The global smoothies market size was valued at USD 16.4 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 26.7 billion by 2031, registering a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period (2023-2031). Increasing demand for tropical flavors in soft drinks, introducing innovative ingredients such as erythritol in soft drinks, and the growing desire for convenience are the primary market drivers boosting smoothies market growth.
Smoothies are blended beverages produced by combining fruits, vegetables, liquids (such as water, milk, or yogurt), sweeteners (such as honey or agave syrup), and other flavorings or supplements (such as protein powder or superfoods). Smoothies' primary traits include their creamy texture and variety in ingredients and flavors. Today, one of the important elements driving the market's growth is the growing public awareness of the benefits of eating nutritious foods. Aside from that, there is a growth in demand for on-the-go food options due to people's hectic lifestyles and long working hours worldwide. This, combined with the expanding food and beverage (F&B) business, is fueling market growth.
Furthermore, leading manufacturers are offering gluten-free smoothies to control the signs and symptoms of celiac disease and other gluten-related medical disorders. These manufacturers are also working on more innovative items to increase sales, adding to market growth. Furthermore, the increased demand for protein-rich snacks and meals over carbohydrate-laden food products favors the smoothies market trend.
The global emphasis on health and well-being is a significant driving force in the smoothies market. Consumers are becoming more conscious of their food choices and are looking for healthful options. Smoothies, commonly created with fresh fruits and vegetables and other healthy components, are a nutritious and convenient way to get key nutrients into one's diet. Consumer polls show a high desire for healthier food and beverage options. According to a Nielsen survey, 48% of respondents actively seek out food and beverage products with health-related qualities. This includes things considered nutritional, such as smoothies made from whole foods.
Furthermore, McKinsey & Company reports that consumers spend more on wellness than ever. Wellness is now a USD 1.5 trillion worldwide sector, rising 5 to 10% annually. The usage of functional ingredients in smoothies, such as those known for their health advantages, has increased in the market. For example, adding turmeric for anti-inflammatory qualities or probiotics for digestive health has become a widespread practice. This trend will continue altering the industry as customers prioritize well-being and nutrition in their food and beverage choices.
The popularity of homemade smoothies puts the commercial smoothie sector under pressure. Many consumers prefer to prepare their smoothies at home, tailoring the ingredients to their tastes, which can compete with pre-packaged commercial smoothie sales. According to the NPD Group, 57% of Americans prefer to make their smoothies. This emphasizes the appeal of customized recipes and the cost-effectiveness of making smoothies without purchasing pre-made options.
Ingredients in homemade smoothies, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, yogurt, and protein powders, are selling well. This information represents consumers' willingness to invest in the ingredients required for DIY smoothies. In addition, there has been an increase in searches and activity on online platforms and social media for smoothie recipes and ideas for producing homemade smoothies. Consumers are actively seeking inspiration and direction to create their works of art.
Address environmental issues by using sustainable and eco-friendly smoothie packaging. Invest in recyclable or biodegradable containers to help reduce plastic waste and meet the needs of environmentally aware customers. According to a Nielsen poll, 81% of global respondents believe businesses should do more to aid the environment. Consumers choose brands that value sustainability; this environmental consciousness extends to packaging choices.
Many regions and countries are enacting single-use plastic rules and bans. This creates a regulatory need and a business opportunity for brands to move to more sustainable packaging materials. According to a poll conducted by Trivium Packaging, 74% of consumers are willing to pay more for environmentally friendly packaging. Brands that use sustainable packaging can attract and retain environmentally aware customers. Furthermore, companies that value sustainability are increasingly viewed as good corporate citizens. This strategy is consistent with global sustainability goals, such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. As a result, brands that pioneer sustainable packaging are likely to gain a competitive advantage and meet rising customer demand for ecologically responsible practices.

The global smoothies market is segmented based on type, distribution channel, and region.
Type is further segmented into Fruit-Based and dairy-based.
Fruit-based holds the major market share. Fruit-based smoothies are created with fruit as the primary ingredient. These smoothies are often made with a combination of fruits such as berries, bananas, mangoes, and citrus fruits. The fruits provide natural sweetness and a refreshing flavor. Fruit smoothies may contain extra components such as yogurt, ice, or fruit juice. In 2022, the fruit-based segment had the biggest share of more than 55%. Rising investment in the food and beverage industry to obtain fruit-based organic smoothies is expected to fuel market demand in the future years. Increased demand for vitamins and the need to curb sugar cravings will boost sales of fruit-based products throughout the predicted period.
Dairy-based smoothies have dairy products as a main ingredient, usually yogurt or milk. Dairy is frequently combined with fruits, vegetables, and other substances. The dairy component gives the smoothie creaminess and a little tangy flavor.
The segment can be further bifurcated by distribution channels into Supermarkets and Hypermarkets, Smoothie- Elated Bars, and Convenience Stores.
Supermarkets and Hypermarkets influenced the market growth. Supermarkets and hypermarkets are big retail establishments that sell various goods, including pre-packaged smoothies. Bottled or canned smoothies can be found in the chilled or beverage areas. These establishments make it easier for customers to do their usual supermarket shopping. In 2022, supermarkets and convenience stores accounted for more than half the global smoothies market revenue. This expansion can be ascribed to cold chain management and the availability of a diverse selection of items at a reasonable price. Supermarkets and convenience stores have a larger market share due to their long-established character and extensive availability worldwide.
Smoothie-related bars are businesses that specialize in smoothies and similar items. Customers can choose from various ingredients and customize their orders at these bars, which offer a menu of freshly produced smoothies.
