TABLE OF CONTENTS 12 | Bottled Water 2019: Slower But Notable Growth For the fourth year in a row, Beverage Marketing Corporation (BMC) reports that bottled water is the largest beverage category by volume in the United States. In fact, except for a couple of small reductions during the Great Recession of 2008-2009, bottled water’s volume has grown every year since 1977, when BMC started tracking bottled water data. Read this article to learn how BMC anticipates bottled water will continue to reshape the U.S. beverage market. By John G. Rodwan, Jr.

CHAIRMAN’S COMMENTARY THE NEW COST OF BUSINESS

What will a post-COVID-19 purchasing system look like for the bottled water industry? Bottled water has always been on the cutting edge of innovative equipment and supplies. There was a time when the only way to discover new equipment for our route operations and plants was to attend a trade show. For many years now, that’s not been our only option. The internet puts all the information we need at our fingertips and enables us to make purchasing decisions from home. Visit a supplier’s website, and you can see the company’s products, read the specs, watch a video of the equipment in action, and even make a purchase. Personally, however, I still prefer the face-to-face interactions that can only happen on the trade show floor. Now, here’s the question: Will the COVID-19 pandemic significantly change the way we do business? A lot of us saw our office staffs seamlessly adjust to working remotely. Most of their job responsibilities can be performed on computers and the internet. If you read “Coping With COVID-19” in the May/June issue of Bottled Water Reporter (visit bit.ly/BWR_CopingWithCOVID19 to read), then you have a little insight into how my bottling and route operations were revised to follow government guidelines as the disease began to spread throughout the United States. That said, I do not see the pandemic changing our buying habits. What I do see is us growing apart as an industry if this pandemic does not allow us to come together as an industry and hold meetings and conventions. IBWA recently wrapped up our successful virtual committee and board of director meetings in June. I’m proud of all that we accomplished during those meetings, but I’m of the opinion that we need social gatherings to reaffirm and invigorate our strong sense of “community.” In-person meetings give us an opportunity to connect—to share a cup of coffee, exchange ideas, and informally discuss possible solutions to the challenges facing our industry. I’ve been an IBWA member for many years, and I have established most of my business relationships by running into other attendees at IBWA functions. It is human nature to do business with people you know—and, for me, it’s hard to get know someone through a Zoom meeting. So, it is my hope that this pandemic passes, and we get back to being able to come together to renew existing industry relationships and make new ones. Until then, stay safe and I’ll see you on the internet for my next purchase.

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE THE BUYERS’ GUIDE YOU DIDN’T KNOW YOU NEEDED More than half of the trade show events planned for the first half of 2020 were cancelled. That’s according to research conducted by Bizzabo, an event technology company, and not a shocking statistic considering the effect the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the U.S. economy. A few IBWA members have noted that stay-at-home policies have deterred them from traveling. That means, most likely you haven't met with suppliers face-to-face this year—but you still need to learn about new products and services that can help your company be successful during these unprecedented times. That's why I encourage you to use IBWA's annual Buyers' Guide to connect with suppliers that are knowledgeable about bottled water issues. The 2020 Buyers’ Guide (p.22) presents a list of IBWA suppliers and the innovative and essential products/services they offer. Active IBWA members know the value supplier members bring to this association. Our supplier members show their commitment to this industry not only buy paying their membership dues but also, and most importantly, by participating on IBWA committees. They invest in learning about the issues bottlers face—and then strive to find ways to help bottlers overcome those challenges. I encourage all IBWA bottler members to flip through the pages of this guide to become acquainted with the supplier members that continuously show their support of the bottled water industry—and I encourage you to support them too! Undoubtedly, bottlers will continue to need the products and services IBWA suppliers offer, as the growth of the bottled water industry shows no signs of stopping. In “Bottled Water 2019: Slower But Notable Growth" (p.12), Beverage Marketing Corporation’s (BMC) John G. Rodwan, Jr. reveals that, for the fourth year in a row, bottled water is the largest beverage category by volume in the United States. In fact, bottled water extended its lead over carbonated soft drinks, the former top category, which once again decreased in size. Notably, BMC predicts that bottled water’s growth will continue to outpace carbonated soft drinks and all other packaged beverages. Our columns cover the hot topic of the year, the COVID-19 pandemic—with the Government Relations column (p.52) reviewing how the virus is reshaping the agendas for state legislators and the Technical Update column (p.56) discussing how, through established partnerships, IBWA has provided members with essential information that has helped them conduct business during the pandemic. And, as we are in the summer months, our Communications column (p.54) offers tips and resources all IBWA members can use to educate consumers about the importance of staying hydrated. While we are living in uncertain times, there is one thing our members can count on: IBWA will always be here to help ensure the continued success and growth of our member companies—and the bottled water industry.

ADVOCACY

Bottled Water Industry Leaders Discuss Environmental Issues With Congress During Successful “Virtual Hill” Day IBWA’s annual June Hill Day visit was a little different this year, as COVID-19 prevented bottled water professionals from traveling to Washington, DC, and holding in-person meetings with members of Congress and their staffs. However, IBWA members were still able to conduct these important meetings via Zoom video conferencing on June 17, 2020. These meetings provided an excellent opportunity for IBWA members and staff to discuss with Capitol Hill legislators how the bottled water industry has responded to the COVID-19 crisis—continuing to serve its customers while providing assistance to those in need 6 • BWR • WWW.BOTTLEDWATER.ORG

in their communities—and advocate for policies that benefit bottled water.

