In Q4-15, energy drinks continued to expand, while carbonates and sports drinks both showed declines. Energy drinks are attracting consumers with the functional benefits on offer. The carbonates category continued to feel the impact of the 'war on sugar', though this was ameliorated by promotional activity during the Rugby World Cup and milder temperatures over the festive season. Sports drinks continued to decline as competition from other categories drew consumers away.

Key Findings
Milder seasonal weather contributed to a slower decline in consumption levels of soft drinks for the quarter, though there was growth for the low calorie segment in Q4-15

Energy drinks has experienced some negative press this quarter, for example linking the bad behaviour of children in the classroom with energy drinks consumption, but in spite of this the category exhibits resilience
