Consumption of juice is a beneficial way for health maintenance as minerals and phytochemicals are better absorbed by the body from juices rather than raw food stuff. But the main benefits associated with these products is that as these are served fresh, and retain the maximum of fruits minerals and vitamins as that of the raw fruit.

Effective bursts of various initiatives such as free promotional activities from several leading industry players in the form of spontaneous endorsements have been the significant factors in developing consumer consciousness about the gratifying benefits of these products. The industry participants have regularly taken to the social media for preaching the benefits of fruit juices, and this has immensely helped in enhancing the profile and driving the market demand for juices.

In 2016, regarding packaging, plastics held over 47% market share. Ease of plastic usage, easy availability, and broad application prospects is expected to favor the overall segment growth over the forecast period.

However, the downside of these products is in the manufacturing & storage processes. Issues such as food safety, shorter shelf life compared to other types of nonalcoholic beverages, unpasteurized or fruit juices are a goldmine of nutrients, but at the same time, these can also be a breeding platform for pathogens.

Juice manufacturing with UHPH technologies has abridged and simplified the process between factory and retail outlets and consumers. Hence, awareness of a healthier life along with several improvements in manufacturing technologies and various initiatives by the industry players in increasing availability of cold-pressed juices through several retail outlet channels are some of the clear indications for driving significant growth of cold-pressed juices for the next eight years.

R&D practices mainly focus on developing technologies and processes for increasing juices shelf life and higher extraction of nutrients from the raw pulp, which is then followed by the manufacturing process. There is a significant threat of backward integration from the buyers to minimize cost and to bring supplier power under control. There is also a significant threat of forwarding integration from raw material suppliers entering the manufacturing space.

Packaging Insights

Regarding packaging, plastic packaging dominated the German fruit juice market in 2016 and is forecasted to continue its dominance over the forecast period. Juices are prone to undesirable processes such as oxidation and hence need to be contained properly during storage, transportation, packaging, and processing. Plastic packaging due to its inherent benefits such as lightweight, inertness, flexibility, and recyclability increases the convenience factor. Such trends are expected to propel the segment growth over the next eight years.

Glass packaging is expected to witness an anticipated CAGR of 7.5% over the forecast period. Glass is one of the oldest methods used for fruit juice packaging. The advantages of the packaging method include its complete inertness towards fruit juices, and it does not affect the odor, taste or quality of the product. However, glass packaging is losing market share as the glass is more rigid, as well as costly as compared to plastics. Also, glass is highly brittle, thus making it prone to damage, thus limiting the convenience attribute of the overall packaging.

Cartons are another method of packaging enabling the protection of freshness, nutritional attributes as well as the flavors of long life and fresh juice products. They enable the distribution of juices at ambient as well as refrigerated conditions. The segment is expected to grow at an expected CAGR of 8.6% from 2017 to 2025.
