DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 17, 2018--The "Global Ready-to-Drink (RTD) Coffee Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global RTD coffee market is expected to be valued at USD 9.68 billion in 2018, registering a CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period (2018-2023).

The instant nature and convenience offered by RTD coffee are important drivers. The nature of the product makes it a highly trend-driven market, and as such a certain element of innovation is constantly in demand.

Regarding the major access points, iced products with longer shelf life provide major opportunities, along with liquid coffee concentrates and frozen concentrates. The latter holds importance for bulk buyers, such as restaurants and offices.

The major constraint for the global RTD coffee market is in adapting to regional tastes and preferences. Specific regions, where consumers are habituated to hot or freshly ground coffee, take a considerable time and reluctance in adapting to the new tastes. Extensive marketing and use of locally sourced products are essential in countering this perception.
