Industry revenue growth has slowed over the past five years due to the global recession constraining demand across most of the industry's markets. The steadily declining sales of carbonated soft drinks in mature markets, the growing market power of big-box retailers like Walmart and Costco, and the economic downturn led soft drink giants to buy back their bottling operations. The industry will also benefit from more buoyant economic conditions in emerging markets, with rising disposable incomes and urbanization fueling demand for both carbonated and noncarbonated products.
