U.S. Premium Bottled Water market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Premium bottled water has proved to be not only a key component of the U.S. and Canada liquid refreshment beverage market but is also on track for additional increase in per capita consumption in the coming years. Beverage Marketing Corporation predicts that it could climb to around 50 gallons in the upcoming years. Premium bottled water sets itself apart from the mass market using a unique selling point, attracting a target consumer group and commanding a higher product value than the mass market. The rising awareness among consumers with regard to premium-quality drinking water is a major factor driving market growth.

In the past few years, Canadians and Americans have switched to premium bottled water from carbonated beverages, as these premium products are claimed to be calorie-free and healthier. With growing awareness regarding hydration, ingredients, and their sources, consumers in the U.S. and Canada have driven a strong demand for premium bottled water. This trend is expected to ensure market expansion over the forecast period.

Rising concerns about the decreasing groundwater levels in these countries, which result in the deterioration of water quality, along with the increasing incidence rates of floods, drive regional demand for bottled water. Moreover, several factors drive premium bottled water demand in the U.S. and Canada, including portability, convenience, and minimal maintenance costs. The scarcity of drinking water in several regions necessitates the requirement of safe drinking water, leading to increased product sales.

The U.S. has some of the global premium bottled water companies, including The Coca-Cola Company, Nestlé S.A., PepsiCo Inc., and Dr Pepper Snapple Group, among others. These companies mainly focus on product launches, which boost product visibility among consumers. Numerous bottled water manufacturers in the U.S. are introducing flavored products as a rising number of Americans are switching from high-sugar carbonated drinks to premium flavored water.

For example, in March 2021, The Coca-Cola Company introduced the smartwater+ line of premium wellness waters that utilize unique ingredients and flavor extracts. The company has been selling this product through select retailers across the United States. As per the company, the growth of the premium water segment is backed by the fact that consumers have been rapidly embracing an evolving definition of health and wellness and the important role of hydration in their lives.

The sparkling bottled water industry is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 8.2% in the forecast period (2023-2030) in revenue. With the growing trend of leading a healthy lifestyle among people of all ages, individuals across the world are gradually turning to healthier and more inventive drinks, such as sparkling water.