IBWA members and staff also were able to voice their opposition to H.R. 6185,

IBWA plans to hold more meetings with legislators this year, and, if COVID-19 restrictions persists, those federal and state meet­ings may be virtual. Meeting with several House representatives, IBWA members discussed the bottled water industry’s leadership on environmental and sustainability issues, stating the industry uses less plastic in its packaging than ever before, produces products that are 100 percent recyclable, has the lowest water and energy use of all packaged beverages, and is a major user of recycled PET and HDPE plastics.

the Save Our Springs Act, which would impose a $0.06 per gallon tax on spring and groundwater used for water bottling purposes. This would be an inequitable tax burden on the bottled water industry, as no other groundwater users would encounter this tax, even though the bottled water industry only uses 0.01 percent of all groundwater in the United States. This

proposed legislation would also impose increased costs on those who could least afford it—lower- and middle-income families who have a higher share of their budgets going to basic food items. While consumers can choose other hydration sources, some live in communities that are impacted by contaminated tap water systems and rely on bottled water for everyday needs. This would become an extreme cost burden to those consumers should the tax be imposed. IBWA’s Government Relations staff are considering holding more meetings with legislators in the coming months, and, if COVID-19 restrictions are still in place, those federal and state meetings could be virtual. THE NEW "FACE-TOFACE" MEETING While company travel restrictions might hinder you from traveling to Washington, DC to meet with your members of Congress in person, you can still schedule a time to discuss issues with your legislators. IBWA can help you set up a meeting to ensure that your legislators are up to date on the issues that concern the bottled water industry. IBWA members who are interested in scheduling a virtual meeting with their members of Congress or state legislators are encouraged to contact IBWA Vice President of Government Relations Cory Martin: cmartin@ bottledwater.org.

RECYCLED CONTENT MANDATE LEGISLATION

IBWA Supports Recycled Content Concepts; Identifies Concerns With Details of New Jersey Bill Jointly with the Northeast Bottled Water Association, IBWA submitted comments regarding New Jersey’s Senate Bill 2515, proposed legislation that would establish recycled content mandates for plastic, glass, and paper packaging. For plastic beverage containers, the bill sets mandates for the use of recycled content beginning at 10 percent in 2022, 25 percent in 2026, and 50 percent in 2031. The mandates would not apply to a refillable plastic beverage container, which is defined as a “plastic beverage container that has a capacity of 150 fluid ounces or less, holds 150 fluid ounces or less of beverage, and which ordinarily would be returned to the manufacturer to be refilled and resold.” IBWA expressed support for the concepts of recycled content use but identified concerns with some of the language in the bill. Items of concern

that IBWA addressed included the initial mandate of 10 percent starting in 2022 being too soon, a lack of recycled content availability, unreasonable and punitive penalties, and measurements being in the aggregate. IBWA proposed the state consider studying the markets, similar to what has been done in California and Washington State, prior to setting mandates for recycled content. On June 17, 2020, the New Jersey Senate Environment and Energy Committee held a hearing on S.B. 2515. While many groups that testified held neutral positions on the legislation, everyone recommended changes or had concerns with the measure. Other organizations that submitted testimony and provided comments included Ameripen, New Jersey Business and Industry Association, Plastics Industry Association, New Jersey Chamber of

Commerce, New Jersey Food Council, Chemistry Council of New Jersey, and the American Chemistry Council. Several environmental groups that testified also cited concerns with the bill. While no action was taken on the legislation, the committee will need to have a separate meeting to vote on the measure and possibly move the legislation forward. IBWA will continue efforts to provide lawmakers with details on suggested language and concepts for the legislation and work with other allied groups to ensure anything that might be brought before the committee for a vote has been thoroughly vetted. If you have any questions on this proposed legislation, please contact IBWA Director of Government Relations J.P. Toner: jtoner@bottledwater.org.

STATE ISSUES

IBWA Responds to Washington Plastic Reduction Survey

IBWA participated in a Washington State survey concerning a report on policy and technology options and innovations for managing plastic packaging waste. IBWA answered questions on bans, taxes and fees, bottle deposits, extended producer responsibility, and other topics addressed in the report. IBWA will use its answers to draft formal comments on the report to the Washington State Department of Ecology (DOE), which are due July 15. The report is a directive of the Plastic Packaging Evaluation and Assessment law, which was passed by the Washington State legislature in 2019. The legislation states that producers of plastic packaging should consider the design and management of their packaging in a manner that ensures minimal environmental impact. Producers of plastic packaging should be involved from design concept to end-of-life management to incentivize innovation and research to minimize environmental impacts. The law sets the following goals with a January 2025 deadline: All plastic packaging sold into the state is 100 percent recyclable, reusable, or compostable; plastic packaging in all goods contains at least 20 percent postconsumer recycled content; and plastic packaging is reduced when possible, optimizing the use to meet the need. The measure directed DOE to hire an independent third-party contractor to conduct a study of the impacts of plastic packaging in Washington and develop recommendations for managing it. The report and recommendations are due to the legislature by October 31, 2020. IBWA members who have questions about the Washington State survey or IBWA's planned formal comments are encouraged to contact IBWA Director of Government Relations J.P. Toner: jtoner@bottledwater.org.

PROPOSED LEGISLATION

IBWA Addresses California Bills on Taxes and Recycling; Identifies Negative Impact on Bottled Water Companies IBWA recently signed on to letters addressing two different issues in California that would impact the bottled water industry. Cosignatories included many businesses and associations working to educate the state legislature after its session restarted following the state shutdown due to COVID-19. First, IBWA joined more than 60 other state and national businesses and associations in a letter opposing Assembly Bill 398, which would create a statewide tax on jobs by imposing a new “headcount” tax on California employers that have more than 500 employees. The tax rate proposed would be $275 per employee. Led by the California Taxpayers Association, the coalition’s letter argues that AB 398 would greatly increase the cost of doing business in California—a cost that would be passed onto consumers in a time when budgets are strained and unemployment is high. It also punishes businesses hiring more California workers, regardless of the company’s location, thus exacerbating the unemployment crisis by slowing hiring and delaying the ability of California workers to return to work. The measure has yet to be addressed by committee. Second, IBWA signed on to a letter intended for Assembly Member Susan Eggman, the sponsor of AB 1583. That legislation, which passed in 2019, establishes a Statewide Commission on Recycling Markets and Curbside Recycling. The commission is set to issue policy recommendations to achieve specified market development goals and waste reduction goals. It will also

provide regular feedback to the department on public messaging designed to encourage proper recycling and minimize contamination in curbside recycling programs. However, the legislation failed to include representation on the commission from the broader business community. The commission currently consists only

More than 60 businesses and associations are opposing California's AB 398.

of representatives of public agencies, private solid waste enterprises, and environmental organizations that have expertise in recycling. IBWA joined several state and national associations in requesting the expansion of the commission to include representatives of consumer product companies, manufacturers, including those that use recycled content as feedstock to make new products, and other business/ agriculture/food processing interests.

consumers of all kinds. Carbonated soft drinks, of course, lacked precisely those attributes and struggled to grow, let alone sustain, their volume as a result.

