The global tea polyphenols market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Tea polyphenols refer to various chemical compounds, such as catechins, theaflavins, tannins and flavonoids, which are found in tea leaves naturally. These compounds are a rich source of antioxidants and can aid in reducing the growth of bacteria in the stomach and minimizing the risks of coronary artery disease, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases and other medical ailments. They are usually found in varying proportions in different tea variants (black, green, white and oolong) and can largely influence the distinctive aroma and taste of the beverage. Apart from this, they are also used in processing meat-, plant- and fish-based products.
Owing to sedentary lifestyles and unhealthy dietary habits, there is an increasing prevalence of lifestyle diseases across the globe. However, with the growing health-consciousness, individuals are now more inclined toward adopting more nutritional diets, including beverages such as tea and leading an active lifestyle. Consequently, there is a rising shift to healthier tea alternatives, such as black and green variants, thereby increasing the demand for tea polyphenols. Furthermore, the growing utilization of polyphenols in ready-to-drink teas, nutraceuticals, dietary supplements and functional beverages, is also providing a boost to the market growth. These compounds also exhibit anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antineoplastic properties and are rich in epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and dietary fibers that aid in improving metabolism and weight management. This, along with the increasing utilization of tea polyphenols in the manufacturing of personal care and cosmetics products to minimize the signs of aging, skin darkness, acne, dandruff and hair loss, is creating a significant impact on the market growth. Other factors, including rapid urbanization and growing geriatric population across the globe, are also projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global tea polyphenols market to grow at a CAGR of 8.5% during 2021-2026.
