It is also estimated to thrive at a CAGR of 7.88% during the forecast period 2022 to 2030. Matcha tea is effective and efficient in treating largely prevalent health disorders such as cardiovascular diseases, obesity, high blood sugar levels, etc. The awareness about its benefits has attracted a larger customer base. The matcha tea market is far from maturity and is poised to expand at a healthy pace over the next couple of years.
The tea has its origin in the Asia countries, but its adoption by the western countries is projected to lead the expansion of the matcha tea market across the review period. Key players are focusing on the production of innovative products for intensifying their brand visibility. In addition, the fusion of matcha tea and other products such as beverages, desserts, etc. is another factor responsible for generating matcha tea demand. However, the production process of matcha tea remains labor-intensive for retaining its premium quality which requires massive capital investment. This, in turn, is likely to increase the cost of the end products, thus, restricting market growth.
By application, the global matcha tea market has been segmented into beverages, nutraceuticals and others. Among these, the beverages segment is likely to dominate the matcha tea market in the forthcoming years. Meanwhile, the nutraceutical segment is poised to expand at a relatively higher CAGR over the assessment period.
By formulation, the matcha tea market has been segmented into plain and flavored. The flavored segment currently has a larger consumer base and is prognosticated to retain its dominance in the upcoming years.
By distribution channel, the global matcha tea market has been segmented into store based and non-store based. The store based segment is prognosticated to penetrate a larger share of the market in the foreseeable future.

Asia Pacific houses the origin of matcha tea and is likely to retain its prominence by holding major share of the global market. Japan is expected to ace the growth of the regional matcha tea market.
