New Jersey, NJ, Nov. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Impact of online retailing is generating more awareness among consumers about gluten-free beer and increasing consciousness of the health benefits of gluten-free products are the two major factors boosting the market growth. The  is expected to grow from USD 5.6 Billion in 2017 to USD 18.7 Billion by 2025 at a CAGR of 16.3% during the forecast period from 2018-2025, according to the new report published by Fior Markets.

Gluten-free beer is made with an enzyme that breaks down glutinous proteins during the fermentation process. The enzyme does not eliminate the gluten from the beer, but breaks it down to below the 20ppm threshold thereby, making it harmless to people with gluten sensitivity. Beer is one of the most commonly consumed alcoholic beverages. However, the consumption of conventional barley beer is not safe for coeliac patients. The accessibility of tasty gluten-free beers considerably improves gluten-sensitive peoples’ well-being. Gluten-free beer is beer made from ingredients which do not have gluten such as millet, rice, sorghum, buckwheat or corn (maize). People who have gluten intolerance (including celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis sufferers) have a reaction to certain proteins in the grains commonly used to make beer, barley and wheat. Brewers who manufacture low gluten beers check every batch for gluten, and record gluten levels in “parts per million” (‘ppm‘). Although the quantity of barley in such tests may not be detected, smaller pieces of these proteins, known as peptides, may remain and be toxic for celiacs.

Rising awareness of the benefits of gluten-free products is a major factor driving the market. Growing health concerns among the consumers is paving the way for manufacturers to achieve new milestones in manufacturing products. Also, the increasing effect of online retailing is gaining attraction in the gluten-free beer market during the next few years which is fuelling the growth of market. The high price of gluten-free beers which deter the gluten-free beer market may hamper the growth of the market. However, new product development and innovations by leading companies and proactive marketing by retailers about gluten free products will boost the market in the coming years.
