The Bottle Water Market


1.1. Presentation and market definition

 In France, activities related to the consumption of bottled water can be grouped under the nomenclature "Table water industry".

The bottled water market refers to production and consumption of:

  • spring water 
  • sparkling water 
  • water made mineral by treatment

Similarly to the global market, the french bottled water market is highly concentrated in the hands of historical leaders and  such as Danone, Nestlé Waters and Neptune, otherwise known as Roxane (Cristaline brand, market leader). The distribution of bottled water is mainly organized in food supermarkets. 

These actors have to face two major obstacles to their development: the ecological argument and the cost matter. Without recycling, bottled water has a significant impact on the environment because of its plastic container. Market players must therefore face increased competition from tap water consumption, which is more environmentally responsible and largely supported by ecological lobbies.


Bottled water has a image of quality and safety - communication axes chosen by these brands to promote their products and feed their marketing efforts.
