The Future of Coffee 2022 report covers the latest global innovations and consumer trends across the Coffee Market in 2022. Our coffee market report identifies evolving areas, consumer attitudes, and important advances expected across the global coffee market over the next five years and beyond.

Global Coffee Market Landscape

Global packaged coffee revenue continued to thrive in 2021, albeit not at the heightened levels of 2020. The lifestyle changes brought on by the pandemic have seen consumers turn to ground and whole bean coffee for in-home consumption, which has seen whole bean coffee launches continuing to grow their share of innovation. Mintel’s coffee market research report identifies the brands that are also responding to increased consumer demand for sustainably and ethically sourced coffee, which will be key for the future of coffee.


Global Coffee Market Trends in the Next Two Years

The latest global coffee market trends reveal that brands will need to prove that they are invaluable as financially stressed shoppers cut items from their grocery baskets. Brands also need to evolve their offering to be more in tune with health-obsessed drinkers. This means more investment in decaf, low-caf and supplementing consumer diets to support healthy living. Lastly, the future of the coffee industry relies on brands doing much more to protect the planet and safeguard future profits.

  • Global Coffee Market Size: the packaged global coffee market continued to benefit from global lockdowns, with revenue growing by 2.7%, after a 7.3% surge in 2020.
  • Global Coffee Market Share: Launches of fresher formats (pods, ground and beans) account for 61% of global coffee market innovation. In the more developed global coffee markets of North America, Europe and Australasia, whole bean’s share of launches rose from 21% in 2019-20 to 26% in 2021-22.

Global Coffee Market Trends in Five Years and Beyond

Mintel’s coffee market research report identifies that the future of the coffee industry will be shaken up by lab-grown coffee, which will be ready to compete with ‘the real thing’. Smarter coffee machines threaten to remove boundaries to direct-to-consumer (DTC) sales. Finally, the future growth of the global coffee market is dependent on brands understanding their role in the metaverse, which will become an important channel to engage with ‘early adopters’.
