U.S. Beverage Market Outlook 2021

Download Sample

Many packaged beverage categories are mature and rely primarily on population growth, and all are highly competitive. This challenges marketers to innovate in order to attract consumers who are increasingly demanding more from beverages. Opportunities abound for companies that invest in new product formats, functional formulations, more appealing flavors and sensory experiences, and different marketing tactics to appeal to dynamic consumer preferences.

The COVID-19 pandemic led to sharply increased demand for beverages in the retail sector – although not to the degree of the food sector, which saw more extensive stockpiling – as consumption shifted from the foodservice industry to the home. Even as foodservice outlets reopened and vaccination rates rose, many consumers are continuing to eat, drink, and snack mostly at home for a variety of reasons from convenience to health and enjoyment to saving money. As a result, demand on the retail side has slowed – and in some cases declined -- but remain elevated from pre-pandemic levels.

As of the publication of this report, the delta variant has caused infections and hospitalizations to rise in many parts of the country. Most of those becoming infected are unvaccinated. The rising number of cases is indicative of the failure to get enough people vaccinated to achieve herd immunity. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as of August 10, 2021, 59% of the U.S. population has received at least one dose and only 50% have been fully vaccinated. Many adults have resisted getting vaccinated for various reasons and many children (under the age of 12) remain unable to get a vaccine. The recent spike in cases and uncertainty around the delta variant has revived debate and in some cases forced action regarding mask and vaccine mandates, as well as restrictions on activities including delays in returns to offices. What happens over the next few months could impact sales and growth of beverages consumed at home.

With a focus on growth opportunities and “what’s next” – along with bringing decades of food and beverage market perspective and analysis to the table – U.S. Beverage Market Outlook 2021: Retail Trends & Consumption Preferences is packed with actionable insights about consumer trends, behavior, and motivations.
