DUBLIN, June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/t9cwvd/flavored_and) has announced the addition of the "2014 Report on the International Flavored and Functional Water Market - Forecast to 2019" report to their offering.
Increasing obesity rate, rising aging population and changing consumer preferences are the major growth drivers for the global flavored and functional water market.
Growing health concerns are restraining the masses from consuming carbonated or artificial flavored drinks and compelling them to opt for flavored and functional water. Flavored and functional water are generally priced similar to carbonated drinks, which reduces the switching costs for the consumers, thus increasing their attractiveness. Major growth challenges for the industry include threat of substitutes and increasing campaigns against packaging bottles.
Emerging markets such as countries in Asia, Latin America and the Middle East have witnessed rising urbanization and increasing disposable income, which act as an opportunity for the overall flavored and functional water market. Increasing urbanization has increased the awareness levels of the consumers regarding the products that help in their wellbeing.
The increasing income levels have also enabled the consumers to spend on premium products thus providing great opportunity for the flavored and functional water market players to focus in these markets. The U.S., Germany, France, Italy and Japan were the top flavored and functional water markets in 2012. Asia Pacific is emerging as a strong flavored and functional water market registering double-digit growth in 2012.
