Research and Markets announced the addition of “Bottled Water in Italy” to their offering. After the striking growth in sales seen in 2003, sales of soft drinks in Italy performed rather disappointingly in 2004.
The short and cool summer in 2004 contrasted greatly with the very long and hot summer of 2003. These particularly unfavorable climatic conditions, together with continuing economic difficulties, greatly influenced the whole Italian soft drink market. As a result, in 2004 there was a general decline in sales of soft drinks across all sectors.
