Single-serve capsules | market report


Group), and Menshen have all followed this route.


Injection moulded capsule share


is growing versus thermoforming, driven by demand for “value” low oxygen barrier capsules that are compatible with Nespresso machines. This type of capsule is relatively easy to produce and the investment in moulds can be amortised quickly. Consequently, the barrier to market entry is much lower than for high-barrier thermoformed capsules, especially for production with integrated extrusion. Nonetheless, medium and high-barrier options are also accessible for injection moulders and many are taking steps in this direction. Continuous compression moulding is a newly


adopted technology in the capsule segment. Sacmi, the leader in compression moulding technology for the caps and closures market, has recently successfully implemented a number of its CCM systems for produc- tion of capsules with Italian partners.


Technical requirements Single-serve capsules should not be considered a “simple” package – their design often includes complexities that are not immediately apparent. Plastic Technologies Inc (PTI) has carried out research into the major commercially available systems to baseline the materials being used, the structures they were assembled into, the resulting barrier (oxygen, water


vapour transmission rates) attributes, and the impact on taste to produce a comprehensive analysis of package type. The data reviews all


requirements, which may start with an iconic design to build brand equity. This iconic shape will be directly interacting with the dispens- ing appliance, so it has to be intuitive enough to make the consumer experience as simple


and pleasurable as possible. Once in the appliance this


“package” becomes an integral element of the beverage preparation system itself. Even in the less sophisticated systems, the capsule will have at least one or two functions such as filtration, opening or dispensing. In more advanced systems, the capsule will trigger the opening process, create the right amount of foam or crema, communicate with the appliance about the contents, adapt to pressure and temperature, and provide proper dissolution or mixing. This list of functions and requirements has grown with every new system created for different applications over the years. While it is easy to get excited about


the possibilities of the next state of the art system it is important to maintain focus on the primary function of the package, which is to dispense and protect the contents. As the
