Global Instant Coffee Market to Grow at a CAGR of 4.9% During 2024-2032, Driven by the Growing Coffee Culture and Rising Premium Coffee Demand at Home

Global Instant Coffee Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Instant Coffee Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the market attained a value billion of about USD 13.15 billion in 2023. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.9% in the forecast period of 2024-2032 to reach a value of nearly USD 20.26 billion by 2032.

Europe holds a significant market portion of the instant coffee market share due to the affordability and shelf life of instant coffee. The majority of the two to three cups of coffee that British drink each day are consumed at home. According to the British Coffee Association, for in-home consumption, 70% of UK households prefer instant coffee. Thus, the sale of instant coffee continues to dominate British in-home consumption, making the UK one of the most significant markets globally.


Arabica coffee is mostly preferred worldwide due to its smoother textures and better taste over Robusta. Approximately 75% of the coffee produced worldwide is produced by the Arabica variety, which is the most prevalent species on the market. The Asia Pacific is the fastest-growing region in the market due to the robust coffee culture in densely populated countries like China and India.


New product launches expand the market expansion. In April 2023, Nestle S.A. (SWX: NESN) launched its first instant coffee specifically made for iced beverages in response to the growing demand for cold coffee at home. 15% of coffee is consumed cold worldwide. With the growing desire to recreate café-style cold coffee experiences at home, Generation Z is demanding premium ice coffees at home, which has contributed to a rise in iced coffee consumption. The Nescafé Ice Roast product was first launched in China, followed by Mexico. The company also launched Nescafé Black Roast and Nescafé Roastery Collection to satisfy consumer demand for premium instant coffee.
