Background and report description
“After 20 years of dramatic growth, bottled water was held back from 2006 by a combination of a switch in types of water coolers, poor summers, the economic downturn and environmental concerns. Now, bottled water is back on the move again, driven by its key benefits of healthy hydration, on-the-go convenience, competitive pricing and environmental measures from lightweighting to recycled content in packaging,” commented Zenith Chairman Richard Hall.
The overall bottled water volume sales grew by 2.1% in 2011 to 2,099 million litres. Retail sizes under 10 litres, which accounted for 87% of the total, advanced by 3.0%. In contrast, the bottled water cooler market declined by 3.1%, due to continued challenging economic conditions and loss of business to point of use coolers which use mains water supplies.
One of the very first market reports in Zenith’s portfolio celebrates its 21st edition in 2012 and it remains the most comprehensive report available on the UK bottled water market, as a result of established relationships and detailed discussions with industry players.
