Over the past five years, falling per capita soft drink consumption significantly affected the Soda Production industry's performance. Demand for both regular and diet carbonated soft drinks has declined as more consumers turn to healthier beverages to quench their thirst. However, robust growth of energy drink brands kept the industry from completely going flat. Nonetheless, strong media coverage on the adverse effects of sugary beverages ultimately burst producers' bubble. Over the five years to 2022, the industry's soda segment will experience a difficult operating environment, as government campaigns promoting healthier habits cause consumers to purchase less soda, despite improving consumer spending. Even with the introduction of healthier soda made with all-natural ingredients, volume consumption is anticipated to further decline as taxes and bans on soda are implemented at the state and city levels of government.
Companies in the Soda Production industry manufacture soft drinks by blending various ingredients with artificially carbonated water. This industry also includes energy beverages. Producers of bottled water, ready-to-drink teas and coffees, as well as juice manufacturers are excluded from this industry.
