When consumed, caffeine acts like a stimulant for the central nervous system. It works as a performance enhancer, which usually keeps the body and mind active. With no major regulatory laws in place for caffeine consumption and selling, it is easily available throughout the world. Caffeine is a vital ingredient of tea, coffee, energy drinks, sports gels etc. Majority of the natural caffeine produced comes from tea and coffee.
Rise of the caffeine industry in China
China has always been considered as a tea drinking nation. Currently, it contributes around 2% to the global consumption of coffee, which is not very impressive. However, there is an evident change of trend in the region. Previously, the ability to consume coffee was considered as a luxury among the local population. However, as the economy is growing, the purchasing power of the people is increasing. China is potentially a humongous market for the coffee and caffeine industry. The Yunnan Coffee Association is looking forward to invest $480 million in the next ten years. This money will be used to improve the soil quality, build research centres, professional training for coffee growers with the goal of widening production as well as quality of coffee.
American coffee chains, Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts have made their presence felt in China. Heavy investments have been made by these companies. Starbucks, for instance, currently boasts of having around 2000 active outlets in China alone. 500 more are to be added in the years to come.

Alibaba, the popular Chinese e-commerce platform offer a wide range of caffeine products. There are factories in China that make synthetic caffeine which gives an added impetus to the Caffeine Industry in China.

China, on the other hand, lags behind with consumption of 3 cups of coffee per person annually which puts it below Sudan and North Korea in the global ranks. Reports suggest that Brazil might overtake U.S as the country with the highest amount of coffee consumed per year. 59% of the U.S population consumed coffee on a daily basis in the year 2015.
