Palm Beach, FL – October 25, 2022 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – Wine sales have surged across the U.S. owing to innovation in flavor, color, and packaging of the product. Furthermore, the continued importation of high-quality wines into the U.S. is likely to sustain a solid customer base and propel market growth in the near future. The emergence of COVID-19 triggered a worldwide catastrophe, on a scale never seen before. Aside from endangering human health and life, the pandemic had a significant detrimental influence on companies all around the world. However, not all industries have been equally affected. While the great majority of on-premises stores were required to close during the start of the pandemic, the off-trade wine business in the U.S. has enjoyed good sales. The COVID-19 pandemic has led many people to use e-commerce for day-to-day operations as well as for ordering alcohol, thus driving the off-trade distribution channel segment. A report from Grand View Research projected that the U.S. wine market size, which was valued at USD 63.69 billion in 2021 is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.8% from 2022 to 2030. Wine consumption has become a sign of social status, especially among the millennials and young generation, which is driving the market. The report said: “Mergers, acquisitions, and consolidation have been occurring among wineries worldwide. Companies are increasingly focusing on producing new products to gain market share in the world… Key market players focus on strategies such as innovation and new product launches to enhance their portfolio offerings in the market.” Active companies in the markets this week include Splash Beverage Group, Inc. (NYSE: SBEV), Brown-Forman Corporation (NYSE: BF.A) (NYSE: BF.B), Constellation Brands, Inc. (NYSE: STZ), Ambev S.A. (NYSE: ABEV), Diageo plc (NYSE: DEO).
The Grandview article continued: “The table wine segment led the market and accounted for a revenue share of over 80.0% in 2021. It is one of the oldest and most common types of alcohol consumed in the U.S. The availability of true table wine with a premium appeal to customers, easy availability, and affordable prices have resulted in increased sales in the U.S. Furthermore, it is expected to continue growing due to the increased consumption of liquor and the rising demand for it as a celebration wine. The sparkling wine segment is anticipated to expand at the fastest CAGR of 7.7% from 2022 to 2030. The market is likely to be driven by a rise in the consumption of champagne and prosecco. In addition, manufacturers have offered a diverse selection of low-cost items in the sector category, which has played a significant role in driving the segment. Furthermore, sparkling wine is expected to grow fast due to the benefits it provides to the heart and skin. It also helps to improve gut health and digestion as it contains polyphenols from red grapes, which promotes the growth of good gut bacteria.”
