Filling of beverages can be done cold, hot, ambient and cold-aseptic filling tomention the latest trend of beverage marketing and technology.The beverage is mainly categorized into two major categories based upon thealcoholic and nonalcoholic nature of the drink. Non-Alcoholic beverages are furthero two types based upon carbon content. These beverages contain Fruit juices,Coffee, Tea, Soda, Colas. The Alcoholic beverages are based upon the fruit contentand grain. It may be Wine, Brandy, Whisky or Beer.

  10. 10. Indian Beverage IndustryIndia has a population of more than 1.150 Billions which is just behind China.According to the estimates, by 2030 India population will be around 1.450 Billionand will surpass China to become the World largest in terms of population.Beverage Industry which is directly related to the population is expected to maintaina robust growth rate. The price stability throughout the year has contributed to theincrease in domestic liquor sales.The Indian beverage market offers hot options. According to Dabur, the fruitbeverages industry in India now stands at Rs 1100 crores (approx. Euro 180 million)and the market has grown at the rate of 30% where Dabur India, through the newlaunch Real Burst, is looking at establishing a market share of 4-5% in next 2-3years.Part of the industry of fast moving consumer goods is also the beverage industry.The total beverage industry in India is being estimated to grow at 17% this year,according to experts. "Food and beverages segment has not suffered despite theslowdown in the economy. FMCG in our stores has done very well. In fact, weregistered 10-15% growth in this segment last year," said a spokesperson atSpencers Retail Ltd.Beverage majors like Coca Cola India, for example, again reported growing sales.Coca-Cola in India reported a solid first quarter 2009 results not only despite achallenging economic environment, but also with unit case volume increasing by31%. And eight quarters out of the 11 quarters had a double-digit growth.To foreign observers of the market, these figures might sound unbelievable, asWestern markets are saturated and have not seen such figures for long time. But inIndia, various positive factors drive the beverage markets. One is the rising numberof people in the middle class with extra money to spend on new beverages likewine, new brands of imported whiskey, or the fancy energy drinks, some of whichare really good to enable people to work 10
  11. 11. longer, to listen longer during conferences, and even to party longer and have fun.Leader in this segment is Red Bull, but some other good and very effective drinks,one even very healthy are already or soon entering the market.Another factor is the sheer size of the number of people in India. Even the ruralhouseholds, as long as the monsoon is good, get purchasing power and canparticipate in consumer markets. Where ever the purchasing power is still not bigenough, companies offer smaller packs for Rs. 10 or Rs. 5, especially to be seen inthe snack market. Hot summers in India also help a bit to sell beverages.The large untapped market potential for store-bought non-alcoholic beverages, inparticular carbonated beverages, juice based drinks and energy or sports drinksamong urban/suburban consumers in India.Approximately 120 billion litres ofbeverages are consumed by Indians every year, but only 5% represent store-boughtpackaged beverages. The majority of Indian consumers (75%) still consume non-alcoholic store-bought beverages ‘less than once a day’, highlighting a largeuntapped market opportunity, particularly in the carbonated drinks and juice or juice-based categories (estimated to be worth $1.5 Billion and $.25 billion respectively). Inorder to increase consumption and penetration of such beverages manufacturerswill have to address the two primary reasons why some Indians abstain entirely, thatis, health concerns and undesirable taste.The study investigates consumption frequency and habits, the importance of variousproduct attributes, and brand preferences across age, household income, city inIndia and beverage category. This study has implications for manufacturers,distributors, retailers and investors hoping to capitalize on the growth of thesebeverage categories in India and distinguish themselves in the increasingly crowdedmarketplace.India is a booming market for the beverage industry as well. It already accounts forabout ten per cent of global beverage consumption today. This means that thecountry has the third-largest beverage consumption after the USA and China. Butthat is not the end of the road. Market analyses indicate that beverage sales in India 11
  12. 12. will be increasing by more than 60 per cent between 2008 and 2012. Since India is(still) a country of tea and coffee drinkers, packaged cold drinks have enormouspotential. Packaged water, beer, spirits and carbonated drinks are recording whatrates are in some cases high double-digit growth. All in all, annual per capitaconsumption of packaged beverages is supposed to triple from 2.6 litres in 2000 to8.7 litres in 2012.Demand for milk and milk-based beverages are also rising. India is the world’sbiggest producer and consumer of milk, since milk plays a major role in the Indiandiet. The consumption of milk and milk-based beverages has increased by anannual average of 2.7 per cent in the last four years and most of them (65 per cent)are sold “loose” / unpackaged.The proportion of the market accounted for by packaged milk and dairy products areincreasing, however. In the past four years, for example, demand for milk filled inpouches has grown by 4.5 per cent annually, while the figure for milk in cartons isabout 25 per cent. The rising consumption is making it necessary for appropriateinvestments to be made by the beverage industry.The sector is highly fragmented and 95 per cent of these producers have small orvery small operations. Of this, the health beverage industry is valued at $230 million.The Indian beverage industry faces over supply in segments like coffee and tea.However, more than half of this is available in unpacked or loose form. Indian hotbeverage market is a tea dominant market. Consumers in different parts of thecountry have heterogeneous tastes. Dust tea is popular in southern India, whileloose tea in preferred in western India. The urban-rural split of the tea market was51:49 in 2000. Coffee is consumed largely in the southern states. The size of thetotal packaged coffee market is 19,600 tonnes or $87 million.The total soft drink (carbonated beverages and juices) market is estimated at 284million crates a year or $1 billion. The market is highly seasonal in nature withconsumption varying from 25 million crates per month during peak season to 15million during offseason. The market is predominantly urban with 25 per cent 12
  13. 13. contribution from rural areas. Coca cola and Pepsi dominate the Indian soft drinksmarket. Mineral water market in India is a 65 million crates ($50 million) industry. Onan average, the monthly consumption is estimated at 4.9 million crates, whichincreases to 5.2 million during peak season.Key Features of Indian BeverageIndustry Indian Beverage Market CAGR[2007-2010]:21% India ranked 3rd in largest beverage consumption after the USA and China Total Indian Beverage Consumption every year:120 billion liters Fruit Beverages Market size: Rs 1100 crores (approx.

