Market Overview

The Italian bottled water market is projected to register a CAGR of 2.18% during the forecast period (2020-2025).

  • Though the Italian bottled water market is well established, it is growing at a slow pace. The still water segment is expected to register a high sales growth in volume, and the sparkling and functional segments are expected to register a high sales growth in value.

Key Market Trends

Growth in Foodservice Expenditure and Tourism

The growing foodservice channel is a major driving factor for the sales value of bottled water, as foodservice occupies more than 60% of the market share, due to high product prices in this channel. Additionally, bottled water in Italian restaurants is associated with premiumization, and it is known to be five times costlier in foodservice outlets than in supermarkets. This factor is impacting its consumption value to a large extent. Furthermore, with 62.15 million tourist arrivals in 2018, Italy was ranked fifth in the global list of countries with the largest number of international tourist arrivals and 10th in the global list of countries with the largest international tourism expenditure. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, as well as globally. It has been recording increasing tourist arrivals since the past few years, which is driving foodservice expenditure and the consumption of premium bottled water, an inherent part of foodservice spending in the country.

The Still Water Segment Holds the Largest Market Share

The still water segment benefitted the most from the general increase in demand for healthy drinks, as it is perceived as a healthy alternative to other soft drinks and more thirst-quenching than sparkling water. There is also a tendency for Italian consumers to use still water for cooking at home. Still spring water is another potential segment in the Italian water industry, although it is still very small. Spring water is increasingly employed in the water cooler segment. Moreover, mineral water is a major part of the still water segment in the country. Italy is a country rich in mineral waters and, considering its orographic constitution, it can rely on natural mineral waters of different origins and compositions as a result of its granite rocks, dolomites calcareous, and volcanic rocks. Italy is one of the major exporters of mineral water to the United States.
