Non-alcoholic Beverages in Canada - Statistics & Facts

The beverage industry can be broken into two distinct categories; alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Alcoholic beverages typically include beer, wine or spirits, while a much wider variety of non-alcoholic beverages exist, including bottled water, carbonated soft drinks, fruit and vegetable juices, as well as ready to drink tea and coffee. In Canada, the market volume of carbonated and non-carbonated soft drinks amounted to approximately 11.32 billion liters combined in 2014. Of these, cola drinks accounted for more than 40 percent of the soft drink market.


In 2015, Canada imported non-alcoholic beverages valued at approximately 868.2 million U.S. dollars (approximately 1.2 billion Canadian dollars). That year, Canada’s trade of such beverages was predominantly with the United States, with more than 875 million U.S. dollars (approximately 1.21 billion Canadian dollars) of waters, non-alcoholic sweetened or flavored beverages traded between the two countries.

Retail store sales of non-alcoholic beverages generated approximately 6.44 billion Canadian dollars in 2015. Despite a survey finding 63 percent of Canadian consumers believe drinking from plastic water bottles is not good for their health, bottled water was one of the most popular soft drink categories, with 55 percent of respondents claiming to have consumed the beverage in the past month. In 2018, bottled water sales are forecast to reach approximately 2.61 billion Canadian dollars, a forecasted growth of 12.8 percent from 2013.