Bottled Water

Plastic bottles in single-serving sizes became the most popular format, driving overall growth of the category and accounting for the majority of its volume. Yet most other segments, including home and office delivery (HOD), sparkling water, and imports, also registered growth in 2019. The sole exception was larger, multi-serving bottles (generally ranging in size from 1 to 2.5 gallons), which were essentially flat. Domestic sparking advanced at a double-digit rate for the sixth year in a row, driven in part by major beverage companies’ efforts in the segment. Imports moved in advance of the total bottled water market, but, like sparking water, grew from a relatively small base.

Carbonated Soft Drinks

included 17 double-digit annual volume growth spurts. Since resuming growth in 2010, bottled water volume has reliably enlarged at solid single-digit percentage rates. As a result, per capita consumption approached 44 gallons in 2019, while average intake of carbonated soft drinks dipped below 37 gallons. Broader trends can be discerned by observing the diverging trajectories of the two biggest beverages. Bottled water’s rapid rise coincided with and contributed to major changes in consumer preferences for refreshment and rehydration. As the quintessential portable and affordable beverage, bottled water prompted the formation of new habits and even new usage occasions. Suitable for consumption at any time of night or day, and not necessarily requiring to be kept ice cold, bottled water became the preferred beverage option not only for consumers aiming to reduce caloric intake or lessen artificial sweetener usage but also for

Before the economic downturn at the end of the century’s first decade, bottled water enjoyed a lengthy run of forceful volume growth, as documented in U.S. Bottled Water through 2024, Beverage Marketing Corporation’s latest yearly analysis of the market. During the 2000s, bottled water volume charted double-digit percentage growth rates in two years and advanced at rates close to that level in several others. Bottled water volume grew by nearly 12 percent in 2002, and, after growing by almost 11 percent in 2005, it enlarged by 9.6 percent in 2006. Departing from the pattern of preceding years, bottled water volume declined during the Great Recession, by 1.1 percent in 2008 and then by 2.5 percent in 2009.

2019 STATISTICS In contrast to carbonated soft drinks, which followed a number of years of tepid growth with multiple volume reductions, bottled water demonstrated that its two consecutive losses were aberrations rather than the beginning of stagnation. (Of course, if the economic consequences of the novel coronavirus pandemic prove to be severe and long-lasting, they could certainly have an impact on the bottled water business.) When bottled water volume resumed growth in 2010, it effectively restored volume to where it had been prior to the declines. Still stronger growth ensued in subsequent years. By 2019, volume reached a new volume record—more than 5.7 billion gallons higher than it had been in 2007. Carbonated soft drinks, on the other hand, underwent their fifteenth consecutive year of volume reduction in 2019. Bottled water producers’ revenues also fell in both 2008 and 2009, and did so more dramatically than volume did, but they also recovered. Bottled water wholesale dollar sales first approached $6 billion in 2000. By 2007, they neared $11.9 billion. Category sales declined by almost 4 percent to $11.4 billion the following year and then by 5 percent to $10.9 billion in 2009. They inched upward in 2010 and 2011 and moved above $12 billion in 2012.

In a few years, bottled water per capita consumption is predicted to climb to 50 gallons. Wholesale dollars reached $12.7 billion in 2013 and exceeded $13.5 billion in 2014. They hit $14.7 billion in 2015, surpassed $16 billion in 2016, topped $17 billion in 2017, climbed above $18.3 billion in 2018, and exceeded $19.4 billion in 2019. At the retail level, 2019 sales were $34.6 billion, up from $32.9 billion in 2018. As with both volume and wholesale dollars, this represented slower year-over-year growth than was measured one year earlier but a significant advance of 5.2 percent all the same.

No.1 in Consumption Upward movement in per capita consumption indicates undeniable, persisting demand for a product that consumers see as a healthy alternative to other beverages. U.S. residents increased their annual consumption of bottled water by 16.5 gallons in the span of a decade, from a bit more than 27 gallons per person in 2009 to 43.7 gallons in 2019. During the same period, per capita consumption of carbonated soft drinks dropped by more than 8 gallons. Per capita consumption of major beverage categories like milk and fruit beverages also fell. Other types, including coffee and tea, were characterized by stability, though the readyto-drink versions of both categories made gains. Those beverages associated with beneficial properties and functional benefits—a group that includes packaged water as well as energy drinks, sports beverages, and ready-to-drink tea—were the most resilient elements of the beverage market after 2009. Even so, average intake of ready-to-drink tea and sports beverages remained fractions of bottled water’s per capita consumption level. Indeed, bottled water added more gallons to its per-person consumption rate in 10 years than either ready-to-drink tea or sports beverages reached by the end of that period. (Ready-to-drink tea intake stood above 5 gallons per American in 2019, while sports beverages remained just below that level.) Bottled water proved not only to be a key component of the U.S. liquid refreshment beverage market but also on track for additional increases in per capita consumption in the future. Beverage Marketing predicts that it could climb to around 50 gallons within just a few more years.

