Overview of the German RTD Alcoholic Drinks Market

Amidst rising prices and increased health awareness, which causes consumers to moderate their alcohol consumption, the growth rate of retail value and volume of ready-to-drinks will slow down noticeably.

However, inflation offers private labels opportunities to gain RTD alcoholic drinks market share Germany. Up to 2028, Mintel experts project high single-digit value growth for the German RTD alcoholic drinks market.

  • RTD Alcoholic Drinks Market Size Germany: In 2023 the alcoholic drinks industry in Germany has experienced 9.8% growth.

RTD Alcoholic Drinks Trends in Germany: What Consumers Want and Why

  • The Cost of Living & RTD Alcoholic Drinks Market Share Germany: As costs rise, consumers prioritise price and value, thus, opening up opportunities for private labels to gain RTD alcoholic drinks market share Germany. However, brands can promote their products as a treat through premiumisation – which is a popular trend – as 52% of RTD consumers are willing to pay more for a premium brand.
  • RTD Alcoholic Drinks Trends in Germany: The rise in non-drinkers and reduced alcohol intake among consumers are reflective of the impact of the financial crisis and growing health awareness – 53% of buyers were prompted to purchase fewer RTDs than they usually do. To mitigate future decline in volume sales due to health trends, brands should add items with functional ingredients and reduced alcohol and sugar contents to their product lines. Introducing new concepts like mindful drinking and spirits can further enhance the appeal of the RTD category, cementing the market’s long-term future.

With the alcohol moderation trend offering potential for low- and non-alcohol RTDs, adjacent categories are already venturing into the RTD sector, offering a range of non-alcoholic alternatives. This strategic expansion showcases brands’ recognition of the growing demand for healthier, alcohol-free options.

  • German RTD Alcoholic Drinks Market Opportunities: According to Mintel’s market research, over-35-year-olds drink significantly fewer RTDs or are more likely to be non-drinkers, as they typically take greater care of their health and prefer less-sweet drinks. Reduced or non-alcohol alternatives are thus well placed to tap into this usage gap.
