Key Market Trends
Growing demand for plant-based and lactose-free products
Lactose intolerance is exceptionally widespread in the developed regions, such as North America and European countries. For instance, Turkey, Italy, Germany, and Spain were recorded to have some of the largest numbers of lactose-intolerant consumers. Moreover, Asian counties, such as China and Japan, are too making inroads for the plant-based and lactose-free food and beverage lifestyle, thus, driving the market forward. Such allergies and intolerances are major reasons behind going dairy-free, especially considering the Food Allergy Initiative’s statistic showing that allergy caused by cow’s milk is the leading food allergy in infants and children. Therefore, this created a market for plant-based or non-dairy milk alternative as the fast-growing segment of functional beverage.
Asia-Pacific holds the Largest Market Share
The high incidence of cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and arthritis coupled with the growing demand for convenience beverages and the changing lifestyle among Asian consumers are the major drivers for the growth of functional energy drinks, fortified/functional plant-based and malt-based hot drinks sales in the market. Further, due to the high prevalence of diabetes in the countries like India and China, consumers are becoming more aware regarding the importance of healthy diet and active lifestyle promoting the consumers to prefer natural sweeteners, such as stevia, in their beverages. According to the International Diabetes Federation, India was home to 77 million diabetes patients in 2019, the second-largest in the world. By 2030, the number is predicted to reach 101 million. Thus, companies like PepsiCo Inc. and Coca-Cola, are committed to remove artificial ingredients and reduce the sugar content in their products
The global functional beverage market is a fragmented market and comprises numerous regional and international competitors.
