Second most consumed drink in the world, after water, coffee saw its market grow with home office, which benefited the category of coffee makers which, from January to November 2020, recorded an increase of 23% in revenue compared to 2019, according to research firm GfK. “The taste of Brazilians for the drink and the offer of practical and accessible products help positively when buying a coffee maker”, says Flávia Bertocco di Celio, marketing manager of Newell Brands, owner of the Cadence brand.
When people eat at home these days, the home office break with coffee has taken on a new meaning. “Families are looking for more and more comfort and practicality. Analyzing the development of the market and the growth of coffee consumption in capsules and in powder, we launched several models with differentiated design”, says Raphael Benedetti, marketing manager at Groupe SEB, owner of the Arno brand.
Brazilians are going through what the market calls the third wave of consumption, says Darci Friedbel, Commercial Director of Tramontina. “Brazilians have been looking for quality coffees and diversified ways to extract a good drink. Without being able to frequent their favorite coffee shops, they invest a little more to enjoy quality coffee at home. Thus, the segment of coffee makers and coffee grinders registered growth of over 20% in 2020.”
From January to November 2020, the category of coffee makers had a 23% increase in revenue compared to the same period in 2019.
The economic and behavioral changes that have occurred around the world in recent months have changed habits and generated an increase in sales of premium machines, says Thaiane Cortez, marketing manager of Philips Walita. “Compared to the first semesters of 2020 and 2019, the sales value has increased by an average of 12%, which shows the great development trend in the category with high-end products.”
COFFEE WITH WARM BREAD
Britânia and Philco have several models of coffee makers and toasters. “Brazilians are great consumers of coffee and the convenience that the products offer facilitates the preparation to start the day”, says the executive director Cristiane Hansen. “Coffee is part of the daily life and history of the country. It is from the consumer’s need to save time that opportunities arise in the market for electric coffee makers and toasters that provide superior experience in taste and quality”, says Carla Goes de Barros, marketing and product Manager at Lenoxx.
Just the fact that you do not have to go out to buy bread every day contributes to the increased use of the toaster, as it allows you to heat frozen bread, says Giovanni Marins Cardoso, co-founder of Mondial Eletrodomésticos. “And the electric coffee maker is a national need. It helps in preparing the drink and is always at hand. Brazilians consume coffee several times during the day.”
In the market for a long time, the toaster showed more strength in 2020 in some regions of the country and joined the coffee makers, always well sold, says Flávia Bordin, manager of Multilaser appliances products. Another reason for growth is the agility to prepare a coffee with toasted bread, says the marketing manager at Black + Decker, Marta Schulz. “The main motivation for buying these products is the passion of Brazilians for coffee. Practicality also drives the category.”
MARKET IN 2021
From May 2020, when people realized they would have to stay at home longer, marketing increased. “We anticipate growth in coffee maker sales for 2021, in the wave of expansion we saw in the second half of 2020. The convenience of the product, combined with the daily needs in the kitchen makes it extremely popular”, says Giovanni, from Mondial Eletrodomésticos.
The habit of having an espresso at home also increases sales. “Our expectation is for growth for special coffee machines, as there is a movement to change patterns, demands and consumption trends”, says Thaiane, Philips Walita. “In Brazil, a lot of coffee is still consumed in filter, but there are countless other ways that we are learning to appreciate. Therefore, we understand that there is a lot of potential for this market”, says Darci, Tramontina.
Ground coffee, espresso or capsule machines are booming. “Most Brazilians still make their breakfast and afternoon coffee at home. In addition, we went through the renovation of these machines at a time of greater use in the home and especially in the sophistication of consumer habits, which seeks machines with a better finish, new systems and more practical”, says Raphael, Groupe SEB.
Meeting the needs of its audience is the focus of Cadence, says Flávia, Newell Brands. “The expectation for these products remains positive. We want to keep working to increase our sales and to do this we are constantly investing in the development of items with designs and colors that offer added value.”
For the Britânia and Philco brands, the expectation is for growth with the launch of new models for both coffee makers and toasters, according to Cristiane. The Multilaser expects to expand the line of coffee makers and toasters in 2021, to offer more options to customers, says Flávia.
Coffee makers and toasters have a strong relationship with family habits, says Marta, Black+Decker. “We have an incredible positive expectation. People are increasingly valuing family life, which ultimately affects the growth of categories like coffee makers and toasters.”
“For the next year, we see a positive scenario, considering the perspective of the gradual recovery of the economy in the post-pandemic. And we believe that the reheating of consumption has the potential to further expand the prospects of our product line”, comments Carla, Lenoxx.
