The market for Non-Alcoholic Drinks is structured into retail sales for at home consumption and on-premise or foodservice sales for out-of-home consumption. The at-home market, also called off-trade market, covers all retail sales via super- and hypermarkets, convenience stores or similar sales channels. The out-of-home market, also called on-trade market, away-from-home market or HORECA encompasses all sales to hotels, restaurants, catering, cafés, bars and similar hospitality service establishments. Both the at-home and the out-of-home market are valued at retail selling prices including all sales and consumption taxes. The valuation of the out-of-home segment at retail prices means a significant change of the market definition in comparison to earlier iterations of the Consumer Market Outlook, as out-of-home consumption was valued at wholesale prices before. This means, market totals are not comparable to published data from prior years. The price per unit always references liters as a base unit for both at-home and out-of-home consumption.

Powdered drink mixes and syrups (e.g. Post-Mix Drinks)
Growing awareness for health and wellness has put pressure on the sugared mainstays of the non-alcoholic drinks business: carbonated soft drinks, such as cola beverages and lemonades. Spending is shifting towards healthier, less-sugared products like bottled water and artificially sweetened Soft Drinks. A stable pillar of the industry is the food service market as roughly two out of five US$ spent globally on non-alcoholic drinks are attributable to consumption away from home.
The data encompasses B2C enterprises. Figures are based on total consumer spending on Non-Alcoholic Drinks, which comprises all private household spending on Non-Alcoholic Drinks including at-home, out-of-home, as well as online and offline spendings.
