Executive Summary

Mar 2019
PROSPECTS
Excise tax negatively impacts volume sales

Excise tax of 100% as well as VAT of 5% has had an impact on consumer consumption of sports drinks with volume sales recording a strong decline. The regulation comes in conjunction with a lower appetite in consuming conventional electrolytic beverages perceived to be high in sugar.

Consumers exploring other hydration options for an active lifestyle

Sports drinks also experienced a further negative impact due to alternate means of hydration increasingly being preferred by local consumers. Protein-based beverages and coconut water are being used as alternatives to sports drink to replenish and support active lifestyles.

Gyms and fitness centres increasing their footprint

The United Arab Emirates has one of the highest consumption rates of sugary drinks and the government has played a part in ensuring that there is consumer awareness to reduce obesity rates. There has been a rising number of gyms, fitness and wellness centres in the country.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE
Three leading brands within sports drinks

Gatorade, Isostar and Pocari Sweat were the three leading brands in off-trade value terms within sports drinks in 2018 with a strong presence within modern grocery retailers. Familiarity supports these brands as they enjoy high brand equity.

Category blurring has given rise to alternatives

Many brands are selling across the product categories such as powders, gels as well as sports drinks. Brands are tapping into producing the entire eco system for sports nutrition with online support on the various offerings.
