Energy Drink Market Analysis

The India energy drink market is projected to register a CAGR of 9.98% over the next five years.

  • Energy drinks are gaining massive popularity among millennials due to aggressive marketing campaigns targeting young consumers. Moreover, advertisements promote energy drinks as drinks that ignite the mind, refresh the body, and enhance performance and stamina. Companies are investing more in identifying the market gap and building the brand image through existing ideas and concepts. Key players are also adopting innovative marketing and advertising approaches necessary to drive their products' sales.
  • Over the medium term, the increased demand for energy boosters from the young population in parties and clubs is accelerating the demand for energy drinks in India. Increased urbanization, rising disposable income, and growing health consciousness among the Indian youth have increased the demand for non-carbonated drinks called energy drinks. At the same time, long and erratic working hours and the increasing occurrence of social gatherings are driving Indian consumers toward consuming energy drinks, which are primarily classified as non-alcoholic, caffeinated, and sports drinks.
  • Over the past few years, energy drink sales have been driven by changing consumer lifestyles and increasing demand for alcohol mixers. Moreover, consumers have become more health conscious, which has increased the demand for functional beverages instead of non-carbonated ones, which provide high calories. Also, manufacturers still need to shift their focus from athletes; instead, teenagers and young adults are the primary energy drink market, expanding the industry and producing plenty of prospects.

Convenience Stores Remains the Largest Market

  • Convenience stores have low capital requirements when compared to supermarkets/ hypermarkets. Owing to the low capital required, the number of convenience stores in India is higher. The significant factors that make convenience stores the leading contributors to the sales of energy drinks are the low prices they offer compared to other offline sales channels and single-unit sales. 
  • Furthermore, these stores are located in convenient spots, close to the colonies, so the products are readily available to the nearby residents. This, in turn, increases the demand for products and sales from convenience stores. The market is growing significantly due to the rising demand for energy drinks products and the convenience associated with drinks products. 
  • Furthermore, energy drinks products' accessibility and nutritional profile are two key elements contributing to their continued growth in the modern market. Promotional offers, like everyday low-pricing strategy, buy one get one, and others, provided by several convenience stores further propel the sales of products. ​
