The market is driven by the premiumization of beer products, and the growing popularity of craft beers. Craft beer has gained popularity among large sections of the consumers. The factors affecting the shift towards craft beer consumption are, demand for variety, higher disposable income, taste for flavor, and beer quality, among others. According to the Brewers Association, A craft brewer registers an annual production of six million barrels of beer. Craft breweries are coming up with new products to increase their presence in the market. The number of breweries is also increasing globally. The number of craft breweries in the US increased by 13.2% in 2018 to reach 7,346 compared to 6,490 in 2017.

The macro brewery holds a dominant position in the global beer market by production in 2018, with a revenue share of 62.91%. Macro brews are international beer brands produced in larger quantities. Macro brewers must maintain consistency in the taste of beers, as they are marketed across the globe. Several companies offer a wide range of branded beers in the market. Budweiser and Budweiser Black Crown come from the house of Anheuser Busch. Heineken offers Icon brand, and provides DraughtKeg beer, which remains fresh even up to 30 days after it is opened. Anheuser-Busch InBev launched Tequila-flavored beer, Oculto, in the U.S. Oculto was targeted at younger consumers who prefer Mexican beer and liquor. Oculto does not contain tequila, but has 6% alcohol content. However, the craft brewery segment is anticipated to witness the highest growth rate over the forecast period. The craft brewery segment generally consists of relatively small and independently-owned commercial breweries, which deploys the traditional brewing process, and emphasize more on quality and flavor.

However, beer vendors face tough competition from other alcoholic beverages such as wine and spirits. Regulations on alcohol advertising, as well as the campaigns against alcohol beverages, pose a challenge for the market. Also, the rising price of raw materials affect the profit margins of vendors. The main raw materials used for the production of beer drinks are hops and barley. Climatic changes are the main reason for the increase in the price of raw materials. For example, the Bavarian region of Hallertau in Germany is the largest hop-growing area globally. The region has experienced about five hail storms in the past few years. This has affected the supply of hops, which has led to increases in the price of beer.

The Asia-Pacific region is a highly attractive growth region for the beer market due to the high growth in population, where the young population is high. Furthermore, the rising income levels and urbanization has been the key driver for the beer market in the region. The price of beer is also evolving, hence making it more affordable for the consumers. The demand for premium beer is increasing in this region, owing to the changing preferences of consumers paired with the growing interest in better quality beer brands. The rapid penetration of the retail industry has enabled brewers in tapping the provincial consumer base, which was earlier beyond their reach, thereby pushing the beer sales in this region. The companies are also investing in the region to increase their presence and market share in the growing beer market in the region.
