The Cider Production industry has enjoyed a period of moderate growth in recent years, with the industry gaining a share of the alcoholic drinks market as beer sales declined and consumers began to view cider in a new light. Initially supported by apple cider sales, the industry has expanded into a variety of different offerings, with fruit-flavoured ciders, particularly berry, driving the majority industry growth. Favourable weather and events like the 2014 FIFA World Cup helped the industry sustain this growth in recent years. However, the industry still faces challenges in the form of the increasing popularity of beer and competition between producers, which constrains profit.
Firms in this industry produce cider from cider apples and other ingredients. The industry also covers the production of pear cider and other fruit-flavoured ciders.
