KEY DATA FINDINGS
2020 IMPACT
Carbonates suffers volume declines resulting from quarantine period, with on-trade sales of popular non-cola carbonates taking the greatest hit in 2020
Product innovations and recent product launches responding to health and wellness trends help sustain interest in carbonates in 2020
Loyalty factor remains low in Ukraine, and frequent price promotions from most popular major brands reduces pressure from low-priced segment in 2020
RECOVERY AND OPPORTUNITIES
Demand for new product innovations, low-calorie options as well as a greater need for indulgence are likely to drive demand for carbonates over the forecast period
Low-calorie cola, orange and other non-cola carbonates will drive sales but carbonates soft drinks perceived as healthier will present a greater challenge
Players will try to foster more consumption occasions for certain types of carbonates, bearing in mind that those with perceived health benefits have the greatest potential

KEY DATA FINDINGS
2020 IMPACT
Covid-19-related lockdowns, overall crisis conditions and related economic downturn impact juice more negatively than carbonates and bottled water in 2020
Multiple benefits of juice are not as readily apparent to consumers compared to that of other types of soft drinks
Per capita consumption remains low despite higher growth inspired by health and wellness trends, which do not transcend price concerns or result in habitual buying
RECOVERY AND OPPORTUNITIES
Juice is expected to fully recover from impact of COVID-19, albeit at a slower rate than that of other soft drinks categories
As COVID-19 is expected to have a negative impact on the Ukrainian economy, price sensitivity will continue to shape consumer interest in juice
Higher health awareness along with new product launches and promotions are expected to positively impact demand for juice over the forecast period

KEY DATA FINDINGS
2020 IMPACT
COVID-19 lockdowns and quarantine periods resulting in lower demand for bottled water in small containers for on the go results in stronger volume decline in 2020
Ukrainian consumption of bottled water is lower than the regional average, as many consumers cannot afford to purchase bottled products on a regular basis
For many Ukrainians with lower disposable incomes in an unstable economy, tap water is a more feasible option than bottled water
RECOVERY AND OPPORTUNITIES
While bottled water will see higher volume and value growth rates over the forecast period, negative economic impacts of COVID-19 will limit more rapid development
Per capita consumption is set to increase, but grey market presence may impede the ability to gain an accurate picture of real per capita levels over the forecast period
Despite higher health awareness and closer attention to the quality of water they consume, many consumers will likely stay with tap water and other cheaper options

KEY DATA FINDINGS
2020 IMPACT
Starting from a low base and building on the 2019 launch of Powerade, sports drinks sees strong off-trade volume growth that compensates for on-trade losses in 2020
Changes in consumer behaviour during COVID-19 lockdown and social distancing period result in strong volume growth in off-trade sales of sports drinks in 2020
Higher per capita growth of sports drinks is hindered by lack of awareness, its narrower distribution compared to that of bottled water and its higher unit price
RECOVERY AND OPPORTUNITIES
Culture of informed consumption developing in Ukraine is expected to result in greater interest in and demand for sports drinks over the forecast period
After COVID-19 wave recedes, sports drinks is set to benefit from consumers’ increased exposure to the products in gyms and other sports facilities
Powerade launch, behavioural changes prompted by the pandemic, and other developments are set to boost category growth, despite its remaining relatively niche

KEY DATA FINDINGS
2020 IMPACT
While unable to compensate for COVID-19-related on-trade losses, off-trade sales are strong enough to result in positive total volume and value growth in 2020
Failure of many to see a functional difference between energy drinks and other carbonates leads to lower per capita consumption than the regional average
Despite higher unit price of energy drinks, loyal consumers cognizant of the benefits continued to buy them in 2020
RECOVERY AND OPPORTUNITIES
Leading players expected to focus on educating consumers about the functional benefits that distinguish energy drinks from other soft drinks over the forecast period
Recovery of horeca and growing culture of informed consumption in Ukraine will play a significant role in boosting prospects for energy drinks in coming years
Consumption per capita gap between Ukraine and other players in the region likely to shrink as players focus on promoting benefits and responsible consumption

KEY DATA FINDINGS
2020 IMPACT
COVID-19 has little impact on concentrates, which lacks sufficient popularity in Ukraine to drive interest in consumption despite job losses and lower income in 2020
No new product developments are seen in powder or liquid concentrates in 2020 as producers see little potential in this category
Low per capita consumption of concentrates not only in Ukraine, but in Eastern Europe in general, reflects the category’s overall unpopularity in the region
RECOVERY AND OPPORTUNITIES
Negative volume growth is expected year on year for concentrates over the forecast period, as consumers continue to show more interest in other soft drinks categories
As soft drinks other than concentrates have higher potential, producers will continue to focus product development and marketing efforts there instead of in this category
In the absence of producer interest and investment in concentrates, those that have traditionally used them or who seek cheaper options will remain the consumer base

KEY DATA FINDINGS
2020 IMPACT
With COVID-19 restrictions leaving consumers with fewer occasions to opt for RTD tea, off-trade and on-trade value and volume sales dip by double digits in 2020
Per capita consumption of RTD tea remains below the regional average as Ukrainian consumers continue to opt more often for carbonates and bottled water
Coca-Cola’s and Sandora’s two leading RTD tea brands continue to account for more than 90% of total retail volume sales in 2020
RECOVERY AND OPPORTUNITIES
Producers expect to drive higher sales of RTD tea with product innovation and a focus on developing benefits and occasions for consuming iced tea
Ukrainian per capita consumption will remain lower than the regional average but the gap is expected to continue diminishing over the forecast period
Double-digit volume and value growth expected for still RTD tea, driven by retail sales during warmer months after COVID-19 no longer impedes higher consumption
