Description

Tea and RTD tea market sales are estimated at $6.7 billion in 2012. While the market exhibited a healthy growth of 15% during 2007-12, the growth slowed considerably in 2011 and 2012 as the biggest market segment, shelf-stable ready-to-drink (RTD) canned/bottled tea showed signs of stagnation. Additionally, the instant tea mixes segment continued its downward slide in 2011. The refrigerated RTD tea segment contributed most significantly to the 2011-12 growth. Mintel believes that the RTD canned/bottled segment has been facing competition from other non-alcoholic beverage (NAB) categories such as juice drinks, energy drinks, etc., that have successfully introduced tea-based products. Tea and RTD tea has potential for growth, but manufacturers need to create ample differentiation from other beverage categories. Mintel forecasts the market to grow by 18% to $7.9 billion during 2012-17.
