The Online Alcohol Retailing industry encompasses a number of specialist online alcohol retailers and wine clubs that do not have physical store fronts. Supermarkets and off-licence chains like Majestic Wines are excluded from the industry because they have brick-and-mortar outlets. The majority of the industry's revenue is derived from selling wine. Online wine specialists now make up five of the top 10 most used sites for buying wine.
Despite a general decline in per capita alcohol consumption in the United Kingdom, the industry has grown sharply over the past five years. This has been a result of a substantial consumer shift toward online retail.
This industry covers companies that sell packaged beer, wine and spirits exclusively over the internet. It thus excludes firms that also have a bricks-and-mortar presence.
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.
