Among various types of products, flavored bottled water is gaining huge popularity among consumers in the UAE. There are various flavor combinations available in the market, such as lemon strawberry, cucumber, watermelon, mint, etc., to attract consumers. The increasing demand for flavored water in the UAE market is also attributed to the shift from soft and carbonated drinks, which is fueling the market growth.
