World’s fifth biggest importer by volume, British report says.

Canada’s wine consumption is growing six times faster than the world average, a new report has found.

The study was conducted by British research firm ISWR for Vinexpo, the biennial international wine and spirits trade show held in Bordeaux, France.

Researchers examined worldwide wine consumption trends from 2005 to 2014.

Between 2005 and 2009, Canadians increased their wine consumption to a total of 40.4 million cases, an increase of more than 22.5 per cent.

From 2010 to 2014, Canada’s consumption is predicted to increase to 49.7 million cases, representing an increase of 19 per cent. In contrast, the world average consumption between 2010 to 2014 is predicted to rise to 2.73 billion cases, an increase of only 3.18 per cent.
