    Compatibles driving sales of single serve capsules

    The new report from AMI Consulting in cooperation with Plastic Technologies Inc., published in October 2018, is an authoritative comprehensive deep-dive analysis of the global Single Serve Beverage Capsules industry.

    Single serve capsules are a dynamic market segment with a complex value chain. There are several coffee brewing systems available with proprietary capsule designs. Nespresso and Keurig are brands that pioneered the segment and have the highest machine instalment rates globally. Nevertheless, the expiry of their design patents in 2012 brought about disruptive changes in the supply chain. The changes created new opportunities for both end-users and converters to tap into this growing market segment.  On the other hand, the supply chain of capsules is rapidly losing its oligopolistic nature and the former dominance of major suppliers is challenged as the market expands. A more fragmented supply chain affects the overall profit pool and the way consumers make their choices.
