Sweden’s instant coffee market is estimated to be valued at US$58.931 million in 2020 and is projected to decline by 1.84% during the forecast period.
Sweden is considered one of the countries in the European region after Finland and Scandinavia, which has one of the highest consumptions of coffee among the different age groups and the exuberance of its coffee culture. The workplaces in Sweden follow a common workplace culture, which is referred to by the term “fika”, which essentially translates to having a coffee. Working individuals take one break or two breaks around the time of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to consume a cup of high-quality coffee and it has even gained popularity as an ethical trend. Generally, whole bean coffee or coffee pods are preferred due and added to the Keurifg or other coffee machines by individuals. In addition, the consumption of coffee has even increased in some of the more developed and larger cities, such as Gothenburg and Stockholm. Thus, these factors have led to a fall in the demand for instant coffee and are slowing the growth of the instant coffee market over the forecast period.
