Fast-paced lifestyles of consumers: a major market driver

Fast-paced lifestyles of consumers are one of the major factors driving the global RTD tea and coffee market. The fast-paced lifestyles of consumers today make it difficult for them to find the time to prepare food and beverages from scratch. Therefore, consumers are increasingly looking for RTD products that fulfill their daily nutrition requirements and can be consumed on-the-go. Owing to this, RTD products such as RTD tea and coffee are becoming popular among consumers, especially in North America and Europe. Furthermore, players are concentrating on new urban regions such as Asian, Latin American, and Eastern European countries as many unharnessed opportunities still exist in these regions.

APAC: largest RTD tea and coffee market

The RTD tea and coffee market in APAC is predicted to register a steady growth during the forecast period due to factors such as the presence of fast-growing economies, massive urbanization, rising disposable income of consumers, and growing café culture. Leading café chains such as Starbucks and Costa are opening their retail outlets in this region to capitalize on the growing trend. In countries such as China, the introduction of new still RTD tea and coffee ranges has been improving the overall sales of these non-alcoholic beverages. In countries such as Japan, consumers have now started shifting from hot tea to iced tea, which is an emerging trend that will have a significant impact on the sales of still RTD tea products.

According to Manjunath Reddy, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on non-alcoholic beverages, “Product premiumization is another emerging trend in China and Australia that will change the dynamics of the RTD tea and coffee market in APAC during the forecast period. This has encouraged many leading players to upgrade their existing range by including innovative and premium beverages in unique flavors.”
