The United States Beverage Contract Bottling and Filling Market is expected to register a CAGR of 9.12% over the forecast period from 2022 to 2031.

Growth in the United States beverage contract bottling and filling is mainly influenced by the changing preferences of manufacturing firms, who usually outsource these specific activities to third-party players. This is because manufacturers are increasingly focusing on cost optimization and their core business. Contract bottling and filling provides several advantages. Firstly, it reduces the operational costs of the manufacturers. In many cases, it is estimated that the operational costs can be reduced significantly through outsourcing bottling and filling activities to contract companies and the decreasing costs of machines and labor costs.

– The manufacturing regulations, especially in the case of beverage products in the United States, are evolving rapidly. Meeting such stringent regulations and norms require several inspection and quality check operations. By outsourcing bottling and filling activities, the hectic task of meeting such regulations is passed on to the contracting agency, motivating more manufacturers to prefer contracting over in-house manufacturing activities. Moreover, the industry is rapidly growing, with many new products and technologies being introduced. Therefore, companies need to stay updated to meet the changing needs of customers.

– Admiral Beverage Corp. is among the largest suppliers of carbonated soft drinks (CSD) in the western United States. It has grown to three extensive facilities supplying carbonated and still beverages, bottled water, and fountain mixes to multiple distributors throughout the mountain and western states and Alaska. By adopting Bevcorp’s MicrO2 system, Admiral Beverage simplified deaeration, optimized blending, and sped up both filling and changeovers. The system limits dissolved Oxygen (DO) to reduce foaming, which allows the line to run faster. Faster speeds result in more throughput and decreasing costs per unit, as well as the correlating reduction in energy costs by not having to refrigerate ingredients.

– As brewers first launch their operations or begin to grow larger, they can either buy their filling machines or opt rented filling lines or contract filling solutions. Finding the right filling machinery was not easy and could cause significant troubles for beer companies. Different kinds of filling machines could handle a different type of liquid viscosities where beer has a varying filling requirement, depending on their viscosity and packaging. For these reasons, many companies in the United States are opting for contract bottling and filling, which significantly helps the companies to provide maximum efficiency with regards to bottling and filling.

Lion believes that it has a terrific opportunity to leverage Encore’s abilities and expertise as the business continues to drive to reach its full potential.

Sleeping Giant will engage in manufacturing Boulder’s brands and taking over the distribution and marketing of the Boulder-based institution’s beers in the marketplace. Instances such as this are expected to favorably impact the beer bottling and filling market in the United States.

Bottled Water is Expected to Witness Significant Growth

– IBWA claimed that bottled water is the healthiest packaged beverage and is particularly crucial as the US is faced with increased rates of obesity and diabetes. Even with continuing growth and increased consumption, bottled water still has the smallest water and energy usage among the packaged beverages. On average, only 1.39 liters of water and 0.21 megajoules of energy are used to produce 1 liter of finished. It plays a vital role in disaster relief. And importantly, it can only be available in times of emergencies if the industry is strong and viable throughout the year.

– In a report published by IBWA (International Bottled Water Association), bottled water is America’s favorite drink, outselling soda (by volume) for the fourth year in a row in 2022. It is also stated that, since 2006, there has been a 69% growth in the consumption of bottled water in the American market, and mostly this demand is generated consumer switching from carbonated soft drinks and fruit juices. According to the report, more than seven in 10 Americans (72%) say bottled water, still and sparkling, is among their most preferred non-alcohol beverage, which marked an increase of 9% compared with 2018.

– As most people are concerned about the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak and to prepare themselves, the demand for bottled water has increased significantly. To meet this increase in demand, bottled water companies in the country have increased their capacity to provide customers with the water that they need. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recommends that one should have at least 1 gallon of water per person per day available for emergencies. Buying and storing bottled water is a safe and convenient way to ensure to have an adequate supply available when needed, and this is expected to boost the increase in the demand for bottled water, which in turn is expected to positively impact the contract bottling and filling market in the United States.

– In June 2022, Nestlé considered selling most of its bottled water operations in the United States. That business accounts for a significant share of the Swiss food giant’s sales and has drawn criticism from environmental groups. The company generated revenue of USD 3.6 billion in 2022 from American water brands it owns like Poland Spring, Deer Park, and Zephyrhills, and from delivering purified water to homes and businesses. Environmental activists regard bottled water as inherently wasteful, at least in countries with drinkable tap water, because of the energy required to transport it to the store. Instances such as this may negatively affect the bottled water contract bottling and filling market in the country.
