Global Coffee Filter Paper Market Growth Sustained by Increasing Coffee Consumption Worldwide: FMI Study

ESOMAR-certified consulting firm Future Market Insights’ coffee filter paper market report expects a significantly positive outlook through 2021, expected to surpass nearly US$ 550 million. Rising demand for incorporating sustainable packaging solutions is primarily underpinning expansion prospects. Furthermore, FMI projects a CAGR of nearly 5% through 2031.

Global coffee consumption increased by 1.3% in FY 2020-21, as social distancing measures were enforced, reports the International Coffee Organization. While analysts project a significant upswing, apprehensions abound regarding a possible deficit onset. According to Brazilian forecasting agency CONAB, less than 50 million bags are likely to be harvested in April 2021, compared to 63 million bags the previous year. Hence, sales of coffee filters are likely to take a dip for the short term.

Fortunately, markets such as India are expected to post credible gains, with production likely to increase to 5.3 million bags, stimulated by favorable weather as yields of Arabica and Robusta varieties improve. In spite of the inconsistencies in coffee production, demand for coffee filter will continue rising amid adequate supply of coffee across organized retail sectors.  

“Prominent manufacturers are increasingly targeting emerging economies across the Asia-Pacific and South America, given their heightened global coffee production volumes, generating highly lucrative revenue pools for the upcoming forecast period,” remarks an FMI analyst.
