The Energy Drink Market
Since being introduced in the United States in 1997, the energy drink market is the fastest growing segment in the beverage industry and it has grown into a multibillion-dollar business that in 2007 alone topped $17 BILLION in sales in North America, with Global sales exceeding $30 BILLION. Energy Drinks have now become the fastest growing sector within the beverage industry and are expected to top Coke and Pepsi sales in the next 10 years.

Energy Shot Market
The brand names—Full Throttle, Monster Hitman and Rockstar—conjure images of rocket engines, athletic prowess and super heroes, and they offer the promise of energy and power for all of those tired and ordinary human beings who want to do more, work longer or simply party all night. These products are all energy shots, and they are the hottest thing in the energy beverage sector since, well, energy drinks.

With growth statistics in the triple digits and market sales of approximately $560 million in 2008, according to Nutrition Business Journal estimates, the future looks bright for these little chasers. The emergence of the shot market was so fast that the products seemingly came out of nowhere – The growth of shots is all the more remarkable because these 2- to 3-ounce beverages also sport a premium price tag, costing up to $3.00 a bottle. As The New York Times noted in its July 2009 story about the soaring popularity of energy shots, at this price “a 20-ounce bottle of Coca-Cola would sell for $30.”

The concept has become so successful that there are currently more than 70 brands on the market—including sales leader’s 5-Hour Energy and 6-Hour Power, as well as newer entries from beverage industry heavyweights Hansen, PepsiCo and TheCoca-Cola Co. Most recently, the powerhouse of the energy drink sector, Red Bull, introduced its own shot product in April 2009.
