Top 5 Trends Shaping the Tea Industry:

Introduction of Innovative, Premium and Organic Product Variants

With the rising disposable incomes of consumers, tea manufacturers are introducing premium and health-oriented product variants. They are incorporating healthy ingredients into their formulations that also assist in managing common health conditions. In addition, the leading players are developing premium product variants, such as black tea, oolong tea, and green and herbal tea, to attract health-conscious consumers. They are also introducing organic tea variants in unique flavors, such as lemon, orange, mint, cranberry, and pomegranate, to expand their existing consumer base. Moreover, due to hectic work schedules and increasing stress levels, individuals widely prefer tea as a stress-relieving drink, as it reduces cortisol and toxins from the body. As a result, the growing inclination toward the consumption of organic tea is providing a positive impact on the growth of the tea market.

Growing Awareness Regarding Associated Health Benefits

The growing awareness among individuals regarding the numerous health benefits offered by regular tea consumption is also contributing to the market growth. Tea assists in reducing blood cholesterol levels, improving diabetes and obesity, enhancing digestion, strengthening the immune system, minimizing the risk of heart attacks and facilitating healthy weight management while also reducing stress levels, which is escalating its demand across the globe.

Rising Adoption of Convenient Packaging

At present, various key players are adopting multi-layered packaging to minimize the chances of spoilage and adulteration while keeping the freshness and aroma of the product intact. They are also using plastic containers, loose tea, paper boards, tea bags, paper packaging, and aluminum tin boxes for packing and transportation, which is creating a positive outlook for the market.

Increasing Product Utilization in the Cosmetics and Personal Care Industry

The increasing utilization of tea in formulating multiple personal and skincare care products is also positively influencing the market growth. Tea extracts are widely used in many cosmetics, such as creams, shower gels, moisturizing lotions, hair products, and facial masks. Moreover, green tea extracts are utilized in products for problematic skin types, as they inhibit excessive sebum production and can be applied by people with sensitive and allergic skin, which is accelerating the product adoption rate in the personal care industry.
