    The distinct stages of an industry life cycle are: introduction, growth, maturity, and decline. The beverage industry is still in its growth stage. Now, prove that with facts and figures.

    I know what the stages are ,but what leads you to believe that the industry is still in the growth stage. Other than just thinking that. Because I thought so as well until analyzing revenue streams and gross margins across the board which made the picture much more resemble maturity than growth. Do you have an explanation for saying growth?

    Old products are evolving into something new, and new product ideas are being introduced all the time. V8 has gone from being a boring vegetable juice to being something entirely different and desirable. Four debuted in the United States market in 2005. It is now sold in 30 states and in Europe. Those are only two examples.

    Water has become something that is bottled, flavored, and a requirement throughout the day.
