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, soft drinks per capita consumption has steadily been decreasing over the years and reached around 65 liters in 2018, whilst 26.4 percent of consumers stated that bottled water is their favorite beverage in 2018.

In 2017, the trade value of imported non-alcoholic beverages reached approximately 874.22 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 711 million U.S. dollars (approximately 1.21 billion Canadian dollars) of waters, non-alcoholic sweetened or flavored beverages imported into Canada from the United States.

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.
