U.S. coffee roaster market size, by type, 2019 - 2028 (USD Million)

During the COVID-19 pandemic, online coffee roaster sales have shown a positive growth rate in 2020. However, the effect of continuous social distancing measures and the shutdown of restaurants during lockdown caused a reduction in coffee consumption. This key factor has particularly affected the small and medium-sized coffee roasters that mainly supply to restaurants, cafes, and hotels. The above-mentioned factor hampered the U.S. and European market growth rate in 2020. As a countereffect, consumer preference for home roasting grew and the COVID-19 pandemic boosted the sales of home roasters.

Coffee roasting enhances the flavor, aroma and increases the solubility of green coffee beans. The rate of solubility plays a crucial role in achieving the right extraction through grind size, time, and temperature. The roasted coffee has prompted an interest in quality coffee for many consumers. Coffee roasting has made it easier for coffee to experiment with innovative ways of brewing and has made coffee and brewing machines accessible on commercial and domestic platforms. The above-mentioned factors are boosting the business demand.

Market growth is also credited to the heightened product innovation and product launches around the world. The increasing product launches with the added functionality and improved characteristics are likely to attract more consumers and further boost the market growth. For instance, in January 2021, IKAWA Ltd. introduced a new coffee roaster, IKAWA Pro100. The roaster has a capacity of 120 gm and is extremely consistent, and easy to use. Also, U.S. Roasters Corp. launched a new heat recirculating solution, Revelation F5, in 2020.

Online distribution channel is expected to provide increased opportunities for the key players in the market. Convenience, ease of ordering, and changing consumer preferences are likely to drive the demand. Key players are also launching online portals tapping into the changing consumer shopping behavior. For instance, in March 2022, Breville Group Ltd. launched beanz.com, an e-commerce platform featuring around 50 specialty coffee roasters for residential use.

Europe is the largest exporter of ground and roasted coffee across the world. According to International Trade Centre (ITC), Europe exported over 84% of the total roasted coffee volume in 2018, amounting to 964 thousand tons. This factor bolsters coffee roaster demand across developed economies such as Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the U.K., and Poland.

Type Insights

Direct fire roasters accounted for 25% of the global market share, registering the 2nd highest share in the market. Direct fire roasters allow the green coffee beans to be in direct contact with the burner's flame, also called perforated drum roasters.

High demand from the consumer preferring strong coffee contributes to the higher segment share in the global market. Additionally, based on the type of wood also defines the end taste and aroma of the coffee, producing the special coffee product. However, this type of roaster also results in uneven baking with poor control heat that can easily form bitter coke.

Hot air is expected to witness 2nd fastest growth, registering a CAGR of 6.0% over the forecast period. This is mainly because it is one of the easiest ways to get great results using indirect heat. Hot air is pushed through the roasting chamber which roasts all the green coffee beans by surface contact and is majorly consumed in commercial and residential applications. This process results in light and even roasted coffee beans. Increasing expansion of commercial buildings and consumption of coffee at the office premises are significantly propelling the growth of the segment. Moreover, the rising trend of roasting coffee at home for personal consumption is driving the demand for hot air coffee roasters.

Half hot air segment accounts for over 20% market share in 2021. Half hot air segment is comprised of a machine utilizing direct fire as well as hot air for roasting coffee beans. Through this process heat can be circulated internally and fully utilized, shortening the roasting time. The short time period of roasting produces coffee beans with good taste and aroma profile.

Application Insights

Industrialization and urbanization in the developing economies is anticipated to contribute to the market growth. Increasing consumption of coffee in the Asia Pacific along with the health benefits of coffee and derived products is expected to drive the growth of the segment.

Global coffee roaster market share, by application, 2021 (%)

Commercial segment is anticipated to witness the highest growth in the market, registering a CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period. Commercial roasters are majorly consumed in cafes and restaurants. The rising number of coffee outlets/cafes is boosting the sales of the market. This factor is increasing the consumption of coffee roasters in the European region. Major brands such as Hottop, Aillio, and Gene, are known for manufacturing home roasting systems that produce quality products. Home/residential roasting is the process of roasting small batches of green coffee for personal consumption. Rising consumer preference to make homemade coffee and consumers' inclination towards complete freshness and aroma are anticipated to drive the market demand. However, the growth of home roasting is being hampered by the rise in commercial roasting businesses.
