Data from YouGov BrandIndex, which tracks consumer perceptions toward brands on a daily basis worldwide, shows that Ad Awareness of the sports drink saw an uplift of eight percentage points over the four-week period.

To target consumers who are fasting during the Ramadan period, Pocari Sweat has been running a campaign around the hashtag #IONTahanBocor to promote the sports drink as a good way to replenish lost electrolytes. Separately, the PT. Amerta Indah Otsuka-owned label, was also the title sponsor of the 2024 Road to Pocari Sweat Run held on March 3 in Indonesia’s North Maluku Island city of Ternate.
