PROSPECTS
More convenient pack types target younger consumers

Convenient packaging is continuing to gain in popularity in overall hot drinks, especially amongst younger consumers. Flexible packaging, including flexible plastic, flexible paper, flexible aluminium/plastic, stand-up pouches and flexible aluminium/paper, is key to the drive towards greater convenience in hot drinks, as it is easy to carry and store, takes up little storage space and is easy to dispose of.

Household consumption supports continued demand for large-size packaging

With family consumption becoming one of the major scenarios for non-alcoholic drinks, large pack types are seeing sales supported by household demand. Affordability is key to maintaining demand for large packaging.

Packaging design plays growing role in brand development

Leading hot drinks players are increasingly using distinctive packaging design to differentiate their brands and products from those of competitors. Packaging is becoming increasingly important in hot drinks as there is relatively limited potential for product innovation.
