The market for non-alcoholic beverages holds more than 50% share in the global beverage market with a growing trend for the past several years. The market offers a holistic view to the investors within the sector, owing to the rising popularity of refreshment drinks and increasing civilization among human societies.

COVID-19 Pandemic Impacted the Consumption Pattern of Beverage Products

The global non-alcoholic beverages market is facing an abrupt downfall in the sales and consumption of soft drinks due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic worldwide. According to the World Trade Organization, the overall trade scenario across the world will get impacted by approx. 15-30% for a certain period.

The emergence of Nutritious Beverages will Trigger the Market Growth

The rising consumer preferences towards healthy beverages enriched with nutrients have necessitated manufacturers to introduce several nutritious products in the market. Consumers, especially millennials are becoming more experimental and willing to try new and healthier alternatives to traditional soft drinks. The demand is prompting the manufacturers to re-examine their product formulation and has impacted the emerging concepts in manufacturing by highlighting the evolving taste of millennial consumers and their kids across the world. According to the Key National Health and Nutrition Organizations 2019, adequate intake of healthy beverages in early childhood is an important factor required to meet the nutritional needs of millennials and young children to support their healthy development. Thus, such introduction of new beverages in the global market place will aid in the expansion of the market during the forecast period.


Adoption of Innovative Beverages to Support Human Hydration will Augment Growth

Non-alcoholic beverages not only offer the basic refreshment function but are also used as mood enhancements, fortified drinks, and satisfaction of sweet indulgences in the daily hectic schedule of consumers. The regular intake of these products helps the human body to stay hydrated and are more popular among consumers with a busy lifestyle. Convenience drinks such as canned CSD, and Ready-to-drink (RTD) coffee / tea have become a mainstream trend that offers the ‘grab-and-go’ convenience and entices consumers to buy them from the market. According to the Food Export Association 2019, an approximate of 24% growth rate was witnessed in the sales of RTD tea and coffee in 2019 over the past four years. Thus, the rising consumer dependency on soft drinks and other innovative products will augment the growth of the market in the coming years.

Evolution of e-Commerce Platforms to Attract Higher Revenues

Technological developments and virtual shopping trends are expected to have a huge impact on the beverages sector, owing to the rise in dependency of consumers on the internet and e-commerce. According to the global E-commerce Foundation 2018, internet penetration continues to increase steadily every year. An approximate of 30% revenue in global groceries was achieved through e-commerce in 2018 which is further expected to rise in the near future. Thus, soft drink manufacturers are intensively focusing on developing new online stores that will help to boost the market during the forecast years.


Fluctuations in Availability and Price of Natural Resources to Dampen the Supply Chain

The fact that this industry is highly reliable on natural resources such as energy and water, creates several social as well as environmental externalities. Indirect greenhouse gas emission, reduced water availabilities, and increasing pollution promotes the disruptions in the availability of natural resources, which is expected to hamper the production capabilities in the market. However, manufacturers have recognized the opportunities and risks associated with sustainability issues, and entered into partnerships with the alcoholic beverages industry to form the Beverage Industry Environmental Roundtable (BIER). BIER is a technical coalition of leading companies such as The Coca-Cola Company, Pepsi Co., and others to promote the sustainability in the beverages sector.
