Market Overview and Dynamics: Consumption of Dairy Alternatives to rise during the Forecast Period
The global market for dairy alternatives is expected to observe an impressive increase of over 10% over the forecast period. A shift in the preference of consumers for plant-based foods because of environmental issues aids the market’s expansion.
The global dairy alternatives market is expected to experience a strong expansion over the next 6 years, driven mainly by the growing demand for dairy substitutes among people who suffer from milk allergies or lactose intolerance. The large number of people suffering from lactose intolerance significantly drives demand for dairy alternatives like soymilk rice milk, and coconut milk, which, in turn, fuels the growth of the global markets for alternative dairy products. According to data published by the Food Allergy Research and Education Organization, Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens and is the reason for the most severe food-related allergic reaction in the US.
The Asia Pacific is dominating the global dairy alternatives market and is expected to continue this trend throughout the forecast period. The presence of a large number of consumers who are health conscious and the wide distribution of products across the economies of Asia Pacific is making it easier for the regional market to expand. In the developed regions such as North America and Europe, the market is expected to expand significantly because of the growing demands for healthy food products and the significant rise in the number of vegans. Latin America and Middle East & Africa are expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to the changing lifestyle and food preferences.
On the basis of source, almond milk is widely preferred over soymilk due to allergies and other health issues that are associated with soy milk.
Based on the region, Asia Pacific is expected to lead the dairy alternatives market due to the presence of a significant consumer base as well as the large availability of dairy products across the various economies in the region.Competition Analysis: Regional Players Dominate the Domestic Markets
