INDUSTRY OUTLOOKd most popular alcoholic beverage after whiskey in India. Alcohol consumption has become a part of social interactions among young people in India. The Indian alcohol market is the 3rdlargest and one of the fastest-growing alcohol markets in the world. It is expected to reach $41 billion by 2022. In terms of volume, the beer market was valued at 55,337.3 lakh liters in 2020 and is expected to reach 90,047.4 lakh liters by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 10.89% during the 2021 - 2025 period.
On the basis of product type, the beer market can be segmented into strong, mild, and craft beer. The strong beer contributed the largest revenue share in 2020. The growth of craft beer in India highly depends on the healthy growth of the beer industry. The All India Brewers Association estimates the sales of craft beers to grow at 20%annually, which is higher than 5-7% growth in the beer market. Growth in the market of Craft beer will mainly be driven by millennials who prefer craft beer over regular lagers (Beer with more than 5% alcohol content).
Alcoholic beverages are not still included in the Goods and Services Tax (GST). This is affecting the industry negatively as the materials imported attract excise duty and VAT. Additionally, the trend of various State Governments shows that they do not allow free flow of Beer and Whisky manufactured outside the States by putting restrictions and imposing exorbitant import fees as a result the liquor industry established outside the State cannot compete with the importing State.
During the initial stage of the COVID-19 pandemic, the alcohol industry experienced a huge downfall. The sale of alcoholic beverages was stopped for about 40 days. Moreover, the introduction of COVID cessions liquor in some states increased the prices of alcohol.
The beer market in India is currently in its growth stage. Today, there are more than 140 beer brands in India. However, the per capita beer consumption in India is still very low compared to other countries in the Asia Pacific region and therefore the market could witness huge growth in the coming years.
