Changing Market Scenario for Indian Tea

Kakali Hazarika
Abstract—Tea has occupied an important place in India’s economy for the last several decades. The market for Indian tea is changing day by day. In global scenario, Indian tea is losing its position due to high price and poor quality. And in domestic market also tea is facing tough competition from soft drinks and other beverages like horlicks, bournvita etc. The traditional tea industry was production oriented. But now to meet the competition, a new market orientation is emerging. The market production linkage can be strengthened by either Market creation or Market matching. Market creation means attempt to create new markets. It represents an active approach to linking production to markets. In market matching there is very little effort to influence the market. Here a product is sold to match the market demand. Few years back tea industry has the market matching approach. But now both market creation and market matching are needed to face the demand of the market.
