Hot Chocolate and Tea in Germany Market Research: What Consumers Want and Why

  • Tea in Germany Market Research: Germany is facing a health crisis with increasing levels of obesity and diabetes. Therefore, consumers will be looking for new ways to improve and support their health. Ongoing financial hardship means tea can take a more prominent role in daily nutrition as an affordable health supporter. Meanwhile, German hot chocolate will strengthen its position as an affordable, permissible indulgence.
  • Sustainability and the Hot Drinks Industry in Germany: The Germany hot chocolate market is susceptible to price fluctuations and climate change. To remain future-proof, hot chocolate brands are likely to introduce sustainable alternatives to appeal to eco-conscious Germans, as 83% of German consumers believe that it is their personal responsibility to protect the environment. Eco-ethical credentials can elevate the drinks’ perceived value by making German consumers feel guilt-free and virtuous about more indulgent hot drink purchases.

Germany Hot Drinks Market Forecast

  • The looming climate crisis and the resulting effects may lead to a shortage of raw materials, such as tea and cocoa, in growing regions, potentially resulting in price increases in the Germany tea market. Innovative alternatives that utilise more local raw materials and new growing regions will function as viable alternatives.
