Single-Cup Brew Beverage Products in the U.S.: Coffee Pods and Beyond, 2nd Edition
Packaged Facts forecasts the market for single-cup coffee to reach $4.37 billion in 2015, up 18.4% from 2014. For 2015, we expect the broader single-cup beverage market, including coffee, tea and other beverages, to generate sales of roughly $4.6 billion. As detailed in Single-Cup Brewed Beverages, we see a market undergoing major transition related to the migration of licensed branded single cup coffee onto the Keurig 2.0 platform, a broader influx of brands into the single-cup space, an increasing gap in pricing between branded and private label portion packs and Keurig’s push into the private label space, and the emergence of new brewers—coffee and otherwise—keen to compete against the Keurig platform.
Consumers will benefit from exploding single-cup coffee variety, ranging from super-premium to value-oriented; a wider array of less expensive portion packs from which to choose, and the ability to purchase single-cup brews priced under $100. We believe tea and cold beverage innovations will add at least incremental sales to single-cup beverages. Down the road, we envision cold beverage platforms broadening the market for single-cups beverages to teenagers and children, providing a plethora of new potential drinking occasions.
