Growth Drivers

Surging demand for extended shelf-life of food and beverages

A spurring demand for food products with prolonged shelf life, an increased consumption of milk and dairy products, and an increase in the application of UHT technology in new product development are expected to boost the growth of Saudi Arabia UHT milk market.

Restraints

High initial investments

Instead of installing UHT processing equipment, manufacturers seek more cost-effective alternatives. Compared to UHT facilities, processing equipment, such as pasteurizer units, require less initial investment and save on annual maintenance costs. As specialized equipment is necessary for treating the target products as well as making multiple packages utilizing diverse raw materials, the initial capital investment for UHT processing equipment is expensive. As a result, the mix of these problems prevents manufacturers from entering the UHT processing market, functioning as a restraint for the overall market growth.
