Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Functional Beverages Market

The food & beverage industries across different regions suffered from severe disruption due to lockdowns, travel bans, border restrictions, manufacturing unit shutdowns, among other adversities, after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in shortages in raw materials and disturbances in supply chains. The functional beverages market also faced similar difficulties as manufacturers were not permitted to operate at full capacity. However, as the consumers have become health-conscious during the pandemic, they are preferring healthy and nutritious foods and beverages. Moreover, the demand for immunity-boosting beverages also surged during the first quarter of 2020. With the relaxation of government restrictions in late 2020, manufacturers managed to overcome the demand and supply gap, which boosted their growth pace.  Therefore, the COVID-19 pandemic had a mixed impact on the functional beverages market.
