BodyArmor has secured Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray as an athlete partner and investor. Currently the No. 2 sports drink sold in convenience stores nationwide, BodyArmor is on track to hit nearly $1 billion in sales by the end of the year.
Tennis star Naomi Osaka, the highest-paid female athlete in the world, and All-Pro running back Christian McCaffrey are among the company’s other athlete partners. Despite the big-name deals, BodyArmor has a ways to go if it wants to compete with Gatorade.
With 72% market share and “high-single-digit revenue” growth per PepsiCo’s latest earnings report, Gatorade has a strong hold on the sports drink category. As of August, Powerade was second, controlling 20% of the overall market and BodyArmor was third with 7%.
