Market Dynamics

Due to enormous coffee consumption, coffee makers are expanding their product portfolio to meet the local taste and adjusting their packaging designs to appeal to the local market. This, in turn, is anticipated to positively impact the coffee capsules market growth. Coffee consumption in European countries is expected to reach record-breaking levels by mid-2022. For instance, Finland is the largest coffee consumer with 12 kg per capita per year followed by Norway (9.9 kg). Moreover, consumption in China has grown by 16% per year over the last 10 years. This makes China the 17th largest coffee consumer in the world. According to a report of The National Coffee Association (NCA), 59% of coffee consumed daily is classified as gourmet. The young generation is driving this growth in coffee consumption outside the home. The demand for coffee makers is expected to increase at a rapid pace, owing to growth in the middle classes, urbanization, and rising incomes. Moreover, Europe is gaining remarkable traction in the coffee maker industry for various attributes such as high export, consumption, and production of coffee, which provides favorable market conditions and business environment for growth of the Coffee capsules market.

The coffee capsules market faces a stiff challenge from the availability of alternative products including but not limited to tea, fruit juices, vegetable juices, health drinks, kombucha, chocolate drinks, milkshakes, lattes made with beets, matcha, chicory, and kefir are some among others. Where ready to drink teas, fruit juices, and milk-based drinks are the highly consumed drinks in the market which are easily and widely available and can be consumed directly. Countries such as China, Turkey, Ireland, the UK, India, and Iran are heavy consumers of tea and milk products, proving to deter coffee drinking. Furthermore, these countries are also some of the largest producers of coffee alternatives, which severely hampers the consumption of coffee and in turn harms the coffee roasters market.

Coffee capsules are a popular way to brew coffee, especially for those who want a quick and convenient way to make a single serving. However, the environmental impact of coffee capsule packaging is a growing concern.

The main issue with coffee capsules is the waste they create. Many coffee capsules are made from a combination of plastic and aluminum, which are not easily recyclable. This means that a large number of coffee capsules end up in landfills, where they can take hundreds of years to decompose. In addition, the production and transportation of coffee capsules also contribute to carbon emissions and other environmental impacts.

Another issue is the use of resources in producing coffee capsules. The production of aluminum and plastic used in coffee capsules requires large amounts of energy and resources, such as water and oil. This contributes to environmental degradation and the depletion of natural resources.

Furthermore, the single-use nature of coffee capsules means that they are not a sustainable option in the long term. While some companies have developed recycling programs for their capsules, these programs are often limited in scope and not widely available.
