Energy and Sports Drinks: U.S. Market Trends and Opportunities

The sports and energy drinks market has experienced robust growth in recent years as consumers have sought novel flavor and ingredient combinations and alternatives to carbonated soft drinks (CSDs). However, the shift away from CSDs also raised the profile of other ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages, particularly bottled water, which is the most popular choice among U.S. adults and is set to overtake CSDs in annual production volume by 2021. Ready-to-drink tea and coffee beverages have become popular alternatives to self-prepared varieties of these beverages and represent formidable competition for energy drinks. This new Packaged Facts report, Energy and Sports Drinks: U.S. Market Trends and Opportunities, identifies these trends through energy drink industry analysis , highlights key energy & sports drink market opportunities, and reveals consumer attitudes that will help shape the energy drink market through 2021. Key players in drinks marketing – and the factors shaping their evolution – are also discussed.
