Australia's coffee culture has kept revenue brewing in the Coffee Shops industry over the past five years. The proliferation of coffee drinking has caused an explosion in the number of small boutique coffee houses, especially in inner-city locations where office workers congregate during the morning coffee rush. Coffee drinking is entrenched in the daily routines of many Australian consumers, which supported industry demand even during the global financial crisis. As a result, industry revenue is forecast to rise by an annualised 3.0% over the five years through 2014-15. This includes a forecast increase of 1.9% in 2014-15, to total $2.3 billion.
This industry consists of shops that sell coffee, other hot and cold beverages and light snacks to consumers. This industry excludes establishments with table service and made-to-order meals.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
