Coffee recorded off-trade value growth of 9% in 2012 to reach Won1.6 trillion. Instant coffee had the biggest value ratio with 94% of total coffee market. Instant coffee product satisfied consumers with different taste in sugar consumption. The product packages were usually designed to allow consumers to adjust sugar



amount to their preference, packed in a tube-shaped package while sugar was concentrated on one side of the tube. This allowed consumers to easily control sugar level by holding on to that end.

Off-trade constant value of coffee is expected to grow by CAGR of 4%. Korean consumers are becoming more sophisticated about coffee taste and prefer premium products. Coffee market in 2012 is still dominated by instant mix coffee. However in other countries like Italy, France, and the US, fresh coffee has the highest sales ratio.

Even though coffee grew very strongly over the review period, there is still room to grow when looking at sharply increasing chained speciality coffee shops and imported coffee volume and value.
