Bottled Water Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis
In 1977, determined to establish its brand and the American bottled water market, the French bottled water company, Perrier embarked on an ambitious marketing campaign for the brand. Perrier lowered its price point, expanded its distribution channels to include supermarkets and launched a huge marketing campaign. The plan worked. Not only did sales surge, the success prompted other overseas brands to enter the market and inspired some domestic bottled water companies to emerge as well.
While there exists plenty of room for the bottled water industry to grow in the United States, Third World countries appear to be the next frontier. Clean water is in such demand that municipalities of these countries cannot keep up. Those with means increasingly turn to bottled water as an alternative.
