The African energy drinks market is projected to register a CAGR of 3.9% over the next five years.

The African market is driven by the rising demand for convenience beverages, changing lifestyles, increasing income, sports activities, and urbanization. Thus, the demand for functional beverages in the form of drinks and mixers is expected to augment the market's growth. Furthermore, many players are investing in fruit-flavored energy drinks to attract new consumers to the category. However, rising concern over health issues associated with energy drinks, such as the high sugar content present in a few of the drinks, is likely to restrain market growth.

Energy drinks have many uses, as they help in fast recovery after a workout, improve concentration and memory, aid in weight loss, provide a refreshing experience, and many more. Because of all these benefits, consumers are much more attracted to energy drinks than other carbonated beverages. Red Bull energy drinks serve 106 grams of calories per serving. The African energy drinks market is expected to grow owing to high spending on advertising on television and other social media sites. Because of this, younger populations are getting attracted to the consumption of energy drinks, which is driving the market.
