The Top 10 Soft Drinks Companies Worldwide in 2013

  #1 #2 #3 #4 #5  
Coca Cola Company PepsiCo Nestle Suntory Dr Pepper Snapple

The Coca-Cola Company is the world's biggest drinks company, controlling more than half the global market in carbonated soft drinks as well as a substantial chunk of the somewhat larger non-carbonated segment, as a result of secondary brands such as Dasani, Minute Maid and Innocent.

PepsiCo's biggest business is snacks, but it remains the global #2 in soft drinks. Its heritage Pepsi brand is actually outgrossed in sales by a broad portfolio that also includes sports drink Gatorade, Tropicana and a large collection of international other fruit juices and Aquafina bottled water. In addition to its substantial foods portfolio and Nescafe coffee, Nestle is the world leader in bottled water. Its Nestle Pure Life is the global #1 in its sector, supported by a portfolio of premium brands including Perrier, Vittel, Poland Spring and Buxton. In addition to its whisky and beer businesses, Suntory is Japan's largest home-grown soft drinks company. Its portfolio is led by Boss RTD coffee and the local Pepsi license. Suntory moved into Europe with the purchase of Orangina Schweppes and agreed to buy GSK's Lucozade and Ribena in 2013. Dr Pepper Snapple is the third biggest marketer of carbonated soft drinks after Coke and Pepsi, Spun off in 2008 from what was then Cadbury Schweppes, it now operates solely in North America and the Caribbean. Its title brands are supported by a large portfolio of other drinks.

Danone Kirin Red Bull Master Kong Asahi
Danone is the global #2 in bottled water, very strong in its core market of Europe but less dominant elsewhere. Global brands Evian, Volvic and Badoit are supported by regional products including Indonesia's Aqua and Dannon in the US.

Though best-known for its beer, Kirin also controls a collection of soft drinks in Japan including Fire coffee and the local license for Tropicana. It is also one of the biggest drinks companies in Australia, and the owner of Pura milk and Berri juice.

First introduced in Asia in the 1960s, Red Bull started a revolution in the global soft drinks market in the 1990s. Since its arrival in the West in 1987, the sickly sweet stimulant has carved out a whole new niche of "energy drinks", which it still leads ahead of Coke, Pepsi and others.    Master Kong, owned by Tingyi Holdings, is one of China's biggest food & drink brands, as well as the local licensee for Pepsi. It is the clear local leader in RTD teas with more than 50% market share, as well as the #1 in bottled water (and instant noodles), and #2 in fruit juice.  Like Kirin, Asahi is best-known as a brewer, but also manages the #2 soft drinks business in Japan, with brands including Wonda coffee, Mitsuya Cider and Calpis. It also has strong presence in Australia as Pepsi's local licensee and owner of Cottee's, Schweppes and Solo.
