Report Overview

The global soda water dispenser market size was valued at USD 1.0 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.4% from 2019 to 2025. Demand for soda dispensers can be mainly observed in quick-service restaurants. Beverages made with sparkling water are in great demand, thus leading to higher demand for this product in the market. Many restaurants have noticed the consumer behavior for bubbly drinks and have started installing such machines at their places, thereby increasing the sales of such machines.

U.S. soda water dispenser market

High penetration of soda dispensers in high-end restaurants, bars, and small-town diners is a key driving factor. The soda dispenser reduces the cost of packaging and bottling and gives higher profit margins to its owners, thereby resulting in boosting the sales in the market over the forecast period. Moreover, consumers consider it to be a fresh drink option as compared to those soda cans and bottles in the market, thereby increasing its market share in the industry.

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. Also, 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. Also, 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. Besides, 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 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 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.

Global soda water dispenser market

The push-button segment is anticipated to expand at the fastest CAGR of 6.9% over the forecast period. The segment is driven by its simplest design, easy to handle feature, and fast response of providing a drink on just a touch of a button, thereby leading to easy control and operation of the dispenser. The feature also allows us to instantly stop the operation of dispensing in case of disapproval of a certain flavor by the customer. Moreover, an extra convenience feature provided to the customers for putting the cup down during dispensing is anticipated to fuel the segment growth.

Regional Insights

In terms of value, North America held the largest market share of 42.1% in the year 2018. The market is driven by growing penetration of leading quick-service restaurants such as Subway, McDonald's, KFC, Burger King, Pizza Hut, and Dominoes. These restaurants are incorporating soda machines for the fast delivery of drinks for the consumers. Moreover, the penetration of leading manufacturers in the region such as The Coca-Cola Company, Pepsico Inc., and Dr. Pepper has driven the sales of soda dispensers. The soda water dispenser market growth is attributed to rising demand among the people for a fresh delivery of soda drinks in the industry.

Asia Pacific is expected to expand at the highest CAGR of 7.4% over the forecast period, on account of rising demand for the soda machines in the fast-food restaurant industry in countries such as China and India. The demand is anticipated to grow due to the rise in the purchasing power of the consumers, inclination towards the use of cost-effective products, and rising government initiatives. The soda water dispenser is an environmentally friendly machine due to its delivery through paper cups. This, in turn, has reduced the sales of plastic bottles, thereby boosting the market growth in the Asia Pacific.
