About This Report


The Beer and Malt Manufacturing industry has undergone a shake up during the past five years. Per capita beer consumption has declined sharply as drinkers have given up traditional brands like VB in favour of premium beers and other beverages, including cider and wine. Robust demand for craft beer has resulted in the number of brewers in the industry increasing over the past decade to 146 in 2012-13.

At the other end of the market, Australia's two largest brewers, Foster's and Lion, have been acquired by foreign interests. The battle for market share between the two has constrained growth in industry revenue and profitability.

The Beer and Malt Manufacturing industry consists of firms that manufacture, bottle and can beer, ale, stout or porter, and manufacture malt. Firms in the industry buy ingredients to process into malt and beer. Malt manufacturers sell malt as a key ingredient to breweries, and dairy product manufacturers and a range of food processors. Beer, ale and stout are packaged for sale to pubs, bars, hotels and wholesale and retail alcoholic beverage distributors.

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.
