India Bottled Water Market: Global Industry Analysis And Forecast (2022-2029)

Bottled water market is a symbol of a new lifestyle and health-consciousness rising in India. While a substantial portion of the population struggles to get safe drinking water, a new generation, particularly in metropolitan areas, is becoming accustomed to paying high costs for bottled water. Over the last five years, the bottle water market has grown by 40-45 percent. Higher disposable income, increasing taste for hygiene, improved price, easier availability of packaged drinking water, and a lack of safe drinking water are driving demand for bottled water. While India is among the top ten bottled water users in the world, its per capita bottled water consumption is estimated to be five litres per year, which is far lower than the global average of 24 litres. Bottled water is becoming one of India's fastest growing industries.
