Booming Kombucha Market Health Benefits and Diverse Flavors Drives Growth

The kombucha market size is expected to nearly double in size by 2029. In 2024, the market was estimated at US$2.4 billion, and it's projected to reach US$5.9 billion by 2029. Growing at a rate of 19.4% during the forecast period.

Chicago, May 01, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kombucha is a type of fermented tea that has gained popularity for its potential health benefits. It is made by fermenting sweetened tea with a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY). During the fermentation process, the SCOBY consumes the sugars in the tea, producing various acids and enzymes. This results in a tangy, slightly effervescent beverage with a unique flavor profile. The global kombucha market is estimated at $2.4 billion in 2024 and is projected to reach $5.9 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 19.4% during the forecast period.  

Kombucha is often consumed for its probiotic properties, which may support gut health, although scientific research on its benefits is ongoing. Additionally, kombucha can be flavored with fruits, herbs, or spices to create different taste variations.
