkets represent major distribution channels.

Brazil, India, Russia and China have demonstrated particularly swift growth of the demand for premium spirits. Most of spirits consumed in these countries are delivered from other countries. In China, the market for imported spirits grew by more than 248 percent in 2012 over 2001.

The global marketplace is highly consolidated, and two market majors have a combined market share of more than 60 percent. Anheuser Busch-inBev, Grupo Modelo, Kirin Holdings Company Limited and Carlsberg A/S are amongst top companies.
