Current Market Trends: What’s The Impact On Beverage Bottling?

Consumers are looking for more than run-of-the-mill flavors. While classic flavors will always have a place in thirsty hearts and taste buds, consumers are searching for beverages that excite their palates and provide a unique flavor profile. To stay relevant, it’s critical that brands think outside of the box and embrace creativity when it comes to new flavor variations.

This increase in the need for bold and unexpected tastes comes from shifting consumer preferences. According to global data, the majority of consumers in the U.S. - 60 percent - consider themselves to be “foodies,” meaning that they are in search of premium, new and unique flavors in their food and beverage choices.

The Meteoric Rise Of The Flavor Industry

The flavor industry has seen unprecedented growth in recent years. Mordor Intelligence found that the global flavor market has exploded in size with no signs of slowing down, being valued at $16.4 billion in 2020 and expected to reach a staggering $20.5 billion by 2026.

Research from Technomic shows that 47 percent of consumers are more likely to visit a food or beverage establishment if they offer new or innovative flavors. This trend is particularly prominent among younger consumers, with 60 percent of Gen Z and 54 percent of Millennials reporting that they enjoy trying new flavors.

“We’re also seeing opportunities for more exotic flavor profiles,” says Jennifer Zhou, senior director of product marketing at food and beverage consumer research firm ADM. “Consumers are thirsting for new experiences and excitement, fueling a rise in global flavor profiles across applications.”

Zhou adds that “well-known regional flavors are being elevated in exciting combinations, like tropical cherry apricot and lychee coconut.” As customer preferences continue to trend towards the more adventurous, “‘familiar with a twist’ flavors provide a broad scope to engage with consumers.”

It’s clear that offering your consumers a unique experience that includes unexpected or uncommon flavors is the key to standing out in a crowded market. This is particularly true when it comes to younger consumers, from the Millennial and Gen Z generations.
