The India wine market will witness a strong double digit CAGR of 17.41% during the forecast period between FY2023 and FY2030 led by growth drivers such as increasing disposable income, rapidly changing lifestyles among urban consumers particularly women, exposure to western cultures and growing number of foreign business and leisure tourists in India have contributed to the rising consumption of wine in India.

The wine market in India was valued at US$196.27 million in FY2022 and its value market size will increase above US$708.75 million in FY2030. Multiple factors will contribute to this growth including the country’s large Gen Z and Millennials population base of over 600 million that falls above the legal drinking age and major shift towards drinking culture especially in the urban areas. Drinking alcohol including wine is now increasingly considered as status symbol and the earlier social & cultural taboo around consumption of alcoholic beverages is disappearing. Among the total consumption of wine in terms of volume in India, imported wine accounted for more than 25 percent while the rest was produced locally.

Impact of COVID-19 on India Wine Market

The wine and allied alcoholic beverages market had witnessed a significant decline during mid-2020 and mid-2021 because of the strict social distancing norms and lockdown imposed by the Indian government to curb the spread of COVID-19 pandemic. The widespread shutdown of numerous wine retail sites including the HoReCa sector and restrictions on public transport adversely impacted the distribution of wine throughout the country. However, the biggest change witnessed during the pandemic was the consumer’s purchasing behaviour as they moved to online trade channels for buying wine. The industry is on a rapid recovery path in 2022 and early 2023 post relaxation of COVID-19 social distancing norms and opening of domestic and international tourism related sectors.
