Market Synopsis

The rise in consumer interest in physical fitness and the expansion of health clubs and fitness facilities are the main causes of the growth. The International Health Racquet and Sports club Association (IHRSA) estimates that there will be 32,270 health clubs in the United States by the year 2021.

Sports drinks are a type of functional beverage created specially to supply athletes with carbs, electrolytes, and minerals.

As a result, producers are putting more of an emphasis on diversifying their product line by incorporating new flavors with added health advantages. Additionally, consumers are becoming more interested in nutritious, low-calorie drinks made from natural ingredients as a result of growing health concerns.

F&B businesses are expanding their product lines as more and more health-conscious consumers are willing to pay more for nutritious goods. While exercising, children perspire more than adults do, yet they still don't need these drinks. Furthermore, such drinks can increase their chances of being affected by various health issues even when they are not engaging in strenuous exercise. This should further bolster the sales of sports drinks among parents concerned about the well-being of their children.
