The carbonated soft drink industry is expected to generate worldwide revenue in excess of $209 billion in 2014, according to research from MarketLine.

Coca-Cola is the number one company operating in the global carbonated soft drink market, accounting for more than 42% of the overall market.

 

 

Trends and Challenges

 

The global carbonated soft drink market has been facing difficulty due to reduced consumer spending brought on by the economic recession, and a general fall in demand for carbonated beverages due to declining popularity, reports Just Drinks. With increasing consumer awareness regarding health issues, carbonated drinks are being forced to compete with healthier options on the market, like fruit and vegetable juices. Other factors affecting market growth include packaging, environment, produce innovation, flavor and changing lifestyles.

  • China’s carbonated soft drink market was worth more than $5.5 billion in 2009, having recorded close to 9% yearly growth for the four preceding years, reports Datamonitor.

Market Outlook

 

The global carbonated soft drink market is increasingly competitive, forcing companies to set themselves apart through product innovation. Marketing and product innovation will both prove important moving forward as companies seek to hold on to consumers eager to follow a trend towards healthier beverage choices. Many soft drinks are losing popularity due to their flavoring, additive and sugar content.

 

To appeal to health-conscious consumers, many soft drinks companies will turn to expanding their product lines to include healthier or diet versions of their drinks. Companies may also set about reducing the sugar content of their drinks and highlighting the benefits of their drinks in their marketing approach.
