Impact of Covid-19 on the China Energy Drink Market

The advent of Covid-19 in 2020 had the worst effect in China, yet the China Energy Drink Market underwent a positive impact amidst the crisis. With the imposition of stringent movement restrictions & lockdown by the Chinese government to curb the spread of this dreadful disease, people had to remain at home, which, in turn, resulted in the shutdown of public places like sports arenas, gyms, etc.

However, since people continued their workout regimes at home, the demand for energy drinks remained consistent in the country amidst the pandemic. Slight difficulties in increasing the production capacities to meet the burgeoning requirement of energy drinks in China introduced a slowdown in the market growth. However, the overall demand rate displayed an upswing for the market.

Market Segmentation

Based on the Product Type:

  • Organic
  • Non-Organic
  • Natural

Of them all, Organic Drinks displayed considerable growth in the China Energy Drink Market in recent years. It owes principally to the rapidly growing health consciousness among consumers & sports communities with the use of natural ingredients like guarana black tea, green tea, & green coffee beans.

Besides, the addition of natural extracts for reducing the usage of sugar content in Energy Drinks is another prominent factor soaring the demand for Organic Energy Drinks across China and fueling the overall market growth.

On the other hand, Non-Organic drinks dominated the China Energy Drink Market in recent years, and the same trend is likely during the forecast period. It attributes principally to the easy availability & longer shelf life of non-organic drinks that offer easy storage & transportation across the country.

Amongst all companies in the China Energy Drink Market, the leading player, Red Bull GmbH, an Austria-based multinational company, is actively operating in the beverages segment and launched its first product in 1987.

In 2020, Thailand’s T.C. Pharmaceutical Industries Co. Ltd (TCP), the original inventor of 'Red Bull,' announced to invest USD150 million in China to expand its presence.
