Arabica is the most popular bean type, by revenue share, in the overall UAE Coffee Market – 6Wresearch
A shift towards urbanization in the general population of the country, accompanied by an increase in adoption of the Western consumer culture has underpinned the recent growth of the UAE coffee market. Another source of coffee demand had been the burgeoning tourism and hospitality sector of the country - however, COVID put the brakes on this otherwise promising trend. The shutdown of cafes and restaurants along with a sharp decline in the incoming international visitors led to quite the struggle for the retail coffee industry.
However, the market pivoted and demand for coffee-at-home boomed during this time period as lockdowns and home-quarantines meant more people were consuming coffee at home than ever before. This led to a significant increase in the e-commerce coffee market in the country. Finally, with restrictions having been relaxed, the tourism and hospitality sector is predicted to make up lost ground in a short span of time.
According to 6Wresearch, the UAE Coffee Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.3% in terms of revenues during 2021-2027. Consumption of coffee is a key characteristic of the Western culinary culture and with the increasing ‘Westernization’ of the general UAE populace along with increase in living standards in cities such as Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah, more people are becoming coffee-drinkers. As more multinational coffee chains and cafes also set up shop in the UAE to cater to this rising demand, the UAE coffee market is poised for growth in the next few years.
The boost in online coffee sales is predicted to maintain its momentum in the coming years in UAE, supported by the country’s high speed internet services and increasing penetration of smartphones.
According to Rahul Dubey, Research Analyst, 6Wresearch, “Arabica remained the most widely sold bean type in the overall UAE coffee market due to its widespread and easy availability. This trend is expected to persist in the coming years as more people, from all age groups, continue to opt for it due to its unique and sweet taste.”
Some of the major players in the market include Nestle S.A., Luigi Lavazza S.p.A., J.M. Smucker Company, Zino Davidoff Group, JDE Peet's NV Emirati Coffee LLC, Coffee Planet LLC, etc.