Bottled water achieved its No.1 position by enticing consumers away from other packaged beverages. Several attributes explain bottled water’s ongoing appeal for U.S. consumers, including its associations with healthfulness, convenience, safety, and value. Varied packaging types, ranging from bulk to single-serve, facilitate a wide array of uses. Among commercial ready-to-drink beverages, bottled water is fairly inexpensive, and aggressive pricing, especially in the retail PET segment (named for its bottles made from polyethylene terephthalate), made it more and more affordable. Consumers’ interest in beverages that boast benefits beyond refreshment alone also played a part in the fundamental hydrating beverage’s rise in the beverage rankings. The fact that bottled water has zero calories and no artificial ingredients appeals to many consumers. Even where tap water may be safe, people may prefer bottled water, which they deem as better tasting. The ready availability of packaged water wherever beverages are sold also differentiates bottled water from tap. These qualities also explain why bottled water was so sought-after during pandemic-fueled pantry-loading during the first quarter of 2020. While it has sometimes been likened to tap water, bottled water achieved its position at the pinnacle of beverage standings by enticing consumers away from other packaged beverages. Some consumers may have transitioned away from regular, full-calorie sodas in favor of their diet versions, but many others opted for bottled water instead. As some consumers became leery of artificial sweeteners, they shifted away from diet sodas as well as regular counterparts.

Category Developments As usual, domestic non-sparkling water stood as by far the biggest single segment of the U.S. packaged water business. Domestic non-sparkling water’s 13.7 billion gallons represented 95.2 percent of total volume in 2019. During the recessionary years for 2008 and 2009, domestic nonsparkling saw slower volume reductions than the overall market and then outperformed it again in 2010. It moved very slightly slower than the total market in following years, including 2019. 16 • BWR • WWW.BOTTLEDWATER.ORG

four grew. Throughout most of the 1990s and 2000s, the retail premium segment—consisting of still water in single-serve PET bottles—propelled the overall category’s development. Indeed, the PET segment enlarged by a double-digit percentage rate 16 consecutive times through 2007. Growth slowed considerably in 2008 before it halted in 2009. Yet PET’s 0.9 percent reduction was far less than the 2.5 percent loss measured for bottled water volume as a whole. Moreover, 2009 PET volume of almost 5.2 billion gallons stood more than 4.1 billion gallons higher than it had in 1999, and its share of total bottled water swelled from 24 percent to more than 61 percent during that ten-year period. In 2010, PET experienced the strongest growth of any bottled water segment, advancing

by 6.8 percent to 5.5 billion gallons, which boosted its share above 64 percent. Growth slowed in 2011 but remained well in advance of the total market: volume greater than 5.8 billion gallons flowed from growth of 5.3 percent, which pushed PET’s share to 65 percent. In 2012, the segment saw its strongest showing since 2007, increasing by more than 8 percent to 6.3 billion gallons, which represented 66 percent of the overall market. Greater than 6 percent growth in 2013 pushed volume up to nearly 6.7 billion gallons—essentially two-thirds of the total. In 2014, the segment advanced at an even greater rate than in 2012, catapulting volume above 7.2 billion gallons and market share to 67.5 percent. Still another year of acceleration in 2015 drove PET volume to nearly 7.9 billion gallons and share to more than 68 percent. In 2016, the single-serve segment enlarged by more than 9 percent to reach 8.6 billion gallons, which gave it still more market share. PET volume slowed in 2017, but with volume of close to 9.2 billion gallons, the segment still accounted for close to 70 percent of U.S. bottled water volume, a share it held onto in 2018, when volume approached 9.7 billion gallons. In 2019, the segments share did climb above 70 percent as volume exceeded 10 billion gallons for the first time. Retail bulk volume experienced some reversals as consumers frequently opted for convenient PET multipacks in large format retail channels instead of larger sizes. Its share fell from nearly one-quarter of the category volume at the beginning of the century to 8.1 percent by 2019, largely due to competition from PET. After several declines, the

Although starting from a small base, both imported and sparkling bottled water grew in 2019. segment did grow each year from 2011 to 2018, but, in 2019, retail bulk volume saw a minute (0.1 percent) reduction in volume. Like retail bulk, direct delivery faced competition from PET bottles. The segment, which was the largest of them all as recently as the mid-1990s, accounted for less than 10 percent of total volume by 2019. U.S. home and office delivery (HOD) volume slipped from close to 1.4 billion gallons in the early 2000s to around 1.2 billion gallons a few years later, but it again stood at 1.4 billion gallons again in 2019, when volume enlarged by 0.4 percent. The comparatively small, mostly regional vending segment consisting of refillable jug containers saw some growth even when total bottled water volume did not. Its low cost during economic difficulties undoubtedly had something to do with vending’s positive results. It continued to grow in 2019, but at a slower pace (0.5 percent) than the domestic still water market or the bottled water market as a whole, though it did outperform both retail bulk and HOD, and very well may do so again in 2020. JUL/AUG 2020 • BWR • 17


Imports and sparkling—the two segments outside the domestic non-sparkling space—grew in 2019, but both slowed down from the preceding year yet still registered faster growth than any domestic non-sparkling segment as well as the overall market. Imported water, the smallest segment of them all, is prone to fluctuations. In the 2000s, it registered double-digit percentage growth in some years, and equally sizeable contractions in others. After one of those up years in 2007, imported water’s volume fell sharply in 2008 and then plummeted precipitously in 2009. It continued to shrink in 2010 before moving up again in 2011. In 2012, imports notched their first double-digit growth rate since 2007. Growth rates remained at similarly high levels for a few years until 2017, when imported volume enlarged by 9.2 percent. Growth cooled to less than 7 percent in 2018 and less than 5 percent in 2019. Sparkling water

held a small share of bottled water volume but grew it at an even more explosive rate than imports, let alone retail PET, for several years, and 2019 was no exception, though the year’s double-digit growth rate was much lower than 2018’s. Domestic non-sparkling water accounted for almost all per capita bottled water consumption in 2019. Sparkling water volume worked out to about 1.3 gallons per person. (With imports, the figure translated into a little more than four-fifths of a gallon per U.S. resident.) In the key PET portion, average intake moved from 16.9 gallons in 2009 to 30.7 gallons a decade later. In terms of retail sales, single-serve PET was by far the biggest part of the business with $25.1 billion or 72.5 percent of the total. Domestic non-sparkling of all types together

2019 STATISTICS

Global bottled water consumption is estimated to have surpassed 111 billion gallons in 2019. Total consumption swelled by 4.3 percent, and per capita consumption of 14.4 gallons represented a gain of more than 3 gallons over the span of five years. accounted for nearly 83 percent of retail sales. Though domestic sparkling and imports represented comparatively small portions of bottled water volume, they have outsize shares due to their higher price points. For instance, while imported volume was less than 1 percent of the total, it garnered a share of retail sales of close to 11 percent.

