The global green coffee market size was USD 34.02 billion in 2020. The market is projected to grow from USD 35.40 billion in 2021 to USD 47.22 billion by 2028 at a CAGR of 4.20% in the 2021-2028 period. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with witnessing a negative/positive impact on demand across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a lower of 0.10% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

The industry is witnessing prominent growth across the globe. The increasing demand for plant-based dietary supplements, functional food, and beverages has significantly increased the demand for green coffee beans. The rising demand for specialty coffee varieties across developing and developed markets is expected to fuel the market growth during the forecast period.


Disruption in Coffee Supply Chain during COVID-19 Pandemic to Affect Market Growth  

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly affected the market with an unprecedented supply and demand shock to the global coffee sector. In March 2020, when COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO), coffee prices have been highly volatile, primarily due to supply chain disruptions. A consistent decrease followed the initial sudden increase in prices that has foreshadowed the coffee demand and has considerably affected various coffee importing countries. At the end of June 2020, the International Coffee Organization (ICO) composite indicator fell below USD 100 cents/lb mark. The COVID-19 has posed an enormous challenge to the global coffee sector that has experienced a prolonged period of low prices. However, coffee bean extract is gaining admiration due to its perceived health effects. The increasing demand for health-improving ingredients in dietary supplements and nutraceuticals would fuel the market growth in the foreseeable years.

Rising Popularity of Nutraceuticals & Dietary Supplements to Drive Market Growth

Consumer purchasing behavior has shifted significantly towards selecting healthful product varieties that have improved overall physical wellness in the past few years. The consumer interest in food ingredients having functional properties has increased considerably due to their safer counterparts. The modern-day consumer lifestyle has increased the prevalence of lifestyle-related health conditions such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disorders.

Nutraceuticals and dietary supplements are gaining traction among consumers to enhance health. In the past few years, plant extracts containing active ingredients have become more prevalent in dietary supplements as they are perceived to be healthier and safer. Green coffee bean extracts are now widely used in nutraceuticals in the form of powder and liquid. Functional beverages containing these extracts are dominating the retail aisles across European and North American countries. The growing concerns regarding health during and after the pandemic are driving the green coffee market growth in the foreseeable years.


Growing Knowledge Regarding Health Benefits of Green Coffee among Consumers to Drive Market Growth

Green coffee beans are a major source of chlorogenic acid, an antioxidant that can be readily absorbed in the body. This knowledge regarding the high antioxidant content in the product has considerably increased its demand in the past few years. Bean extracts are extensively utilized in dietary supplements and functional beverages to improve their nutritional profile.

Studies have highlighted that chlorogenic acid present in the product helps maintain healthy blood glucose levels. Green coffee bean extracts containing beverages are now witnessing heightened sales across retail outlets as most of them claim to improve weight loss. The growing concerns related to obesity and lifestyle-related health disorders such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases would also drive the market growth during the forecasted period.

Rising Popularity of Specialty Coffee to Fuel Market Growth Significantly

The increasing discretionary income levels among consumers in Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America have significantly amplified the demand for high-value food and beverages. Consumers nowadays are ready to spend more on better quality products that have enticing tastes and flavors. Specialty coffee is gaining popularity among consumers due to its diversified origins and flavors. Specialty coffees are different from regular coffees as they are grown at higher elevations and are traceable and processed carefully after harvest.

Coffee varieties from Kenya, Colombia, Guatemala, and Ethiopia are popular across European and North American countries. The emerging trend of healthy coffee varieties with known origins also fuels the demand among consumers. Specialty coffee is gaining traction among millennials as it is perceived as a better quality and high-value product. The leading coffee manufacturers such as Olam and Starbucks are focused on investing in new specialty coffee product launches to expand their portfolio. Thus, the factors mentioned above would boost the market growth in the future markets.


Price Volatility of Coffee Bean to Act as a Key Restraint for Market Growth

Coffee has been the most highly traded commodity after oil as it is one of the most popular beverages in the world. The U.S., European Union (EU), and Japan are the largest importers of coffee beans in the world. Specialty, fair-traded, organic, and bird-friendly coffee varieties have given rise to new trends in traditional coffee importing markets such as the U.S., E.U., and Japan. Coffee import values have significantly increased in the past decade, more than 100% in most regions such as the Asia Pacific and the Middle East. Coffee price volatility has been significantly higher due to weather, disease, and external shocks.

According to the International Coffee Organization (ICO), In September 2021, coffee bean prices reached new record highs. According to the ICO, monthly average price of coffee increased by 6.2% to USD 170.02 cents/lb in September 2021 from USD 160.14 cents/lb in August 2021. The cost of production has been rising in many coffee-producing countries, according to the International Coffee Organization. Therefore, the price volatility of coffee beans is likely to hamper the market in the forthcoming years.
