The global cider market is experiencing remarkable growth, with a valuation of USD 8.87 billion and a projected Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 6.38%, set to reach nearly USD 13 billion by 2028, as stated in the "Global Cider Market Outlook, 2028" report.

In recent years, the global cider market has undergone significant transformation and expansion. While traditional cider primarily features apples, flavored cider incorporates a diverse range of fruit blends, spices, and other ingredients for enhanced flavors. The market also highlights the growing popularity of premium and craft cider products, catering to consumers seeking unique tastes and higher-quality offerings.

Cider is increasingly viewed as a healthier alternative to beer and wine due to its natural fruit content and gluten-free properties. Manufacturers are introducing innovative fruit blends, botanical infusions, and experimental cider styles, often focusing on local and eco-friendly sourcing.

Key Market Segments and Trends:

  • Product Type Segmentation: The market features hard cider as the top-selling product, with dry cider and soft cider gaining popularity. Dry cider, with its crisp and refreshing taste and lower residual sugar content, is capturing the interest of wine enthusiasts and craft beer drinkers. Soft cider, often non-alcoholic and reminiscent of traditional cider, appeals to a wide consumer base, offering a nostalgic and inclusive experience.
  • Sweet Cider Varieties: Sweet cider can be non-alcoholic (soft cider) or fermented to produce sweet hard cider with a lower alcohol content. Ice cider, also known as apple ice wine, is gaining traction due to its unique process that concentrates sugars and flavors, resulting in a sweet and intense cider with higher alcohol content, growing at a CAGR of 7.33%.
  • Packaging Preferences: Aluminum cans are a preferred choice for consumers due to their convenience, portability, durability, and recyclability, aligning with growing sustainability concerns. Flavored ciders are incorporating various fruit infusions and unique flavor pairings to create distinctive drinking experiences.

Conventional cider, while more widely available and often less expensive, is coexisting with organic cider as consumer demand grows.
