Who Makes Up The U.S. Energy Drinks Market [infograph]

Posted By: on November 8, 2009

Energy drinks are everywhere, even Lil Jon has his own (which just might explain this). Although energy drinks have only become popular in recent years, the first energy drink, “Iron Brew,” was produced in 1901 by Scottish beverage company, A.G. Barr. Here’s another infograph that was sent in by a TopCultured reader that wishes to remain anonymous. It’s got some great information on the energy drink market and the habits of the users.

    You realise Barr made/ make iron Brew not "Iron Blue", its actually a bright orange colour

  2. Chris says:

    Your chart is broken. It makes no reference to Steven Seagal's "Lightning Bolt".

    I lol'd.

    Cost of a single Redbull-2-3 USD depending on where you get it. Doses-1

    Cost of a single bottle of No-Doz-7 USD at CVS. Doses-60

    Why are people so stupid?

    Oh god, IRN BRU was an ENERGY drink? I had no clue. My friend brought me a can back when he visited Scotland in the 80's. It sat on my shelf for a year before I drank it, and it tasted freaking awful, like crushed up vitamins. I guess it was the taurine, because to this day I can't stand the taste of Red Bull, Monster, etc. Shit is gross! And I don't even want to know what it does to your insides.

  5. Laura says:

    It's not even Iron Brew, it's Irn Bru.

  6. Krezmit says:

    How could they forget Sobe's No Fear? It's the only one I can find that doesn't taste horrible, and it flies off the shelves where I live.

    Interesting article.

    No Xyience?

    That's the best energy drink in the market!

    Not surprising that the fat south are the people who need the biggest energy boost during the day, while consuming high amounts of sugar which makes them even fatter.

    So almost a billion dollars on this stuff in 2008. Interesting article- and alarming to some of us that know what these drinks do over time. Energy drinks, terribly misnamed, are one of the nastiest things one can put in the body. I’ve read countless articles on the subject, have written them as well, and occasionally speak about it.

    Since it's the only body we have, perhaps readers would do well to check out this article that just came out on the topic.

    KingGorilla, I find that the otter taint of the northwest is cleaner and fresher than the otter taint of the northeast, which has the distinct taste of bitterness and loss at the slaughter of their ancestors. The otters of the middling north is clean and untainted, but the otters there are few and hard to come by, a proud and unyielding taint that feels like a disservice to nature to be licking.
