Carbonated Soft Drinks - UK - June 2016
“The sugar tax is likely to have a severe impact on the soft drink industry and CSD sales in 2018, and as such is the single biggest challenge facing the industry. However, drinkers’ inclinations to switch to low-sugar versions and the strength of consumer demand for action on the sugar issue suggest that companies seen as proactive on this matter stand in good stead of shoring up their reputation among consumers.”
– Alice Baker, Research Analyst
This report discusses the following key topics:
- Consumer call for sugar reduction presents companies with a challenge and an opportunity
- Sparkling fruit juice with added vitamins could help to retain users
- New and seasonal flavours could maintain interest in the category
For the purposes of this Report, Mintel defines the carbonated soft drinks (CSD) market as covering all carbonated soft drinks sold through the retail and non-retail channels. Data includes sales through the following outlets:
Retail: This includes grocery retail outlets where CSDs are purchased for the purpose of consumption off-premise, comprising supermarkets, convenience stores and petrol forecourts among others.
On-premise: This includes anywhere where CSDs are bought to consume on-site, eg leisure centres, hotels, restaurants, fast food venues, cafés, education establishments, the workplace and in the on-trade (ie pubs, bars and clubs).
All mainstream carbonated soft drinks are included in the market size. Diet carbonates are included. Mixers (including tonic water, ginger ale, soda water and bitter lemon) are included. Soda water differs from fizzy water because of the addition of sodium and its status as a mixer rather than a drink to be consumed on its own.
