Cold Brew Coffee Market Synopsis

Cold Brew Coffee Market is expected to register a CAGR of 14.01% and reach USD 654.91 Million by 2027. Cold brew coffee is made with roasted, ground coffee. The coffee is steeped in water at ambient or cooler temperatures. The steeping and brewing process often requires 12 to 24 hours. Factors such as contact time, temperature, roast level, grind size, pressure, and steeping method influence the final brew composition and flavor of the final product. The growth of the market is directly proportional to the demand for on-the-go beverages due to extensive promotional activities by market players about their recent launches across the globe. However, the wide availability of substitute products such as iced tea, iced matcha drinks, and cold herbal teas are estimated to pose limitations for the growth of the cold brew coffee industry.

Market Dynamics

The cold brew coffee market is expected to register significant growth during the forecast period. The cold brewing process requires the use of room-temperature or cold water, which makes the coffee taste slightly sweeter, milder, and less acidic than regular coffee. Cold brew coffee has gained popularity in recent years owing to the rising awareness regarding its benefits such as low acidic and caffeine content. Additionally, high demand for on-the-go drinks has significantly contributed to the rising requirement for cold brew coffee. Moreover, developing countries offer opportunities for the players in the global market. However, easy availability of a variety of substitutes such as regular coffee, tea, and traditional beverages are expected to restrain the growth of the market. Fluctuating raw material prices and high competition are major challenges faced by manufacturers.
