In particular, the isotonic drinks segment in Mexico is the largest in Latin America, with total sales greater than 552 million dollars and a sales volume that exceeded 426 million liters, both figures corresponding to 2020, according to the same source.

The sales volume in this segment registered a compound annual growth rate of 1.2% during the period from 2015 to 2020.

Mexico has one of the largest soft drink, non-carbonated beverages and jug industries in the world, with a market that exceeded 25.58 billion dollars in 2019.

As for the sale of jugs in Mexico, this exceeded 1,750 million dollars in 2020 and a sales volume of 23,700 million liters in 2020.

This is mainly due to the characteristics of Mexico, including the poor quality of tap water, population growth and income levels, which have resulted in a higher consumption of jugs of water.

The water jug ​​segment in Mexico has consolidated significantly, from small vendors and informal vendors to larger companies, with regional or national coverage and recognized brands.
