The U.S. Market for Gourmet Beverages and Confectionery

As a sign of the times, Starbucks Corp. has made the latest Fortune 500 list. This new Packaged Facts report, The U.S. Market for Gourmet Beverages and Confectionery, offers a unique perspective on this booming market. The U.S. Market for Gourmet Beverages and Confectionery covers two broad categories - beverages and confectionery. The beverages category includes whole-bean and ground coffee; loose and bagged tea; gourmet instant coffee, tea, chai, and cocoa mixes; upscale ready-to-drink bottled and canned non-alcoholic beverages (coffee, tea, chai, juices, soft drinks, bottled waters, etc.), while the confectionery category encompasses gourmet and premium chocolate and non-chocolate candies; superpremium ice cream; gourmet and premium cookies; and cakes, pies, and other desserts.

The analysis of consumer demographics derives from Simmons Market Research Bureau survey data for fall 2002. New product information is gathered via literature research, personal interviews and data compiled by ProductScan, a service of Marketing Intelligence Service Ltd.

This report looks at every segment of the gourmet and specialty beverages and confectionery markets, examining trends for growth and projecting sales of products through 2007.
