COVID-19 Causes Rampant Alcohol Drink Consumption; Governments May Intervene to Abate Another Health Crisis

An alcoholic drink is any drink that contains ethanol, that is one produced by fermenting sugar, grains, fruits, or other foodstuffs. The consumption of alcohol plays a critical social role in several cultures around the world and thus, countries have strict laws regulating its production, sale, and consumption. While some nations ban it outright due to various reasons, alcoholic drinks are legal in most nations.

Customers Want Low-Calorie But High-Quality Alcoholic Drinks

A key driver for growth in the alcoholic drinks market is the premiumization of alcohol. Manufacturers have undertaken efforts to strengthen their distribution and extend their purchase channels. The rise in eCommerce and proliferation of convenience stores in particular, has boosted the prospects of the global alcoholic drinks market. Millennials with their rising affluence and discerning taste buds, are spearheading the demand for premium alcoholic drinks. This compels brewers to focus on innovation, thereby continually unveiling newer alcoholic drinks into the market. There is a noted shift towards low-calorie and high-quality alcoholic drinks and companies would do well to take this into consideration.

Raise A Toast To Spirit Consumption In The Alcoholic Drinks Market

In 2020, the distilled alcoholic drink segment accounted for the bulk of the alcoholic drinks market, primarily due to an exponential growth in the consumption of super premium vodka, and the move from beer towards whiskey, rum, and other spirits. The distilled alcoholic drink segment is on track to maintain a high degree of stability coupled with a robust return on investment in the alcoholic drinks market.

European Beers And Wines Have Global Appeal And Brand Recall

In terms of regions, Europe holds considerable sway in the global alcoholic drinks market. Beer consumption is an intrinsic part of the culture in almost every European country with each having its own local, regional, or nationally favored variant. Beer alone comprises nearly a tenth of the entire alcoholic drink consumption, highlighting its criticality in the alcoholic drink market. Brewers could additionally look at targeting prosperous North American customers. Craft beer has had a significant impact on customers there, especially millennials keen, willing, and able to try something new. When it comes to wines, Europeans consume the most, especially the sparkling, rose, and red blend types.

Supermarkets Keep The Cash Registers Ringing For Brewers

The number of supermarkets has grown by leaps and bounds across both developed and emerging economies in recent times. The easy accessibility of alcoholic drinks and their relatively low cost in supermarkets helps catapult demand in the alcoholic drinks market. In addition, an attractive assortment and high visibility of alcoholic drinks, and rising disposable per capita income coupled with changing tastes should help in no small part.

Spike In Binge Drinking During COVID-19 – Is This Truly Good For Companies?

A new report published by the Global Drug Survey, the world’s largest assessing use of psychoactive substances, has compared the intake of alcohol before and during the COVID-19 pandemic. It stated that approximately half of UK nationals have increased the days they drink alcohol. While 35% said they increased it a little, 20% had increased it a lot. Worryingly, the UK also had the most respondents who drank earlier in the day and they had even increased their proportion of binge drinking. Similar statistics have been released in Australia and Ireland. Although this is beneficial for key stakeholders involved in the alcoholic drinks market, this poses numerous ethical and healthcare challenges that governments during this crisis can ill-afford.
