              Energy Drinks and Shots: U.S. Market Trends
http://www.aarkstore.com/reports/Energy-Drinks-and-Shots-U-S-Market-Trends-183245.html

In broad strokes, health and wellness-related beverage products are seeing increased consumer
penetration, while classic beverages—especially colas—are seeing consumer attrition. Specifically,
functional ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages, namely energy drinks, sports drinks, and tea, have
increased consumer penetration over the past few years.

While the energy drinks and shots market may be a small component of the non-alcoholic beverage
industry, it is perhaps the most dynamic market—growing 60% from 2008-2012 according to
Packaged Facts estimates in the all-new research report Energy Drinks and Shots: U.S. Market Trends.
In 2012, total U.S. sales for the energy drinks and shots market was worth more than $12.5 billion.

Intense competition surrounds the beverage industry as marketers seek to increase market
penetration and consumption frequency through positive alignment as a healthy and/or functional
beverage. Thirst quencher/sports drinks remain the most formidable competitor for energy drinks as
this type of beverage attracts a large constituency of energy drink users. Energy drinks are subject to
competition from other energy-boosting beverages such as coffee and tea beverages, as well as an
increasing number of new product innovations that tap into the energy trend but are outside of the
beverage industry.

At present, energy drinks have the lowest consumption rates of any RTD beverage—a point which
reflects the market’s relative infancy but also its growth potential. Experian Simmons analysis shows
the growth trend of this market, with the incidence of energy drink usage among adults rising from
nearly 13% in 2006 to 17% in 2012. In addition, there is a modest segment of heavy users: 5% of
adults consume energy drinks 5-7 times per month and less than 2% drink energy drinks 10 or more
times. Consumers 18-34, men, Hispanics, Pacific region residents, and adults with children in the
household are demographics that over index in energy drink usage.

Packaged Facts estimates that energy drinks account for some 78% market share, followed by 18%
for energy shots, and energy drink mixes (roughly 4%) in 2012. A few select marketers dominate the
energy drinks and shots market. This demonstrates the first mover advantage in each category. The
result is a market that is highly dependent on a handful of key brands, namely Red Bull, Monster
Energy, 5-Hour Energy, and Rockstar Energy.
