U.S. catechin market size

Catechin extraction from green tea can be carried out using solvent extraction, Microwave Assisted Extraction (MAE), Ultrasound Assisted Extraction (UAE), Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE), and High Hydrostatic Pressure (HHPE). The efficiency of the extraction technique depends on several factors such as variety of tea used, extraction parameters and set-up, and storage conditions.

However, some of the extraction technologies are capital intensive and require longer extraction time. Research and development activities are being undertaken to minimize extraction time and cost, enhance extraction rate, as well as to maximize processing throughput and yield. Also, key players are focusing on developing technologies that reduce the use of chemicals in the extraction process. For example, Botaniex, has introduced an ethyl acetate-free process for the extraction of catechin. The new product developed by the company is chemical free, thereby making it healthier and safer for consumers. Thus, residue-free ingredients extracted through innovative technologies are anticipated to help dietary supplement manufacturers penetrate the catechin market.
