Hard Seltzer Market: By ABV Content

In 2020, hard seltzer with an alcohol by volume (ABV) of 5.0 to 6.9% added the most to global sales. This is largely due to a change in market preference away from alcoholic drinks such as spirits, beer, and wine towards hard seltzer with an ABV of even more than 5 percent. Moreover, hard seltzer with a 5 percent alcohol by volume (ABV) is the most common proportion of ingredients provided by producers. Canteen, Lift Bridge, Cutwater Spirits, Ficks, Pompette, Seekout, Bud Light, Brizzy, Truly, Vive, Arctic Summer, Kona Spiked, White Claw, Wild Basin, Bluemarble Pure Love, and NATRAL are some of the famous brands that make hard seltzers with the above alcohol level. The hard seltzer from CANTEEN is made of authentic vodka, sparkling water, and all-natural flavors. It was first released in March of 2020.

During the forecast period, hard seltzer with an ABV of 1.0 percent to 4.9 percent is predicted to rise at the highest pace. The development of this market is aided by a consumer population that prefers low-alcohol beverages. Press, Bon and Viv, Narwater, Two Roads, Henry's, Willie's Superbrew, Barefoot, High Noon, Omission, Pulp Culture, Smirnoff, and Crook and Marker are some of the major labels that sell these products.

In 2020, off-trade accounted for the majority of global sales in the hard seltzer market. Convenience stores, kiosks, hypermarkets, mini markets, wine, supermarkets, and spirits shops are all offering hard seltzers in growing numbers.

Taffer's Mixologist collaborated with Thirstie, an e-commerce platform that provides direct-to-consumer (DTC) sales for alcohol products, in May 2020 to enable customers to purchase hard seltzer through      online platforms. During the forecast period, on-trade is projected to rise at the fastest pace. The growing number of people who drink hard seltzers in bars and restaurants has created a huge market for the product.
