The liquid extract obtained during the process of mashing while brewing beer or whiskey is known as wort concentrate. The product portfolio of wort concentrate is wide because the raw material used for the production of wort concentrate can vary. It can be produced from barley malt or wheat malt, which can segment with the usage of hopped or unhopped malt or other new variations of whole grain malts that are being introduced into the market. Wort concentrate contains sugars that are considered very important for brewing and alcohol production. This explains the wide usage of wort concentrate by brewers and other beer market participants. Besides sugars, wort concentrate also contributes to beer head retention, flavor, bitterness and aroma. Therefore, the consumers of wort concentrate, mostly brewers, are highly preferring wort concentrate over other traditional raw materials to add variation and uniqueness to the beer produced by them. Thus, with the continuous demand and supply cycle, the market revenue of wort concentrate is increasing and is expected increase further in the coming years.
Increased Usage of Wort Concentrate in Microbreweries and Craft Brewers is driving the Wort Extract Market
The production of wort concentrate is very time-efficient as compared to the production of other brewing raw materials. Therefore, several market players are expressing interest in the production of wort concentrate and the presence of a large number of market participants is boosting the share of the wort concentrate market in the overall alcohol industry. Brewing with wort concentrate lowers the investment costs as it demands lower labor, energy & water requirements and simplifies the brew production processes. As a result, the wort concentrate market is experiencing high consumption in small breweries or other microbrewers that cannot afford other costlier brewing ingredients. Besides being economical, wort concentrate also helps microbrewers compete with the dominant and larger alcohol producers by helping them produce and offer their premium quality and specialty craft beers that are produced from different varieties of wort concentrate. This increased consumption and a subsequent increase in the demand for wort concentrate by microbrewers and craft brewers is driving the wort concentrate market.
Global changes in consumption patterns have resulted in the demand for healthier ingredients. To cater to these demands, manufacturers such as Döhler and Breiss are offering gluten-free wort concentrate. The wort concentrate market has significant potential to expand globally, however, this opportunity is hampered by the heavy import-export taxes that are being implemented on beer and other alcoholic beverages, which also vary from country to country.
