France instant coffee market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 2.35% to reach a value of US$528.186 million by 2027, from US$448.797 million in 2020.

The rising disposable income of the individuals is leading them to consume speciality and instant coffee owing to their hectic work life and thus contributing to the market growth over the forecast period.

Rapid industrialization and urbanization have led to an increase in job opportunities that has facilitated a rise in the disposable income among the middle-income and low-income individuals in the population and increased their spending power. This is allowing them to consume speciality instant coffee blends as the workload has increased in the past few years, leaving them with lesser time to prepare premium beverages such as coffee.  Instant coffees such as Instant Latte are increasingly preferred by the French population. They are leading to a surge in demand for instant coffee, thereby propelling the market growth over the forecast period.

The preference of individuals for consume-out-of-home and freshly brewed coffee and the rise in the demand for pod machines are posing as an obstacle to the instant coffee market growth.

France displays a rich coffee-drinking culture, and generally, the majority of the individuals that drink coffee prefer drinking in small amounts for taste and relaxation purposes rather than caffeinating or other purposes. In addition, according to the survey carried out by the World Coffee Portal in 2019, around one-third of the consumers in France visit a coffee shop 4-5 times a week and prefer to consume domestic brands and products, Marie Blachère, Paul, and La Croissanterie, which contribute to the domination of the domestic brands in France.

Moreover, coffee pods have risen in popularity in the last few years owing to the proliferation of coffee pod machines in the developed regions, which is attributable significantly to the rising spending power among middle-income and high-income individuals. Thus, these factors are acting as an obstacle to market growth.
