The major competitor has been the Coca-Cola Company which takes the largest market share in the soft drink industry. Dr Pepper Snapple has also been gaining popularity in the US market and hence posing competition to PepsiCo in the soft drink. In order to increase its revenue, PepsiCo diversified its operations when it ventured in the snacks food industry.
Despite the measure, the increase in the popularity of Coca-Cola both in the local and international market has affected the Pepsi market share. Coca-Cola has continued to launch competitive programs to increase its market share and counter the competition from the Pepsi products. It is in the advent of the declining market share and stiff competition that this campaign has been devised to reverse the trends and retain the Pepsi market share.
