Understanding the Local Ingredient Preference is Key to Increased Regional Product Distribution
The production and sales of RTD coffee are majorly affected by the flavor and use of active ingredients that are used in those particular regions. Many companies are focusing on these aspects as a key strategy to expand their business and improve sales and distribution of RTD coffee in related regions. The Asia Pacific can be labeled as the leading region in terms of market value. The dominance of Asia Pacific can be attributed to the presence of several big companies that have adopted attractive business strategies. Companies such as Pepsi Co and Coca-Cola have had successful contributions in the RTD coffee market of Asia Pacific.
Besides the Asia Pacific, the RTD coffee market is also rising at a steady pace in other regions such as Europe and North America. Many companies are trying to expand their distribution channels and increasing their sale by introducing newer products. For instance, in 2018, SMARI launched its line of Icelandic Protein Coffee. In addition, it launched three new flavors of RTD coffee with the aim of using healthy ingredients within their products. In January 2018, Keurig Green Mountain completed the acquisition of soft drink company Dr. Pepper Snapple with an aim of introducing coffee as a soda alternative. Such noteworthy mergers and acquisitions have had a huge impact on the global Ready to Drink (RTD) Coffee Market and are likely to drive the market towards growth in the forecast period.
Cardboard based Packaging to be used Widely in the forthcoming years
An important part of any RTD coffee business is to provide suitable packaging. These packaging methods should suffice compliance standards and also be accepted by end users. Governments across the world are promoting the use of biodegradable and environmentally friendly packaging. The aforementioned factors have created the demand for alternatives to bottled and plastic packaging. As of 2017, bottles and canned packaging have dominated the market but the growing emphasis on biodegradable packaging is a major reason why cardboard-based packaging will be used widely in the forecast period.
RTD Coffee May Soon Replace Carbonated Energy Drinks
The advantages of RTD coffee and the possibilities of introducing numerous flavors have caught the eyes of companies producing beverages such as carbonated drinks. Energy drinks were seen to have the same effect as RTD coffee, but with lesser health benefits. Thus, the advent of healthy and keto-based coffee may lead to a shift of focus to RTD beverages and customers may prefer RTD coffee over carbonated drinks. Such factors will aid expansion in the global RTD market in the coming years.
