Market definition

The juices market consists of the retail sale of 100% fruit juice (from concentrate), 100% fruit juice (not from concentrate), nectar (30%-99% juice), fruit drinks (0-29% juice), and vegetable juice. The market is valued according to retail selling price (RSP) and includes any applicable taxes. According to MarketLine Industry Profile report; Juice in the United States, September 2013, “Any currency conversions used in the creation of this report have been calculated using constant 2012 annual average exchange rates”

This industry primarily sells smoothies and fresh-made juices. A smoothie is a blended, sometimes sweetened beverage primarily made from fresh fruit or vegetables combined with ice. They may contain chocolate, honey, syrup, milk, yogurt or ice cream and have a milkshake-like consistency thicker than slush drinks. Some juice and smoothie bars offer add-ins, like soymilk, whey powder, green tea and herbal or nutritional supplements. Revenue from other beverage and food sales is included.
