Global bottled water consumption 2007-2017

The volume of bottled water consumed worldwide has been on the rise since 2007. That year, about 212 billion liters of bottled water were consumed. By 2017 this figure is expected to increase to nearly 400 billion liters.

Bottled Water in Asia

By 2020, China is projected to consume approximately 20 percent of the global volume of bottled water, up from about 17 percent in 2015. India is also expected to nearly double its consumption of bottled water during that time period. For many South and East Asian countries, the tap water is considered unsafe to consume for those who are not acclimated to it, which could be a contributing factor for the widespread consumption of bottled water in that region.

Top Brands of Bottled Water in the United States

That year, private label bottled still water generated 2.78 billion U.S. dollars in sales, while private label bottled sparkling water had sales amounting to 529 million U.S. dollars in sales.
