These beverages are formulated to provide additional health benefits beyond basic hydration. Functional beverages often contain added vitamins, minerals, or other ingredients that are believed to promote health and well-being. The demand for functional beverages has been driven by consumers' desire to lead healthier lifestyles and address specific health concerns. Another trend in the market is the increasing popularity of premium non-alcoholic drinks. Consumers are willing to pay a premium price for high-quality, innovative, and unique non-alcoholic beverages. This trend can be attributed to the growing interest in craft beverages and the desire for a more sophisticated drinking experience. Premium non-alcoholic drinks often feature unique flavors, natural ingredients, and attractive packaging, which appeal to consumers looking for a more elevated beverage option.
