Description

“Not all consumers need an intense and immediate energy shot. Instead, some may just need a slight energy kick to enhance their mood. Therefore, a one-size-fit all approach in energy drinks could limit a brand’s consumer penetration. Lighter versions of energy drinks have good potential to increase usage, especially among female consumers and young people.”
