In response to a spike in cases of COVID-19 at the end of 2020 Norway imposed a ban on alcohol sales in Oslo from November 2020 to May 2021. As a result, bars/pubs stayed closed in Oslo during this period.
Home delivery continued to see strong growth in cafés/bars in 2021, but from a low base. The high cost of delivery and the limited interest from both companies and customers has struggled to attract investment.
Bankruptcies among cafés/bars have largely been avoided so far due to government support covering part of the fixed expenses such as rent along with the temporary closure of outlets to reduce costs. Fears of potential takeover by foreign investors or larger brands also remained unrealised during 2021.
After the huge setback in 2020 and the limited recovery seen in 2021, cafés/bars is set to see a return to pre-COVID-19 levels of attendance and consumption from 2022 onwards. While there remain concerns that further restrictions might be imposed were COVID-19 case numbers to rise sharply again this threat is seen as significantly lower heading into the forecast period.
Juice/smoothie bars seems stuck in a low growth cycle with these outlets facing growing competition from specialist coffee and tea shops. The latter not only offers similar drinks options alongside a range of hot drinks, but they also benefit from a stronger network of outlets.
Newcomers are more likely to be seen in cafés/bars over the forecast period than before the COVID-19 pandemic. This is due to the availability of good locations for outlets arising out of the closure of other operators, with many players struggling to survive the impact of the pandemic.
