US Bottled Water Market Overview

Bottled water is a staple for many American households, as over four out of five consumers have poured a glass in the past three months. With bottled water’s growth accelerators being convenience, safety, and health benefits, there is potential for consumer interest to grow as brands continue to capitalize on these benefits. Concerns over tap water safety and the need for emergency supplies are some of the reasons bottled water is poised for success over the next few years.

Bottled Water Consumer Insights

  • Gen Z and Millennials are the largest consumer group. With 89% reporting consumption in the past three months, these consumers tend to prefer the taste and perceived safety of bottled water over tap, giving packaged water brands an edge.
  • Value-added water benefits may not be worth the extra dollars. As “lowest price” is the main purchase driver for bottled water purchasing, brands are challenged to effectively communicate their unique value propositions to consumers.
