Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Spirit Production industry has performed well during the past five years. Challenging economic conditions and the long-term decline in spirit consumption have constrained domestic consumption of spirits for most of the period. However, this has been more than offset by a boom in demand for exports, particularly of Scotch whisky. Demand for whisky has soared in emerging markets across Asia, Latin America and Africa due to aspirational spending by young affluent consumers. Robust export demand and product innovation are estimated to underpin growth of 6.4% in 2014-15. During the five years through 2014-15, revenue is estimated to grow at a compound annual rate of 4.9% to £5.6 billion.
