Despite having the lowest spend per consumer, Asia Pacific is the third largest contributor to the global coffee market. Driven by its large population and rising middle class, factors driving growth in Asia Pacific are different from those in North America and Western Europe.

Coffee sales in Asia Pacific ranked third despite low consumer spend

Asia Pacific is the third largest coffee market globally, after Western Europe and North America despite its low spend per capita. In 2016, each consumer in Asia Pacific spends just USD4 on coffee, a fraction of the USD42 and USD38 spent by their counterparts in Western Europe and North America, respectively. Despite this, Asia Pacific is still a significant region, contributing as much as North America in global retail value sales.

Japan leads in Asia Pacific but significant growth is seen in Southeast Asian markets

Accounting for 30% of coffee sales within Asia Pacific in 2016, Japan is the leading coffee market. With the market’s maturity, however, growth in the region comes largely from Indonesia and the Philippines. Unlike Japan where consumption is driven by high-value products, consumption in Southeast Asian markets is driven by affordable products.

Coffee is highly consolidated in Asia Pacific

The coffee industry in Asia Pacific is highly consolidated. Private label has little presence. In leading markets, such as Japan, Indonesia and South Korea, the top five players command over 60% value share.

Traditional grocery retailers is the preferred channel in emerging markets

With the exception of China and Malaysia, where modern grocery retailers account for over 70% of coffee sales, traditional stores is an extremely important channel for the distribution of coffee in Asia Pacific. The importance of traditional stores is especially evident in key markets such as Indonesia and the Philippines.
