The ten largest breweries in the world account for more than two-thirds of the market share in terms of production. Together they produce 1.235m hectolitres of beer. Number one in the world, InBev, is responsible for a quarter of all global beer production.



The ten largest beer-producing countries produce almost 64 percent of the world's beer. China is by far the largest producer, with three of the ten largest breweries in the world located here.
