Matcha product manufacturers will focus on widening the scope of applications for matcha to include food and personal care products to appeal to a wider consumer demographic during the pandemic.

DUBAI, UAE / ACCESSWIRE / July 29, 2020 / Future Market Insights: The matcha market is expected to witness steady demand for the foreseeable future, despite the threat of the coronavirus outbreak. Matcha is known among users for its polyphenol ingredients, which have proven to have a positive impact on lung function. As the coronavirus largely affects the respiratory system, the demand for matcha nutraceuticals and food products is likely to rise for the duration of the pandemic.

'Matcha comprises high levels of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fibers which aids consumers in weight loss and healthier metabolism. Consequently, stronger demand for functional foods during the coronavirus outbreak will support demand for matcha during and after the pandemic,' says the FMI analyst.
