Six Key Trends Shaping Global Hot Drinks

Occasion shifting

The disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a long-term realignment of consumption occasions. The at-home segment will play a more important role going forward than before, necessitating an adjustment in foodservice strategy.

Supply chain struggles

Temporary COVID-19-induced disruptions have turned into long-term issues for the industry and shortages, bottlenecks and cost pressures continue to cause problems. With few of the underlying issues resolved, supply chains will be a major issue for the foreseeable future.

Seeking sustainability

The hot drinks industry faces significant challenges from the changing global climate at the same time as a growing portion of the consumer base is actively seeking out more sustainable products.

A caffeine paradox

Demand for caffeinated energy grows continuously, with coffee and tea providing the strong majority of global caffeination. At the same time, consumers are also focusing more on mindfulness and quality sleep, creating a complex situation with opportunity in both high- and low-caffeine products.

Digital advances

Gains in online ordering and shopping are slowing down from their explosive pandemic growth rates but digitalisation remains important and more of the industry continues to shift online.

Into the cold

New-style cold beverages such as cold brew and nitro have gained a major presence in North America and are increasingly appearing elsewhere around the world. This has made RTD coffee into a top performer in multiple regions and led to a series of category-blurring products such as hard coffee.
