Here is some great news about ED's. For all the naysayers sayiong after 10 years it is still a fad I beg to differ.
One thing the report doen't mention is the change in the category by smaller brands coming to market with different approcahes.

I think that the energy drink category will become a permanent part of the canned drink landscape in the not-too-distant future, sorta like how Mountain Dew-type drinks are a permanent part of the category now.

Easy to foresee a fragmented market, as well (categorywise if not companywise).
