Packaged Drinking Water

Bottled water is drinking water, carbonated water, mineral water, distilled water, spring water, artesian well water, or de-ionized water packaged in plastic bottles or glass bottles.

Carbonated water (also known as club soda, soda water, sparkling water, seltzer, or fizzy water) is water into which carbon dioxide gas under pressure has been dissolved, a process that causes the water to become effervescent.

Ultra filtration has smaller pores than used in micro filtration, can remove finer particles from the water and is capable of removing viruses also.

In India total market size of the bottled water is Rs 2000 crore, of this around Rs 1700 crore is in the hands of organized sector and the rest is with unorganized sector.
