Even though India is not the largest consumer of alcohol products in the world, but per capita consumption of alcohol in India more than doubled from 2005 to 2016. Alcohol consumption in India was 5.4 billion liters in 2016. According to a report by WHO, alcohol consumption has increased from 2.4 liters in 2005 to 5.7 liters in 2016, of which 4.2 liters are consumed by men and 1.5 liters by women.

Although consumption in the country is affected by bans in various states, most breweries and distilleries export their product and make profits from them. The sector has seen strong growth and investing in these stocks can give you high returns.
