Beer is considered as the most cherished and leading alcoholic drink, globally. Beer accounts for 74.58% of the global alcoholic drinks market share. India, China, the USA, Brazil, Russia, Germany, and Mexico are among the leading markets in the world. Beer sale is following an upward trend, worldwide, with many brands now exploiting niche segments like malt liquors, alternatives, ice beers, and non-alcoholic beers, on account of increasing health consciousness among drinkers. The global beer market was valued at USD 520 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach USD 736 billion by 2021, with 6.0% CAGR during the forecast period of 2016-2021.
The global beer market is fueled by few drivers such as, changing lifestyle and consumption habits of alcoholic drinks, rapid urbanization, and high disposable income, and popularity among younger generation for beer products. However, there are a few restraints that are slowing down the pace of the industry, such as heavy taxation and legal regulations, health issues of beer consumption, and availability of beer substitutes. Innovative products with flavored and crafted beer and growing demand for imported beer are expected to provide the future growth opportunities for the industry.
The whole beer market can be segmented into four major segments, by the product type, category, packaging, and geography. By the product type, beer can be classified as light and strong beer; wherein, strong beer covers more than 60% of the global beer demand.

Premium beer segment is expected to register a high CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period. The packaging segment is broadly categorized into canned, bottled and drought beer. Given the shifting buying pattern and attitude, demand for can beer is becoming more prevalent, globally.
Asia-Pacific region is the largest and fastest growing market for beer consumption. This region alone accounted for 36.8% share of the global beer market. The regional beer market growth is supported by a large population, more youngsters, growing middle class, and disposable incomes. Europe is the second largest consumer of beer, and its market growth rate is steady, currently. North America is the only region that recorded a drop in overall beer consumption, annually. South America and Africa are other developing regions and recorded a significant pace in the beer consumption.
