Opportunity: Introduction of new flavors in beer

The increase in beverage consumption has led to intense competition amongst beer brands, resulting in the introduction of new flavors and increasing beer consumption. There is a growing popularity for craft beers as it offers various flavors besides the regular flavors offered by macro breweries. The introduction of new ingredients and innovative flavors, combining salty, fruity, and tart flavors, by craft beers, has found an increasing appeal among the millennial crowd globally. Some of the macro brewers are also acting on to respond to these changing demands from consumers. For example, Heineken USA, in 2021, launched Dos Equis Lime & Salt variety pack of lager beer. Similarly, Latambarcem Brewery (India), in 2020, launched a new craft beer brand called Maka di that currently serves four brews: Honey Ale, Belgian Tripel, Bavarian Keller, and Belgian Blanche. The introduction of these new flavors is projected to increase the sales and consumption of beer. Thus, this is anticipated to provide ample opportunities to players operating in the global market.

By source, the malt extract segment is estimated to hold the largest share in the brewing ingredients market

The market includes five major sources: malt extract, adjuncts/grains, hops, beer yeast, and beer additives. The malt extract segment is further bifurcated into standard malt and specialty malts. Brewing-grade malt extracts are made with the highest-quality brewing malts and get additional colors and flavors from using specialty malts. This gives beer the unique character and flavor desired for the particular style brew. These malts often have a longer time in the kiln, at higher temperatures, or get roasted to add depth, complexity, and flavor to the resulting beer. Specialty malts include less in the way of sugars but have a greater influence on the color of the beer. These malts are widely used in craft beers.

By brewery size, the craft brewery is estimated to grow at a higher growth rate in the brewing ingredients market.

According to the Brewers Association, an American craft brewer is a small and independent brewer, where small breweries have an annual production of 6 million barrels of beer or less. The craft brewing industry contributed USD 82.9 billion to the US economy in 2019, with more than 580,000 employees. The average alcohol by volume (ABV) content of a craft beer is 5% to 10%, but some of the most popular craft beers have an ABV of as high as 40%. On the other hand, beer produced in bulk by macro breweries has an ABV of 4% to 6% and as little as 2%. Craft breweries offer different flavors, which allow consumers with different tastes to cater to their preferences. These factors are driving the growth of the craft brewery segment in the global market.

Asia Pacific is projected to dominate the majority market share, in the global brewing ingredients market, in terms of value, in 2021

Due to the increase in population and rise in disposable income, Asia Pacific is projected to account for the largest share during the review period.

Rapid industrialization and urbanization, increase in environmental concerns, rise in disposable income of growing middle class, and rising demand for craft beers are factors consequently fueling the demand for brewing ingredients market in this sector.
