Future Market Growth Factors:

Today’s consumer is largely inclined towards convenience, with a major part of their purchases including grab-and-go items instead of traditional bulk goods. This has driven the manufacturers to focus on developing shelf-stable drinks with environment-friendly packaging made of renewable and sustainable materials. Carbonated soft drinks are now developed in a way that caters to the rising health consciousness among consumers, with major focus on innovations with low-calorie, low-sugar and natural ingredients. As a result, stevia sweeteners are witnessing higher demand than traditional sweeteners and are emerging as the latest trends in the global market.            

The preference for on-the-go soft drinks is not expected to slow down anytime in the near future, which is giving way to vibrant and creative packaging styles to attract the attention of a higher number of consumers. Time pressed consumers are increasingly opting for products that help them maintain their active lifestyles and as a result, the convenience trends are anticipated to bolster the sales of ready-to-drink beverages such as carbonated soft drinks.

Significant popularity of online food delivery and e-commerce platforms due to benefits including discounts and cash-on-delivery features will offer attractive opportunities to the manufacturers aiming to reach out to a higher number of consumers.
