Rise in Disposable Income and Changing Lifestyle to Fuel Demand for Non-Alcoholic Drinks
Non-alcoholic drinks are highly in demand, especially from the young consumer base from developing nations such as India and China. The growing disposable income is another important factor leading to an increased consumption of non-alcoholic drinks. “The changing lifestyle, growing population, and rising temperature owing to global warming are some of the other factors behind the high demand for non-alcoholic drinks,” says a TMR analyst. Also, the long shelf life of these beverages are driving the growth of the market. Many of the health conscious consumers are opting for juices and this is expected to drive the market. Marketing strategies adopted by companies and increased penetration of hypermarkets, supermarkets, and retailers are fueling the sales of non-alcoholic drinks across the globe.
Health Concerns to Dampen Demand for Non-Alcoholic Drinks
Some of the factors inhibiting the growth of the global non-alcoholic drinks market are rising concerns with regards to health effects of artificially sweetened beverages and increasing awareness regarding obesity. Incidences of diabetes are also growing and many consumers are avoiding artificially sweetened drinks. Tooth decay is another factor that is refraining consumers from purchasing soda and carbonated drinks. Growing prevalence of osteoporosis is another reason hindering the demand for non-alcoholic drinks. Consumers are demanding zero-sugar drinks and diet beverages. Changing customer demands thus, become a challenge for players. Market players are therefore, focusing on introducing new healthier variants with lower calories as per customer needs. Additionally, new product launches are expected to create growth opportunities in the market. Manufacturers are now ensuring that their package contain nutrition information, such as calories and sugar.
