Overview of the Global Polyphenols Market
The polyphenols market is divided on the basis of product categories, application, and the market’s geographical distribution.
Grape seed, green tea, and apples are the major product categories within the polyphenols market. Other sources of polyphenols such as cocoa and olives don’t have a significant impact on the global market and are treated as a single miscellaneous category. Grape seed dominated the global market in 2011, accounting for close to half the total market for polyphenols. Green tea is also a dominant category, helped by growing consumption in Asia Pacific countries such as China, Japan, and India. Increasing geriatric populations in this region and in Europe are expected to help the polyphenols market, as the health benefits of polyphenols are more of use among geriatrics.
However, the lack of standardization in the largely unregulated Asia Pacific market is expected to hinder the growth of the market in this highly populous region, which accounted for more than 40% of the market in 2011. In spite of this obstacle, the Asia Pacific market is expected to be the fastest growing regional market, with an expected CAGR of more than 8% from 2012 to 2018. North America and Rest of the World followed Asia Pacific and Europe, which accounted for about 27% of the market, regarding their share in the global polyphenols market.
The global polyphenols market has four major applications, viz. functional food, functional beverages, dietary supplements, and others. The functional beverages segment, which includes green tea, was the largest segment in 2011, with a market share of about 40%, and is expected to grow rapidly in Asian markets.
