Rethink Energy With ADM Next Generation Energy Drinks

Thursday, March 24th, 2022

Consumers’ wellness philosophies are increasingly rooted in an understanding of themselves as complex beings with unique needs. They are proactively managing healthier lifestyles and diets and making increasingly mindful decisions towards options they believe promote physical, mental and emotional wellness as nourishment for the whole self, identified as one of ADM’s global consumer trends fueling growth in the food and beverage space. 

With high relevance to the conceptual space of energy, we are observing new narratives which call for ways to communicate energy in new ways. According to ADM’s propriety consumer energy study, consumers expectations are changing from “just need” to also “include wants” towards emotional and functional values like “Being Energised”, “Craving Indulgence” and “Wanting Excitement”.

‘Euromonitor analyses that Asia-Pacific energy drinks market to be growing at a CAGR of 3.8% in the forecast period of 2021-2025 and is expected to reach the USD 16.9 billion by 2025.’

According to FMCG Gurus, 2021, over 55 percent of the consumers surveyed in APAC are interested/very interested in products that promote improved energy levels. A continuously growing market segment in APAC energy drinks’ emotional and functional value proposition towards the consumer also pays off in the segment performance. The market is continuously growing with strong growth rates and a promising but also impressive prediction for the future development with a value growth rate of 7.6 percent between 2020 to 2021, according to Euromonitor.

Traditionally, energy drinks have been positioned to impact performance and provide a feeling of increased energy, these drinks are fast evolving to capture new consumer groups such as e-gamers looking for a way to stay alert and engaged in an immersive digital world and seeking gentler energy through a more lifestyle-oriented and modernised lens.

Energy drinks are more than just a beverage. Well-known for their activating and energising functionality, they are also consumed because of their unique and appealing taste profile. Energy drinks combine functionality, as well as lifestyle and emotional appeal, and they fulfil consumers’ demands for multiple consumption occasions, like alertness when driving or while at work, when learning or to stay awake in the evening when meeting friends. 

This offers manufacturers multiple options for their own energy drink concept and flavour profile, as well as future-oriented range extension opportunities to participate in the attractive energy drinks market.
