Hard Tea Market Growth & Trends

The global hard tea market size is expected to reach USD 14.50 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 24.7% over the forecast period, based on a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Consumers’ shift from unhealthy drinking and eating habits toward low-calorie food and beverages is driving the demand for hard teas. Brands operating in the hard tea market are launching beverages that have low-alcohol content. Growing awareness towards reducing alcohol intake is acting as an opportunity for manufacturers to provide beverages with botanical ingredients to provide a healthier image to spiked hard teas.

The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the need for online retail purchases in all sectors. Nowadays, customers are willing to purchase alcoholic beverages online. It is an opportunity for manufacturers to increase their market share in the industry. The stay-at-home orders by governments in several parts of the world accelerated the need for companies to organize and scale up their businesses.

For instance, in the U.S., numerous liquor and small shops enabled online delivery services for their customers. For instance, Drizly helped in improving the count of retail partners for smaller stores from 1,800 to 4,000 by the end of 2020. States such as Arkansas, Georgia, and Ohio have legalized the delivery of alcohol. Further, Instacart announced the same-day delivery of alcohol from 180 stores by partnering with Meijer. It is expected to expand its presence in more than 75% of the households in the U.S.
