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.

Hence, beer produced in macro breweries and craft breweries still has a high-growth rate. Moreover, the increasing spending capacity of consumers has led to a surge in demand for craft beers. There has been an emergence of various craft breweries in countries such as India over the last few years.
