- Health deterioration due to busy lifestyles and insufficient exercise, along with the increasing obese population, is a major reason behind the rising number of individuals riding on the fitness fad.

RTD Coffee Market Trends
This section covers the major market trends shaping the Ready to Drink (RTD) Coffee Market according to our research experts:
Bottled RTD Coffee Gaining Momentum
- Packing all beverages by almost all major players is more attractive to increase the sales of their products. Also, packages in various quantities are made available for easy usage. Glass bottles and pet bottles are widely used worldwide. Pet bottles are preferred more than traditional glass bottles, as new technology enables these bottles to do more than hold beverages.
- These bottles aid in improving the shelf life and preservation apart from being available in economic formats. Pet bottles are manufactured so consumers can heat or cool the coffee depending on their requirements. These hot/cool bottles come in handy 'grab and go' sizes and can be used conveniently.
- Products in bottled format can be consumed all at once or can be stored. Caps or lids over these bottles also play an important role as they preserve the freshness and aroma of the drinks. The convenience offered by bottled, ready-to-drink coffee products is driving the market for the particular segment.
- Additionally, the appearance of the package also plays an important role in the sales of the products. Hence, sleek and fashionable bottles with bright colors influence consumers' impulse purchase patterns.
Asia-Pacific Witnessed Significant Growth

Ready-to-drink coffee is also one of the functional drinks that is available with proven health benefits. Various types of ready-to-drink coffee are introduced to serve the vast consumer base spread globally. The growing obese population, unhealthy eating habits among children and adults, busy lifestyles, and tight work schedules are the factors driving consumers toward healthy alternatives in terms of convenience food.
- The calorie-conscious consumer and the diabetic population are looking for alternatives to sugar in their drinks, increasing their preference for antioxidant-enriched health drinks. Product innovation is one of the core strategies that escalated over the years. It is garnering interest among consumers.
