Soft drink production in China per month April 2020

In April 2020, approximately 14 million metric tons of soft drinks were produced in China, indicating a nearly seven percent increase compared to the same period of the previous year.

Soft drink market

The accumulated production volume of soft drinks in China in 2019 has exceeded 168 million metric tons. A closer look on consumption patterns reveals an increase in the purchase of soft drinks in China in the last decade with an exception for 2018. The forecasted sales revenue of soft drinks was expected to reach 860 billion yuan by 2022. However, leading Chinese beverage companies in the 2019 Fortune China 500 ranking only consisted of dairy and alcoholic beverages’ companies.

Functional beverages

According to several surveys, less people in China are favoring regular carbonated soft drinks and more prefer functional drinks such as energy-boosting beverages, fermented/probiotic drinks, low-calorie drinks, drinks promoting beauty or brain performance and health, functional water, and "detox" drinks. Most respondents admitted that they had tried fermented beverages promoting gut health and water with added vitamins or minerals. Majority would purchase such drinks in a supermarket or mini-mart rather than order them in a café or buy online.
