Market Highlights

The global lager market is projected to be valued at ~USD 400 billion by 2030, recording a CAGR of around 3% during the forecast period. Lager is a type of beer that typically has a light body and a clean finish. It also has a malty sweetness and a low hop character. While this beer is used in many recipes and is a favorite of many beer enthusiasts, it is most popular as a German-style beer. The differences between ales and lagers are the fermentation processes and lagers typically have a longer period of fermentation. In addition, lagers are preserved for longer periods of time when compared to ales.

Increasing awareness regarding the health benefits of beer such as antioxidants, proteins, and low cholesterol is expected to boost the market growth. There are a number of vitamins, minerals, and vitamins in beer that offer health benefits including aiding heart health. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 17.9 million die every year due to cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) globally which is why there has been an increasing trend for healthy drinkers when it comes to beer consumption over the last few years. Moreover, increasing choices of superior varieties seem to be significant prospects for the industry. This creates a strong demand in an established market, which mainly revolves around bars, restaurants, and hotels. Furthermore, beer is preferred over other forms of alcoholic drinks due to its rising brand popularity in earlier times. This can potentially be attributed to superior brewing technology and the usage of high-quality material for production.

The lockdown in various countries across the globe has also affected the production capacity of beer manufacturing companies. Beer manufacturers who specialize in brewing are also facing production problems as they have to either shut down production or run their brews under-staffed or hire workers. The procurement of ingredients has also become a major concern for manufacturers. This is further hampering the demand and supply of lagers. With multiple countries across the world locking down their borders, there have been minimum export-import movements and as a result, it has left lagers with reduced supply chain disruptions.
