global water market

Key growth trends in the global water market per technavio.

There are some distinct cross currents happening in the carbonated water market that could help identify your own blue ocean within the competitive category.

First of all, stating that you have pure or clean water is not enough at this point to compete for startups. Don’t fall into this trap! Other known consumer brands like Nestle and PepsiCo (the owner of the Aquafina) have been gobbling up market share for years in grocery and convenience stores by describing their products as pure.

Here are a three ways you can differentiate your water brand in the current environment:

Nutrients and Health Benefits: People are drinking less soda and more water largely due to the health benefits. By creating a water with unique minerals or vitamins that provide a unique health benefit can be a terrific approach. You see this in the tea industry a lot where brand touts improve benefits such as focus or calmness.

Flavor innovation: Coming up with new ways to creatively flavor water is another innovation. Testing unique fusions such as organic strawberry, mint and lemon can be a good approach. If you go after lesser used fruits or vegetables (carrots?) for flavoring this can be a solid differentiator.

Better for the environment: Over half of the thrown away plastic bottles contained water.  While many consumers want to eat and drink healthier, they don’t want to do it at the expense of the environment. Coming up with a solution to reduce or eliminate bottled water waste is another innovation that could help your product stand out.

Go local: Just like the craft beer industry has accomplished… Offering a regional water that’s sourced near your city or county can be a unique approach. The big well known water brands are sourced large water treatment centers located in different states than your customers. By finding a nearby spring, lake, or other source of clean water you can offer a product that the big companies can’t. This is the simplest way to differentiate your brand from the competition in grocery, retail, or online.

The water industry is growing and continues to be ripe with innovation. We hope this guide has helped you come up with some creative names for your own beverage brand.
