The constant transforming wellness industry
The situations in India are vastly changing now in term of health and wellness businesses. With more people from Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities accessing the internet, the current online wellness industry is close to a billion market, that is an achievement. With the speedy invasion of digitalization and technologies in the current time, the industry is predicted to evolve more, offering new and unique quality offerings to the consumers.
Sushil Khaitan says, “The general health and wellness industry is closely a 3 billion dollar market carrying huge potentials for both the investors and consumers. This is expected to grow by 6.5 billion dollars by the end of 2022. The contributions from the Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities are contributing as a major growth factor for this segment.”
Factors that are causing the industry to ‘Boom’
Various growth factors are responsible for the booming of this industry. One of the factors is ‘Awareness’ that has caused the people to step out of their comfort level, exercising and hitting the gyms for a healthy body. This has also lead to the choices of foods that are nutritionally rich, containing an appropriate amount of minerals and vitamins for a better lifestyle.
Yoga, on the other hand, has been a major driving factor for the Indian health and wellness industry. Being there in the culture since decades, the yoga culture witnessed a sudden rise after it was made popular by our Prime Minister.
“It’s a multi-channel approach that is causing hundreds of people hitting to gyms or other health-concerned brands for an enhanced, better, and healthier lifestyle. People are also becoming very conscious about the foods they intake, offering opportunities for brands like us to cater accordingly with nutritional and healthy products,” shares Khaitan.
