The Global Fruit Beer Market size is expected to reach $570 Million by 2026, rising at a market growth of 3.7% CAGR during the forecast period. Fruit beer is a type of beer in which fruits serve as a flavoring agent or an adjunct. Fruits such as plums, cherries, and raspberries have a malt or hop aroma which is used as a basis for making fruit beers. A recent situation reveals that often brewers apply concentrate, sugar, or processed flavors to the final product rather than the fermentation method.

The low alcohol by volume ratio (ABV) of low-alcohol fruit beer is boosting its popularity, particularly among health-conscious consumers. Low alcohol fruit beer drinking does not affect the kidneys and liver and does not contribute to intoxication. These health benefits of low alcohol content fruit beer would further boost market demand. The industry vendors are widening their product range by introducing new low-alcohol fruit beer brands to focus on this rising demand. This would be a vital development that will have a beneficial influence on the fruit beer industry growth.

The global expansion of online trade allows sellers of fruit beer to offer their products by online retailing. Online retailers offer extra promotions, quick distribution, and payment choices and increased label exposure unlike conventional retail stores. In addition, online retailers now give customers the ease of choosing fruit beers from several brew series in one platform. Selling fruit beer through online platforms also helps vendors avoid the need for massive investment through physical stores required to sell it. This enhances vendors’ willingness to sell their products over online platforms.

Based on Flavor, the market is segmented into Raspberry, Cherry, Apricot, Peach and Other flavors. Based on Distribution Channel, the market is segmented into Offline and Online. Based on Regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa.
