Global Packaged Water Report 2015 - New Report Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Dec 07 2015

Packaged water volumes just failed to overtake carbonates as the leading global beverage in 2014, with the category registering an increase of 7%. The main five countries in this category - China, USA, Germany, Italy and India - took a share of almost 50% of global volumes. Despite a slowdown in growth from the main China market, Asia increased its share of packaged water to almost 35%, while West Europe rebounded from its losses in 2013 to record annual growth of almost 2% in 2014. East Europe also witnessed a 2% expansion, mostly driven by increasing interest in healthy living in Turkey and Poland.

Key Findings

* Emerging markets are continuing to make strong progress in the global packaged water category, with India, Indonesia, Nigeria and Turkey performing particularly well.
* Strong economic growth and fierce competition between producers is helping to push volumes higher, while a lack of safe drinking water in these countries also drives consumers towards this category
* Carbonated water has seen a rather mixed performance during the year. While volumes edged forwards on a global basis, the main European markets continued to suffer losses. West Europe, in particular, drove the decline, with German and Italian consumers shifting their preferences to low-carbonated products. However, growth for carbonated water in Asia and North America somewhat compensated for these losses, mostly thanks to China, Japan and the USA
* PET continued as the dominant pack material in 2014, although environmental concerns have led some consumers to adopt light-weighting of PET in some markets. Eco-packaging is gaining increasing attention with thinner PET bottles benefitting from lower petroleum use in production and easier disposal
