FARMINGTON, Conn., March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Despite their overwhelming popularity, carbonated soft drink consumption in the U.S. is slowly giving way to water drinking, particularly bottled water. Americans are gulping an average of 44 gallons of soda per a year, representing a 17 percent drop from peak soda consumption averages in 1998. Over the same period, the average amount of water people drink has increased 38 percent to about 58 gallons a year. Paralleling this trend, bottled water consumption has nearly doubled to 21 gallons a year.
While consumer beverage consumption behavior in the U.S. continues to shift mainly due to health concerns, will soft drink makers and soda companies be impacted negatively? Many soda producers also manufacture and distribute bottled water, so it's a question of which companies will recognize new consumption trends and adapt faster than competitors.
According to a new report, "The Future of the US Non-Alcoholic Drinks Packaging to 2017" by Canadean, as consumers' product demands evolve, the dynamics between different packaging types also evolve - favoring some packaging types and formats and leaving others increasingly out of line with demand patterns. Water is already being packaged in new soft drink-like packaging to drive customers to buy more.
Packaging companies require a detailed understanding of packaging consumption by individual product categories in order to align their sales and marketing efforts with the latest trends in the market. This report clarifies in detail, by product category, where the growth opportunities are in packaging materials and types to enable effective market planning.
