Sula Vineyards IPO Review – Industry Overview

India is one of the fastest-growing alcoholic beverage markets in the world, growing from a small base of 1.3 liters per capita of recorded consumption in 2005 to 2.7 liters in 2010.

However, India’s per capita consumption of wine is less than 100 ml. The contribution of wine to overall alcohol consumption in India is less than 1% against the world average of close to 13%.

Despite this, the Indian wine industry is growing at a much quicker pace at 18.3% by value between FY 2014 to FY 2019. Further, it is projected to grow to 3.4 million cases, from the current 2 million cases, by FY 2025 with a CAGR of more than 14% in volume.

Indian alco-beverage market is the third largest market in the world after China and the USA by volume in terms of the actual alcohol content of alco-beverages in CY 2020. It is further projected to grow at 11% per annum in value terms for the period between 2021 to 2025.
