The global beer market reached a value of US$ 623.2 Billion in 2020.

The alcohol content in beer generally ranges from less than 3% to 40% by volume (ABV), depending on the style and recipe of the formulation. If consumed in moderation, beer is known to prevent diseases related to the heart and circulatory system, including atherosclerosis, angina, stroke and heart attack.

With a rise in the number of social drinkers, particularly in Asian and African countries, on account of improving economic scenario and growing middle-class population, the demand for beer has increased. Alcohol-free and low alcohol beer have also gained popularity, especially among young consumers trying to make positive lifestyle choices and manage their alcohol intake. Beer manufacturing companies are also introducing several new products and brands to expand their consumer base.

Moreover, the rising influence of social media, increasing internet penetration and growth of the e-commerce sector have enabled manufacturers to create improved retailing channels and market presence. However, the on-premise sales of beer are anticipated to decline in the short term due to the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and subsequent lockdowns, as individuals practice social distancing measures and avoid gatherings and outings.
