Key insights and drivers behind the Beer and Cider market performance


  • Amid increasing health consciousness, more South Korean consumers opted for zero- or low-alcohol beer and cider in 2022. This trend undercut sales of products with a high alcohol content. As a result, the strong alcoholic-strength band (ABV>5.5) posted an annual decline of 44.2%. Meanwhile, regular-strength beer and cider posted slower growth than low-/no-alcohol variants.
  • The lifting of public mobility restrictions stimulated economic recovery in 2022. As people left their homes more often, on-premise volumes of beer & cider increased by 38.2% annually. The revival of social gatherings and events also contributed to an increase in consumption.
