The Bottled Water Manufacturing industry has grown strongly over the past five years. Competition in the industry has increased, following the introduction of private-label bottled water brands, driving volume growth through lower prices and increased availability. However, lower prices have also meant that revenue has grown at a slower rate than volumes. Industry revenue is expected to rise over the five years through 2014-15 by an annualised 3.7%, to $710.7 million. In 2014-15, industry revenue is expected to grow 5.0%.
The Bottled Water Manufacturing industry consists of establishments that manufacture or bottle purified water, spring water or functional water. Establishments that manufacture soft drinks, fruit juice, alcoholic beverages or milk drinks are excluded from the industry. Also excluded are firms that are mainly engaged in the supply of water by pipelines or mains.
