Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/sv9mpq/global_bottled) has announced the addition of the "Global Bottled Water Industry" report to their offering.
The global bottled industry is one of the fastest expanding industries in today's time. World bottled water market is expected to reach $70 billion by 2017 and will be stimulated by rising population, consumer spending patterns, lifestyle trends and growing levels of health consciousness, among others. Global bottled water market is dominated by Europe and United States, which together account for over 50% of the market value. Several bottled water companies are looking to enter developing markets with immense growth potential such as Asia and Middle East. China is one such market where sales of bottled water are rapidly increasing. Companies are trying to capitalize on weather changes such as summer and increase in health consciousness amongst consumers. The bottled water industry is expected to witness greater participation from soft drink and dairy processing companies, fostered by economies offered by existing international distribution network, and processing equipment.
Bottled water will continue to fare well in the global beverage marketplace as a healthy alternative to carbonated soft drinks. Gains in the bottled water market will also come from flavored varieties and convenient packaged formats, especially single-serve packs. Sparkling water market is dominated by Europe, which accounts for more than 75% of the world market.
Danone SA, Nestle SA, PepsiCo and The Coca-Cola Company are the four corporate goliaths in the industry. The major challenge for most companies is product innovation and differentiation as water is still just water. Containers are an important part of bottled water, as they constitute nearly 50% of cost. Even look, weight and price of the product are as significant as the water itself.
