Market Key Trends
One of the key trends driving growth in the global coffee market size is the rising demand for specialty and premium coffee. Consumers are willing to pay higher prices for specialty coffee that offers unique flavors from single-origin beans. Specialty coffee shops offering unique blends and experiential retailing have seen increased patronage. Major players are focusing on specialty coffee offerings and collaborating with small batch roasters to cater to this segment. Another trend gaining traction is ready-to-drink coffee products such as cold brew coffee, coffee pods, premixes and flavored coffee. The convenience and portability offered by these formats is appealing to increasingly busy lifestyles. Product innovation led by flavors, varied formats and functional additions is also fueling market growth. New product launches in the healthier and organic coffee space alongside innovations leveraging new technologies will continue to present lucrative opportunities.

Bargaining power of buyers: Large buyers like supermarkets have significant bargaining power over producers due to their size, however specialty coffee shops have limited power.
Bargaining power of suppliers: Coffee farmers have low bargaining power against large producers and distributors due to oversupply of raw coffee beans globally.

Competitive rivalry: Intense competition exists among large producers and specialty coffee chains to offer variety and niche products to maintainbrand loyalty.
The global coffee market is expected to witness high growth.
