Since there is no cure for celiac disease, consumers who suffer from it are only given the choice of eating a gluten-free diet. Furthermore, it has been determined that Europe has the highest frequency of celiac disease. However, research shows that celiac disease is a hereditary condition typically affecting one in every 100 people worldwide. Therefore, the market for gluten-free goods and gluten-free beers has grown exponentially over the past decade and will continue to experience significant growth during the forecast period due to an increasing prevalence rate of celiac disease and increasing awareness and health consciousness of consumers. Thus, driving the gluten-free beer market revenue.


Customers like online shopping because it saves them time by avoiding lengthy trips and billing lines, and they can pay for their purchases using credit or debit cards. Additionally, client-friendly website designs that offer improved product exposure have been implemented into online shopping portals, along with improved security features for effective customer support and payments. This pattern motivates several manufacturers to focus on the Internet-savy customer segment and experiment with the new online retail model. Compared to a normal brick-and-mortar store format, the online retail format has fewer operational expenses and overheads, which will aid suppliers in saving money. Therefore, during the anticipated time, these variables will fuel the growth of the gluten-free beer market.


Since a few years ago, there has been a rise in the demand for gluten-free craft beer, which can be attributed to several factors, including increased consumer interest in free-from products, increased awareness of celiac disease, an increase in the number of breweries, and improved marketing strategies. Various beer flavors and varieties are available while craft brewers are multiplying. Rice beers are becoming more popular among those with celiac disease and gluten intolerance, and they offer brewers the chance to experiment with creative recipes and flavor profiles. These gluten-free beers use millet, sorghum, and rice as a grain base rather than barley or wheat.
