Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Functional Beverages Market

The COVID-19 pandemic brought unprecedented challenges across many sectors, such as the food & beverages, and nutraceuticals industries. Lockdowns, border restrictions, travel restrictions, manufacturing units’ shutdown, and other safety protocols imposed by governments negatively impacted the operations of manufacturing companies. Due to the raw material shortage, many functional beverages manufacturers suffered from short-term financial losses. There was a shortfall in the product supply due to supply chain disruptions and labor shortages. All these factors negatively impacted the functional beverages market. However, as the concerns related to health and fitness increased due to the outbreak, the demand for functional beverages increased dramatically as functional beverages offer specific health benefits that are beyond the regular daily intake of nutrients, such as improved bone health, cholesterol management, improved heart health, and other benefits associated with eye health and vision. Further, the manufacturers are increasing their production due to ease in the restrictions imposed by the government, thereby boosting the functional beverages market growth.
