Matcha Tea Market to Surpass a Whopping US$400Mn, New Flavor Variants to be Key Contributors
Published : 21 Feb 2020 Industry: Food & Beverage
The evolution of a new breed of tea lovers that search for new flavor variants has led to a skyrocketing growth of several tea varieties. Companies offering matcha tea have responded positively to this new consumption trend. As black tea consumers are migrating to newer options such as yerba matte and matcha tea, an array of new matcha tea brands can be seen flocking retail shelves to tap into these new consumer dynamics. The availability of matcha tea in multiple packaging formats and different price ranges encourages customers of every income group to try them. The introduction of on-the go matcha tea has been trending, which is likely to create a strong pool of new customers who seek convenience of carrying them. On the back of these dynamics, global matcha tea market is projected to garner an absolute dollar opportunity of over US$ 400 Mn during the forecast period (2019 and 2025).
