The market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 11.6%, earning revenues of around USD 27.35 billion by the end of 2028. The Global Fortified Wine Market is booming because of the premiumization of wine goods and their various health advantages. Additionally, in the approaching years, market growth is expected to be accelerated by technological development in production and flavor innovation. The demand for alcoholic beverages for various special occasions is increasing, which is helping the business thrive. Consumption of the product is seen as social recognition, which will fuel industry expansion throughout the projection period. Additionally, drinking fortified wine has several positive health effects. These are the primary market growth drivers. However, over the projected period, the market is anticipated to hinder growth due to rising taxes on wine in some countries and strict government rules and regulations.

Wine Brands’ Increasing Expenditure on Product Marketing

The increased investment by notable companies in product marketing and promotion to improve customer awareness is predicted to significantly contribute to industry growth in the coming years. Various countries, particularly that outside of Europe, have a distorted opinion of fortified wines, and their flavor is seen as undesirable and unsuitable. Increased promotional measures to improve knowledge of the benefits of fortified wine and to make fortified wine an indispensable component of social events and fine dining are likely to aid market growth. As a result, the expanding educational marketing of fortified wine is expected to promote the growth of the fortified wine business.

Rising Premiumization Product Demand and the Development of New Flavors

Premiumization promotes the expansion of the fortified wine sector since premium fortified wines have a good and promising effect on customer perception. As the middle-class population grows, premiumization can be seen in a variety of settings. By generating a sense of status around fortified wine, premiumization stimulates its consumption. Given that consumers’ perceptions of premium fortified wines are positive and enthusiastic, premiumization is projected to boost the market’s rise. This will most likely boost the fortified market shortly. During the forecast period, all of these factors will drive the growth of the Global Fortified Wine Market (2022-2028).

Challenge: Fortified Wines Include a Lot of Sugar and Calories

Wine naturally contains more sugar than the majority of alcoholic beverages because it is derived from grapes. Many varieties of fortified wine have even more sugar because spirits are added to the wine during the fermentation process before the sugars are converted to alcohol. Some types are sweetened after fermentation, greatly increasing the sugar amount. Port wines, which are sweet dessert wines, have about 7 grams of sugar every 3-ounce (88-ml) cup. Consuming sugar has been related to several diseases, such as diabetes, obesity, liver issues, and heart disease. According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2015-2020, added sugar should make up no more than 10% of daily calories, or roughly 50 grams, per person.
