The UK’s soft drink packaging market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% in terms of the volume sales over the forecast period 2017 - 2022. In 2014, carbonates constituted 43% of the soft drink consumption and PET packaging represented 69% of the carbonated packaging, followed by aluminum cans and glass bottles. In the UK, around 700,000 tons of soft drinks packaging ends up in the waste stream each year, of which about 320,000 tons comes from households, pointing to the potential to reduce the weight of soft drinks packaging by up to 20% across some parts of the sector. Soft drinks will see slow growth in the forecast period, with many product areas being mature. This growth is meanwhile likely to be driven by healthier options, with reduced sugar soft drinks set to see strong growth and innovation. Stevia could well emerge as a key sweetener in the forecast period if its flavor achieves mainstream consumer acceptance. Adult-focused drinks will also see strong investment, as players seek to expand adult consumption of these products.
Glass is the conventional method for packaging soft drinks, fruit juices, and waters. The advantage of glass packaging is that it is chemically inert and does not affect quality, odor, or taste of the product. It is strong, rigid, and 100% recyclable. PET is a popular choice for packaging because it is recyclable, lightweight, and flexible. It can be used for both still and carbonated products. Aluminum and steel cans are mainly used for carbonated drinks. They are lightweight and 100% recyclable. Using recycled aluminum to make a new can save 95% of the energy that would be needed to make a can from virgin materials. Cartons are another major packaging format for still drinks and fruit juices. They protect the freshness, flavors, and nutritional qualities of both fresh and long-life drink products, enabling distribution at ambient temperatures or under refrigerated conditions.
The UK’s soft drink packaging market is segmented on the basis of material (plastic, paper, metal, and glass), soft drink product (juices, bottled water, energy drinks, ready-to-drink (RTD), and carbonates), and products (beverage cans, PET bottles, cartons, and boxes).
