Europe Rum Market Restraints

Growing Health Concerns

Low-alcohol Rum is becoming more popular because people are more aware of their health and want to live healthier lives. On the other hand, the world rum market isn't growing as fast as it could because more and more people want healthier drinks. Because of this, people are drinking less alcohol altogether.

Also, the alcohol people worldwide drank fell four times faster in 2016 than from 2011 to 2015. According to the Office for National Statistics, 16-year-olds and older who have had a drink in the past week fell by 7.3% between 2005 and 2016. Also, people who drink alcohol are drinking more non-alcoholic drinks now because they are more aware. People are switching to drinks without alcohol because they want to. According to the Office of National Statistics, the number of people who don't drink has increased in the UK since 2005. In 2017, about 20.4% of the population wasn't drinking.

Europe Rum Market Opportunities

Increasing Demand for Premium and High-Quality Rum

Several causes, such as a rise in interest in product quality and authenticity, a shift toward more affluent and sophisticated drinking situations, and an increased emphasis on health and wellbeing, all contribute to the demand. Offering premium aged rums made using conventional production techniques and matured in oak barrels is one way that rum companies satisfy this demand. For instance, the premium Venezuelan Rum Diplomático's Reserva Exclusiva, which may have matured for up to 12 years, has garnered numerous honors for its quality and flavor. The premium Guatemalan Rum Ron Zacapa's Centenario Solera 23, aged up to 23 years and renowned for its refined and nuanced flavor profile, is similar. Offering distinctive and out-of-the-ordinary flavor profiles that appeal to affluent and discriminating consumers is another method by that rum manufacturers can satisfy the demand for premium and high-quality rums. For instance, the limited-edition Rum Tributo 2019 from Havana Club is finished in barrels that once housed French cognac and are aged up to 20 years. The Rum is given a distinctive flavor character by this special aging method that distinguishes it from other rums on the market.
