Global non-alcoholic beverage sales are to jump by almost one third over the next five years as consumers move away beer, wine and spirits, a new study has claimed.
Health concerns over alcohol will help boost sales of soft drinks, fruit juices and other non-alcoholic products from US$1.545bn last year to $2.02bn by 2021, the report, released yesterday by Research and Markets, said. Leading manufacturers are concentrating on new product launches to match the changing consumer preferences, the report added.
