COVID-19 Impact on the global brewing ingredients Market

The outbreak of COVID-19 has brought serious medical, social, and economic challenges. It is seen that the majority of the companies operating in the manufacturing sector (53%) expect COVID-19 to impact their operations. The grim expectations have become a reality in the sector due to the rise in oil prices and increasing demand & supply bottlenecks which results in a slowdown of expenditures and rising uncertainty in credit markets. Players across the globe in the food & beverage industry have faced a drastic decrease in the consumption of their products. Due to lockdowns in several parts of the world and restrictions on transportation of commodities, companies are also facing disrupted supply chains. The reduced agricultural production interrupting the raw material supply, lack of workers in manufacturing plants, and disturbances in the distribution system have disrupted supply chains.

Opportunity: Introduction of new flavors in beer

The increase in beverage consumption has led to intense competition amongst beer brands, resulting in the introduction of new flavors and increasing beer consumption. There is a growing popularity for craft beers as it offers various flavors besides the regular flavors offered by macro breweries. The introduction of new ingredients and innovative flavors, combining salty, fruity, and tart flavors, by craft beers, has found an increasing appeal among the millennial crowd globally. Some of the macro brewers are also acting on to respond to these changing demands from consumers. For example, Heineken USA, in 2021, launched Dos Equis Lime & Salt variety pack of lager beer. Similarly, Latambarcem Brewery (India), in 2020, launched a new craft beer brand called Maka di that currently serves four brews: Honey Ale, Belgian Tripel, Bavarian Keller, and Belgian Blanche. The introduction of these new flavors is projected to increase the sales and consumption of beer. Thus, this is anticipated to provide ample opportunities to players operating in the global market.

By form, the dry form will drive the demand for brewing ingredients, in terms of value, in 2021

Based on form, the market is categorized as dry and liquid. Dry brewing ingredients such as dry malt extract (DME) are produced the same way as liquid malt extract, except it goes through an additional dehydration step, which reduces the water content down to about 2%. Because of the lower water content, DME tends to have a better shelf life without the darkening issues of light malt extract. It offers more fermentable extract by weight. Thus, less of it is required to achieve the target gravity. Moreover, as a powder, DME is easier to measure in precise increments. With a digital scale, it can be measured out in fractions of an ounce. This makes DME a great choice for priming, supplementing beer recipes, and for making gravity adjustments.
