Key Market Issues

Cider is attracting a variety of consumers, including those who don't like beer or wine, those who are looking for a more natural beverage than beer, and particularly those who have gluten intolerance that cannot digest beer.

The variety of flavours that cider offers is a driver of its growth, many brewers are offering variety packs and different flavours.

Consumers are becoming more curious and looking for new and exciting products to try. In many places throughout the United States, consumers have access to flavours from around the world, causing a surge in curiosity.

Cider consumers are very similar to craft beer consumers and the recent spike in craft beer demand is positively affecting cider's growth.

Imports account for around 20% of the market and are dominated by brands from the UK and Ireland.

Key Highlights

The cider market is growing strongly, mirroring the rapid gains of the craft beer market.

Fruit flavoured ciders are becoming increasingly popular, as are pear based products.

There are several ciders being offered by the major industry players in the already strong beer market in the USA. The strong positions and reputations of these major players such as A-BInBev and Boston Beer have greatly benefited the performance of their cider brands.

Cider growth rates will remain in the double- digits moving forward.

The top three brands represented 60% of the market in 2012. This is expected to decline in 2013 because of the arrival of new brands
