Report Overview

The global brewery equipment market was valued at USD 16.52 billion in 2022 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.9% during the forecast period. The demand for brewery equipment is expected to increase during the forecast period as beer drinkers throughout the world show an increasing preference for craft breweries due to their distinctive flavor.

 U.S. Brewery Equipment Market Size, by type, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

Beer consumption declined during the Covid-19 pandemic as a result of the closure of the breweries and alcohol retailers owing to the lockdown, which had an effect on the market for brewing equipment. However, when breweries began to operate in 2022 and beer demand climbed, as a result of this, it is anticipated to boost demand for brewery equipment in the market, globally.

The U.S. government declared a lockdown during COVID-19 to stop the virus transmission, which had a detrimental effect on the market for brewing equipment because breweries were closed. However, macro breweries and craft brewers started operating in 2022, which is anticipated to increase the market demand.

As the global economy improves, the food and beverage business has immense development potential. Rising consumer demand drives the growth and expansion of many end-user verticals such as healthcare, food & drinks, chemicals, and others. This, in turn, is anticipated to propel the market demand throughout the forecast period.

The growing popularity of beer culture is encouraging big beer manufacturers from around the world to invest in this market. Furthermore, market participants are investing in activities such as cellar equipment, outdoor expansion, improved yeast management, energy recovery methods, and brewery expansion to strengthen their market presence in the global brewing equipment market. For instance, in September 2019, Kaspar Schulz GmbH announced a collaboration with G.E additive to expand the intersection of brewing equipment manufacture and to provide sophisticated additive technologies to the brewing and beverage industries.

The growing modification of beer regulations in numerous European and North American economies, including Germany, the U.S., U.K., is predicted to stimulate product market growth. Furthermore, factors such as high maintenance costs, energy, power consumption costs, and capacity capital are expected to stymie the expansion of the brewery equipment market.

Type Insights

Microbrewery equipment dominated the market in 2022 and accounted for 82.3% of the total revenue. This segment is projected to maintain its dominance in the near future as demand for a standard type of beer rises due to the simple availability of beer from many brands at varying price points. The use of this machinery is advantageous for producing beer on a large scale.

The fermentation equipment sector is anticipated to maintain its dominant position in the macro brewery equipment market during the anticipated time frame. Over the projection period, the market expansion is anticipated to be fueled by the availability of high-quality fermentation equipment as well as the regular need to replace this equipment due to its ongoing use.

The craft brewery equipment is expected to increase at a CAGR of 6.8% throughout the forecast period. Craft beer is becoming increasingly popular around the world owing to its distinct flavor and natural ingredients. It provides a number of health benefits, including a reduced risk of arthritis, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. Craft beer consumption is expanding, which benefits the craft brewery equipment industry.

Compressors are used in numerous parts of the brewing process in craft breweries. It provides compressed air for aeration during fermentation, which is an important phase in the brewing process. Other uses for compressed air include removing yeast and beer from containers, cleaning, sanitation, and nitrogen manufacturing. Compressors are becoming more popular due to their multipurpose capabilities.

Mode Of Operation Insights

Automatic brewery equipment dominated the market, accounting for 54.3% of the global revenue share in 2022. The use of automation in the craft brewing process is increasing in order to simplify the process. The major players are investing in the development of automated equipment for the production of high-quality beers.

Large brewers use automation as a crucial infrastructure component to ensure the strength of their main industry, which includes beer production. As a result, these major breweries focus on large investments in autonomous fermentation technology, packaging capacity, and incremental brewing. The aforementioned factors are projected to propel the brewery equipment market forward.

 Global Brewery Equipment Market Share, by mode of operation, 2022 (%)

The semi-automatic segment is expected to increase at a CAGR of 5.7% throughout the projection period. The growing customer preference for artisanal and handcrafted beer over other distilled liquors or routinely brewed beer is expected to drive demand for brewing equipment. During the forecast period, the growing need for high-quality and cost-effective brewing equipment is expected to drive the semi-automatic equipment market.

The usage of manual brewing equipment is decreasing in comparison to automatic and semi-automatic equipment since it produces less beer and takes a long time the production of beer. Some home brewers utilize manual brewing equipment, but they are rapidly adopting automation equipment as it eliminates the laborious manual brewing methods.

Regional Insights

Europe dominated the market and accounted for a 47.7% share of the global revenue in 2022. Various key manufacturers of beer such as Carlsberg A/S, SABMiller, and Heineken N.V. are present in Europe which produces beer on large scale due to which use of brewery equipment is high in the region as well as the consumption of beer is rising in Europe which is expected to boost the market growth.

China dominated the Asia Pacific brewery equipment market, which is expected to rise at a rapid pace during the forecast period. As consumer knowledge of healthy lifestyles and eating habits grows in China, consumers prefer low-calorie or no-alcohol beer, and demand for craft beer grows as numerous health benefits are connected with it.

Brewery Equipment Market Trends by Region

Brewery equipment demand is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.7% in North America during the forecast period. The growing emphasis of various manufacturers in economies such as the U.S. and Canada on supplying premium taste drinks and new flavors is expected to drive demand for brewery equipment in North America.

Central & South America, as well as the Middle East & Africa, are likely to have considerable market expansion during the forecasted period. Relaxation of the restrictions and norms governing the establishment of breweries by the governments of various economies such as Brazil and Argentina are expected to benefit the market growth.
