Sweets refer to desserts that are made from different ingredients, such as, milk derivatives, besan, cereal and pulses, wheat flour, dry fruits, etc. These sweets are packaged into boxes, plastic containers and tin cans depending on their physical forms and textures. In India, some of the common packaged sweets include rasgulla, gulab jamun, barfi, peda, soan papdi, ladoo, cham cham, rajbhog, etc. Packaged sweets have higher shelf-life and hence, can be transported over longer distances. Moreover, these products are certified by government organizations, specifically FSSAI, which ensures the high quality of the packaged product.
In India, the expanding food packaging sector, along with the increasing consumer consciousness towards food hygiene and cleanliness, is primarily driving the packaged sweets market. Furthermore, the rising working women population and their hectic work schedules have led to the shifting preferences from traditional or home-cooked sweets towards packaged, ready-to-serve variants. Apart from this, the prevalent trend of gifting sweets as a part of Indian culture during several social and cultural gatherings, such as weddings, festivals, celebrations, etc., is acting as a significant growth-inducing factor. Additionally, the introduction of numerous stringent norms for food labeling and maintaining product safety during preparation and packaging of sweets, is also propelling the market growth in India. Besides this, the emergence of luxurious sweet brands in India that focus on delivering numerous variants ranging from traditional mithais to organic, vegan, and lactose-free sweets, is positively influencing the market growth. With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a considerable shift from open and loose sweets towards packaged variants to mitigate the risk of infection. Moreover, continuous advancements in the packaging technologies, including biodegradable packaging, nanofabrication, and flexible packaging, for sweets are expected to further drive the India packaged sweets market in the coming years.
