COVID-19 Insights:

COVID-19 had a significant impact on the German Instant Coffee Market. The rapid spread of active cases led to the enforcement of a nationwide lockdown and social distancing measures in Germany. Subsequently, multiple coffee houses, cafes, and food outlets were closed, showing a sharp decline in revenue. Nonetheless, the consumption of instant coffees at home increased, showing the growth in domestic sales. The development of the e-commerce segment further boosted the growth.
