Presentation Title: Imagine the Post Carbonates World
Presentation Description: 65% of the anticipated US$100 billion growth in soft drinks over 2013-2018 is set to come from categories perceived as natural: bottled water, RTD tea and juice. All the same, demand for functionality is accelerating, with energy drinks taking share from carbonates. Emerging markets, which are generating the majority of growth, have been the global bright spot. As soft drinks consumption in developed markets reaches a plateau and carbonates face a decline, will we enter what one might call the post-carbonates world?
