July 4, 2014 

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Bottled Water Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.

Bottled water is drinking water, which can be categorized as mineral water, still water, flavored water, and sparkling water. This is packaged in either plastic or glass bottles after purification. The water is obtained from various sources such as wells, springs, artesian wells, and the municipal water supply.

The two main forms of bottled water are still and sparkling water, that is, non-carbonated or carbonated. Still water is similar to normal tap water and does not have any carbonation. Sparkling water, also known as carbonated water, soda, seltzer water, and fizzy water, is water into which carbon dioxide is mixed under pressure, resulting in effervescence in the water. Nowadays, bottled water is becoming more and more popular across the globe.

The majority of consumers prefer bottled water as either their primary or only source of water; this is due to the perception that bottled water is safer than tap water. Recently, companies have also started branding bottled water to build an image for their brand and consumers are looking for brands that they consider more trustworthy than other unbranded bottled water products.
