Published: May 19, 2016 | Pages: 16 | Publisher: Canadean | Industry: Beverages | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Summary
Despite a decline in volume in 2012, Japan's packaged water market saw a five-year CAGR between 2010 and 2015 of 5.75%. However, the growth of packaged water is expected to slow down over the next five years, so brand-owners in the category will need to innovate to maintain sales.
