What you need to know

Years of successive growth

India is one of the fastest growing packaged juice drinks markets globally. Per capita consumption is still low at 1.4 litres in 2017 vs 10.1 litres in China, but the retail juice market has registered successive years of double-digit growth. 75% of urban consumers have drunk juice in the three months to May 2018.

Fresh juice is top challenger to packaged juice

The most popular type of juice in India is freshly squeezed, either made at home or at juice stalls and food service outlets. Fresh juice is also the biggest competitor to packaged juice in the country. 59% of juice drinkers have had fresh juice made at home vs 38% who have had ready-to-drink packaged juice.

Focus on fortification, freshness for health image

Packaged juice benefits from the health halo surrounding fresh juice. There is potential to leverage this attribute to improve the overall healthfulness of packaged juice. 36% of urban Indians see packaged juice as healthy. Brands can improve this opinion through nutrient fortification and through fresher variants, such as cold-pressed versions.

Expert analysis from a specialist in the field

Written by Ranjana Sundaresan, a leading analyst in the Food & Drink sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.

Packaged juice benefits tremendously from the health associations Indian consumers have with packaged juices. However, globally, the trend within packaged food and drink is moving to greater transparency in terms of ingredients and functional benefits. Juice manufacturers in India can no longer bask in the reflected glory of fresh juice – its main competition – and will need to prove what goes into their product, where the ingredients are from and what their health credentials are.
