Global Bottled Water Market to Reach $183.7 Billion by 2026

Quality and taste are the two parameters that differentiate bottled water from tap water. The major difference between the two is that tap water contains chlorine, which is added to prevent water from recontamination, as it moves out through pipes for domestic supply. Bottled waters, spring water in particular, contain approved levels of chloride, nitrate, chloride, sodium and sulfate. Most of the bottled water is sourced from protected reservoirs such as artesian wells, springs, and drilled wells. Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Bottled Water estimated at US$135.8 Billion in the year 2020, is projected to reach a revised size of US$1863.7 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 6.2% over the analysis period. Spring Water, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to grow at a 7.5% CAGR to reach US$37.7 Billion by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, growth in the Purified Water segment is readjusted to a revised 5.9% CAGR for the next 7-year period. This segment currently accounts for a 31.7% share of the global Bottled Water market.

The U.S. Market is Estimated at $36.6 Billion in 2021, While China is Forecast to Reach $38.3 Billion by 2026

Within Europe, Germany is forecast to grow at approximately 3.4% CAGR while Rest of European market (as defined in the study) will reach US$44.7 Billion by the end of the analysis period.

In fact contaminated water is identified as one of the leading causes of a number of waterborne diseases such as typhoid, malaria, food poisoning and diarrhea among others.

The portable and convenient nature of bottled water is a major contributor to the growing sales of bottled water, as packaged bottles in convenient packages allow consumers to carry water while on-the-go. In the coming years, rapidly changing consumer lifestyles, shortage of time, and the growing need for convenient and safety sources of drinking water will continue to spur sales of bottled water.
