North America Cider Market Scenario

Ciders come in a variety of flavors and can be categorized as dry or sweet. They come in a variety of colors, from clouded with silt to crystal clear. The color variations are attributable to variables in fermenting procedures as well as the apples used. Modern ciders have a similar appearance to sparkling wines, however, traditional kinds are still produced and tend to be darker. Cider is a fermented beverage with an alcohol content ranging from 1-2 percent to 8.5 percent alcohol by volume (ABV). It's produced with apple juice from a bitter and tannin-rich kind of apple. Cider has been around for a long time, ruled by the Greeks and Romans, and its flavor and fermenting process have evolved over time. Because both are made from fruit juice, it's also known as apple wine. Because a dry-type cider contains six to seven percent alcohol, it also looks like beer. Fermented cider is known as hard cider in the United States, while unfermented fresh fruit juice is known as sweet cider. Cider, on the other hand, is fermented apple juice in the rest of the world. It can be a problem depending on the amount of alcohol in the drink.

North America Cider Market Drivers and Restraints

The high demand for gluten-free beverages and a growing desire for low-alcohol beverages are driving the expansion of the North American cider market. The rise of the local market is being driven by increasing urbanization and changing lifestyles among the populace. The cider's natural and fruity basis contributes to its market expansion. Another key growing element is the shift in consumer demand for specialty beverages made by microbreweries rather than mass-produced beverages. The bottled cider market in North America is predominantly controlled by mid- and high-end brands. These brands are deliberately positioned in the market, with varying prices and retail or bar availability. Innovation with different flavors, mixes, and product positioning in the retail store is the key driver of this cider business. Cider makers are attempting to pitch it as a healthier alternative to other alcoholic drinks, which might help the area market grow.

Cider is also said to be popular among the young and female population, and it is subjected to aggressive marketing activities that add to the company's success. Furthermore, the introduction of synthetic chemicals in a beverage contributes to the rise in cider consumption. The product's positioning with bottles of various appealing sizes plays a significant part in improving the product's preference. Moreover, increased demand for premium spirits as a result of rising per capita income, coupled with alcohol consumption as a status symbol, are two major growth factors in the North America Cider Market. In alcoholic beverages, consumers are increasingly favoring tradition, quality, and innovation. Because of the improved level of living, one of the important market trends is the adoption of high-end products, particularly among Generation Y (people of early 80's and 90's). Fruit-based drinks are more popular among health-conscious millennials. The decline in beer consumption in industrialized countries including the United States has aided the development of better artisan ciders.

However, cultural differences in the provincial market may limit its adoption, as the concentrated apple juice that serves as an alcohol substitute may be unappealing to some consumers. The prevalence of sugar in cider poses a serious threat to the North America cider market. To begin with, cider has a lower glycemic index than wine since grapes contain more sugar than the majority of apples. Regardless, the fermented product has high sugar content. According to recent research, a 470 mL can of "natural cider" has 20.5 grams of sugar; this is the only amount of sugar that an adult should have in a day. Furthermore, when the cider is mixed with lager or ale, the sugar content might increase by 5x or 10x. Diabetes is one of the most common cardiovascular diseases, and people's dietary tastes have shifted around such indices, making it a hard challenge for the cider industry to overcome.

Due to product introductions, apple wine is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 3.6 percent from 2019 to 2025. Hush Heath Estate, for example, released two new apple sparkling wines in June 2017: a white and a rose wine made from Cox, Bramley, and Egremont Russet apples.
