Wine is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented grapes or other fruits. Red wine, white wine, rose wine, sparkling wine, and dessert wine are some of the major types of wine consumed globally. Wine production involves grape harvesting, crushing, fermentation, aging, bottling, and marketing. Vineyards, winemaking facilities, packaging lines, distribution networks, and retail stores are some of the key components of the global wine industry value chain. Wine is consumed for social as well as health purposes due to its antioxidant properties. It is also used in culinary applications and religious rituals in some parts of the world. The growth of social drinking activities across pubs, restaurants, and parties has boosted the consumption of wine globally.
The global wine market is estimated to be valued at US$ 3422.75 billion in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 30% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights. With rising disposable incomes and changing lifestyles, wine consumption has increased significantly in developing nations. The growing preference for premium wines with unique flavors and high-quality packaging is also fueling the market growth.
The market is expected to witness significant growth due to two major drivers – the rising social drinking activities and growing preference for premium wines globally. As young population prefers socializing over weekends at pubs, bars, and lounges, the consumption of wine has increased substantially during festivities, parties, and get-togethers. According to a survey, over 62% of millennials consume wine or cocktails every weekend due to increasing social life. The rising number of specialty wine stores, online retail channels, and innovative packaging solutions has made premium wines more accessible to consumers. This has boosted the demand for high-quality wines made from distinctive grape varieties and terroirs. The premiumization trend in the wine industry is thus expected to continue driving the market growth over the forecast period.
