Soft Drinks Get a Big Boost in ‘07

The soda wars continue—and it’s all good news for Hispanic print. 2007 was a year of strong growth in the soft drink category. Overall spending increased from about 665,000 in ’06 to 1,055,000 in ’07, an increase of almost 60%.

Of course, the biggest players were Coke and Pepsi. Magazines were the preferred venue for the increased advertising, with Vista grabbing the lion’s share of spending, TV y Novelas EEUU trailing close behind, and Vanidades (US edition) a close third. Interesting to note is that the top three spots were all different from the previous year.

As good a year as 2007 was, 2008 looks to be even better: The 2008 Olympics will undoubtedly have a positive effect, as will the FIFA World Cup, both events having drawn substantial soft drink investment in the past.
