Wine Consumption

The world’s annual consumption of wine is almost 250 million hectoliters. That corresponds to the volume of 10,000 Olympic-size swimming pools.

The United States accounts for 30 million hectoliters and is the world’s largest market for wine – a position it took over from France in 2013. However, with an annual consumption per capita of around 10 liters the United States has a lower consumption per capita than almost all other wine- producing countries.     China is the world’s fifth largest market for wine at almost 18 million hectoliters per year but the country’s annual consumption per capita is still modest at 1.3 liters.

Data sources
This map uses data by International Organization of Vine and Wine (last accessed March 2018). We aim to map as complete data as possible and therefore estimate data for missing values. In some cases, missing data for very small territories is not used in the cartogram and that area is therefore omitted in the map.

All modifications to the original data source are noted in our data sheets.
