With growing wine consumption in China, a lack of domestic wine grapes will become an increasingly serious issue.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 08, 2012
Over the five years through 2012, revenue for the Wine Production industry in China has been growing at an annualized rate of 21.3% to $7.0 billion in 2012. The industry has also become increasingly profitable as demand grew and pricing levels remained steady.
Wine is becoming more fashionable in China and wine consumption has been steadily increasing, especially among white-collar workers and young people, says IBISWorld. Various media have been popularizing wine culture and foreign enterprises have held many wine-tasting promotions. This has helped enrich consumer knowledge of wine and stimulated wine consumption. In addition, the government has been encouraging the consumption of drinks with lower alcohol content, such as wine. Attracted by the growing Chinese market, many foreign winemakers have entered the Wine Production industry, mostly targeting high-end markets.
In 2012, revenue of the industry's top four winemakers, including Yantai Changyu, Dynasty, COFCO and Yantai Weilong, account for about a third of total revenue, indicating a medium level of industry concentration. Large investments in market channel development and vertical integration have enabled the major players to increase market share.
IBISWorld anticipates that growing consumer purchasing power in China will continue to drive domestic demand growth for the Wine Production industry. However, with accelerated output levels, a lack of raw materials (i.e. wine grapes) will become a serious industry issue, as there are only nine major wine grape production bases in China. To alleviate this problem, large enterprises will continue to develop their own vineyards and introduce better grape varieties.
