The Alcohol Industry of India is the third-largest in the world valued at US$ 35 billion. India is the largest consumer of Whiskey in the world and wine is becoming extremely popular among women in India. Vodka demand in the country grew by 22.8%. It is estimated that alcohol consumption in India will touch 16.8 billion liters by the year 2022.
The alcohol industry is expected to reach US$ 41 billion by 2022. This excellent growth can mainly be attributed to the growing demand for alcoholic beverages among the youth of the country and rising of the disposable income. The majority of alcohol volume in India is consumed by people of age 18 to 40.
During the initial stage of the COVID-19 pandemic, the alcohol industry experienced a huge downfall. The sale of alcoholic beverages was stopped for about 40 days. Moreover, the introduction of COVID cesson liquor in some states increased the prices of alcohol. Big players of the industry with better cash liquidity can sustain these tough times.
Alcoholic beverages are not still included in the Goods and Services Tax (GST). This is affecting the industry negatively as the materials imported attract excise duty and VAT. Additionally, the trend of various State Governments shows that they do not allow free flow of Beer and Whiskymanufactured outside the States by putting restrictions and imposing exorbitant import fees as a result the liquor industry was established outside the State cannot compete with the importing State. Moreover, due to unabated rise in oil prices, the logistic issues and different regulations applicable in different states with the result that sending the goods from one corner of the country to the other has become a costly affair and is un-remunerative and economically unviable. Therefore, to overcome these obstacles most of the leaders in the liquor Industryhave opted for collaboration, technical know-how, and bottling arrangements in various other States.
