Top 6 Vendors in the Global Herbal Tea Market from 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top six leading vendors in their recent global herbal tea market report. This research report also lists 11 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The popularity of herbal tea in Asian economies and the availability of product and flavor variants have contributed to market growth. Herbal tea has garnered attention because it is thought to have numerous health benefits and has no caffeine content.

Ready-to-drink (RTD) tea and coffee are substitutes in the global tea market. Soft drinks and fruit juices are other alternatives, and although not of a similar category, they do pose some threat to the tea market.

Herbal tea bag formats will remain key to the growth of the market during the forecast period. Most consumers consider the tea bag format to be the most convenient form of consumption. Hypermarkets and supermarkets will continue to be the most preferred destinations globally for the purchase of herbal tea. This is because these retail formats are large in size and can allocate more shelf space to house more products of different brands than other retail formats. Attractive offers and discounts provided by these stores will continue to attract more tea lovers to these stores during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global herbal tea market is subject to rapidly changing consumer demand and preferences. Vendor performance in the market may be affected by changing consumer spending patterns. It may also be affected by consumer tastes; regional, national, and local economic conditions; and demographic trends. These changing economic conditions are affecting consumers’ living standards and will also affect vendors' businesses.

The market is highly fragmented because of the presence of numerous small and large vendors. The vendors in the market compete on the basis of factors such as price, quality, innovation, service, reputation, and distribution,” says Manjunath Reddy, a lead non-alcoholic beverages analyst from Technavio.

Increasing vendor competition may lead to vendors reducing their product prices, which will negatively affect vendor margins and market growth. The current market includes companies of varying sizes. Some companies are also more specialized than others with respect to particular commodities and some companies also have larger financial resources than other companies.
