Hispanic expenditures on non-alcoholic beverages continue to grow at a healthy pace. The challenge for brands in the different categories is to promote trial as Hispanics may not proactively do so due to their satisfaction with the beverages they currently drink. As the markets mature and become fragmented, brands have two options to grow: either competing through price to gain market share, or widen the association of their brands to other occasions in order to grow their market.
