Rising consumer and manufacturer confidence in the economic outlook was a primary growth factor for soft drink market. Consumers continue to fear counterfeit volumes on the alcoholic market.

Carbonated water showed stronger sales than still water due to the growth in the Horeca channel.
The cider category is growing rapidly, helped by large scale investment.
Increases in tourism and on-premise distribution expansion aided volumes of hot beverages.
Hot tea and hot coffee continued to show very limited growth as the categories are saturated.
