Overview of the global coconut water market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global coconut water market to grow at an impressive CAGR of close to 27% between 2016 and 2020. Coconut water has become a perfect alternative to several carbonated drinks and sugar-laden drinks such as juices and nectars. It is a health drink, enriched with sodium, potassium, and electrolytes that can replenish body fluids. Coconut water also meets consumer demand for drinks that are free from artificial flavors, sweeteners, preservatives, additives, and gluten. Coconut water also helps in reducing blood pressure, which is a major reason for the increased demand for packaged coconut water over other fruit drinks. Some of the other health benefits of coconut water include weight reduction, enhanced skin texture, and improved digestion. Also, the growing popularity of coconut water in foodservice chains will contribute to the growth of the overall market during the forecast period. Many restaurants and eateries in the US and other countries are offering new health beverage products, such as coconut water, as a mainstream drink in their menus.

Geographically, the Americas dominated the global market during 2015, where the US is the largest consumer of coconut water in the region. Consumers are now shifting from high-sugar carbonated soft drinks to more natural drinks such as coconut water. New product introductions such as flavored coconut water and other innovative products will act as key growth drivers of the market in the region.

The global coconut water market has huge potential and is likely to witness tremendous growth during the forecast period.

Segmentation by product type and analysis of the coconut water market

  • Sweetened
  • Unsweetened

The unsweetened water segment is expected to grow at a faster rate compared to the sweetened segment over the predicted period. The increase in consumer demand for beverages without added-sugar and other preservatives is the major driving factor for this segment’s growth. Some of the major vendors in the unsweetened coconut water segment include Coco Libre, Purity Organics, ZICO, and Zola. It is important for the manufacturers to label their products accurately to represent that they do not contain any amount of sugar. The unsweetened coconut water is bland in terms of taste and does not interfere with any other flavors. It is a 100% juice product with simple ingredients and can be developed with an ideal viscosity level and an improved nutritional profile.

Segmentation by flavor type and analysis of the coconut water market

  • Flavoured
  • Plain

Flavored coconut water is gaining popularity in the market due to the increase in demand for nutritious, blended better-for-you beverages among the millennials across the globe. Consumers are opting for natural flavoring agents and without any added sugar coconut water. For instance, Purity Organic, a US-based manufacturer of different varieties of organic coconut water, offers Pineapple Coconut Water and Organic Mango Coconut Water, which are a natural source of hydration prepared with no added sugar.
