Global beer consumption market
revenue in 2023
Africa’s beer market is thriving, with beer consumption reaching approximately 140.7 million hectoliters in 2019, equivalent to about 23.3 billion beer bottles of 633 milliliters each. The demand for this alcoholic beverage has been steadily increasing, growing by 5.2% compared to the previous year. Currently, Africa holds nearly eight percent of the global beer consumption market, showcasing its significance in the industry.
The projected revenue for the Beer market in 2023 is estimated at US$29.41 billion, with an expected annual growth rate of 6.16% until 2027. Despite the average per person revenue being US$23.40 in 2023, Africa’s volume consumption is impressive, expected to reach 16.28 billion liters by 2027, with a 3.9% growth anticipated in 2024.
Africa’s beer market is further influenced by the trend of spending and volume consumption in the out-of-home segment, which is projected to reach 11% and 8%, respectively, by 2027. This indicates a significant interest in the hospitality sector and the growing popularity of beer in bars and restaurants across the continent.

Brewery Excellence Unleashed: Celebrating Collaborations with SNB and Swinkels Family Brewers
One of our notable achievements is our collaboration with Société Nouvelle de Boissons S.A. (SNB), a Swiss/Togolaise Investment Group. SNB entrusted us with the task of building a state-of-the-art brewery in Togo, the country’s second brewery.
