Products covered in this Report
For the purpose 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, cafes, education establishments, the workplace and in
the on-trade (ie pubs, bars, 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.
Adult soft drinks in the off-trade are provided as a separate
segment and are not included in the market size under soft
drinks. Both carbonated and still premium or adult soft drinks are
included in the segment size.
