Increasing consumer inclination towards non-dairy plant-based beverages is resulting from the growing prevalence of lactose intolerance among people and various food-allergies associated with dairy products. Thus, plant-based beverage manufacturers are offering many non-dairy beverages in different flavors and taste to fulfill the consumer demand for a tasty, healthy, and nutritious drink. The market for plant-based beverages also includes a contribution from RTD drinks, including tea and coffee, and plant-based fruit and vegetable juices.

Organic plant-based beverages are anticipated to overtake conventional plant-based beverages, with an expected CAGR of 7.2% by 2028, owing to the increasing awareness of consumers in developed regions about the quality and health benefits of organic food products, and increasing per capita disposable income of consumers.
