Kombucha Market Trends



  • An increasing preference for innovative non-alcoholic beverages is driving the market growth


The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that harmful alcohol consumption causes almost 3 million deaths annually, accounting for 5.3% of all fatalities.  As a result, consumer tastes for fermented tea and other low- or non-alcoholic beverages have changed ly.  This transformation has been made possible by the rising popularity of refreshing beverages and the availability of these beverages in ready-to-drink formats.  Consumers, particularly millennials and members of Generation Z, are adopting better lives, causing them to prefer low- or no-alcohol beverages and healthier alternatives to alcoholic beverages more and more.  In 2020, the increased accessibility of non-alcoholic beverages, their expanded online range, and a decline in alcohol consumption will have shifted consumer preferences towards kombucha, according to a research paper published in BioMed Central.  During the forecast period, the market’s growth is also expected to be aided by the introduction of novel flavor variants.


The new craft beer trend boosted the rise in popularity of kombucha among young people. The aluminum can format has been lifted into the premium category due to the craft beer boom, which began with beer but has now expanded to include non-alcoholic beverages.  Now Kombucha products can benefit from this.  The Brewers Association reports that craft beer's market share has increased by 13.6%.  Craft beer accounts for 29.3 billion USD of the 116 billion USD market share of the beer industry.  Greenbelt Craft Beverages introduced four flavors of Greenbelt Craft Kombucha in a novel format: Peach Blossom White Tea, Strawberry Fields Roibos Tea, Blood Orange Yerba Mate, and Hibiscus Berry Black Tea. They exclusively utilize the highest quality premium teas to make effervescent, probiotic, raw, non-genetically modified organisms, and vegan Kombucha without sugar after fermentation.


Kombucha is widely taken for digestive health and as an immunity booster because it is high in vitamin B12 and may balance fruitarian and vegetarian diets.  The popularity of kombucha, a low-sugar beverage made by fermenting sugar and green tea with a starter culture or Scoby (a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast necessary for fermentation) and low levels of alcohol (less than 0.5%), is rising significantly among people with diabetes and the general public.  For example, according to the American Diabetes Association's most recent data, about 35% of Americans have been projected to have been diagnosed with diabetes, which affects 37.3 million Americans, or 11.3% of the population, including 283,000 Americans under the age of 20.  These numbers represent an increase in the prevalence of diabetes among Americans, which is driving the growth of the kombucha industry revenue.


Manufacturers have taken the kombucha beverage to the next level by merging convenience, various flavors, innovation, and health.  As customers turn away from sugary drinks and choose healthy substitutes, the relatively new competitor, kombucha soda, is rising and posing a challenge to the normal soda market.  These reasons drive the market of kombucha and the revenue growth is expected to continue over the forecast period.


Segment Insights


Kombucha Type Insights


The Kombucha market segmentation, based on type, includes Green Tea, Black Tea, and Others.  The green tea segment is expected to dominate the kombucha industry during the forecast period.  Consuming kombucha made with green tea can boost the immune system because it contains many polyphenols and antioxidants.  These substances can strengthen the immune system, lower inflammation, and support good digestion.


Green tea is an excellent addition to skincare products because of its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant characteristics.  It can help lessen inflammation, offer UV protection, and combat aging symptoms.  Catechins and caffeine in green tea have been demonstrated to speed up metabolism and aid in fat loss.  It is frequently used as a supplement for weight loss or an ingredient in weight loss products.


The black tea segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment of the Kombucha market during the forecast period.  Theaflavins and catechins, two substances in black tea that have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, are among the substances that have health advantages.  In addition to the advantages of fermentation, these substances may be found in kombucha manufactured from black tea.  As a flavoring ingredient, black tea can be added to food.  Desserts, sauces, and marinades can all benefit from their distinct and nuanced flavor.

Kombucha Packaging Material Insights


The Kombucha market segmentation, based on packaging material, includes Plastic, Metal, Glass, and Others.  The Plastic segment is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period.  For packaging kombucha, plastic material has various benefits.  It is a popular option for producers and consumers since it is affordable, lightweight, strong, versatile, recyclable, safe, and convenient.  Plastic packaging is made to be secure and guard against contamination.  Additionally, it typically has UV light resistance, which can maintain the product's quality and shelf life.


Kombucha Distribution Channel Insights


The Kombucha market segmentation, based on distribution channel, includes Store Based and Non-Store Based.  The Store Based segment is expected to hold the largest market share throughout the forecast period.  The main factors that make it possible for this channel to generate more sales are the freedom of choice, affordable costs, and a one-stop location for a range of drinks and beverages.  Additional factors contributing to revenue growth include the standardization of goods with proper labels and lower profit margins.  Separate areas for various beverages aid the product selection process.  Together, these factors cause this segment to see strong sales growth.
