Report Overview

The global slimming tea market size was valued at USD 7.76 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.5% from 2021 to 2028. The growing prevalence of lifestyle diseases, coupled with a rise in health-conscious consumers, is a major factor driving the demand for slimming teas. The Covid-19 pandemic has affected the tea industry as there were unprecedented restrictions to mitigate the risk of the virus, for instance, in India, the lockdown damaged the first harvest of teas in Assam and Darjeeling impacting the tea industry in India. Furthermore, the changes in climatic conditions, coupled with the ongoing pandemic, resulted in the destruction of several tea plantations in the country.

Companies such as Tata Tea, Typhoo, and Clipper have revealed the list of their suppliers to maintain transparency.

Tea companies in the market are experimenting with new flavors as consumers are looking for healthy options. Companies such as Celestial Seasonings are introducing herbal teas in different flavors.

The green tea segment held the largest share of over 30.0% in 2020 and is expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period owing to its antioxidant properties.

In Japan, companies and the government are promoting domestic tea consumption in the country. For instance, the Prefectural tea chamber and Shizouka Prefecture are collaborating with food and beverage manufacturers to create demand for Japanese black tea.

Distribution Channel Insights

The hypermarkets and supermarkets segment held the largest share of over 35.0% in 2020. The segment is driven by the rising in-home consumption of beverages, such as tea and coffee.
