"The increasing scarcity of safe drinking water, changing life styles and aggressive expansion by market players may lead this industry to be the next oil industry in coming decade," Motiwala, expressing optimism about the future of Indian bottled water market, said.
"Rising trend of bulk water consumption in homes and institutional segments will pave way for bulk water packs to acquire half of the total bottled water market within next 4-5 years," IKON senior consultant Taruna Sondarva said. "The major growth contributors will be the mushrooming of bulk water pack suppliers duo to less entry barriers to the industry," she said.

- Packaged drinking water, which holds about 85% of the market, is witnessing strong growth owing to various factors such as changes in life style, increase in Foreign Tourist Arrivals (FTAs), health awareness, etc. Natural mineral water on the other hand, which falls under the premium water segment and is primarily consumed by the urban populace owing to its high cost, will witness growth that will be restricted to urban consumers.
- The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) had formulated Indian Standard (IS) for packaged drinking water (PDW) and packaged natural mineral water (PNMW) under mandatory BIS certification as per Food Safety and Standards Regulation (FSS). This implementation led major players to acquire ISI and BIS certifications to avoid any cancellation of licenses.
