After a difficult couple of years as a result of the financial crisis, the Bottled Water Production industry is out of deep water and recovering well. In an environment of low disposable incomes and poor consumer confidence levels, industry revenue was limited to weak rises as firms struggled to convince shoppers that they should pay for a product available to them at home for a minimal cost. However, thanks to industry operators' efforts to underline the health benefits of drinking water and boosts from hot summer weather, particularly over 2013-14, the recovery has gathered pace.
Firms in this industry bottle still or sparkling drinking water in plastic or glass containers. Firms producing water to be dispensed in water coolers are also included in the industry. However, beverages containing additives such as sugar and artificial colourings are classified as soft drinks and not included in this industry.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
