Industry Prospects

Sports and energy drinks in China will tend to be more competitive in the forecast period. Products such as Red Bull, Pocari Sweat and Jianlibao as well as Gatorade have cultivated their brands for a long time. As demand for sports and energy drinks increases, these brands will become more prominent based on their established brand images and extensive sales networks in the forecast period. However, in the meantime, some players are keen to enter significantly growing sports and energy drinks, as was Hi-Tiger by Fujian Dali Food Co Ltd in 2013. In order to maintain existing positions and further gain more value and volume shares, leading players are likely to invest more in distribution penetration and marketing campaigns. For example, in some second- and third-tier cities, there are an increasing number of mah-jong rooms for people who like playing the game. Mah-jong fans have become a potential focus for energy drinks companies. In regions of China like Sichuan and Hunan Provinces, local residents like playing mah-jong for a long time and, thus, Red Bull has rapidly captured this chance and launched a variety of promotional sales.
