Palm Beach, FL – May 31, 2023 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – The Energy drink market has been popular for the past several years but there is a new player on the block… Plant Based energy drinks. The demand for plant-based energy drinks is expected to be driven by a rise in people’s understanding of fitness and an increasing number of health-conscious consumers. Consumers are started following different diets, such as vegan, and physical training, such as gyms, to improve their health. This change is mostly due to an increase in sedentary occupations and busy lifestyles. Also, the consumption of plant-based energy drinks improves the nutritional balance of the body. Plant-based energy drinks can help the immune system and combat diseases like obesity, diabetes, heart failure and cardiovascular disease. Consumers are increasingly concerned about their wellbeing and nutritional standards, so they are opting for energy drinks that are high in nutrients, vitamins, and low in sugar and fat, which is expected to grow the demand for plant-based energy drinks. A report from Future market Insights said that in 2022, the market for plant-based energy drinks was approximately worth $9 billion and that the Global market for plant-based energy drinks is expected to increase at a CAGR of 6.11% through 2032, reaching around US$ 16,285.7 Million by that year, driven by the expanding veganism trend. Active Companies from around the markets with current developments this week include: Yerbaé Brands Corp. (OTCPK: YERBF) (TSXV: YERB.U), Celsius Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: CELH), The Coca-Cola Company (NYSE: KO), PepsiCo, Inc. (NASDAQ: PEP), Monster Beverage Corporation (NASDAQ: MNST).
The report added: “Plant-based ingredients are the most natural source of nutrients and have many health benefits as opposed to synthetic or chemical-based ingredients. Thus, these factors will help in driving the sale of plant-based energy drink. Also, plants have become a more common source of protein, manufacturers have been urged to create protein-rich, healthier plant-based energy drinks, which is expected to propel the plant-based energy drink market forward. The use of plant-based and herbal ingredients in energy drinks is fueling the market’s growth. The consumption of energy drinks has increased dramatically among the young generation, but the energy drinks currently available on the market contain caffeine, which has its own set of side effects, leading to an ongoing quest for caffeine substitutes and effective compounds to use in energy drinks.”
