Fluctuating fruit prices and a tighter retail environment have placed significant pressure on industry revenue over the past five years. Revenue is expected to grow only modestly over the five years through 2014-15, at an annualised 1.3% to reach $815.8 million. Slightly stronger revenue growth of 1.8% is forecast in 2014-15. While industry revenue has been supported by rising health consciousness, an uncertain consumer environment and rising competition from private labels have limited growth. Although demand for industry products has been buoyed by an improving economy, cost pressures and the rising cost of inputs have constrained profitability.
Firms in this industry produce and bottle a wide range of still beverages, including fruit drinks with less than 25% fruit concentration and more concentrated fruit juices.
