Tea and Ready-to-Drink Tea in the U.S.: Retail and Foodservice, 5th Edition

NEW YORK, Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Tea and Ready-to-Drink Tea in the U.S.: Retail and Foodservice, 5th Edition 

http://www.reportlinker.com/p02114155/Tea-and-Ready-to-Drink-Tea-in-the-US-Retail-and-Foodservice-5th-Edition .html

Packaged Facts forecasts that sales of tea will reach $25 billion in 2014. Of this amount, we expect $6.2 billion (or 25%) to come from retail sales and $18.8 billion to come from foodservice sales.

Retail sales trends from 2012-2013 suggest both challenges and successes for the U.S. tea market. For instance, once a growth driver, RTD canned and bottled tea sales are flat, and instant tea mix declines present challenges. But the flipside is that plenty of opportunity exists to continue to grow the category, from making tea drinking a bit more "manly" to looking for avenues to personalize tea drinking. And marketers can continue to ratchet up category innovation by supporting the trend toward premiumization, incorporating unique ingredients, and pursuing innovations in form. But bagged/loose tea participants—already on notice—must prepare for continued Green Mountain single-cup tea share taking.

Our expectations are brighter for tea sales at foodservice establishments, which we expect to increase steadily during 2014-2016, driven by modest growth in foodservice establishment visits, tea menu item and tea room establishment expansion, and pricing power. Growth drivers include iced tea, as well as niche beverages such as chai tea, which has seen the most growth in usage on restaurant menus from 2009-2013. Our analysis also suggests that tea is still not being fully leveraged by quick-service restaurants to draw customers. And while fast food restaurants serve generally as Pied Pipers in luring younger customers, coffeehouses may be having greater success in drawing in younger tea drinkers.

Tea and Ready-to-Drink Tea in the U.S.: Retail and Foodservice, 5th Edition analyzes the industry and consumer trends shaping this highly competitive environment. The report does the following:
Addresses retail tea category innovation, including premium characteristics, ingredients, and new beverage formats.
Identifies key marketing opportunities for tea, supported by consumer survey data, product examples and other metrics. In particular, we focus on families, men, healthfulness and customization, single-cup brewing, and all-in-one brewing.
Assesses how foodservice operators are capitalizing on "hot" trends; penetration and penetration growth of hot and iced tea types on quick-service, family-midscale, casual and fine dining menus; retail brand penetration in foodservice menus; and trend spotting.
Assesses household and personal tea usage and usage frequency trends, including bagged, loose, RTD and instant tea; household and personal tea brand usage and trends, including bagged, loose, RTD and instant tea. To help gauge brand loyalty, we trend brands' "usage preference ratios," the ratio that consumers drink that brand "most" over drinking that brand "also."
Assesses the degree to which consumers get different tea types for home use from different retail distribution channels; similarly, we assess the degree they get tea for "immediate consumption" from a variety of foodservice channels. Comparative analysis is included.
Provides comparative analysis regarding the degree to which consumers drink different flavors and types of tea at home and at restaurants, as well as identifying which tea types/flavors consumers drink most often.
Assesses the relative importance consumers place on factors such as taste, getting a specific brand, low price, and time of day when deciding to order tea at a restaurant.
