Soft drinks categories recorded a low growth in Q1-16 mainly driven by packaged water and bulk/HOD water. The first quarter of the year remained a weak period for beer consumption as it has been more difficult for brewers to gain profits as competition grows fiercer. In 2016 complicated international and domestic economic environments will continue to affect the Chinese commercial beverage industry. Driven by high profit margins leading dairy manufacturers continued their activities in high-end dairy drink products.

Key Findings:
