Market Growth Factors

The increasing interest of young individuals in authentic beverages

Due to the growing popularity of a healthy lifestyle, rising health concerns and the desire of young adults for authentic beverages are driving the craft soda market's expansion. Nowadays, consumers take a holistic approach to well-being and prefer beverages that offer greater health advantages. The trend of functional and healthful beverages is becoming increasingly popular among consumers. Consumers are prepared to test healthier alternatives to conventional soft drinks as they have grown more health conscious. Especially among consumers looking for products with high sugar content as the price for their health, enhanced craft soda is acquiring a strong market position.

Increasing consumer awareness of the hazardous components in soft drinks

The demand for craft soda is expanding at a rapid rate due to rising levels of consumer knowledge regarding the hazardous additives that are used in soft drinks. Sugary drinks like soda have a high concentration of sugar, which raises insulin levels and supports the growth of tumors. Cancers of the breast, prostate, and pancreas may be more likely to develop in people who consume soft drinks colored with chemicals that are also used to flavor and color soft drinks.

Marketing Restraining Factor

Health-related issues due to access consumption

The use of soft drinks has been connected to several long-term health issues. The elevated risks are due to the additional ingredients in soft drinks, mainly sugar. However, some sugar-sweetened soft drinks have a couple of grams or more of sugar per ounce serving, which is more than the adult daily recommended limit. The risk of developing metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes is significantly increased by consuming one to two servings of sugar-sweetened craft soda each day. All these factors are negatively affecting the craft soda market.
