Cider Market: Industry Analysis and Forecast (2024-2030) Trends

Cider is an alcoholic beverage made primarily from fermented apple juice and occasionally other fruits. The global cider market encompasses various alcoholic beverage manufacturers and players engaged in the production, distribution, and marketing of ciders worldwide. It includes traditional apple ciders, fruit-infused ciders, and artisanal or craft variations, reflecting a broad range of consumer preferences and tastes. The global cider market has witnessed steady growth owing to factors such as increasing consumer interest in low-calorie and gluten-free alternatives, innovations in flavors and variants, and its rising popularity as an alternative to alcoholic drinks. While the UK and Ireland have historically dominated the market, other regions like Africa and Asia Pacific are experiencing growth opportunities. However, challenges persist, particularly in countering competition from Ready-to-Drink (RTD) beverages and diversifying reliance on core markets.
