The soft drinks industry is one of the fastest-growing markets in the world. Soft drinks are any water-based flavored drink, a class of nonalcoholic beverages, and normally containing a natural or artificial sweetener, edible acids, natural or artificial flavors, and sometimes juice.

The “soft” in soft drinks is an adjective used in relation to a hard drink. The beverage is not soft like a pillow. Rather, it is nonalcoholic, unlike a hard drink, which is a distilled alcoholic beverage.

The global soft drinks market size was valued at USD 434.50 billion in 2022 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2022 to 2028. Rising disposal incomes, changing lifestyle, and a growing population is expected to promote market growth over the next few years.
Types of soft drinks include Lemon/lime/ Citrus drinks, Fizzy drinks, Soda, Cola, Tea, Ginger ale, Sparking and still water, Ginger and Root beer, etc.

Filters are used to protect soft drink processes and product quality. They prevent possible contaminants from entering the production system with ingredients. They also remove bacteria and other organisms that might enter the system from a variety of sources, even the environment.
