Introduction and Landscape

Why was the report written?The 2012 USA Cider Market Insights report is a high level market research report on the USA cider industry.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?

Cider continued to grow strongly in the USA, with volumes up by over 25% in 2011. Cider appeals to both men and women and a relatively young demographic. Typically sweeter than beer, cider appeals to drinkers who are entering the alcohol market. Fruit flavored ciders are becoming increasingly popular, as are pear based ciders. The market is benefiting from increasing premiumisation.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?Cider seems to be following a similar development pattern to the craft beer sector. As with craft beer, the sector is driven by enthusiasts, and a sense of rediscovery. Innovation is very important and many producers are now producing seasonal and limited edition products and marketing 'variety' packs containing a number of brand variants. Many producers are actively promoting consumer knowledge of cider, and in particular of apple varieties.

Key Market Issues

The American palate tends to favor sweeter tastes and many drinkers find English style ciders too dry. This is especially true on the West Coast, East Coast drinkers being more attuned to dryer styles.

Increased competition means some brands will decline, though Hornsby's was the only major brand to witness declining volume and share in 2011.

Hornsby's move to 33cl (11oz) bottles was not followed by anyone else, and may have backfired, being perceived as a cynical way of increasing prices.

Overall prices increased by around 4%, driven by increased premium offerings.

Hornsby's suffered from a lack of focus and investment as part of the Gallo wine business.

Key Highlights

Cider continued to grow strongly, driven by innovation.

Cider's growth is expected to continue unabated with the market predicted to grow by around 30% in 2012. The entry of major brewers into the category, together with innovative marketing and product development, should see cider emulate the trajectory experienced by craft beer.

Historically, cider was often a name given to a non-alcoholic apple drink in the US, and consequently alcoholic ciders were often labeled as 'hard' ciders. One consequence of the increasing popularity of cider is the fact that most American consumers now seem to understand the term cider to refer to the alcoholic drink, and most brands have dropped the word 'hard' from their names.

As with the craft beer business, a lot of the really spectacular growth is coming from the grassroots level. Crispin was the fastest growing brand in 2011, posting a 300% plus increase.

The market is benefiting from increasing premiumisation, with premium ciders, which account for a quarter of the market, growing at more than double the rate of mainstream cider.