International Developments Bottled water became a beverage industry phenomenon not only in the United States—which once ranked as the No.1 market in terms of volume—but also in just about every part of the world. Bottled water initially became a sizeable, mainstream commercial beverage category in Western Europe, where consumption of it has been part of many consumers’ longstanding habits. It later grew into a truly global beverage. Several Asian markets achieved strong growth to become major bottled water markets during the 2000s and 2010s. In fact, Asia itself became the largest regional market in 2011, edging out North America and easily outshining Europe. After having moved ahead of Mexico to claim the No.2 position in 2012, China surpassed the United States to take the lead in 2013. By 2019, China accounted for more than one-quarter of the world’s bottled water volume. Global bottled water consumption is estimated to have surpassed 111 billion gallons in 2019, according to data

Building on its remarkable history of growth, bottled water is expected to put still more distance between itself and carbonated soft drinks.

from the latest edition of Beverage Marketing’s The Global Bottled Water Market. Total consumption swelled by 4.3 percent during the year. Per capita consumption of 14.4 gallons represented a gain of more than 3 gallons over the span of five years. Inevitably, per capita consumption by individual country or region differs greatly from the global average. For instance, several Western European countries have per capita consumption levels far above 25 gallons, and the No.1 market had average intake of almost 74 in 2019. Simultaneously, much of the developing world, where the majority of the world’s population resides, finds its per capita consumption figures still in the single-digit range. While the global per capita consumption figure can obscure significant regional variations, bottled water’s international growth indicates demand for it in all types of markets. Consumers have shown an enthusiasm for it in well developed markets, in less developed ones, and in economies in transition. Bottled water synced with various consumer trends around the globe. In developed countries, such as the United States and Canada, bottled water became a particularly dynamic major commercial beverage category by registering as an attractive option for health-conscious consumers. Marketers positioned bottled water as a virtuous alternative to carbonated soft drinks and fruit juice drinks (some of which comprise sizeable portions of their own product portfolios). In the developed world, some people viewed bottled water as not only a way of achieving hydration but also as a functional beverage. Simultaneously, bottled water serves at least a partial solution to the problem of often-unsafe water found in many economically developing countries. North America contains two of the three largest individual bottled water markets with the United States and Mexico, which together represented close to 22 percent 20 • BWR • WWW.BOTTLEDWATER.ORG

of the world’s packaged water market in 2019. The U.S. bottled water market had been a catalyst for much of the global expansion up until the mid-2000s, and its ongoing growth continues to contribute to the overall market’s enlargement. Its compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6 percent for the five-year period ending with 2019 was identical to the CAGR achieved by the global market in the same timeframe. Mexico alone accounted for nearly 9 percent of the global volume with 9.7 billion gallons in 2019. With a five-year CAGR of 4.1 percent, however, it grew much more slowly than either the United States or the world market. Besides the United States, China was the only other country that could claim a double-digit share of global volume with more almost 29.6 billion gallons and a percentage of the total market higher than the combined shares of the second and third largest markets in 2019. Chinese bottled water volume enjoyed double-digit percentage growth rates for several consecutive years and did so again in the period from 2014 to 2019, when it saw a CAGR of 10.2 percent—the highest rate among the ten biggest bottled water markets. Fourth-place Indonesia moved more slowly than China but well ahead of the international market, as did India, the No.3 Asian market and No.5 overall. Thailand also ranked as a top-10 bottled water market, but it lagged the global market as well as the larger Asian ones from 2014 to 2019. Though Europe can no longer claim to have any of the biggest bottled water markets, it does have several major ones, including three of the ten biggest. These are firmly established markets, meaning their growth tends to be slower than those where bottled water has less of a foothold. Some of the most prominent continental countries experienced only very slight growth. For example, during the five-year period ending with 2019, Italy’s volume grew


2019 STATISTICS by a CAGR of 2.2 percent. Germany, the ninth largest bottled water market in the world, had a CAGR of just 0.8 percent, and tenth-place France recorded a CAGR of 1.7 percent. As a group, the trio of leading European bottled water markets accounted for 8 percent of the world’s total volume in 2019—less than the share Indonesia held on its own. Packaging preference. Plastic packaging is preferred over glass in almost every country. Even in Germany and other countries, such as the United Kingdom, where glass has a strong presence, PET is the most dynamic and rapidly growing segment. HOD still accounts for a minority of global bottled water sales. Yet it is a vital segment in many countries, such as Mexico, where it accounts for a majority of the volume. Per capita consumption. Mexico regularly leads the world in bottled water per capita consumption, and that remained the case even after China surpassed it (and all other countries) in absolute volume. Average intake in Mexico went from 64.2 gallons in 2014 to 73.7 gallons five years later. Per capita consumption in China stood significantly lower, at 20.8 gallons, in 2019. The former leader in average intake, Italy, consumed the equivalent of 53.3 gallons per person in 2019, which put in third place behind Thailand, which in 2014 consumed the equivalent of 49.1 gallons per person but had upped average intake to 61.4 gallons by 2019. Some Middle Eastern markets rank exceptionally high in per capita bottled water consumption. With the equivalent of more than 31.7 gallons for each resident in 2019, Saudi Arabia had the twelfth highest level of bottled water consumption in the world. In addition to Saudi Arabia, the Middle East region had the United Arab Emirates in the top 20 in per capita bottled water consumption. At slightly more than 20 gallons per resident, both Kuwait and Lebanon also consume bottled water at rates greater than the global average, though neither made it onto the 2019 top-20 list. Although Europe no longer held the top spot in volume per capita, nearly half of the top 20 bottled water consumers on a per person basis were European countries as of 2019. The consumers of the combined market of Belgium-Luxembourg imbibed more than 35 gallons each, a rate that tended to inch upward over the years. Germany, France, Spain, Hungary, and Italy were the other European countries with per capita consumption greater than 30 gallons. French consumers quaffed 2.4 gallon more bottled water in 2019 than they had five years earlier. In 2019, Germany and Spain had per capita consumption rates of 38.1 gallons and 36.3 gallons, respectively, putting them

