Coca-Cola,the US-based beverage giant across the globe, recently stated that India is the fourth largest market globally for premium bottled water brand 'SmartWater' while announcing its results for the third quarter. According to the recent reports India, China, and Southeast Asia drove the volume growth for Coca-Cola in the Asia Pacific region where unit case volume rose by 4 percent during the third quarter of 2019.

Earlier this year the company has leveraged its framework to successfully grow SmartWater in Asia, especially in India, now it has become the second-largest premium water brand in the market since its initial launch in 2018. "India is now the fourth-largest market globally for the SmartWater brand, with a target to be in 90,000 outlets by the end of 2019," said Coca-Cola.
