The wine industry has been enjoying a renaissance of late.

From sparkling wines to bubbly and ginseng, the industry is getting ready to take a step forward.

Here is what you need to know about the industry.

1.

Wine is now a global industry The industry’s fortunes have risen sharply in recent years, especially in China and India, but the US still remains the largest producer.

Wine, the beverage of choice for millions of consumers worldwide, is now in the ascendency in the US, accounting for $7.3 billion of the country’s total wine sales in 2015.

The US has become the world’s biggest consumer of wine, with sales surging to $3.4 billion in 2015, up from $2.4 bn in 2006.

2.

The wine business is the second largest industry in the world Wine is the most important sector of the global economy, accounting $3 trillion in annual economic output and generating $10 trillion of global GDP.

It also accounts for about 15% of the world total.

3.

India is the world leader in wine sales The country’s wine production, which was worth $1.8 billion in 2014, rose to $1 billion in 2016.

India now ranks third in the global wine market, after the US and France, with annual production of 2.7 million metric tonnes (mt) of wine.

India’s wine exports are the fourth-highest in the region, after China, Italy and Germany.

4.

The global wine industry is heavily influenced by foreign investments The US is the biggest market for wine, accounting more than $3 billion in annual wine sales, according to data compiled by Euromonitor International.

The European Union and the European Union member states account for more than 90% of global wine sales.

In the past few years, a number of large investors, including Chinese and Japanese, have stepped in to buy up stakes in the sector, leading to a rise in the number of wine producers.

5.

The industry is highly regulated, but it is still growing The US wine industry was one of the first to take full advantage of the emerging internet and social media, and has a highly-regulated and compliant system.

According to Euromonitors, in 2015 the number two largest wine producer, DuPont, and the fourth largest wine maker, Chateau Lafite, invested $6.2 billion in the industry, the second-highest total investment in the United States in the last decade.

The market is also closely monitored by regulators around the world, which is why there is so much focus on ensuring that wine is made in a responsible way.

6.

The business is growing in India A number of major wine producers have set up their own operations in India, such as the Tata Group, Chaiwala Group, the Triton Group, and The Winery Group.

Other major players are also setting up their operations in the country.

7.

India has a vibrant wine industry but a low level of foreign investment India’s domestic wine market is among the largest in the globe, with some analysts estimating the domestic market could be worth as much as $50 billion.

It is not the largest wine market in the developing world, but has a relatively high level of investment in its wine industry, with more than 50 international and domestic wine brands producing in the market.

8.

The Indian wine industry can be a difficult industry to scale The Indian Wine Industry is a small industry that is heavily dependent on foreign investments and is currently underdeveloped.

The country has been a pioneer in the development of a small wine industry in recent times, with the first small winery being established in 2001, followed by the establishment of the Wine Cellar Project in 2006 and the Indian Wine Institute in 2012.

Despite the relatively small scale of the industry in India and the country having a large number of wineries, it is a complex, challenging, and expensive industry to enter.

9.

Indian wine is expensive In India, the cost of producing a bottle of wine can reach up to $5,000.

For small wineries in the city, the price of a bottle can reach $200,000 or more.

10.

There are still some major barriers to entry in India The global industry is still in its early stages, and is still dominated by a small number of companies, with a limited number of people actively engaged in the wine business.

Some barriers include: lack of international connections, limited access to capital, lack of financial literacy, and limited marketing experience.

The number of foreign direct investment (FDI) in India has increased in recent decades, from less than 1% of investments in 2004 to more than 8% in 2015 and 9% in 2016, according a report by Euromoney.

However, there are still significant barriers to the entry of new businesses into the Indian wine market.

11.

There is a lack of transparency and accountability in India In India’s laws, the market is largely unregulated.
