Key Market Issues
Higher growth for iced/rtd coffee drinks continues to be curtailed by both its premium pricing positioning and, in some countries, by a lack of tradition of consuming cold coffee
Iced/rtd coffee drinks are subject to some competition from the energy drinks category due to the caffeine stimulus it offers and the development of crossover products such as energy coffees. Where the base formulation of an energy coffee is an energy drink and coffee is only the flavoring, Canadean categorizes the product as an energy drink
Whilst there remains a strong bias to consumption through on-premise channels at global level, off-premise sales are slowly gaining share, aided by the activities of the major producers, new entrants and the retailers' response with Private Label
Iced/rtd coffee drinks now represent the smallest component of the soft drinks spectrum, having been overtaken by energy drinks in 2011
Metal can continues to account for just under 40% of all iced/rtd coffee drinks; although share is very gradually being edged backwards.
Whilst carton still ranks as the second most popular pack type, 2011 saw strong growth in PET bottle usage (over 5%), driven primarily by the popularity and range of size formats for iced/rtd coffee drinks in the key Asia region.