in sixth and eighth place in terms of average bottled water intake. Like France, both Germany and Spain consumed more bottled water per person in 2019 than they had five years before. Hungary, which ranked tenth, also increased its bottled water consumption. Other European markets among the top 20 were Greece, Portugal, Romania, and Poland. Though Asian nations attained prominence among the world’s bottled water markets when measured in total volume, the most populous countries generally do not have high per-person intake levels. The Chinese special administrative region (SAR) of Hong Kong made the list for the first time as its average intake approached 22 gallons in 2009 and continued to increase per capita consumption subsequently, climbing to 30.3 gallons in 2019. Despite its position as the largest market, mainland China did not rank among the top-20 markets in per capita consumption in 2019, although intake had climbed above the global norm by that point. Americans’ 2019 per capita bottled water consumption put the United States in the No.4 position among the countries of the world, right behind Italy but ahead of France.

Looking Ahead Beverage Marketing anticipates that bottled water will continue reshaping the U.S. multiple beverage marketplace, enlarging its market share in the process. The overall amount of liquid Americans annually drink will remain steady, resulting in total volume growth in line with population increases. Bottled water is on track to grow faster (though more slowly than it did in recent years), unlike carbonated soft drinks or fruit beverages, which will, in all probability, lose share points. Other major beverage categories, such coffee and tea, are expected to grow but do so more slowly than bottled water. Building on its remarkable history of growth, bottled water will likely put still more distance between itself and carbonated soft drinks, the former leading category. Of course, uncertainty characterizes the immediate future, as the full magnitude of the havoc caused by the COVID-19 crisis remains unknown. BWR

2020 IBWA BUYERS' GUIDE 22 • BWR • WWW.BOTTLEDWATER.ORG


IF YOU’RE IN THE BOTTLED WATER BUSINESS, THIS IS THE ONLY LIST OF SUPPLIERS YOU’LL EVER NEED! This year has been unique in many ways, not the least of which is the fact that numerous trade shows planned for the first half of 2020 that cater to the bottled water industry were canceled following stay-at-home orders implemented by many states trying to flatten the curve on the spread of COVID-19. So, perhaps more than ever, IBWA’s Buyers’ Guide can be the resource you turn to when looking to connect with suppliers that are knowledgeable about the bottled water industry. The 2020 Buyers’ Guide presents a list of IBWA supplier members and the innovative and essential products/services they offer. IBWA suppliers are invaluable to this association. They show their commitment to this industry by not only paying membership dues but also, and most importantly, actively participating on IBWA committees. IBWA supplier members invest in learning about the issues bottled water bottlers face—and then strive to find ways to help you overcome those challenges.

How COVID-19 Is Reshaping State Legislator Agendas By J.P. Toner, IBWA Director of Government Relations

Only a few months ago, most states had just opened their 2020 sessions, and legislators were considering a ton of issues. Topics of interest to the bottled water industry included recycled content mandates, groundwater management, taxes, extended producer responsibility, and plastic restrictions. All of those concerns were poised to come up for debate, and IBWA was 52 • BWR • WWW.BOTTLEDWATER.ORG

closely monitoring and constructing our legislative strategies when…well, we all know what happened. Recent major events—such as 9/11 and the Great Recession of 20082009—affected the states greatly, but the economic and social influence of this pandemic reaches another level. With those previous crises, some states recovered quickly or never felt

a significant impact. The COVID-19 pandemic, however, is sparing no one. Businesses have been forced to shut down, and states are struggling to maintain any type of sound fiscal standing. Every government official has wrestled with the dilemma of when to reopen states to capture tax revenue but also keep citizens safe.


GOVERNMENT RELATIONS The Cost of a Pandemic For state officials dealing with national emergencies, the first concern is the safety and well-being of citizens. The No.1 priority is to do everything possible to control the spread of the virus. But what happens when action on that issue conflicts with the fiscal well-being of the state? With COVID-19, state governments have implemented social distancing policies to help “flatten the curve." Millions of non-essential workers have been sent to the solitude of their home offices. For some businesses, COVID-19 has led to furloughs, layoffs, or permanent closures because payroll could not be met without an income. As states began paying out unemployment benefits, their ability to subsidize payouts with revenue diminished significantly. Many states that had finally recovered from the economic crashes of the Great Recession were now facing another hit to their state’s fiscal stability. States relying heavily on tourist dollars (oddly similar to the states hit hardest during the 2008 real estate crash) began to quickly see budget surpluses evaporate. Now, as many states seek a path to reopening, they are facing deficits in the billions while still having to address the needs of those impacted so drastically by the virus—both financially and physically. We can expect recovery to be the main focus during the coming months and 2021 legislative sessions. While the pandemic may subside, the costs will linger. Governors, legislators, regulators, and others will seek ways to be better prepared and nimble, in case a second wave of the novel coronavirus hits their states. But that can only occur with a solid financial footing—something states will need to address.

Not Business as Usual The landscape for Corporate America is changing and businesses are having to adapt to survive. The days of regular face-to-face meetings, business travel, and

EXPECT RECOVERY TO BE THE MAIN FOCUS FOR LEGISLATORS DURING THE COMING MONTHS AND 2021 SESSIONS. office settings are very likely to go the way of the 8-track player. (Am I dating myself?) Zoom meetings, virtual offices, and telecommuting are the new reality. How will the classic business model adapt to this and, if businesses don’t reconfigure will they continue to function? Businesses have made the well-being of their customers and employees a priority. Ensuring that workers who come into an office setting are healthy is now a major factor for any business. The question that remains is, how does a business measure that? In recent webbased video meetings with elected officials, questions have ranged from how to protect business from legal action, how to safeguard whistleblowers and their information, does a business have the right to take someone’s temperature, and, if they keep records on this, do regular health records privacy issues apply? To say this is all a bit complicated is a massive understatement—and any answers are still being developed.

