The presence of online channels for purchasing sparkling drinks and fermented teas is a major factor driving the demand for fermented teas.

The pandemic has disrupted the supply chain in several industries due to the difficulty in obtaining raw materials. The closure of several businesses and cafes has decreased the sales revenue for companies in the industry. However, the pandemic has shifted the focus of customers towards healthier lifestyles and increased consumption of immunity-rich food and beverages which is acting as an opportunity for the players in the industry.

During the pandemic, several businesses turned towards online retail channels to run their business. Factors such as high consumer engagement and the ability to penetrate several demographics are boosting the sales of fermented tea. Consumers may seek organic products which are free of any artificial ingredients thereby encouraging key players in the industry to launch newer flavors using raw ingredients. Additionally, the spike in sales for hard kombucha and exotic teas such as pu-erh and heicha among younger consumers is facilitating the market growth.
