Report Overview

The global bubble tea market size was USD 2.1 billion in 2019 and is expected to register a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.9% from 2020 to 2027. Rising consumption of tea and coffee as nootropic drinks among students and working-class population is a key factor for the market growth. Moreover, zero fat and low calorie contents of such beverages is propelling the demand further. Rising popularity of various kinds of hot beverages is also likely to boost the demand for bubble tea, thereby augmenting the market growth. In addition, health experts recommend that moderate consumption of such drinks boosts concentration and improves brain function.

U.S. bubble tea market size

Bubble tea is gaining popularity owing to its distinct taste and availability of various flavors, such as fruits, chocolate, coffee, and simple classic. These beverages are prepared with ice, sugar, and flavored syrups. Rising preference for tea, coffee, and other hot beverages over carbonated drinks is projected to boost the demand for bubble tea.

On the other hand, the market may experience sluggish growth over the next few years on account of recent breakdown of Coronavirus (COVID-19), which has resulted in lockdown of major cities across the globe.

Product Insights

Black tea held the largest market share of more than 45% in 2019 and is expected to maintain the dominance over the forecast period. This growth is attributed to the authentic natural flavor of black tea. Moreover, the drink helps reduce the blood sugar level and bad cholesterol and improve gut health. It also acts as an excellent source of antioxidants.

On the hand, the green tea product segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR of 9.2% from 2020 to 2027. The growth can be attributed to the rising awareness about the health benefits associated with the consumption of green tea.

Flavor Insights

Fruit flavor segment accounted for the maximum market share of more than 37% in 2019 and is expected to maintain the leading position over the forecast period. Availability of various fruit flavors, such as strawberry, passion fruit, mango, pineapple, cantaloupe, watermelon, avocado, coconut, grape, lychee, peach, honeydew, kiwi, and banana, is the key factor driving the segment growth.

Global bubble tea market share

Coffee is anticipated to be the fastest-growing flavor segment registering a CAGR of 9.4% from 2020 to 2027 owing to rising demand for coffee as a healthy energy drink. European and Scandinavian countries, in particular, are the major consumers of coffee. In 2017, Norway was the largest consumer with a consumption of 12 kg coffee per capita per year.

Asia Pacific was the largest regional market in 2019 and accounted for a share of over 35%. Bubble tea was first served and introduced in Taiwan. Thailand is one of the major consumers and according to the ASEAN Post, in December 2019, the average consumption of bubble tea in the country was six cups per person per month.

Europe is anticipated to be the fastest-growing regional market from 2020 to 2027 owing to increasing demand for healthy hot beverages.
