Energy shots have become so essential to the everyday consumer that they have earned a place at the convenience store checkout counter. And, as demand continues to soar, more vending operators are claiming their share of the profits by putting the concentrated energy drink alternative in the hands of consumers in locations where they desire a quick pick-me-up.

5-Hour Energy shots sales are up 30% over last year in the vending channel, as operators are beginning to recognize the magnitude of the market for the product. In just a few years, the “shots” have has grown from a niche purchase to a mainstream must-have.

Sales of energy shots are expected to almost double this year, to about $700 million from last year’s $370 million, according to Stamford, CT-based market analyst Consumer Edge Research. Convenience stores are on track to achieve such growth; according to Nielsen data, they have posted the largest dollar sales increase in the first half of 2009 for “liquid vitamins, supplements and energy shots” – up 120.5% over the same period last year.

The 2-fl.oz. 5-Hour Energy shot bottle provides a concentrated sugar-free dose of caffeine equivalent to a cup of coffee or a can of energy drink. They also contain B vitamins and amino acids associated with alertness and focus. Students cramming for exams, truckers driving for many hours and fitness enthusiasts seeking a boost are among the diverse consumers relying on the “energy shots” for an on-demand power boost.

The current economy is driving vending operators to reevaluate their machines and say: ‘What can we change to get people back and get more dollars per vend?’Awareness of the brand and demand for it has exploded. With over 4 million bottles selling each week, many vending operators are finding success.

While the competition is heating up, it’s also helping build the market for other energy shots. Red Bull recently introduced a “shot” version of its market-leading beverage, Dr Pepper Snapple began test-marketing a shot of its Venom energy drink (Venom Bite) and Coca-Cola has added a shot based on its NOS energy drink. Shotz, which made its vending industry debut at last fall’s National Automatic Merchandising Association National Expo, is another contender in the fast-growing category.

A specially designed column shim makes it simple for operators to merchandise the product through a chip coil in a snack vender. Energy shots are filling a big niche and vending operators have a huge opportunity to put something in front of people that they want, in the places they want it.
