Caffeine Price Trend

Strict export regulations and regional COVID-related restrictions are slowing supply chains for popular sports nutrition energy ingredient, caffeine, originating in China. Outside of China, suppliers and manufacturers are scrambling to stockpile these increasingly scarce materials, but they face steeply rising prices for whatever supply they can secure. Due to a scarcity of caffeine, suppliers have raised the price by 100%. Caffeine production is led by China, followed by India and Europe. However, shifting caffeine export regulations in China have almost brought the supply chain to a halt, impacting caffeine prices as well.
