Trends in the world beverage market and packaging

in recent years, the demand for soft drinks in the world has continued to grow steadily, especially the drinks with the characteristics of weight loss, low sugar, hygiene, health and function/strengthening have become more and more popular with consumers, and the sales volume has increased rapidly year after year. Plastic bottles, especially PET bottles, are more and more widely used in soft drink packaging

mineral water

consumers all over the world turn to drinking mineral water more for health reasons and worry about the sanitation and cleanliness of daily drinking water. The sales volume of mineral water in the world increased from 84 billion liters in 1997 to 108 billion liters in 2000 and nearly 160 billion liters in 2004, with a total increase of 88% from 1997 to 2004. In particular, the sales volume of functional/enhanced mineral water increased faster, from 900million liters in 1997 to 1.2 billion liters in 2000 and 2.1 billion liters in 2004, with a total increase of 130%. Britain has always been the largest consumer market of functional/enhanced mineral water. In the past two years, some countries have witnessed a sharp increase. For example, Argentina's consumption increased by about twice in 2004, making it the fourth largest consumer in the world. The consumption of mineral water in the world has approached that of carbonated beverages in 2005, and will exceed that of carbonated beverages in 2006, making it the world's largest non-alcoholic beverage

the annual per capita consumption of bottled water (including mineral water) in Western Europe was as high as 77.4 liters in 2002, 41.6 liters in Latin America, 29.9 liters in North America, 19.4 liters in Eastern Europe and 5.2 liters in the Asia Pacific region. Italy, France, Belgium, Spain, Germany and Switzerland all consume more than 100 liters per capita, 172 liters, 148 liters, 130 liters, 121 liters, 110 liters and 108 liters respectively. The packaging of bottled water is mostly PET bottles. For example, the proportion of PET bottle bottled water in the total amount of European countries was 18% in 1992, increased to 29% in 1995, reached 40% in 1998, and now is about 60%. The packaging proportion of PET bottles in bottled water in Italy is 98.2%, that in France is 91.8%, that in Spain is 87.4%, and that in Britain is 74.7%. PET bottles have an absolute advantage in the packaging of bottled water such as mineral water in Japan, with the proportion as high as 96%, and the proportion of PET bottles in functional water is also as high as 90%

carbonated beverages

the sales volume of carbonated beverages increased from more than 150 billion liters in 1997 to about 190 billion liters in 2004. Carbonated beverages are divided into Cola carbonated beverages and non Cola carbonated beverages, and the former has a larger sales volume. The sales volume of cokes in the world is also growing steadily, but the growth rate is not high. In 1997, the sales volume of coke carbonated beverages in the world was 90billion liters, and in 2000 and 2004, it increased to 99billion liters and 107billion liters respectively, with a total increase of 17.6%. It is far from required that the growth rate of holding samples symmetrically with jaws is lower than that of mineral water. The sales volume of non Cola carbonated beverages increased slightly, with a total growth rate of 21.9% from 1997 to 2004, from 64 billion liters in 1997 to 71 billion liters in 2000 and 20 insulating glass gb/t11944 (2) 78 billion liters in 00204

the per capita consumption of carbonated beverages is the highest in North America. In 2002, an average of 157 liters of carbonated beverages were consumed by each North American resident. The per capita consumption in Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe and the Asia Pacific region were 59.2 liters, 49.4 liters, 22 liters and 4 liters respectively. The wear-resistant friction tester mainly passes through the grinding layer and friction paper of the test sample 3 liters. Among carbonated beverage containers in the United States, nearly 2/3 (64.9%) are metal containers, and plastic (PET) bottles account for 28.5%. However, as plastic containers will continue to grow in carbonated beverage packaging, the proportion of metal containers will fall to less than 60% by 2007, while the proportion of plastic containers will rise to more than 30%. In 2001, PET bottles of carbonated beverages in Japan accounted for 51.3% of the total, aluminum cans accounted for 26.1%, glass bottles accounted for 12.3%, and tin cans accounted for 10.3%

in the packaging of soft drinks (including carbonated drinks) in Europe, PET bottles occupy an increasing advantage. For example, PET bottles account for 80% in Britain, 62% in France, 61% in Germany, more than half in Portugal, and as high as 90% in Poland. Metal canned cool drinks account for only a small proportion, with 27% in Spain and Portugal, 33% in France, 19% in Britain, and 14% in Germany and Italy

fruit juice and vegetable juice drinks

the growth rate of the consumption of fruit juice and vegetable juice drinks in the world is not low, with a total growth rate of 43% from 1997 to 2004, which is much higher than that of carbonated drinks. The world sales volume was 35billion liters in 1997, and increased to 40billion liters and 50billion liters in 2000 and 2004 respectively. Fruit juice and vegetable juice drinks have become common drinks all over the world, but North America and Western Europe are their big markets and regions with high growth rates. In Western Europe and North America, a fruit and vegetable juice drink called "ace" has a good market. This fortified drink containing vitamins A, e and C is especially suitable for infants. Natural fruit juice drinks with tropical flavor, such as natural coconut juice, mango juice, pineapple juice and other drinks, are increasingly favored by consumers. Wild fruit juice drinks, also known as the third generation fruit juice drinks, contain a certain vitamin, amino acid or trace element, which is much higher than the traditional first generation fruit juice drinks (orange, apple, etc.), and some have medicinal value, with a good market prospect. Vegetable beverage is a new beverage in the world. Vegetables contain enzymes, which can directly participate in human metabolism. This function is not possessed by ordinary fruits. At present, countries have developed spinach, carrots, asparagus, cabbage, white radish, garlic and other beverages. Compound vegetable juice and fermented vegetable juice drinks are also being developed

in 2002, among fruit juice and vegetable drinks produced in the United States, plastic containers accounted for (4) 30% of all containers that maximize the braking force, ranking first in all types of containers. It is expected that this proportion will rise to 34.8% by 2007. Among Japanese fruit juice drinks, PET bottles account for more than 40%, paper containers account for about 30%, and about half of vegetable drinks use PET bottles
