This report supplies information on the competitive performances of the operators of the Italian market of professional espresso machines: competitive performances by segment, market shares by segment, by distribution channel, breakdown by geographical area, production shares and export quotas by destination countries are studied in depth in this report.
This report will focus on companies that produce professional espresso coffee machines, including production and sales of replacement parts for these machines. Most espresso machines produced in Italy are of the traditional variety. These are machines with filter holders, which require manual operations to grind the coffee beans, load and insert the ground coffee, brew the drink and discard the waste.
Traditional espresso machines require a well-trained bartender to grind the coffee to an appropriate consistency, regulate dosage, tamp the ground coffee in the filter holder and brew the coffee for the right amount of time. However, technological innovations in the sector have made these skills less indispensable over time, as many of these processes are automated in newer categories of professional machines, called semi-automatic and automatic.
Unlike completely manual (lever-driven) espresso machines, semi-automatic machines have volumetric pumps to automate the process of brewing the coffee by passing water through the filter and into the cup.
However, semi-automatic machines still require a bartender to determine the brewing time. In automatic machines, the entire process from ground coffee to the cup is automated. Super-automatic machines go further than automatic machines, as the entire espresso preparation process is automated (grinding, dosage, brewing and clean-up of waste coffee). These machines can even be programmed to brew single or double shots, and the strength of the coffee can be regulated. This type of coffee machine is becoming more and more popular abroad, where the espresso preparation process is not widely known, even among professional operators.
The sector can be broken down into the following segments:
• traditional espresso machines:
– manual (lever-driven)
• super-automatic machines
Databank’s methodology for Competitors reports begins with a careful screening to identify the main organisations that are representative of a given sector. Several one-to-one interviews are then conducted with the selected organisations. Questionnaires are sent to all the leading companies on an annual basis. The information collected is then verified by an expert in the particular sector using a system of counterchecks to guarantee that the information is entirely reliable and consistent. The process is then completed using Cerved Group’s proprietary information about Italian enterprises. All Competitors reports also include details concerning the strategies and performances of the leading companies in each sector.
