Per-Capita Bottled Water Consumption by Top Countries,1999–2010 (Liters per Person per Year)
Per-capita bottled water consumption is reported by the top 20 consuming countries for the years from 1997 to 2010, with data gaps. Data through 2007 and for 2010 comefrom the Beverage Marketing Corporation (BMC). Units are in liters per person per year. The greatest per-capita consumption occurs in the United Arab Emirates, Mexico, andItaly—all at over 200 liters per person per year. Data from 2009 for a subset of EuropeanUnion (EU) countries are also provided, courtesy of the European Federation of Bottled Waters and Canadean, as noted below. These data often agree, but sometimes disagreesubstantially, with the BMC data. Care should be taken in comparing them.
Data earlier than 1997 are not currently or consistently available. No distinction amongtypes of bottled water is provided, and such definitions may vary from country tocountry. As noted above, data through 2007 and for 2010 are provided by the BMC; the 2009 data for EU countries come from Canadean, through the European Federation of Bottled Waters. These two data sets are similar but have some notable differences,such as for Belgium, France, and Germany.

Water at work, an essential service for a healthy company!
Water coolers have integrated into all aspects of our working and home life from offices to workshops and construction sites to schools and hospitals. Today employers do not only provide water coolers as a means of fulfilling their legal duty to provide drinking water in the workplace, but they recognise the benefits derived from good hydration in the productivity and wellbeing of their staff.
