Craft Beer Market

Around 25% of Craft Beer Revenue to be contributed by Pale Ale Consumption, Reports Fact.MR

Published : 31 Jan 2022 Industry: Food & Beverage

Craft beer sales are expected to reach US$ 87 Bn as of 2022, according to a recent report by Fact.MR. The industry is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% over the forecast period of 2022-2032, reaching US$ 174.68 Bn by 2032.

In the course of the previous five years, the market expanded steadily at a CAGR of nearly 5%, valued at over US$ 81 Bn by the end of the period. Despite declining prospects in 2020 due to COVID-19, growing reliance on instant beverages during lockdown drove major e-commerce companies to partner with leading beverage manufacturers, enhancing the availability of craft beer across a wide range of adult demographics.

Many factors are involved in creating the perfect beer or ale. It can be difficult to define what craft beer is, but small, independent breweries are usually the ones producing unique products. A variety of flavors is used for attracting customers, including honey, fruits, tart, sweet and sour, funky flavors and spicy.
