Soft Drinks were common preference among all the individuals, irrespective of their age groups as it had great brand value and great advertisement. Market Research is based on some underlying parameters like: •Changing consumption pattern
•Changing income levels
The study starts with determining the major players in the soft drinks, their overall consumption pattern among the people and ends up with the conclusion as per the state of mind of the average rational human being. Consumer preferences are changing towards healthier food, and thus such a trend will carry on for some time to come.
