Report Overview

The global capsule coffee machine market size was valued at USD 1,278.1 million in 2018. The market is majorly driven by the prevalent usage of single-serve coffee, especially in the countries of North America and Europe. Convenient usage and consistent brewing results are driving the consumers to switch from instant coffee to capsule machines. Capsule coffee equipment is designed with simple operation features, lighter volume, and is also cheaper as compared to the conventional machines.

The U.S. accounts for significant consumption of coffee, especially by the millennials. From decaf coffee to cold coffee beverages, they are shaping the trends across the country and beyond. According to the recent trends from the U.S. National Coffee Association in 2018, about 80% of the population drink coffee in the U.S. wherein more than 60% of the U.S. adults consume it daily. Moreover, as per the statistics, more than 70% of U.S. consumers prefer home-brewed preparations, which, in turn, is expected to drive the product sales.

U.S. capsule coffee machine market

Growing awareness of the consumers with respect to varieties and specialty beverages is significantly affecting the consumption choices, especially in the commercial sector such as cafes and restaurants. Therefore, the need for a wider range of blends is expected to further drive the application of capsule machines. The number of orders placed for these capsule machines grew approximately by 50% to 53% in recent times and also accounted for about more than half of all the online orders. In the U.S., Nespresso and K-Cup are the leading brands in the online sales of coffee capsules. Nestle accounted for about 5% of its sales through online retail channels, mainly through e-grocery retailers and e-commerce operators.

The global market is also expected to be driven by increasing the application of these products in the coffee shops due to the rising demand of the time-pressed consumers. Continuous advancements in the capsule machine technology upgraded with new features, innovative concepts, and applications are evolving to provide enhanced quality and improved capacity, along with low energy consumption and minimum maintenance cost. This technology improvement is expected to result in the increasing traction of the product across the commercial and household sectors.

For instance, Dualit Limited, one of the major players of the coffee machine, launched CaféPro Capsule Machine, which is compatible with the company’s NX coffee capsules. This capsule machine is also compatible with other beverage brands such as Nespresso coffee and Fine Tea capsules. This machine is equipped with digital display aiming at providing professional experience to the consumers.

Application Insights

The commercial application segment accounted for more than 50.0% share in 2018. The rise in the number of cafes and restaurants in the U.S., Italy, India, Japan, and France has resulted in increased application of quick brewing machines to cater to the needs of busy consumers. Capsule coffee machines make an essential element in cafes. Moreover, the growing trend of office breaks and quick grab is driving consumers to consume this beverage due to its mind boosting and stress releasing benefits. The market for fresh ground coffee capsules witnessed a significant rise in sales since 2016. The convenient usage of these capsules that offer premium flavor to the drink and a large variety of tastes have contributed to an increase in its application across the commercial sector.

The household application segment is expected to expand at the highest CAGR of 5.0% from 2019 to 2025. Shifting trend towards the adoption of specialty coffee induced with various flavors and origin is gaining popularity. This trend is expected to drive the household application of capsule machines in countries with high consumption rates such as the U.S., Germany, Switzerland, and Japan. Consumers in western countries prefer home-brewed preparations and hence it is anticipated to fuel the market growth. According to the National Coffee Association trends, 29% of the U.S. households purchased single-serve brewers in 2017.

Regional Insights

Europe accounted for the largest share of 33.1% in 2018.

An increasing number of European consumers willing to pay high prices for premium and specialty beverages and K-Cups are witnessed in cafes, small roasters, and baristas, which, in turn, is driving the Europe market.

Global capsule coffee machine market

The market for coffee capsule machines in Asia Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period.

Developing countries such as India and China are expected to contribute to the regional market growth owing to growing cultural trends and increasing inclination towards consumption of coffee.

Moreover, this region is witnessing increasing establishment of cafes, which is likely to widen the scope of this market.
