Per-capita volume sales in the soft drinks market worldwide by country in 2018

Unsurprisingly, the U.S. had the highest per-capita volume sales in the global soft drinks market with Japan, Mexico, Germany and the Netherlands making up to the top five nations. Notably growth in the U.S. soft drinks market is losing steam owing mainly to consumers preferring healthier options, with projections estimating the market to grow from 186.4 billion U.S. dollars in 2015 to just over 207 billion U.S. dollars in 2020, at a CAGR of only 2.13%.

Drinks such as Kombucha which were largely nonexistent just a few years ago have surged in popularity owing to their perceived health benefits. In fact global Kombucha sales are expected to increase from 1.2 billion U.S. dollars in 2018 to 3.5 billion U.S. dollars in 2025. The last few years have also seen more brands launch sparkling water, plant-based waters and other functional beverages, with the market value for plant-based water expected to increase almost five times during the period 2016-2024.

This includes cola drinks, lemonade, energy drinks, fruit nectars and soft drinks which contain some fruit juice content, flavoured mineral water, ice tea and “Ready to Drink” coffee-based drinks. The most important producers in this segment are Coca-Cola Corporation, PepsiCo and Red Bull. The market for non-alcoholic drinks is structured into off-trade sales (in stores) and on-trade sales (in bars, restaurants etc.). Statista values off-trade sales at retail prices and on-trade sales at purchasing prices to the on-trade establishments.
