The chicory-free coffee market was valued at US$31,482.04 million in 2021.

It is anticipated that the chicory-free coffee industry will expand rapidly throughout the projected period. The only ingredients used to make coffee without chicory are roasted and ground coffee beans. Most people are familiar with this type of coffee since it is more traditional. In contrast to coffee made using chicory, it often has a richer and stronger coffee flavour. Chicory's absence enables the natural flavours and smells of the coffee beans to stand out more. There are several ways to make coffee without chicory, including drip brewing, espresso, French press, and more.

Growing preference for chicory-free coffee

The coffee's flavour profile is softer and less complex without chicory. It highlights the underlying qualities of the coffee beans itself and lets their flavours come through. The flavour may be smoother and simpler without chicory, focusing more on the natural sweetness, acidity, and scent of the coffee. Even while the flavour profile may change overall in the absence of chicory, filter coffee that appeals to people who like a more delicate and understated flavour may still be produced fueling the chicory-free coffee market growth.

Consumer awareness of the disadvantages of chicory consumption

Oral, skin-related (urticaria or skin rash), and respiratory symptoms like asthma are signs of an allergic response to chicory. Chicory consumption in excess can exacerbate gallstones by an unclear mechanism.  The high levels of fibre in chicory can contribute to digestive issues including bloating, gas, and abdominal discomfort if ingested in excess. A study published in the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology revealed that consuming inulin from chicory regularly encourages the formation of beneficial gut bacteria and may enhance gut function.

Instances of chicory allergy

Chicory should be avoided if a person has birch pollen allergies since it might make your symptoms worse. According to a paper published in the Journal of Allergy, chicory is one of several fruits and vegetables that contain birch-like chemicals and can cause problems in sensitive people's oral cavities. This implies that after consuming chicory, individuals can encounter problems including throat and tongue soreness, tingling, and discomfort. This has led to significant development in the chicory-free coffee industry.

Growing popularity of roasted coffee

Chicory-free coffee is manufactured from the roasted and crushed roots of many plants, including dandelion. It lowers the risk of rheumatism, respiratory issues, heart illnesses, and gallstones. Some individuals find the very bitter flavour of roasted coffee without chicory tolerable enough to drink without cream or sugar. Roasted coffee beans contain pulverised B. Capra or B. tunica root which is considered flavorable by many consumers and is upsurging the chicory-free coffee market.

Development of supplemental goods

Increased demand for supplemental goods and energy bars as a result of health consciousness is fueling the chicory-free coffee market growth. Throughout the projection period, the chicory-free coffee market is being driven by consumers in developed nations who are becoming more aware of the disadvantages of chicory. It is envisaged that consumers who care about their health may indirectly affect chicory consumption by choosing beef products with fewer chemicals and antibiotics.

In the Asia Pacific region, it is projected that the chicory-free coffee market will grow steadily. 

During the projection period, the Asia Pacific region is anticipated to have faster growth. This is due to rising public awareness, increasing investments from major international players, and expanding economic advances. The chicory-free coffee industry is anticipated to rise as a result of the region's densely populated nations having greater rates of chronic disorders including obesity and cardiac problems. The demand and growth possibilities for the chicory-free coffee market in the Asia Pacific are further fueled by the expanding food and beverage sector.
