China is one of five nations worldwide set to drive massive growth
of in the carbonated drinks market by 2011, according to a new
report by consumer analyst Euromonitor.

The report found that China along with Brazil, Mexico , South Africa and the US, will account for 55 per cent of global growth within the sector over the next five years.

The findings highlight the massive opportunities within the country for beverage companies and packagers.

China boosts one of the most dynamic beverage industries in the world, with research by China's food industry association finding it had grown by 18 per cent in 2006 to produce almost 40 million metric tones.

The research added that carbonated beverages currently lead the beverage market, accounting for 23.8 per cent of all sales within the country.

Euromonitor attributes the massive growth to the developing nature of the countries economy's, as well expanding populations and increasing levels of disposable income.

However, the reports adds that, the market is set to be shaped by increasing health concerns amongst the country's consumers, encouraging producers to turn to healthier and lower calorie alternatives.

While the market for regular carbonated beverages like coke is predicted to fall by 12 per cent, overall declines are predicted to be offset by demand for more health conscious products like diet beverages, which will grow over the same period by 24 per cent.
