Report Overview

The global water enhancer market size was valued at USD 2.51 billion in 2021 and is expected to register a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.8% from 2022 to 2030. The rising demand for nutritious water intake across the globe due to the health benefits coupled with increasing adoption of a healthy diet is one of the major factors propelling the industry growth. The enhancer makes water nutritious and flavored as it contains vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, and other healthy ingredients. Furthermore, product adoption is widely increasing in developed economies owing to the growing awareness about following a healthy lifestyle. On the other hand, the availability of various harmful chemical additives in the flavored water enhancer is projected to restrain the growth during the forecast period.

The product is available in a variety of flavors, such as black cherry, berry, lemonade, orange, and others, that may contain harmful colors and artificial flavors that can increase the risk of various allergic reactions. This hinders product adoption. However, a significant number of product launches, such as new flavors coupled with healthy nutrition-based water enhancers, by manufacturers is projected to provide several growth opportunities for the industry. The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the growth of the industry due to the disruption in the supply chain, import and export, and closure of retail stores across the globe.

The shutdown of the supermarkets, hypermarkets, and convenience stores further decreased the sales through these distribution channels, which impacted the industry growth during the pandemic. As per the International Center data, the import of flavored water across the globe decreased to around 2.7% in 2020 and then further increased to around 13% in 2021. In addition, rising awareness about following a healthy lifestyle further contributes to the industry growth. Major countries, such as the U.S., U.K., Australia, and Canada, are contributing significantly to the industry growth.

In addition, rising health concerns across the globe further support the adoption of healthy beverage drink mixes products including water enhancers, which further propels the industry growth. Moreover, the growing trend of nutritious and energy-based water consumption among celebrities and athletes across the globe is projected to provide several growth opportunities. The introduction of functional water enhancers will also contribute to industry growth. For instance, in 2020, Zhou Nutrition announced the addition of the business segment including the water enhancers in 6 new flavors for various wellness requirements, such as stress management, hair & skin health, and others.

The company launched the Hairfluence water enhancer in the watermelon flavor containing unique herbal and biotin that supports the growth of healthy and strong hairs. The other water enhancer products introduced by the company include Glowfluence, Calm Now, Energy + Focus water enhancer, collagen peptides, and Neuro-Peak. Furthermore, significant growth in the consumption of healthy and flavored water across emerging economies, such as India, China, and others, is projected to provide ample growth opportunities to the industry. The rising concerns regarding obesity due to unhealthy lifestyle in these countries is also expected to increase the adoption of nutritional water enhancers during the forecast period.

Form Insights

On the basis of forms, the global industry is categorized into liquid and powder forms. Among these, the liquid water enhancer segment held the largest revenue share of more than 65.8% in 2021.

The long shelf life of powder-based water enhancers is also one of the major factors propelling its demand. In addition, the rising demand for nutritional powder products in the gym-going population further encourages the demand for powdered water enhancers, thereby contributing to the segment growth.

Distribution Channel Insights

On the basis of distribution channels, the global industry is categorized into offline and online. Among these, the offline segment held the largest share of 80% in 2021. Offline distribution channel involves product sales through convenience stores, specialty stores, hypermarkets, and supermarkets. Owing to the easy access and availability, consumers prefer shopping from brick-and-mortar grocers.

Along with that, the offline stores provide a wide range of preferences and product details through scanning before any purchase, thereby contributing to the segment growth.

The online distribution channel segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR from 2022 to 2030 owing to the increasing penetration of smartphones as a result of the extensive usage of the internet coupled with online shopping apps and websites. Moreover, various e-commerce companies, such as Amazon and JD.com, are partnering with water enhancer products manufacturers and retail stores to provide grocery items through their online channels. Therefore, the rising number of partnerships between e-commerce and retail stores creates significant growth in online sales across the globe. Along with that, various major companies, such as The Kraft Heinz Company, The Coca-Cola Company, and others, started their online platforms, which also support the segment growth.
