Market Overview:

Caffeine is a natural stimulant found in plants like coffee beans, tea leaves, guarana berries, and cacao pods. It is also popularly used as an additive in various products ranging from drinks, supplements, confectioneries, and medications. Caffeine works as a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant that temporarily wards off drowsiness and restores alertness. It aids in mental concentration and enhances physical performance when consumed in moderate amounts. The wide acceptance of caffeine as a safe and legal stimulant has led to its growth and prominence across various consumer products globally.

Market key trends:

One of the key trends driving the caffeine market is the rising popularity of energy drinks, especially among younger consumers. Energy drinks blend caffeine with vitamins, herbal stimulants, sugars, and other substances to provide an energy boost. A 2018 study revealed energy drinks to be the most popular drink category among teens in the U.S. Growing health consciousness is also shifting consumer preference towards caffeine supplements and tablets to maintain consistency in energy levels instead of sugary or carbonated energy drinks. Expanding functional food and beverage sectors utilizing caffeine for its stimulant properties also augur well for the market growth. However, over-consumption of caffeine can have health risks like insomnia, anxiety, irregular heartbeat and thus moderation is recommended.
