Product Insights

The solutions segment dominated the market with a revenue share of over 35.0% in 2020. Owing to the increasing consumer preference for herbal and plant-based products, players operating in the market are using ingredients, such as ginseng, turmeric, and milk thistle, to manufacture hangover cure products. Moreover, with the growing awareness regarding the mild effects associated with the consumption of allopathic products, more consumers, especially millennials, are shifting toward traditional medicines, resulting in the increased demand for herbal solutions.

The robust demand for herbal hangover cure solutions is supported by numerous product launches, which is expected to favor the segment growth. For instance, in 2019, Morning Fresh launched a 100% natural detox drink in Hyderabad, India, which helps cures hangovers and supports liver functions. The active ingredient in the product aids liver health and offers hydration while its antioxidant properties help eliminate toxins to ensure effective functioning of the body.
