Coffee is considered the most extensively consumed hot beverage globally owing to its aroma, taste, caffeine content, & extensive availability. The increasing consumer inclination toward coffee has cited rising demand for automatic coffee makers for domestic & commercial purposes. It, in turn, has escalated the sales of coffee in the form of capsules & pods, which are pre-packaged & measured and are available in different flavors, quantities, & shapes compatible with coffee machines.
Coffee capsules are cylindrical vacuum-sealed containers, usually made of plastic & sealed with aluminum foil, containing grounded coffee powder and are used in automatic coffee machines. Different coffee machines require varied sizes of these capsules, yet most of these follow a standard size. On the other hand, coffee pods are round-packed powdered coffee that works like a teabag, used for preparing hand-brewed coffee, and need a low-pressure drip of hot water to work. Since coffee pods involve high-pressure functioning, they are not used in coffee machines.
The Global Coffee Pods and Capsules Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 7.4% during the forecast period, i.e., 2022-27. The growth of the market is likely to be driven primarily by the growing demand for instant non-alcoholic beverages in restaurants & cafeterias, the surging popularity of different coffee varieties, and the convenience of using pods & capsules.
