Beer Processing Market Growth and Forecast (2021-2026):

The Global Beer Processing Market size was worth USD 677.5 billion in 2021, and is foreseen to reach USD 815.4 billion by 2026 at a CAGR of 3.1% during the outlook period. Increase in consumption of beer in recent years as disposable income increases and consumer preference for beer over other alcoholic beverages increases.

Beer is generally brewed with four basic ingredients, water, cereal grains, hops, and yeast, and is fermented for a specific period of time. In addition, additive ingredients such as herbs and fruits are used in beer. There are many different types available in the industry, of which the two most frequently consumed are beer and ale. The main difference between ale and beer is the level of temperature at which they ferment. Ale is distilled at high temperatures (60°-80°F), while beer is extracted at low temperatures (45°-60°F). Beer processing is growing significantly as interest in natural beers increases.

Recent Developments in Beer Processing Industry:

  • In May 2019, Heineken acquired a stake in Biela Ecuador from a group of local investors. Heineken helped enter the Ecuadorian beer market.

The integration of local distribution channels can complement the growth of the industry. In addition, cultural changes and the adoption of western culture have influenced consumer opinions about alcoholic beverages, especially beer. However, with the introduction of sweetened and non-alcoholic beverages, the industry will soon offer some growth prospects. Consumption of these beverages has increased in recent years due to an increase in disposable income and an increase in the consumer's propensity for other alcoholic beverages. Also, as the number of breweries and small breweries increases, it contributes significantly to industrial growth. Also, as interest in developing new types of beer grew, bottled hardware expanded the demand for beer processors. The trend towards organic and low alcohol beers, along with the growing number of breweries and breweries, has contributed significantly to the scale of the beer processing industry. With the growing demand for premium and craft beers along with more and more breweries, the size of the industry is skyrocketing. Additionally, with the growing youth population, the number of female drinkers has increased, contributing significantly to the size of the industry. As demand for low-alcohol beverages increased, industry players had to add low-alcohol products to their product portfolio, boosting the industry's outlook. Beer-type beer is considered to dominate the global beer processing market due to the higher recognition rate from buyers than other types of beer. Besides, the dominant part of the organization run by the beer market tends to assemble beer.

However, the malt portion is expected to observe high development during the estimated period. Shoppers are gradually choosing to explore a variety of methods related to the premium and universal beer assortments offered individually. Most brewers now recognize that the top blending industry will remain the most common part. The low alcohol propensity for bulk beverages is steadily increasing, and sales of nonalcoholic and low alcohol beers increase as interest in health-conscious consumers and preference for new, better tasting ranges increases. Cost savings will lead to the low-alcohol alcohol industry, such as artisanal beverages. This scenario stands out in European countries like Sweden, where brewers are trying to make a difference in their industry. In addition to this, Super Premium Beer is witnessing the rapid development of the business and is expected to show the most remarkable development speed over the anticipated period, which is another factor driving the growth of the global beer processing market.


Taxes and high excise duties on premises as well as exchanges have hampered the growth of the industry with increased health awareness among customers. To prevent the brewery equipment market from growing, large capital investments, high maintenance costs and higher energy costs are anticipated.

Impact of COVID 19 on the Beer Processing Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the size of the beer processing market in 2020, with small and medium-sized companies struggling to maintain their business in the short term. Industry leaders are now focused on creating new business practices to address crisis situations like the COVID-19 pandemic. The beer processing industry is the second-largest source of income in the beverage industry, with most of them making money through distribution channels outside of trade. The Convid-19 pandemic has reduced the supply of CO2 used in the production process of beer, soft drinks, soft drinks and other spirits. The coronavirus has affected all beer processing production and the ingredients used in the process.

Beer Processing Market Segmentation Analysis:

By type of beer, the market in 2018 is segmented into ale and stout, lager, low-alcohol beer and specialty beer. Among this, the lager segment had a significant market share in terms of value and volume. The standard lager segment is the most profitable market in 2019, with a total turnover of $ 372.2 billion, 59.1% of the total beer market. The premium lager segment contributed US $ 169.9 billion in sales in 2019. Today, the lager sector continues to dominate the global beer processing market in terms of value, but a growing consumer base is continuing. Witness a trend towards the consumption of craft and specialty beers.

Depending on the type of brewery, the market is divided into Brew Pubs, Microbrewery, and Macro brewery. Depending on the type of beer produced, there are three main types of fermentation, hot, cold and natural fermentation. A typical fermentation equipment is a stainless-steel container with a cylindrical top and a conical bottom. The hole in the cone allows the yeast to flow to the bottom of the tank to ensure proper delivery. When the fermentation process is complete, the solid particles and yeast come out of the pot located at the tip of the cone. The open fermentation vessels are used for the fermentation of wheat beer. The open top fermenter is advantageous for collecting top fermenting yeast. The risk of infection is higher for higher fermentation equipment.