Due to the developingeconomic condition, there is increase in the competition among the manufacturers,retailers, dealers to promote their products at competitive prices.The increase in the India population has given a high demand of beverage marketproducts. The Indian beverage market is segmented into the two major segments –Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic Beverages.Again these categories of beverages are sub-divided into the carbonated and fruitbased drinks.Tea and Coffee also contributed majorly into the Beverage Industry.Indian Beveragemarket distribution and marketing channel is highly networked and has a veryapproach to the customers. Due to the globalization and technologicaldevelopments there is highly innovative products are coming into the IndianBeverage markets which are appreciated by the Indian population.In India, here are various forms of beverage market get to be seem in the form ofretailers, Restaurants, Coffee shops, Sport events, Hotels etc.There are certain factors which are driving developments into the IndianBeverage sector:• Economic growth• Population growth 14

  16. 16. Issues Related to Indian BeverageMarket.  Social IssuesFor the alcohol industry the social concerns are numerous, ranging from associateddisease as well as health and safety impacts from high levels of alcoholconsumption, to under-age drinking, and in developing country contexts the portionof spending on alcohol versus basic needs.Domestic violence and an exacerbation of poverty have made alcohol abuse thesingle most important problem for women in India.The report points out that as prosperity levels increase across Asia, we can expectto see increasing levels of alcohol consumption. This presents both an opportunityfor listed companies in Asia, but given the potential negative social impacts, it alsopresents significant challenges.Soft drink companies are advised to anticipate government regulations, particularlyin relation to their marketing approaches to children. Companies need to beinnovative in creating healthier soft drink products as in the case of PepsiCo andCoca Cola focusing on a low sugar, natural sweetener for their products andVietnamese and Chinese brands tapping into the demand for alternatives tocarbonated soft drinks.Companies should assess their supply chain risks and put inplace codes of conduct, monitoring and capacity building initiatives to prevent these.As consumers become more aware of supply chain issues, good supply chainmanagement can create a competitive advantage. 16
  17. 17. Companies that rely on agricultural supply chains, particularly large numbers ofsmall holding farmers, should look to developing partnerships with government,local NGOs and international agencies to better manage social risks.Governance IssuesA typical challenge in the Indian beverage sector’s fight against corruption is thecomplex interrelationship between politics and the private sector. Stronggovernance is clearly vital for companies to ensure the integrity of theirorganizations, relationships with consumers and government authorities to avoidcorrupt business practices.Companies should look to providing more transparency and accountability in termsof the selection of board members, remuneration, links between remuneration andperformance, diversity of the board and decision making processes.Alcohol companies should ensure a high level of transparency in terms of thefinancial support provided for industry groups that in turn lobby nationalgovernments for changes in alcohol policiesCompanies should put in place initiatives and get involved in collective action toraise corporate integrity, especially in relation to corruption and bribery. Environmental IssuesCompanies need to first assess to what extent they and their suppliers depend onwater and the associated risks. This should be done in consultation with keystakeholders.Companies need to realize that global commitments to improve water efficiency canonly be implemented locally, requiring versatility and local management support.Companies should disclose water performance and the initiatives that they areputting in place. Companies need to assess their contribution to climate change, put in placemeasures to reduce emissions and waste and report on progress. 17

