U.S. Beverage Market Outlook 2020: Grocery Shopping & Personal Consumption in the Coronavirus Era
Most packaged beverage categories are mature and rely primarily on population growth, leaving beverage marketers with the challenge of bringing something new to the table. Opportunities abound for companies that invest in new product launches, seasonal offerings, the addition of functional ingredients and specialty flavors, and different marketing tactics to appeal to changing consumer preferences.
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a sudden and sharp increase in demand for beverages in the retail sector – albeit not to the degree of the food sector, which saw more extensive stockpiling – as consumption has been shifted from the foodservice industry (including cafeterias in schools and restaurants) to the home. As a result, demand on the retail side has increased to balance some amount of the losses in the foodservice market as consumers shift their beverage spending to at-home consumption.
With a focus on “what’s next” – along with bringing decades of food and beverage market perspective and analysis to the table – U.S. Beverage Market Outlook 2020 is packed with insights about consumer trends, behavior, and motivations.
