About this report
Every so often we witness the emergence of a new category – a product that is new to consumers, provides new benefits and is marketed under new brands. Twenty years ago the new category was Red Bull and energy drinks; more recently, probiotic dairy.
Today, coconut water is the fast-growing new category, with retail sales already above $450 million (€327.5 million), thanks to its strong isotonic, hypo-allergenic and all-natural health benefits.
Using new processing technologies and new brands, start-up companies in Germany, the US and elsewhere are growing coconut water sales quickly and commanding premium prices. Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Europe’s biggest brewing families and even Madonna have invested in the sector.
Coconut water has a host of advantages guaranteed to appeal to health-conscious consumers:
- It’s a natural beverage that needs no additions, not even a sweetener
- It’s hypo-allergenic, a key benefit in a world in which consumers are becoming more concerned about avoiding one or more of the eight major allergens
- It’s a natural isotonic drink, according to the United Nations, which has described it as “the fluid of life”, providing many of the same benefits as formulated sports drinks, but in an all-natural form.
Coconut water is set to redefine the sports drink market, giving consumers the choice of an “all-natural” isotonic drink for the first time ever.