ANALYSIS AND DISCUSSIONSGRAPH 1:200ML AVAILABILITY PACKWISE:DESCRIPTION: The availability is low because the retailers are not ready to keep200ml bottles because of two reasons, One they think that the Margins is low ascompare to 300ml RGB, secondly it’s the Price Factor as 200ml is to be sell at 8Rs,so 2 Rs change is a big problem. 45

  60. 60. FINDINGS60
  61. 61. FINDINGS• The all over availability of 200ml is very low.• The highest demand is in 500ml Pet in all flavors.• Coke covers the best market among all the flavors as it is the brand product of the company.• Kinley soda has many local and other competitors due to which it has low demand.• Juices has many other competitors like Tropicana and real with many flavors which lower down the demand as well as the availability. 61
  62. 62. CONCLUSIONS62
  63. 63. CONCLUSIONS• COKE is most popular amongst its users mainly because of its TASTE, BRAND NAME, INNOVATIVENESS Thus it should focus on good taste so that it can capture the major part of the market. In today’s scenario, customer is the king because he has got various choices around him. If you are not capable of providing him the desired result he will definitely switch over to the other provider. Therefore to survive in this cutthroat competition, you need to be the best. Customer is no more loyal in today’s scenario, so you need to be always on your toes. We feel that there is cutthroat competition between COKE & PEPSI so to be on top of mind of the customers they need to do something outstanding every time.• The best thing that consumers like about the Coca cola brand is their promotions and availability. Suggestions are given by the consumers to improve the quality of the product and to reduce price of its different packaging.• Because of increasing health awareness, some consumers do not like drinking sparkling drinks and prefer juice drinks.• Coca Cola is more famous for its sparkling drinks. In the previous few years it has come up with juice drinks, energy drinks, tea and coffee. Some of these products are popular among consumers whereas the rest still have to be accepted by the consumers. 63
  65. 65. RECOMMENDATIONSThis is one of the most important and most difficult part of the study. I arrived atcertain recommendations for COCA-COLA co India after the analysis of the data.Some of the important recommendations are as follows. • Many complains of retailer does not listen by the company. So it should be taken into consideration. • Company does not provide all stock. So it should be delivered on time as well as much required by the retailer. • Some Retailers wants large size of visi coolers. So this should be also taken into consideration. • Customer grievances are also not properly listened by merchandiser which effects hold of the customer with the company. • We need to come up with more pack sizes because RGB is losing its market. • As already mentioned Visi-coolers are a major reason of dissatisfaction among the retailers. The periodical maintenance check of Visi-coolers should be done. • We need to come with more flavors because Real Juices and Tropicana Juices are leading the market with 12-15 flavors. 65
  66. 66. • We need to focus on margins because retailers go their where they get high margins on product.• We must visit all RED outlets where the activation elements are missing and it must be activated immediately.• The company should make hindrance free arrangement for its customers to make any feedback or suggestions.• The visibility of any product plays an important role in making the customer, aware about it and is vital for the growth and development of any product.• A strong watch should be kept on distributors also, because in some cases they are found to be cheating the retailers and affecting the goodwill of the BRAND. 66
