Gluten-Free Beers Market Analysis

Global Gluten-free Beer Market is expected to register a CAGR of 13.72% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

The commercialization of the beer industry has been one of the sectors most exposed to the impact of COVID-19, largely characterized by an unprecedented disruption in the functioning of both the market forces of demand and supply, posing hurdles for all stakeholders, including consumers. The measures taken by the government increased the exacerbated losses in the beer industry, as a risk of disruptions on the supply side, with the shortage of the large labor force needed, and inappropriate supply of ingredients owing to the logistical restrictions on trucking and shipping, imposed by the government or non-state actors, that is eventually contributing to inconsistent availability and accessibility of beer products in the market. However, on the other end, COVID-19 provided a massive opportunity for the on-premise channel. Online providers have seen a significant increase in sales as consumers follow social-distancing guidelines and avoid visiting premises in person.

Over the medium term, with the rise in obesity, diabetes, Coeliac disease, and other diagnosed food intolerances, including gluten sensitivity/gluten intolerance across the globe and the ability to lower cholesterol levels, ease digestive issues, and reduce the fat content, gluten-free beer is seeing increased demand among health-conscious consumers

Apart from additional health benefits, the gluten-free beer also strictly adheres to clean label claims, which is yet another factor supporting its overall growth in the country. With health-conscious customers giving higher preference to clean labelled products, specialty products, such as gluten-free beers, are witnessing increased demand. The market studied is projected to witness robust growth emerging from labeling-induced purchases.The beer drinkers across the globe are actively seeking quality over quantity, evidenced by continued growth in premium, super-premium, and craft categories.

Inclination Towards Gluten-free Craft Beer

Among the new varieties are gluten-free beers that use millets, sorghum, and rice as a grain base rather than barley or wheat, rice beers are gaining popularity with those who suffer from celiac disease and gluten intolerance, and they have an opportunity for brewers to experiment with innovative recipes and flavor profiles. Further, not only are gluten-free millets and sorghum are known as 'Smart Food', but they are also highly nutritious and can be a better choice for both consumers as well as farmers, since they are drought-resistant, and demand significantly lesser water than other brewing grains like wheat, and require little-to-no fertilizers or pesticides, with increasing consumer demand for gluten-free and more innovations in terms of ingredients, the corn-based gluten-free beer holds potential market share.

Asia-Pacific Region Expected to be the Fastest Growing
