The Retail Market for Coffee in the US - Industry Market Research Report

The Retail Market for Coffee

The Retail Market for Coffee industry has exhibited strong growth over the five years to 2018 as more individuals have made coffee their caffeinated beverage of choice and customers have opted for more expensive industry options. Combined with increased consumption, a shift toward higher-end, higher-margin options has aided the industry's revenue expansion. Coffee sales from retailers, such as grocery stores, have grown in recent years due to strong demand for coffee in K-Cup packaging. Furthermore, many time-strapped consumers have moved toward drinking gourmet instant coffee during the five-year period, creating an alternative revenue stream for industry retailers. Still, as a result of volatile input commodity costs (i.e. coffee beans), coffee retailers have struggled to accurately reflect purchase costs in their prices, constraining growth in industry profit margins
