The soda fountains also help to minimize the use of soda bottles and cans, thereby reducing the hectic work to keep a bulk of beverage containers in store. However, awareness regarding the disposal of plastic bottles and aluminum cans has increased the sales of beverage dispensers in the industry. The use of regular tap waters for the making of soda beverages in dispensers has lowered the use of water containers.

This reduces the manufacturing of plastic containers, thereby creating a less plastic environment in the industry. In addition, the transportation cost for the delivery of bottle containers gets reduced by the incorporation of soda machines in the industry. Moreover, customizations such as mixing of various flavors in a single drink increase its penetration in the market.

The product helps to keep the favorite drinks of consumers loaded in a dispenser, thereby saving time by providing instant flavors of drinks ready to be served at parties and restaurants. In addition, the use of such machines at events and parties reduces the cost of hiring a bartender for serving and handling the drinks to the members. Moreover, keeping the soda machines at commercial spaces and institutes helps to keep the employees refreshing and active throughout the working hours of the day.

Product Insights

The countertop segment accounted for the largest share of 69.1% in the year 2018. The growth of the segment is attributed to the fact that the machine is very easy to install as it needs to be placed just above any space on a counter. This also makes the machine very easily accessible to the consumers for making a flavored soda drink. In addition, it provides a convenient option for dispensing ice to consumers, as it has an ice bin mounted on the top of a machine. However, an automated technology provided to refill the ice on the countertop types provides an extra convenience to the customers. This feature also helps to provide a well sanitized environment during dispensing of ice to the customers.

The drop-in type is the fastest growing segment, expanding at a CAGR of 6.4% from the year 2019 to 2025. The drop in type has a wide space at the bottom for filling the soda and ice in the machine. This large space is utilized for operation and other small works, thereby boosting its growth in the market. Bars and restaurants make extensive usage of the machine due to its feature of an extra space. The machine is very easy to operate as it is a simple mechanical device as compared to countertop types, thereby fueling the growth of the product over the forecast period. This also makes the dispenser less costly to the buyers. Moreover, its reliability due to a safe flush provided in the machine increases its demand in the market.

Dispenser Style Insights

Lever dispenser accounted for the largest share of 71.3% in the year 2018. The segment is driven by growing consumer preference to access soda drinks from a hands free machine. This feature provides a sanitary push function to consumers as only a cup needs to be in contact with the lever during the dispensing of a drink. Moreover, a rocking position of dispenser creates a simple operation for consumers while making a drink. This lever also makes the cup to be placed directly under the valve, thereby reducing the chances of mess and spills around the dispenser.
