Bottled water is purified drinking water packed in glass bottles and food-grade plastic that is intended for human consumption. It is generally treated using ultraviolet (UV) irradiation technology before packaging to eliminate the growth of pathogenic organisms during storage and transportation, which makes it completely free from impurities. It contains an adequate amount of total dissolved solids (TDS), dissolved minerals, and additional nutrients compared to regular water. Besides this, it offers more enhanced purity, quality, taste, and safety than normal water. At present, bottled water is available in different varieties, including still, carbonated, flavored, mineral, and artesian, across the GCC region.

GCC Bottled Water Market Trends:

Apart from this, a significant rise in the number of tourists and pilgrims, coupled with the increasing expatriate community in the region, is increasing the sales of bottled water in the region. Additionally, the escalating consumer demand for carbonated bottled water alternatives to sugar-sweetened beverages are offering lucrative growth opportunities to manufacturers. Besides this, the expansion of hotels, restaurants, cafes, resorts and bars is catalyzing the demand for bottled mineral water.
