Other reasons that will fuel growth in this market are a rising aging population and changes in consumers’ preferences. The prices of carbonated drinks are at par with functional and flavored water, which makes it easier for consumers to switch over from the former to the latter. However, despite these low switching costs, the functional and flavored water market does need to contend with a few challenges. These include: a threat from substitutes and a spiraling campaign against plastic packaging bottles worldwide.
