The adoption of vegan diets across the globe is driving the growth of the global nut-milk market. The increasing number of health-conscious consumers, coupled with the rising demand for plant-based products, is fuelling the demand for nut milk. The aging population has growing concerns related to health and weight management, while consumers are leaning toward the belief that plant-based products are healthier than animal-based products for personal health as well as the sustainability associated with it. Dairy-alternatives and plant-based products are also perceived to be more sustainable and better for the environment than animal products such as cow milk.

The increasing prevalence of lactose allergies and lactose-intolerance among people is expected to boost the nut milk market. Though nut milk lacks dairy proteins, it has other nutritional benefits such as low calories, high amounts of calcium, magnesium, and fatty acids. The consumer demand for nutritious products is fuelling the research and development activities in the industry. For example, in September 2019, Z Natural Foods launched new dairy-free cashew milk powder, which contains inulin that acts as prebiotic fiber and prevents the powder from forming clumps.  

Key Market Driver -

Rising Trend of Veganism across the Globe

Key Market Restraint -

High Cost of Nut Milk Production

The demand for nut-based milk is continuously increasing across the globe due to the rising trend of veganism. Increasing animal welfare concerns among consumers are responsible for the decline in demand for animal milk and the rise in demand for plant-based milk. The promotion of vegan diets by celebrities is also driving the demand for nut milk, which is fuelling the growth of the market. The manufacturers are strengthening their business by tapping consumers in the developed markets due to the higher penetration of the vegan trend in these regions. The manufacturers are also targeting developing markets amidst growing awareness of plant-based dietary benefits. For instance, in February 2019, Blue Diamond Growers partnered with dairy giant Grupo Lala for the distribution of almond milk in Mexico, to target premium minded consumers.

The high cost of processing technologies such as cold press technology, freeze-drying, and spray drying for the production of liquid and powdered nut milk is expected to hamper the growth of the global nut milk market. The high cost of packaging of nut milk is also hindering its growth.

The beverage giants are introducing almond milk-based beverages to meet the growing demand. For instance, in April 2019, Starbucks India launched almond milk as an innovative addition in the portfolio of non-dairy beverages.

The powder form of nut milk is expected to witness the strong growth owing to its convenient storage and longer shelf life as compared to the liquid milk. Milk powders are easy to transport, carry, and utilized in a range of ready-to-consume food and beverages. The manufacturers are focused on developing nut milk powders to meet the growing demand. For instance, in June 2019, Brazilian start-up Benni Alimentos launched soluble cashew nut milk powder that has a two-year shelf life. Among the distribution channels, hypermarkets and supermarkets are expected to witness substantial growth in sales of nut milk because of the better presentation, availability of wide variety on the retail shelves, and easy accessibility to consumers in such stores.
