The Indian Wine Market: What Consumers Drink and Why?
This report provides the results for the Wines market in India from Canadean’s unique, highly detailed study of consumers’ Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) consumption habits, and forms part of an overall series covering all CPG product markets. Its coverage includes, but is not limited to, consumption behaviors, the extent to which consumer trends influence their consumption, the value of the market these trends influence, and brand and private label choices as well as organized retailer choices. Much of this information can also be analyzed by specific consumer groups, providing hard and fast data on consumers and markets at the product category level.
Introduction and Landscape
Why was the report written?
Marketers in the Wines market face a major challenge. Understanding market size and segmentation is valuable, but the key to effective targeting is knowing just how valuable specific consumer groups are, and being able to quantify the impact of consumer trends. This data report solves these problems by providing survey-based data on consumer trends and consumer groups, and market data that shows the exact size of consumer groups, how much of the Wines market they account for, and which consumer trends drive their behavior.
What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
As consumer confidence increases proportionally to economic recovery, consumer trends will be directly affected. Since the global financial crisis of 2008–2009 the organized retail market has been characterized by an increase in the amount of discounted and own-brand products. Wines are not considered essential items and therefore consumption patterns have been negatively affected. As economic and market recovery continues over 2012, consumption patterns will record a positive trend in both the Medium and Heavy frequency bands and the amount of Non-users should decrease.
What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
Consumers’ uptake of products and the influence of consumer trends are fundamental causes of change in markets – making knowing what these trends are and the extent of their influence crucial. The survey-based data provided in this report examines over 20 consumer trends that affect the market and examines the share of consumption across 26 consumer groups. This data provides a detailed insight into exactly who the consumer is and just how much impact the latest consumer trends are having.

Key Market Issues
The Better Off and Hard Pressed income groups account for the majority of the Indian Wine market due to their large sizes. This highlights the market potential to provide an aspirational product and serve as an affordable luxury.
Fortified Wine and Sparkling Wine are not very popular options among Indian Wine consumers. The market share is zero for all age groups. India’s undeveloped Wine market has a lot of scope for these Wine products, which can accumulate enough shares with proper branding of products in the urban population.
Still Wine has a significant market share in the overall Wine market in India in terms of both value and volume. This is the biggest product segment in the Wine market. Consumption frequency analysis reveals that the usage pattern remains largely unchanged across all age groups, where most consumption falls in the Light use category, followed by Medium users.
Changing age structures was identified as the most important trend driving consumers’ choices of Wine. This is evidence that India’s growing young population is of paramount importance as producers compete to gain loyal consumers in these large demographic groups.
Even though the majority of the Indian population resides in the rural areas, almost the entire Wine market comprises consumers in the urban dwellers. This is primarily due to two key factors: the differences in disposable income, and the exposure to western culture.
Private label in Still Wine accounts for a significant penetration of the market, evidence of brands’ underinvestment in India, and the power of the country’s growing organized retail chains.
