The Turkish drinks market remained stable in Q1-16 with soft drinks and hot beverages both showing positive growth and alcoholic beverages showing a flat performance. Increasing consumer trends towards health consciousness have created more demand for some categories such as packaged water and juice, while driving down demand for categories such as nectars and fruit powders. Continued consumer interest in the fermented milk category is encouraging more investment and new product innovations from manufacturers. The ban on any kind of advertisement for alcoholic beverages has hindered companies from investing in marketing activities.
Beer consumption continued decreasing in the first quarter of 2016, when restricting legislations regarding the sale of alcoholic beverages were introduced.
Carbonated mineral water companies promote additional health benefits such as important vitamins like magnesium, calcium and sodium contained in their products driving the overall market.
Consumption of dairy drinks increased in the Q1-16, with all categories gaining volume due to population growth which remains one of the major forces for the organic growth of the category.
In addition to organic growth due to population increase, the trend of visiting coffee houses has mainly supported the hot coffee drinks category.
