While global consumption of still and sparkling wine continues to decline slightly the United States market continues steady growth. The Americas account for just over 23 percent of global volume, growing at slow but steady rate of 1 percent per year since 2011. North America accounts for two thirds of the Americas volume with the U.S. as the largest market globally for still wine and fourth largest for sparkling wine. Sparkling wine, while smaller in volume, has been growing at a much higher rate compared to still wine. In 2017 sparkling wine was up over seven percent with an average growth rate of 5 percent annually since 2011.
