Description

Total retail sales of coffee posted 8.7% gains in estimated 2015. The strong year-over-year growth seen through 2012 slowed in 2013 and 2014 as manufacturers and consumers felt coffee’s increasing prices. Overall sales are expected to continue upward as coffee remains a popular drink in consumers’ daily beverage repertoire, and segments continue to innovate with new flavors, roasts, and brew methods. Opportunities exist in the $13 billion category for each segment, namely addressing consumers’ single-cup environmental concerns, expanding RTD usage occasions, and evolving coffee's functionality.

This report includes packaged coffee and prepared coffee beverages sold for home preparation and/or consumption. The following types of coffee are included:

  • Roasted coffee - ground and whole bean; regular and decaffeinated; non-flavored and flavored
  • Single-cup coffee - cups and pods containing pre-measured coffee for use in automatic single-cup coffee makers
  • Instant coffee - regular and decaffeinated; includes both powdered instant and liquid coffee concentrates
  • Ready-to-drink (RTD) coffee - shelf-stable or refrigerated bottled/canned single-serve prepared iced coffees and coffee drinks; refrigerated RTD coffee (half-gallons and single-serving)
