FMI’s Survey Reveals : Germany accounts for 60% of Europe’s market for Beer Fermenter

FMI’s Survey Reveals : Germany accounts for 60% of Europe’s market for Beer Fermenter with high quality

The global beer fermenter market is anticipated to reach a valuation of US$ 1,152.2 million in 2023. From 2023 to 2033, the market is poised to register growth at a 3.4% CAGR. In 2033, the market’s value is set to reach US$ 1,609.7 million.

A beer fermenter is a vessel in which wort is converted into beer through the process of yeast fermentation. The process of fermentation involves yeast consuming sugars present in the wort and producing alcohol and carbon dioxide gas. Beer fermenters are available in different shapes, such as conical, cylindrical-conical, horizontal, and unitanks.

Consumers can pick from different materials as well, such as stainless steel and glass. While both materials are popular, Future Market Insights (FMI) predicts stainless steel fermenter sales to outperform sales of glass beer fermenters between 2023 and 2033. Glass fermenters allow brewers to observe fermentation, which stainless steel fermenters do not. However, in terms of durability and maintenance, stainless steel fermenters are better as they are easy to clean and do not rust. Brewers also need to be very careful when handling glass fermenters as any instance of mishandling may result in a shattered glass.

Beer fermenter sales are predicted to be dominated by leading and emerging names in the commercial beer sector from 2023 to 2033. Sales of large beer fermenters are expected to be exclusive to commercial beer producers and establishments that brew their own beer. These industrial-scale fermenters can produce up to 1,000 gallons of beer in one go.

United Kingdom Beer Fermenters performance

Microbreweries and Micropubs Expected to Drive Demand for Beer Fermenters in the United Kingdom

The United Kingdom is projected to become a lucrative market for beer fermenter machines between 2023 and 2033. This is due to the increasing popularity of craft beer in the country. Right now, the United Kingdom is home to more than 1,000 breweries, and this number is expected to reflect a rapid rise in the coming years.

In the United Kingdom, microbreweries have risen to prominence due to significant Excise Duty reductions. Prior to the 2000s, microbreweries were next to non-existent in the country. However, in 2002, ideas began to be floated that eventually culminated in policy changes that were supportive of establishing microbreweries and micropubs. Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), a voluntary consumer organization, has given credit to the United Kingdom’s microbreweries and micropubs in the recent past for creating ‘real’ ale.
