Bottled Water Production in the US
Though the industry was hobbled by a brief period of low demand due to falling disposable incomes and increasing scrutiny about environmental impacts, the coming years will bring a recovery. Consumers with more spending money will resume their purchases of bottled water. Meanwhile the industry's adoption of eco-friendly practices will likely persuade environmentally conscious consumers to buy its products, while making operators more efficient at the same time. Still, increasing environmental regulations and rising input prices will threaten profit margins over the next five years.
