The demand for bottled water has been growing during the last decade, owing to health and wellness concerns. Beverage companies are improving their packaging due to environmental concerns. Coca-Cola has reduced its cap size in bottles that are 24 ounces or smaller in order to reduce the plastic intake by the company. The bottled water industry was valued at USD 185 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach USD 330 billion by 2021, growing at an 8.5% CAGR during the forecast period 2016-2021.
The bottled water industry is driven by health concerns regarding drinking water. Changing lifestyles, preference for vitamin and minerals rich drinking water, and ease of handling and portability of bottled water are some of the factors driving the market. However, there are a few restraints slowing down the pace of the industry, such as the environmental pollution through plastic bottles and lack of awareness regarding the health issues associated with low-cost tap water. The major opportunities identified for the bottled water industry are innovative products with minimum environmental and health hazards and penetration in developing markets.
The bottled water market can be segmented by product types, distribution channel, and geography. By product type, the bottled water market is sub-segmented into still water, carbonated water, flavored water, and functional water. Still water is the largest sub-segment of bottled water, accounting for more than 65% of the demand, followed by carbonated water. Product innovation in terms of flavor and packaging has triggered the flavored water demand. According to distribution channel types, this market can be segmented into hypermarkets, supermarkets, convenience stores, departmental stores, specialty stores, and online purchases.
Asia-Pacific is the largest market in terms of revenue and total consumption, accounting for 33% market share. It is also the fastest growing market for bottled water, covering more than one-thirds of the market demand, supported by the large population, high demand, untapped market and demography, and rapid urbanization. As a result, there is business expansion by almost all the big players in the market. Led by China and India, Asia-Pacific is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Europe is the second largest market, with 28% market share. Other regions like North America, South America, and Africa have a significant share of the bottled water market. North America is a saturated market with steady demand and the highest per capita water consumption currently.
The bottled water market is fragmented due to the presence of a large number of private label brands and local bottlers. More than 60% of the global market is covered by regional and national level players. The competition is reported to be huge mostly in North America and Europe, where the markets are saturated with slow growth and steady demand. The growing demand for thirst crunching products, health and hygienic concerns, multiple market distribution channels, and social acceptance of bottled water are expected to help the market grow at a good pace. Multiple product launches, innovative product packaging, healthy and hygienic items, huge marketing & promotional activities, and mergers & acquisitions with smaller level players have been strong business strategies for market growth in the region.
