Market Synopsis

Application Analysis

Food & Beverage Segment poised to grow at the fastest rate during the Forecast Period.

Food & beverage is registered as the fastest growing application in the global caffeine market during the forecast period. Increasing demand for caffeinated drinks and beverages accounts for the prime reason behind the significant market growth. The aforementioned factor has also triggered the production of synthetic caffeine.

However, regulations on the safe consumption limit of caffeine by the government of various countries are expected to hinder the market growth in the coming years. For example, as per European Food Safety, the safe consumption of caffeine for adults is 5.7 mg per Kg of body weight. Along with this, a healthy adult should consume no more than 200mg in a single dose. Another country with stringent regulations on caffeine is Australia. As per the Australian Food Standards, the caffeine content in drinks should not exceed 145 mg/Kg. Similarly, New Zealand Food regulations also prescribe a safe level of caffeine in drinks as 200 mg/Kg. Therefore, increasing awareness of safe caffeine consumption is predicted to lower the actual consumption rate on a global scale during the forecast period.
