The global carbonated soft drinks market has enjoyed a prolonged period
of growth, and continued to grow during the recession. Notably, the United States accounts for a large proportion of the global total, but the market has been in decline for the past few years.
The company's recent strategy is centrally focused on the health and environmental benefits of its soda makers. It has also entered into a number of partnerships with other companies in order to increase the appeal of its supplementary consumable products and has begun an attempt at premiumization to promote the long-term appeal of its soda makers.
In the wake of its recent expansion efforts, SodaStream has seen its top line grow rapidly, and its US growth has actually outpaced its overall growth, outperforming the whole carbonated soft drinks market by some margin.
