Beer is a widely consumed alcoholic

beverage throughout the world and global production figures have shown an increasing trend during the last decade. In 2016, the United States was the second largest country in worldwide beer production with an amount of about 221 million hectoliters, following only China.

The Beer Industry is an important global business, taking in annual revenues of $294.5 billion. A lot of countries consume large amounts of alcohol each year and, among these, beer is the most widely consumed alcoholic beverage in the world. It is also the third most popular drink, just after water and tea. The global industry includes brewing, filling, transporting, distribution, advertisement, and consumer consumption of beer. Brewing is the most important part of the industry, as this step is when the product is actually produced.

The consumption of beer has augmented in the recent years due to rise in disposable income and increase in consumer preferences for beer over other alcoholic beverages. In addition, surge in female drinkers and unprecedented rise in youth population fuel the growth of the beer market. According to United Nations (2013) World Population Prospect, the global youth population is anticipated to reach 1.3 billion by 2030. Moreover, consolidation of on-premises distribution channels further supplements the market growth. In addition to this, cultural changes and adoption of western culture have influenced perception of consumers towards alcoholic beverages, especially beer. However, taxations and higher excise duties on imported as well as local beer as well as growth in health awareness among consumers hamper the growth of the beer market. Nevertheless, the beer industry offers numerous growth opportunities in the near future.
