Hard Seltzer - Overview

Hard seltzer is a carbonated drink that is produced as is beer but with little sugar. A small amount of sugar is added to the carbonated water which is then fermented by yeast that turns sugar into alcohol. This alcohol content is extremely low and is generally around 5%. The calorie count is also limited to these drinks. However, both alcohol and calorie content differ in every brand. Hard seltzer is mostly available in cans.

Global Hard Seltzer Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Rising Health Consciousness among Consumers

The hard seltzer is gaining huge popularity among consumers as an effective replacement for regular alcohol. With the rising health consciousness among consumers and their efforts to decrease their alcohol consumption, the demand for hard seltzer is projected to surge in the forecast period. This is because hard seltzer is healthier compared to other alcoholic beverages due to fewer calories, sugars, and carbs. Furthermore, they are also 100% gluten-free which makes them safe for people with celiac disease.

Increasing Popularity of Online Sales Channels

Since the COVID-19 pandemic halted the distribution channels for hard seltzer, online stores emerged as an effective alternative for the purchase and sales of these products. Since people started focusing on their health more during the pandemic, their consumption pattern through the online stores as the major buying channels also changed. Due to this, the demand for hard seltzer on online stores such as Amazon.com, Target, etc., witnessed a significant spike during this period. This pattern is projected to expand in the forecast period, propelling the overall market growth.

Restraints

Negative Health Impact due to Overconsumption

Hard seltzer contains less sugar and is considered better for health compared to alcohol. However, this fine line is often blurred when consumers start replacing hard seltzer with health drinks, which further leads to overconsumption. Experts claim that overconsumption of hard seltzer can lead to negative health consequences similar to alcohol and therefore consumed in moderation. It can cause impairment, inflammation, dehydration, and addiction. This acts as a huge restraining factor for the global hard seltzer market.
