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.
The healthcare expenditures of people across the world have increased significantly owing rising concerns regarding health and growing prevalence of chronic diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. According to the US Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), in 2020, health spending accounted for 19.7% of the GDP of the country. In addition, the healthcare spending in the US increased by 9.7% in 2020, totaling US$ 4.1 trillion. As people are becoming health conscious, they are increasingly spending on foods and beverages that help them stay healthy. Thus, the increasing healthcare spending is projected to offer notable growth opportunities for the functional beverages market players in the coming years.
Based on product type, the functional beverages market is segmented into energy drinks, sports drinks, fortified juices, functional water, and others. The energy drinks segment is held the largest market share in 2020. Along with boosting energy levels of the body, energy drinks help improve mental and physical performance of consumers. These drinks are popular among teenagers and young adults. However, the risk associated with energy drink consumption related to the products' caffeine and sugar content is likely to restrain the market growth for this segment. Therefore, manufacturers are launching decaffeinated, and low-calorie energy drinks to cater to the changing requirements of consumers.
Based on distribution channel, the functional beverages market is segmented into supermarkets & hypermarkets, convenience stores, online retail, and others. The convenience stores segment accounted for the largest market share in 2020, while the online retail segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
