Furthermore, premium quality craft beer is preferred by consumers mostly from Europe and North America. Craft beer demand has risen as the number of Generations X and Y has grown.

Leading competitors in the global fortified wine market are focusing on introducing new fortified wine flavours in order to meet shifting client preferences.
