Sales revenue of the global wine barrel market is expected grow 1.65X over the forecast period. The global wine barrel market is estimated to represent an incremental $ opportunity of more than US$ 2,000 Mn during the forecast period.

With nearly 50% revenue share, French Oak segment is likely to lead the global wine barrel market in 2017

American oak and French oak wood are the top raw materials used in the manufacture of wine barrels particularly in North America and Europe. There is abundant availability of oak wood in the market with large as well as small suppliers. However, raw material suppliers have a high bargaining power due to high demand for oak barrels from premium wine makers / vineyards. The American Oak segment is expected to create an incremental opportunity of close to US$ 670 Mn during the forecast period. This segment is estimated to account for more than 35% revenue share of the global wine barrel market in 2017. However, French Oak will continue to be the largest segment in this category during the forecast period.

Increasing adoption of alternatives to wine barrels expected to negatively impact global market revenues throughout the projected period

According to the information provided by the various cooperages, around two barrels can be easily manufactured with the wood that is produced from the oak tree. These two barrels have a capacity to hold nearly 50 cases of wine. However, the demand for alternatives to wine barrels has increased since last few years. Some of the barrel alternatives include oak chips, spirals, granules and staves. These alternatives are a cheap and easy solution to maintain the oak flavor that comes with barrels. This factor is creating a negative impact on the global wine barrel market. It is necessary that wine barrels should be stored at a temperature of 100 Celsius. However, with increasing global warming, the ageing of wine gets faster that results in more loss of wine from the barrels due to the process of evaporation. Some countries such as Brazil, Argentina and Chile stay humid for most part of the year. This increasing temperature is a major concern as high temperatures result in high evaporation of wine.

Alcohol prohibition in most of the countries in the MEA region is another factor that is a restraint in the growth of the global wine barrels market. Iraq, United Arab Emirates, Libya, Qatar, Somalia, Yemen and Kuwait are some of the countries that have either completely banned the consumption of alcoholic beverages or have enforced fractional ban on alcohol consumption. Devaluation of the Pound post Brexit is also a significant factor creating negative impact on the global wine barrel market for the past year. In 2016-2017, the total value of wine exports from countries such as Spain, Italy and France dropped by 10%. It is to note here that the above mentioned countries are the largest exporters of wine to the United Kingdom. This factor is one of the obstacles in the revenue growth of the global wine barrel market.
