After a brief period of low demand due to falling disposable income levels and increasing environmental scrutiny, the Bottled Water Production industry will enter a period of recovery. Consumers with more discretionary funds will resume their purchases of bottled water. Meanwhile, the industry's adoption of eco-friendly practices will likely persuade environmentally conscious consumers to buy its products, while increasing operators' efficiency. Nevertheless, more environmental regulations and rising input prices will threaten profit margins over the next five years.
