Global Dairy Alternatives Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Health Benefits of Dairy Alternatives

The health benefits offered by dairy alternatives compared to regular milk products acts as a major driving factor for the market growth. Several studies have proved that dairy alternatives are healthier since they have fewer calories, less fat, more water content, as well as some other vitamins. It is also suggested to growing children (above the age of 2) who may be allergic to dairy. With rising health consciousness among consumers, especially young adults, the demand for dairy alternatives is projected to surge in the forecast period.

Increasing Launches of a Wide Range of Products

With significant growth potential, dairy alternative companies are increasingly launching new products to boost their sales and grab a larger share in the market. The companies are launching products of various tastes, quantities, and price ranges to target every age group and economical value. For instance, Bel Brands USA recently announced plans to be expanding its plant-based line called Nurishh. Oatside, a Singaporean company, also recently launched “Asia’s first” oat milk brand as a plant-based milk alternatives brand.

Restraints

High Cost of Dairy Alternatives Products

The high cost of dairy alternative products compared to traditional animal products may act as a huge restraining factor for the market growth. According to a report published in Forbes, half a gallon of soy milk costs USD 3.99 to USD 4.29 compared to USD 2.39 to USD 2.49 for half a gallon of regular fat-free and reduced-fat milk. Food giants such as Starbucks also take up the upcharge of the demand for soy milk or other plant-based milk. This may limit the demand for dairy alternative products, especially among middle and low-income consumers.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Dairy Alternatives Market

The unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic outbreak provided lucrative growth opportunities to the global dairy alternatives market. Although the market was initially halted due to lockdown restrictions and obstruction in the distribution channels, which created a huge shortage of supplies in the supermarkets/hypermarkets and online stores. However, the surge in consumer awareness towards zoonotic diseases post the pandemic prompted them to limit or stop their animal products consumption, which resulted in a dramatic surge in the demand for dairy alternatives products. Furthermore, increasing health consciousness during the pandemic also favored the overall market growth.
