Energy Drinks Market Segment Analysis - by Type
Energy Drinks Market based on type can be further segmented into Caffeinated and Decaffeinated beverages. Caffeinated Beverages held a dominant market share in 2021. Caffeine is by far the most primitive and commonly used product in energy drinks owing to its stimulant nature to increase alertness and energy. Furthermore, label claims allow the category to hold a strong share. For example, leading brands promote energy drinks as functional drinks to boost energy and reduce daily stress, whilst improving concentrations to improve work efficiency. Owing to the following claims brand such as Red Bull and Monster continue to experience strong preference amongst the consumers. However, the de-caffeinated segment is estimated to be the fastest-growing, with a CAGR of 10.5% over the forecast period of 2022-2027. It is due to the various findings claiming the ill effects of caffeine on health. Caffeine causes restlessness, nausea and anxiety, amongst other potential side effects. As per NIMH, nearly 19.1% of U.S. adults have had an anxiety disorder in a year.

B2C held a dominant market share in 2021 and is estimated to be the fastest-growing segment with a CAGR of 10.9% over the forecast period of 2022-2027. It is due to the immense reach of energy drinks through various intermediaries of off-trade channels.

Energy Drinks Market based on Geography can be further segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America and the Rest of the World. North America dominated the market with a 31% share in 2021. It is owing to the rising consumption of caffeine-induced products such as coffee and energy drinks which have proliferated the market share. Energy drinks are an integral part of social gatherings, parties and celebrations in the United States. Manufacturers such as Red Bull and Monster Beverages are offering their energy drinks in multiple flavors and two major packagings. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities over the forecast period of 2022-2027.

As per ILO.Org, India has the largest youth population, with nearly 66% of the population younger than 35 years.
Energy Drinks Market Drivers
A Rising Focus on health and Fitness:
Consumer awareness pertinent to liquid calorie intake has risen. This has led to the rising demand for products that can offer advantages over traditional carbonated drinks. Furthermore, the understanding of ingredients has improved among people, which has raised the demand for plant-based energy ingredients which offer the right blend of taste and health, along with the emergence of nootropic energy drinks. As per Food Dive 2022 Survey, nearly 55% of global consumers are more likely to purchase food and beverage products if they had sustainability claims. The market of Energy Drinks is driven by an extremely large consumer base, with fitness enthusiasts demanding products with controlled ingredients.
Growing Investments from Renowned Brands and Manufacturers to Reach Nuanced Demand and Markets:
Renowned brands such as Monster, Red Bull and others are trying to find sustenance in a highly competitive and fragmented market by investing in ingredients and following market strategies to grow along the value chain. For example, Bioenergy Life Sciences has introduced Ribose - a healthy sugar substitute, with bioenergy ribose being about 60% as sweet as table sugar. Furthermore, advances in caffeine development aid the market directly. Future-Chemicals offered caffeine sourced from whole-coffee cherry and deliver 70% natural caffeine and 5% antioxidant polyphenols. Lastly, urbanization trends with growing disposable incomes across the developing regions would support the market demand. As per the UN, 68% of the world population would live in urban areas by 2050 as compared to 55% in 2018.
Energy Drinks Market Challenges
Health Concerns Pertinent to the Consumption of Energy Drinks:
As per the Food and Health Survey from the International Food Informational Council, 73% of the survey respondents are actively trying to limit or avoid sugars. Due to sugar and caffeine being the key ingredient in energy drinks, marketers face reasonable friction in creating demand. A higher caffeine level would make the drinks more bitter, which would not help in solving the problem of sugar reduction. The market has been seeing a rise in healthy non-alcoholic beverages and energy drinks without sucralose sales. However, a critical demand coefficient is fulfilled by utilizing beet or cane sugar as an ingredient, which impedes the market growth in the medium and long term.
