Region :Global | Report ID: FBI103278 | Status : Ongoing



The global water enhancer market is witnessing promising growth owing to the rising popularity of functional beverages that offer healthy hydration and affordable nutrition. Water enhancers are concentrated flavored formulations that are mostly fortified with nutrients and functional ingredients. These are designed to be mixed into plain water a few drops at a time. These mixers add sweetness, flavor, and nutrition to the water. The rising awareness of the negative health effects of consuming carbonated and sugary beverages is anticipated to boost the demand for water enhancers in the foreseeable years.

Water enhancers are becoming an increasingly common trend in retail on account of their increasing utilization in various segments such as sports drinks, flavored water, and energy drinks. The demand for water enhancers is increasing among modern-day consumers due to the growing popularity of on-the-go, convenient drinks. Enhancers eliminate a lot of the preparation involved in other beverage mixes such as powdered drinks and frozen concentrates. Water enhancer packs or bottles are easier to carry and can be stored for a longer period. The innovation in packaging technologies along with the expanding retail distribution is further driving the growth of the water enhancer market.

The trend of healthy hydration and nutritional drinking is primarily driving the growth of the water enhancer market. The growing awareness about the adverse health effects of carbonated beverages and sugary soft drinks is fuelling the demand for nutritional drinks that provide health benefits. Water enhancers provide on-the-go, affordable nutrition as they are convenient to carry. The growing popularity of customized drinks is also driving the growth of the water enhancer market. The rising trend of consuming plant-based, natural products is driving innovations by key players in the water enhancer category. For example, in October 2017, Weight Watchers launched all-natural water enhancers fortified with vitamin C, for health-conscious, on-the-go consumers.