A Surge in Demand and an Industry Response Initially, there was a run on bottled water that left many store shelves bare, yet home and office (HOD) sales struggled as offices paused or closed their accounts due to employees either working from home or being furloughed. As bottled water sales naturally increase in the summer months, bottlers have been working around the clock to ensure consumer demand is met. The work of the bottled water industry has been extraordinary:

keeping consumers and states in supply while again shining a light on the value of single-serving plastic products. Whether it is plastic bags or bottled water, the inherent safety of these products due to their design for a specific use has been embraced by consumers. How will this influence consumer choice post-pandemic? How does the bottled water industry wisely build reputation from the choices consumers have made during the pandemic? In addition to slowed HOD sales, our industry has experienced other negative impacts of the pandemic. The recycling systems that are so heav­ ily relied upon—and were already weakening—are beginning to crack. Redemption programs have seen a decline as consumers are wary about returning containers. Some states even temporarily suspended redemption at retail settings. That decision will greatly impact the ability of bottlers to move toward recycled content use due to supply shortages. We now have a golden opportunity for great ideas and game-changing innovations. The bottled water industry has been working tirelessly to prepare for the future and now it is here— sooner than we expected and with new requirements and demands. These next few years will be vital in supporting the growth of the industry through vision, modernization, and advancement. IBWA will be here to help your business thrive in this new economy.

Tips and Resources to Help Consumers With Summertime Hydration By Chris Torres, IBWA Communications Coordinator

The arrival of the dog days of summer means the sun and heat are constant and, in some areas, relentless. While staying hydrated year-round is important, during the summer months it’s essential that we monitor our water intake to ensure we don’t get dehydrated. Healthy hydration is an important issue for all ages, but it’s especially important for older adults because as we age our thirst sensation decreases. Thus, seniors, or those who care for them, need to be extra vigilant 54 • BWR • WWW.BOTTLEDWATER.ORG

about ensuring water consumption is a priority during the summer months because heat-related illnesses (such as heat stroke and heat edema) are a bigger risk. But dehydration can affect everyone. “Stay hydrated” is a healthy message IBWA members should continue to share with our consumers— emphasizing the important role bottled water plays in that goal. Hopefully by press time, the COVID-19 concerns we’ve had will have lessened, and

we’ll be getting back to our on-thego lifestyles. When we do, we’ll want bottled water to be available where other packaged beverages are sold to help ensure we are able to meet our hydration needs. Ultimately, it doesn’t matter if you are playing in the sun or working in the shade, the summer heat can be oppressive and quickly lead to a state of dehydration. For the healthconscious, drinking sugar-filled sodas or juices isn’t an option. Nutritionists


COMMUNICATIONS agree that water is the best hydration choice because it is calorie-free and doesn’t contain any sugar, caffeine, or other additives. Below are some healthy hydration messages you’ll want to share with your consumers this summer.

Make Bottled Water Your Sidekick When COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, more of us will be on the go. Taking bottled water with you is a great way to ensure you keep properly hydrated. Whether you’re stepping out to the store or taking a walk around the neighborhood, bottled water’s convenient packaging makes it easy to keep healthy hydration “handy.” If you’re at home, having a water cooler is one way to ensure you don’t run out of safe and refreshing bottled water—and always keep a glass of water within arm’s reach. Sipping water throughout the day is a great way to help meet your water consumption goal. Because when we sleep we become dehydrated, it’s also a good idea to keep a bottle or glass of water on your nightstand in case you feel thirsty in the middle of the night or for a quick sip first thing the next morning.

Monitor Your Urine Color An easy way to keep an eye on your hydration level during the day is to monitor your urine color. It’s simple: the lighter your urine color, the better. If your urine looks canary yellow or darker, you likely need to hydrate more. A urine color chart was developed by Lawrence E. Armstrong, PhD, a trustee of the Drinking Water Research Foundation and professor emeritus of physiology from the University of Connecticut. His chart features eight colors people can use to assess their hydration status, find it here: www. hydrationcheck.com/ucc.php. The website explains how to check your urine score,

and what to do if you measure as “slightly dehydrated” or worse.

Don’t Forget Your Fruits and Vegetables Drinking water isn’t your only source for hydration throughout the day. There’s also water in the foods you likely eat during the summer. In fact, fruits and vegetables consist of mostly water. If you’re eating them as a snack or as a side to your meals, that water counts toward your daily intake goal. The popular EatThisNotThat website recently published a list of 23 waterrich, hydrating foods; view that list at www.eatthis.com/hydrating-foods.

#HydrationFastFacts IBWA offers members a handy resource they can use to help educate their customers and social media followers about the hydration benefits of water consumption: the #HydrationFastFacts campaign. IBWA developed this social media event to highlight the science that supports the fact that water is the best choice for healthy hydration. The #HydrationFastFacts can be found at www.bottledwater.org/hydrationfastfacts. IBWA members can use these posts as-is or review them for inspiration and create your own fact-based social media posts.

Emergencies or Natural Disasters It’s important to keep bottled water on hand in case of emergencies or natural disasters, particularly if you live in an area prone to hurricanes. (Editorial note: Hurricane season lasts from June 1 through November 30.) Including bottled water in your emergency kit also helps out when the local tap water supply is contaminated and boil alerts are issued. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recommends storing 1 gallon of water per person,

CONSUMERS NEED TO BE REMINDED ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF HEALTHY HYDRATION— EVEN IN THE SUMMER. per day, for at least 3 days in case of a hurricane or other emergency that can cause a contamination of municipal water supplies. FEMA advises that commercially purchased bottled water is the safest, most reliable emergency drinking water for such an event.

