Consumer demand for convenient and healthy on-the-go snack options has by far been the primary attribute for sales of energy bars in the country. Increasing health-consciousness, active lifestyles, and awareness about the benefits of consumption of smaller meals are further leading to the increased consumption of snacks, which is expected to drive the demand for energy bars. Increasing sports participation and the increasing gym-going population are expected to further propel the growth of energy bars. However, energy bars in India are perceived to be high-priced in comparison with regular snack bars. This has provided an opportunity for Indian players such as Patanjali to come up with energy bars that are offered at a lower price.
