United States soft drinks market: Coca-Cola Co & PepsiCo continue to dominate
Soft Drinks in the US - a new market research report on 2014-04-28 05:41:01
While Coca-Cola Co and PepsiCo remain the leaders in the United States soft drinks market, Campbell Soup showed a large gain among the major companies. The soup and juice company acquired Bolthouse Farms in August 2012 to enter the premium chilled juice category. Hain Celestial purchased BluePrint, a maker of high pressure processed organic fruit and vegetable juices, in December 2012. The premium juice acquisitions give both packaged food companies access to affluent, health conscious consumers who are looking for good flavour and nutrition.

Beverage manufacturers continue to face pressure from federal regulators, class-action lawsuits and consumer activists. The current presidential administration has taken a more active role in regulating industries. Consequently, there are increasing investigations, enforcement and regulation by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), along with international, state and local governmental bodies. Attorneys are filing class-action lawsuits to argue fraudulent labelling. Consumers are also becoming more vocal online as they realise that they can organise online petitions, such as on, to ask for certain ingredients to be removed.

Supermarkets and hypermarkets continue to dominate retail sales, thanks to their wide selection of products, affordable prices and effective merchandising. Drugstores are becoming a bigger force in soft drinks, as they expand their food and beverage selections to compete better against supermarkets and convenience stores. The opening of Duane Reade and Walgreens flagship stores with Coca-Cola Freestyle machines and juice and smoothie bars has broadened consumers? view of drugstores.

With the exception of a few categories, such as energy drinks, liquid concentrates and RTD coffee, overall growth in sales of soft drinks is expected to remain rather flat over the forecast period. The maturity of the US soft drinks market makes it difficult to achieve growth, as Americans already consume high levels of packaged soft drinks. At the same time, concerns about obesity are prompting consumers to question their soft drinks consumption, as most beverages contain high levels of sugar. However, categories such as energy drinks and liquid concentrates, which offer added/functional value, including energy, vitamins and the ability to customise flavours, are likely to see continued demand amid ongoing efforts by consumers to maintain healthy lifestyles.
