The global green tea market size is projected to reach USD 23.66 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.0% during the forecast period. Increasing research into the potential benefits of this tea in fighting the coronavirus is expected to open new avenues of expansion for this market, finds Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Green Tea Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, Form (Tea Bags, Loose Leaves, Loose Powder, Ready-to-drink, and Capsules & Tablets), Flavor (Flavored and Unflavored), Distribution Channel (Supermarkets/Hypermarkets, Convenience Stores, Specialty Stores, and Online Retail) and Regional Forecast, 2020 – 2027”. With the COVID-19 vaccine still being developed, medical researchers are intensely engaged in finding alternative cost-effective treatment and prevention methods to curtail the spread of the coronavirus. This tea has emerged as a promising disease-fighting mechanism owing to its natural detoxifying properties and chemicals. For example, according to researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, extracts from green and black tea have antiviral properties and can destroy the protein structure of the virus. Similarly, the UPASI Tea Research Institute in Tamil Nadu has collaborated with the Tea Board of India to investigate the antiviral potential of Theaflavins-3, a compound commonly found in catechins in green tea, for controlling the coronavirus. Thus, a growing body of research exploring the possibility of fighting COVID-19 with green tea consumption will support the growth of this market.

Restraining Factor

Damaging Effects of Climate Change on Tea Production to Hamper Market Growth

The green tea market growth is expected to major hurdles created by the adverse effects of climate change and global warming. According to research conducted by Tufts University and the Montana State University in 2016, changing rainfall patterns across Northeast India and Southern China, two of the largest tea-producing regions in the world, are likely to decrease yields from tea farms. A survey conducted by researchers from these universities in Assam showed that tea farmers in the state are getting increasingly concerned about the shorter growing season for tea, which will inevitably affect the quality of the final product. International bodies are taking measures to tackle the climate-related challenges facing the tea industry and threatening the livelihoods of several tea-growers.

For example, in 2012, a Consultation on Climate Change and Its Implication on the World Tea Economy was held in Sri Lanka and a Working Group was formed to submit recommendations to deal with the implications of climate change on tea. The production of this tea is expected to undergo considerable stress in the next few decades as a result of climate change, which may hamper the long-term growth prospects of this market.
