The Global Tea Polysaccharides Market size is expected to reach $1.5 billion by 2030, rising at a market growth of 7.4% CAGR during the forecast period. In the year 2022, the market attained a volume of 31,819.9 tonnes, experiencing a growth of 6.8% (2019-2022).
The yearly value of the world’s tea trade, which represents a significant source of export revenue, is estimated to be around USD 9.5 billion. Over the past decade, tea consumption per person worldwide increased by 2.5%, with notable increases in the tea-producing nations. Thus, the green tea segment would capture 1/4th share in the market by 2030. The popularity of green tea polysaccharides, made from green tea leaves and well known for their health benefits, has grown along with consumers’ demand for natural, healthy components. Green tea, in general, is gaining popularity mainly because of its antioxidant properties and links to several health benefits; as a result, product makers have included tea extracts in functional foods, beverages, and nutritional supplements. Green tea polysaccharides now have more market potential because of the growing demand for functional beverages and the increased focus on preventative healthcare. Some of the factors impacting the market are growing demand from dietary supplements and nutraceuticals industry, increased use in skincare products, and lack of production infrastructure.
The immune system is essential in preventing pathogen invasion and preserving human health. In general, polysaccharides primarily control the body’s immune response through two pathways: one is to directly destroy infections, and the other is to strengthen the immune system by increasing the number and activity of macrophages and T cells. One of the most noteworthy biological roles of natural polysaccharides is immunostimulatory activity, which is connected to their active role as a crucial foundation for anticancer effects. The possible regulating effects of TPS on immune system activation and stimulation have been shown in numerous research. Moreover, its antioxidant qualities might aid in minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, producing a more youthful face. They can also encourage the creation of collagen, which is necessary for preserving the skin’s suppleness. According to studies, tea polysaccharides might possess anti-inflammatory qualities, which may be beneficial for people with sensitive or irritated skin disorders like rosacea or acne. Thus, due to these advantages, the market is seeing increased demand from the nutraceuticals and dietary supplement sectors and an increase in demand for skincare products.
However, Camellia sinensis, the tea plant, flourishes in regions with climatic and temperature conditions. They typically need an environment with clearly defined seasons ranging from temperate to subtropical. Temperatures that are too hot or too cold might be harmful to the growth of tea. The flavor and quality of tea can be significantly influenced by the altitude at which it is grown. Many different kinds of tea are produced at higher altitudes, wherein cooler temperatures and slower growth make leaves with distinctive flavors and qualities. The geographic location of tea-producing locations may impact infrastructure accessibility. Due to this lack of production infrastructure, the market may witness slow growth in the projection period.
