Coffee Filter Paper Market likely to Grow Moderately at 4.9% CAGR during the assessment period 2022 – 2030

The global coffee filter paper market is bound to grow on a reverberating note between 2022 and 2030, reaching US$ 877.8 Mn by the year 2030, at a CAGR of 4.9%. Rising demand for coffee as a part of routine has created a significant demand for coffee filter paper in the last couple of years.

Manufacturers are enjoying consistent demand for coffee filter papers as the rising consumption of coffee is not just seen in the matured markets of Europe and North America, but also in rapidly growing and developing markets in South and East Asia.

Global coffee consumption increased by 1.3% in FY 2020-22, 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.
