During the five years to 2015, the Breweries industry has benefited from consumers opting for a growing variety of craft-style beers made from local microbreweries. Unlike traditional breweries that have bottling operations in facilities throughout the United States and, in some cases, throughout the world, small-scale breweries have become a big hit with consumers due to their local flair, variety of style offerings and quality ingredients. In the coming years, it is unlikely that microbrewery growth akin to that of the five-year period to 2015 will continue. As the market for specialty beers becomes saturated with microbreweries throughout the country, industry revenue is projected to gradually plateau.
The Breweries industry primarily produces alcoholic beverages using malted barley and hops. This industry excludes wine, brandy, cider and distilled beverages such as vodka and rum. Bottling purchased malt beverages and manufacturing purchased malt are also excluded from this industry.
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.
