Cider/perry has been among the fastest growing alcoholic drinks categories of the past five years. In mature markets, cider has evolved alongside legislative changes and is benefiting from consumer interest in premiumisation, natural credentials and flavour initiatives. Innovation has been a critical aspect of cider’s progression, underlining the cyclical nature of the category.
Although cider has seen considerable geographic expansion in recent years, global volumes remain concentrated in a few markets - notably the UK, South Africa and the US, which together accounted for 61% of category sales in 2018. Five of the top 10 markets for cider are in Western Europe - the region continues to dominate cider in both volume and value.
Other maturing cider regions - North America and Australasia - also hold a greater share of total cider by value than by volume, as they lead premiumisation in the category. While cider has a fairly strong presence in South Africa and increasingly Eastern Europe, these geographies are currently more volume focused.