Remember to Recycle Throughout the summer, it’s important to consistently remind your customers about the importance of keeping adequately hydrated. It’s also vital that IBWA members remind our consumers that, no matter if they're at home or on the go this summer, bottled water containers are made to be recycled. IBWA’s Put It In The Bin website (putitinthebin.org) has several social media toolkits that focus on the fact that bottled water containers are 100-percent recyclable—including the caps. IBWA members are invited to use Put It In The Bin posts on their social platforms to help educate consumers on the importance of recycling. When all is said and done, the main takeaways you want people to remember are simple: #DrinkMoreWater. #AlwaysRecycle.

COVID-19 PANDEMIC

IBWA Partnerships Help Members Conduct Business During COVID-19 Pandemic By Bob Hirst, Senior Vice President of Education, Science, and Technical Relations

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, IBWA has been working hard to make sure that our members have the information they need to conduct business during this crisis. Our communications have included frequent email bulletins to members to ensure they are aware of U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requirements and statements about food facilities and COVID-19. Provided below, I detail our involvement with numerous groups that are actively working with the government, food and agriculture, and transportation sectors 56 • BWR • WWW.BOTTLEDWATER.ORG

to ensure IBWA members have up-todate information about the virus and its impact on your businesses.

IBWA Contacts Ensure Work Continues The American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) is the organization through which food and transportation sectors meet. IBWA has worked with ALAN during several emergencies, including hurricane and mass flooding events. ALAN coordinates the logistics of getting food and other supplies to needed locations. During the COVID-19 crisis,

COVID-19 EXPLAINED Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that can cause illnesses such as the common cold, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS). In 2019, a new coronavirus was identified as the cause of a disease outbreak that originated in China. That virus, the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), causes a disease called coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic.


TECHNICAL UPDATE ALAN collected a list of needs from the food and transportation sectors and forwarded them to their contacts in the federal government. ALAN was instrumental in lobbying states to reverse orders to close rest areas along key interstate routes, so truck drivers had access to the facilities. Another way IBWA receives updates on food and beverage needs and issues during a crisis is through our membership with the Food and Agriculture Sector Coordinating Council (FASCC), which interfaces with the Government Sector Coordinating Council (GSCC). First established after 9/11, the councils provide IBWA access to FDA, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) intelligence. We have worked together through numerous events, now including the COVID-19 crisis. During our weekly conference calls with the councils, IBWA (along with other FASCC members) conveys our industry status and makes known our needs for continuity. IBWA is also a longtime participant in the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) National Business Emergency Operations Center (NBEOC), which coordinates FEMA’s emergency supply lines with producers and areas of need. NBEOC includes other agencies, such as the CDC, on conference calls, so participants can receive firsthand information on the status of COVID-19 in regions of the United States. Another food industry connection IBWA uses to get information from FDA is the Food and Beverage Industry Alliance (FBIA). Most major food and beverage trade associations belong to FBIA, and we work together on issues impacting our respective members. FBIA has been engaged in several specific issues regarding our combined industries’ reaction to COVID-19, including a joint letter sent to the Trump Administration and all state

governors urging that food and beverage manufacturers be considered critical to federal and state infrastructure and that they should be exempt from local gathering bans and curfews. FBIA continues to be a resource for IBWA and its members as the COVID-19 emergency continues. IBWA has also been obtaining COVID-19 information to share with members through our memberships with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers’ (NAM) Council of Associations. The Chamber has scheduled several online meetings for trade associations to review guidance issued by groups such as the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and DHS’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). And we’ve been able to share any pertinent COVID-19 information from NAM on to IBWA members via our regular email bulletins and our COVID-19 webpage (www.bottledwater. org/COVID-19-information-resources).

Planning for the Future While the bottled water industry has always been prepared to assist during crisis situations, the COVID-19 pandemic has still taught us lessons about operating under less than ideal conditions. IBWA members may recall that during past IBWA seminar road shows we discussed food safety and defense plans, and those discussions covered pandemic planning and continuity of operations plans (CoOPs). Member companies that developed such plans have hopefully been able to implement them to minimize the impact of the current pandemic on their businesses. For those that have not yet written such plans, it may be time to get it done. The DHS published a guidance document for pandemic planning several years ago, which you can find at bit.ly/DHS_pandemicplanning.

NEED HELP? Is your company having trouble carrying out your daily work as a part of the food and agriculture critical infrastructure sector? Please advise Bob Hirst (bhirst@bottledwater.org), as IBWA may be able to assist you. IBWA has worked with our partner organizations on many COVID-19 related issues, including reopening highway rest areas for truck drivers, shortages of sanitizing chemicals, and what to do if an employee tests positive for COVID-19. IBWA’s COVID-19 webpage also offers general information about business operations during the pandemic and provides links to helpful resources (such as updates on state business closures and openings): www.bottledwater.org/ COVID-19-information-resources.

The bottled water industry was designated long ago as a part of the nation’s critical food and agriculture infrastructure. During this pandemic, you have witnessed the White House invoking the Defense Production Act (DPA) to require certain industries to continue operations to produce critical medical devices (ventilators) and foods (meats). If the bottled water industry is affected in ways that those industries have been affected, the federal government may require the bottled water industry to remain operational during national emergencies. Companies should be prepared with a pandemic plan and a CoOP. Assistance for developing CoOPs may be found at www.ready.gov/business-continuity-plan. The bottled water industry has always risen to the challenges placed before us in times of human need. Pandemics have, up to this point in the industry’s history, been rare and had little impact on the nation’s health. It is time for us to meet this new challenge just as we have met other challenges in the past—with robust planning. JUL/AUG 2020 • BWR • 57

BOTTLED WATER CONTAINER RECYCLING INCREASES 2.5%

IBWA’s annual water bottle recycling rate study, which is produced by NAPCOR, reports that, for the first time in several years, the recycling rate for bottled water containers has increased, and significantly at that: 2.5 percent. To keep this momentum going, IBWA members need to continue educating consumers about the importance of recycling their bottled water containers.
