Over the five years through 2014, revenue for the Beer Production industry in China has been increasing at an average annualized rate of 7.5% to total $32.4 billion. The industry faced many challenges in 2009 and 2010 due to the global financial crisis. Hardest hit were exports, which declined in both years. However, exports are not a significant feature of this industry and count for less than 1.0% of industry revenue. A recovery in foreign demand in 2011, together with steady domestic demand growth, led to a 14.7% jump in industry revenue that year. In 2012, revenue and output for the Beer Production industry in China decreased slightly due to bad weather and economic slowdown.
Businesses in the Beer Production industry manufacture fresh, carbonated beer products with a relatively low degree of alcohol (2.5% to 7.5%). The beer is packaged in kegs for sale to pubs, bars, restaurants and hotels. Beer can also be packaged in cans and bottles for sale to wholesale and retail alcoholic beverage distributors, and the hospitality sector.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
