What kept the industry from declining during and immediately after the recession was a trend toward premiumization, which is an increase in the consumption of high-grade liquors and spirits. An increase in the popularity of cocktails, over beer and wine, through the recovery also drove demand for low-quality industry products used for mixing drinks in bars and restaurants. IBISWorld estimates that industry revenue will increase in the five years to 2014.

Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

Premiumization, the trend where consumers trade up to higher-quality and higher-priced spirits, has been the main driver behind revenue growth in the Distilleries industry during the past five years. The emergence of a cocktail culture in the mid-2000s also pushed industry performance forward as people became selective about the taste of their drinks. These combined trends have pushed distillery revenue to increase at an estimated average annual rate of 3.7% since 2009, totaling record $10.1 billion in 2014. Industry growth of 6.6% is expected in 2014 as improved consumer sentiment results in higher sales. To help meet demand, employment is expected to grow at an annualized rate of 5.4% to 7,118 workers in 2014... purchase to read more
