Beer market in the US: Introduction of new beer flavors

The growing popularity of flavored beer in the US is attributable to the increasing volume of consumers in the beer market in the US. The introduction of new flavors in the craft beer segment has led to a boost in the beer market in the US. Flavors set a beer apart from one another and act as a point of differentiation for the consumers. The millennials, one of the largest demography in the US population, is a targeted segment of breweries. The preference of millennials towards flavored beers has seen breweries adopting and incorporating newer flavors in their beer offerings. For example, in April 2018, AB InBev launched Bud Light orange, an orange flavored Light in an aim to capitalize on the popularity of flavored lagers. Thus, the increasing demand for new flavors is expected to lead to the introduction of new flavored beers during the forecast period.

“Along with introduction of new beer flavors, another major factor boosting the growth of the market is multicultural millennials. These millennials are open to experimenting with new products and flavors. The increasing demand for different beers styles and flavors among millennials is driving the growth of the craft beer segment in the beer market in the US,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on alcoholic beverages.
