Retail market volume of alcoholic beverages in the UK 2015, by beverage type

This statistic displays the volume of the alcoholic beverage market in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2015, by type of beverage. As shown on the graph above, over half the volume of the alcoholic beverage retail market is made up of beer at 17.3 million hectoliters, followed by wine at 7.5 million hectoliters. In terms of consumption, the market for alcoholic beverages in the United Kingdom is centered around beer, which makes up the majority of sales in both the on-trade and off-trade, although more so for the former. The share of alcohol sold on-trade, however, has decreased over time in favor of the off-trade, likely due to increased prices as a result of tax. Consequently, annual expenditure on alcoholic beverages, when based on volume, has remained fairly stable.
