Craft beer market in Europe: Labeling and packaging innovations
With the rising number of microbreweries and other distribution channels exponentially in Europe, it becomes imperative for vendors to differentiate their products from those of competitors. The important parameters of product differentiation are the application of innovative packaging techniques and attractive labeling. The two most popular types of packaging variants are bottles and cans, with bottles being the dominating packaging variant. In recent years, the popularity for cans has increased, and many consumers have shown greater inclination toward the use of cans. For instance, in July 2018, the Netherlands-based craft brewer Brouwerij Homeland Amsterdam collaborated with the US-based BALL CORPORATION for the creation of a unique, blank can, with an aim to create a strong, stand out design. Such innovations are expected to contribute largely to the growth of the craft beer market in Europe.
Europe has witnessed a significant growth in the number of microbreweries and craft breweries operating in the region in the last five years. The number of microbreweries and craft breweries has nearly doubled in the last five years. For instance, the number of craft breweries in the UK has grown from 723 in 2015 to 1,655 in 2017, with an increase of 128.91% in just two years. In Germany, the number of craft breweries has grown from 307 in 2015 to 1,295 in 2017, witnessing an increase of 321.80% in just two years..
