Hot Drinks: Segment is driven by convenience & quality

Hot Drinks: Segment is driven by convenience & quality


Some major new trends are sweeping through the beverage industry and they are having a major impact on both manufacturers and consumers. For the soft drinks industry sugar has now become a dirty word and sugar taxes have forced companies to create new formulas and diversify away from carbonates as that segment begins to decline. For the enhanced water segment new opportunities are developing as consumers are moving towards bottled water and away from sugar and this means a great deal of innovation is happening with new enhanced water healthy ingredients. For the hot drinks industry convenience and premiumization is changing the landscape and new types of on the go products are becoming the main consumer choice. Packaging up these products is becoming a major headache for beverage manufacturers however, as environmental challenges and consumer behaviors are forcing companies to look for new solutions to old problems.

Key Highlights

- Similar to other retail trends, altering conditions in the labor market are driving the push towards convenience. A combination of technological advances and labor market conditions has made convenience a priority for consumers. People are working longer hours and don't always have the time for preparation, meaning the potential for ready-made drinks is growing. A combination of long hours in employment and increased labor force participation has meant people are generally busier.
- Long working hours and busy lifestyles result in increasing demand for convenience, thereby entailing the need for portable and ready-to-drink coffee and tea. The desire for convenience has prompted the introduction of functional packaging formats such as single-serve coffee pods, soluble coffee tablets, and coffee to-go cups, allowing consumers to enjoy a perfect ‘cup' every time. Time scarcity is a prevalent factor in many countries, with the US and Japan notable examples. However, it is also occurring in the UK, where RTD coffee recorded a CAGR of 25.8% during 2011-2016, given their convenience and portability.
- One fast growing market is coffee pods used in conjunction with machines. These machines are becoming more affordable in price, and will constitute a growth opportunity in the future. The pod machine is also beginning to impact more commercial applications. GlobalData consumer estimates that the global coffee pod market will grow with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.9% between 2016 and 2021, one of the fastest growing segments in the industry. Demand is driven by North America and Western Europe, which accounted for 89% of market value in the most recent figures. A survey conducted in 2016 by Harris Interactive on behalf of The Grocer found that 30% of respondents in the UK owned a coffee pod machine, up from 22% the previous year.
