Increasing urban population and rising disposable income anticipated to fuel the development of the India alcohol market
Rapid increase in urban population is one of the key factors that is boosting the India alcohol market. Traditionally, brown spirits have been targeted at the urban consumer. As such, increasing urban population coupled with factors such as increasing disposable income and growing preference for whiskies is expected to create avenues for growth of the alcohol market in India.
Changing demographics is further expected to boost the India alcohol market. As of 2014, over half the country’s population (53%) was above the age of 25 years. Moreover, estimated median age of the country’s population for the same year was pegged at 27 years. The legal drinking age in India varies from state to state. For instance, 18 years in Goa, Uttar Pradesh and Karnataka; 21 years in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh; and 25 years in Maharashtra, Delhi and Punjab.
The aforementioned statistics indicate that India is an ideal market for high revenue growth of alcohol owing to increasing consumption among the people. According to World Bank statistics, GDP per capita income of the country for the year 2014 was pegged at more than US$ 1,595. The increase in per capita disposable income is expected to result in higher consumer spending on different lifestyle products and food and beverages, including alcohol.
This increase is expected to drive the growth of the alcohol market in the country. The Indian lifestyle, especially of the urban populace, has witnessed a radical change over the recent years. A change in outlook towards social consumption of alcohol, increasing alcohol consumption among women, growing prominence of “pub and cocktail culture” in urban cities and emergence of novel Food & Beverage formats has resulted in increasing demand for alcoholic beverages in the country.
All these factors are boosting the revenue growth of the India alcohol market and this growth trend is anticipated to continue throughout the forecast period.
