Specialty Coffee Market Growth & Trends

The global specialty coffee market size is expected to reach USD 51,404.0 million by 2030, expanding at 11.3% CAGR from 2023 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc.The market expansion is anticipated to be fueled by the rising preference for ready-to-drink coffee and premium coffees and increasing number of coffee shops globally.

The growing demand for specialty coffee can be attributed to a variety of factors, including the desire for high-quality, flavorful coffee experiences, and increased awareness of ethical & sustainable sourcing practices. As coffee culture continues to thrive, consumers are seeking unique experiences, with specialty coffee shops and cafes serving as popular social destinations. Health-conscious individuals are also drawn to specialty coffee, which often uses higher quality beans and more refined roasting processes. Social media has further amplified interest in specialty coffee by showcasing new products and trends. In November 2021, Lavazza Group and Ducasse Paris have collaborated to establish a new specialty coffee range and brand. They've released seven coffee bean flavors, each with a unique blend of components.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the market for specialty coffee.The pandemic caused disruptions in the global supply chain, affecting the availability and cost of raw materials, including coffee beans. This resulted in higher prices for specialty coffee and potential shortages in some regions. However, with people staying home and working remotely, there was a surge in demand for online coffee sales and delivery services. Specialty coffee roasters and retailers pivoted to e-commerce platforms to cater to this demand, which helped mitigate some of the losses from in-person sales.
