Spirits & Wine Sector

The World's Leading Non-Alcoholic Drinks Companies ranked by revenues

#1 #2
Coca Cola Company PepsiCo

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.

Nestle Suntory Beverage

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 added Lucozade and Ribena in 2013.

Keurig Dr Pepper Danone

Keurig Dr Pepper was formed in 2018 by the merger of US coffee company Keurig Green Mountain with what was previously Dr Pepper Snapple Group, the global #3 in carbonated soft drinks. It is owned by JAB Holdings, the investment group that also owns Jacobs Douwe Egberts.

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.

Kirin Red Bull

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.

Master Kong Asahi

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.

Unilever is the global leader in tea-based beverages, both hot and cold. The jewel in its portfolio is Lipton, the world's top-selling tea brand. It also owns a huge collection of local brands including PG Tips, Brooke Bond, Red Label, Bushells and Saga.
