North America Specialty Coffee Market Analysis

The North American Coffee Market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.9% over the forecast period.

  • With the increase in the demand for non-alcoholic drinks and the prominence of high-end coffee served by global coffee chains like Starbucks, The Coffee bean, Tea Leaf, and others, North America's coffee market is set to grow exponentially. There is a surge in health and wellness trends across North America. The growing preference of households preferring homemade coffee and more consumer moving towards specialty coffee is driving the growth of the North American coffee market.
  • Multiple factors drive the coffee market, a few being the increasing demand for certified coffee products, the acceptance of single-serve coffee brew systems by consumers, and the constant innovation led by the top players in the coffee market. In developed economies, some consumers are expected to switch from instant coffee to premium coffee due to its quality and flavor.
  • The rising demand for coffee pods and capsules is primarily attributed to consumers' increasing interest in the premium experience of single-serve coffee, especially in the away-from-home channels across the country. Advancements in technology (like tabletop machines and traceability tools) are creating the pathway for bean-to-cup solutions. Moreover, companies are focusing on their direct-to-consumer channel by growing a strong customer base online and trying to get their product to as many people as possible.
  • Due to socioeconomic conditions, North America is experiencing steady market growth for instant coffee. The hectic and stressful lifestyle of people has fueled the demand for instant coffee in the region. Moreover, the easy availability of a wide range of new flavors, such as cappuccino, mocha, French vanilla, Italian roast, organic instant coffee, and green bean instant coffee, will continue to spur the demand in the upcoming years.
  • For instance, in December 2021, Peet's Coffee, introducing its new flavored coffee K-Cup® pods, presented its first range of flavored coffee for home brewing. The new range contains three precisely created options that masterfully mix great Peet's coffee with natural flavors for a wonderful cup at the push of a button: Caramel Brûlée, Vanilla Cinnamon, and Hazelnut Mocha.

This section covers the major market trends shaping the North America Coffee Market according to our research experts:

Increase in Coffee Consumption Among Working Population

For instance, according to National Coffee Association, in 2020, around 64% of the population aged 25-39 years consumed coffee in the United States.
  • Furthermore, increasing global exposure and penetration of established coffee brands are anticipated to be the key factors that drive the expansion of coffee chains, especially in the North American region. Coffee shops recently experienced explosive development as they became popular hangout spots for friends, family, colleagues, and business associates.
  • The increased acceptance of coffee is attributed to the emergence of premium stores from companies such as Coffee Day Enterprises Ltd, Starbucks Corporation, and Barista Coffee Co Ltd, fueling the market growth.
