They keep you energized, revved, and alert: here is a list of the best energy drink brands in the world. This list of energy drinks is crowdsourced and ranked by a community of energy drink lovers. The energy drink business has grown from a niche market to a multibillion dollar industry in a relatively short amount of time. In 2012, Red Bull sold more than $3.3 billion worth of energy drinks in the United States and Monster sold more than $3 billion in the U.S. Both of these brands increase their sales by about 15% year after year. While Red Bull and Monster are the two main energy drink brands in the U.S., several other smaller energy drink brands have cropped up and benefited from their success. BOMBA, Bawls and TaB have found success by appealing to a slightly different segment of the market. 

Why are there so many energy drink brands and why does the market continue to grow? The once-niche market has reached out to a wider demographic in recent years and has started appealing to new consumers by offering sugar-free options and drinks rich in Vitamin B. Now, 30% of energy drink consumers are women. Popular energy drinks have also become experts at retaining customers as they grow older while still appealing to younger high school and college-age kids.  

While top energy drinks have been criticized for their harmful health effects (energy drinks can increase blood pressure over time and disrupt the natural rhythm of the heart), most are perfectly safe if enjoyed in moderation.
