Overview of the global soft drinks market

Technavios research analyst predicts the global soft drinks market to grow steadily at a rate of 7% during the forecast period. The increase in the sale of premium-priced products such as RTD tea and coffee and functional drinks are the primary drivers of the growth of this market. The innovative marketing strategies being introduced by vendors is also driving the market growth. For instance, during April 2015, PepsiCo entered into a marketing partnership with NBA, making it the official partner of the NBA, Womens National Basketball Association, NBA Development League, and USA Basketball.

The stringent government regulations regarding the production and sale of soft drinks are expected to pose challenges to the market growth during the forecast period. For instance, during 2014, Mexico imposed additional taxes on the sale of soft drinks, to reduce its consumption within the country.

The Americas accounted for 39% of the market share during 2014 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period. The introduction of a soda tax in some of the countries in this region has had an adverse impact on the growth of sugary drinks.
