Bottled Water Market in South Africa 2016-2020

About the Bottled Water Market in South Africa

Bottled water comes from sources such as wells, springs, artesian wells, and the municipal water supply. It typically undergoes a purification process before being packaged in plastic or glass bottles. Bottled water can be categorized into mineral water, still water, flavored water, and sparkling water. However, its two primary forms are still and sparkling. Still water is similar to ordinary tap water and has not undergone any carbonation. Sparkling water, also known as carbonated water, soda water, seltzer water, or fizzy water, is water that has been artificially carbonated.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend that is driving market growth is the consumer’s priority for health and wellness. People opt for bottled water when they are on-the-go, as it is a healthy option when compared to calorie-heavy and sugar-heavy drinks, like juices and sports drinks. Growing awareness about healthy beverages due to advanced education, access to information, and dissatisfaction of municipal tap water are resulting in an increased shift toward bottled water.”

According to the report, a key driver for market growth is the rampant water contamination. South Africa is facing problems in ensuring that water resources are clean and safe for human consumption. There is growing concern regarding the toxicity of water in South Africa, which is leading to increased bacterial growth such as Pseudomonas, Escherichia coli, and Salmonella. This can lead to health problems such as severe kidney disease, bacterial diarrhea, intestinal deterioration, and arthritis. Acid mine drainage (AMD) is also a significant contributor to South Africa’s toxic water.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could hamper market growth is the growing demand for water purifiers. "
