The presence of COVID-19 in the country severely impacted the Mexican soft drinks industry, with lockdowns and other restrictions, such as foodservice closures, hitting sales in the foodservice channel particularly hard in 2020. While this moved some consumption from the foodservice into the retail channel, it did not necessarily result in greater unit volumes for soft drinks packaging, with consumers buying soft drinks such as carbonates and juices in bulk, including large pack sizes of two or three litres.
With the relaxation of Mexico’s COVID-19 regulations in 2021, as consumers began spending more time outside their homes, the retail unit volumes of PET bottles declined slightly in this year. However, PET bottle unit volumes are expected to increase at a steady rate during the forecast period with the growth of the overall soft drinks industry in Mexico.
A new brand of bottled water, Alkaline88, has been launched in Mexico. The primary pack type used by the brand is PET bottles, accompanied by plastic screw caps and beverage push-pull closures, which could help these pack and closure types to grow in the coming years.
In 2021, Mexico City officially banned single-use plastics such as cutlery, straws, cups and balloons, although these regulations stopped short of banning single-use plastic beverage bottles. However, with the use of plastic straws and cups expected to be impacted, this will influence the types of straws and cups used in soft drink products packaged with smaller pack sizes of brick liquid cartons.
Starbucks and Nestlé have partnered to form a global alliance to introduce Starbucks RTD coffee drinks from 2022. This is expected to provide a boost to the unit volumes of glass bottles and metal beverage cans in the coming years.
