Japan’s instant coffee market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.85 %, from US$3189.909 million in 2020 to US$4154.707 million in 2027.

The popularity of coffee is spreading and causing the demand for the instant variant to rise in ranks owing to the influence of the western cultures among the younger population.

The influence of the European coffee drinking culture has positively affected the hot beverage consuming practices of Japan. It has led to a rise in the demand for coffee among the younger and adolescent population. This has not only led to the younger consumers drinking instant coffee out of home in speciality cafes and branded coffee shops but also encouraged them to prepare instant coffee at home, which has led to a spike in demand for different types of instant coffee, such as freeze-dried and spray-dried type.

The popularity of consuming tea in Japan is still relevant and is preferred by a majority of middle-aged and older-aged individuals.

Tea is an increasingly popular beverage consumed by middle-aged and older individuals in Japan. Interestingly it is considered a vital part of their culture and a significant ritual among Japanese individuals. The popularity of tea is high in Japan due to its importance in Buddhism culture, and it is famous for mainly medicinal purposes. Tea is consumed as a ritual generally after the guests have had their dinner and are particularly respected all over Japan. Thus, this demand for tea and consumption trends are acting as a restraining factor for market growth.

COVID-19 Insights:

COVID-19 had a significant impact on the Japanese instant coffee market. The deployment of complete lockdown led to the closure of the multiple institutions, corporations, food outlets, and many other public places, causing the sales to decline in these segments. Nevertheless, the domestic sales witnessed a surge in demand owing to its convenience and consumer stockpiling trend.
