Global Coffee Packaging Market: Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026


Packaging plays an important role in determining the decisive roles in the revenue of widely used consumer beverages that includes coffee owing to the factor that in modern days everything is delivered in packaging systems and effective packaging symbolizes the consumer’s acceptance of any product. Trend shows that majority of the young population prefers coffee as a refreshment drink and hence unique packaging strategies adopted by key players increases the value offering through introduction of new coffee brands.

The average expiry time of coffee is 12 to 18 months and hence effective packaging is required to protect the coffee content. Packaging protects coffee from various factors that includes temperature, spillage and humidity among others. In addition, aroma of the product is kept intact through coffee packaging. Coffee packaging also provides protection against direct contact with oxygen which can create harmful microorganisms in coffee thereby reducing the flavor. Hence, design of effective, strong and fit for purpose packaging solutions is an important contributor to maintain freshness in the global coffee industry.
