06 Jul 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – To date, China is the world’s major beer market by volume, and it is also projected to turn into the leading beer market globally by value of total sales in 2017. As of 2014, the country’s beer market value stood at over USD 73 billion as against around USD 44 billion in 2010. Premium beers are anticipated to grab more than a third of the Chinese beer marketplace by the end of the decade. The rapidly increasing disposable income levels in tandem with the increasing drinking age population in China and rising leaning towards premium beers are amid the major drivers of the market growth.

By 2017, the domestic beer market is set to grow by 45%, outperforming the USA which is now the world's largest beer market by value. Currently, there are 5 leading beer groups which together make up 80% of the Chinese beer market, including Carlsberg China, Anheuser-Bush InBev, China Resources Snow Breweries, Beijing Yangjin Beer, and Tsingtao Brewery. In the years to come, winning strategies in the national beer market are poised to witness players reinforcing their brand positioning, new product introductions, and cost and distribution control.
