Key Market Trends

Growing Popularity of Herbal Tea

Increased population, disposable income, growing health awareness of the consumers, and the ongoing wellness trends are some of the driving factors that would influence the herbal tea market in the coming years.

Beverages with these functional benefits typically are marketed toward busy millennials, who are looking to improve the quality of their sleep and increase their energy. These consumers are interested in functional beverages as a way to improve their day-to-day functioning and accommodate their busy lives. Therefore, manufacturers are focusing on offering RTD herbal tea, in order to expand their customer base.
