In the present scenario, the change in lifestyle, increasing awareness about health, and the rise in disposable incomes has influenced a large population of the country to move to luxury products such as dietary supplements, which has created a high demand for effervescent products. The effervescent products easily dissolve in water and release carbon dioxide by creating bubbles and fizz which appeals to a consumer’s senses. The effervescent products include pharmaceuticals, dietary supplements, food, cleansers, and personal care goods which are available in the form of tablets and powder. These tablets absorb significantly faster than ordinary tablets and hence provide better results.

The effervescent products market based on its application is segmented into dental products, functional food, and pharmaceuticals. Among these, the pharmaceutical segment is estimated to have the largest market share during the forecast period. The growing pharmaceutical industry along with the benefits of effervescent products are driving the market growth. For the patients who don’t like tablets/ capsules and need a high dose of active ingredients, the manufacturers are also providing powder form. The companies are also experimenting with novel drugs by including ingredients that tangibly impact their customer’s health and lifestyle. They have also expanded their market through the launch of new products or through innovation in an existing product like adding new flavors and collaborations.

The effervescent tablets are available in the form of various supplements like vitamins, minerals, potassium, and others. Around 20% of people across the globe have a deficiency of potassium in their blood. This creates a high demand for potassium supplements as they are used to treat low amounts of potassium in the blood. NOW Foods, Emergen-C, Solaray Potassium are some of the companies involved in manufacturing of potassium supplements. This creates large business opportunities in the pharmaceutical industry as one can enter into the market either by directly supplying products to customers or as a vendor by supplying capsule covers to pharmaceuticals. Besides this, the pharmaceutical industry faces a lot of competition and there are very strict rules and regulation which also vary globally across the country. The development of new products takes a lot of time and high investments. Also getting the new product approved from respective drug authorities takes time which leads to high debt pressure on the company.
