India Energy Drink Market Size, Growth, Report 2031

The Indian energy drinks market was valued at USD 25 million in FY2022 and was growing at a much faster rate as compared to the overall packaged beverages segment in the country. The market will grow to USD 108.29 million in FY2030, generating double digit CAGR of 20.11% during the forecast period between FY2023 and FY2030. In the year 2022, the Indian market held an insignificant share of just 0.026% in the global energy drinks market size which was valued at USD 95.27 billion. However, this share of India will increase substantially by FY2030.

During the forecast period, the demand for energy drinks will increase substantially as a result of aggressive marketing campaigns by the energy drink manufacturers, affordable price points, impact of social media influencers, adaptation of western food preferences amongst the Indian consumer, rise in purchasing power parity of the consumers, rapid urbanization and many such economic growth factors. Furthermore, the use of natural ingredients in energy drinks, and introduction of new flavours of energy drinks are some other factors leading to the diversification of this market.

Paradigm Shift in Consumer Preferences

The sports and energy drinks are advertised to appeal to those target group of consumers who regularly exercise and need a boost of energy.  The changing consumer preferences in India with predominantly younger population who are more health conscious is boosting the consumption of energy drinks. This class of beverages has high concentration of caffeine which stimulates the effect on cognitive functions in the human body. This is followed by B-Group vitamins, especially water-soluble vitamins. Such vitamins do not get stored as much in the body as fat-soluble vitamins. Instead, they circulate through the blood plasma.

Major Consumption by Younger Millennials and Gen Z

The consumption pattern of the energy drinks has gained massive popularity amongst the younger millennials and Gen Z segment of the population due to the push witnessed by the gym trainers and the drink manufacturers. The long and erratic work hours and increased culture of partying and social gatherings are supporting the increasing consumption of energy drinks. The increased consumption of energy drinks by price-conscious college students, gamers and young people who have just joined the workforce is forcing foreign and domestic manufacturers to pay attention to this category and create products to compete for this specific consumer base. For example, Monster, which has been operating in India with its premium energy drink offering at the same brand name since 2014, had released a new product in India named Predator, which was priced at INR 50. In November 2022, Janjira announced the debut of another drink in the price range between INR 25 and INR 35.

Impact of COVID-19 on India Energy Drink Market
