March 22, 2024 | Food & Beverages

The global dairy alternatives market size is estimated to grow strongly by reaching USD 91.51 billion by 2032. Fortune Business Insights™ in its report titled “Dairy Alternatives Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Source (Soy, Almond, Coconut, Rice, Oats, and Others), By Product Type (Non-dairy Milk, Butter, Cheeses, Yogurts, Ice Cream, and Others), By Distribution Channel (Supermarkets/Hypermarkets, Convenience Stores, Online Retail, and Others), and Regional Forecasts, 2024-2032” observes that the market size in 2023 stood at USD 28.55 billion and is expected to reach 32.38 billion in 2024. The market is expected to witness a strong CAGR of 13.81% during 2024-2032. The recent surge in demand for non-dairy products or dairy alternatives has led to a rise in the plant-based milk substitutes. Vegan milk is a suspension of dissolved and disintegrated plant extracts in water as a base. Homogenization and thermal treatments are the two processing techniques utilized to improve the suspension and stability of such plant-derived products. Evolution and improvisation in dietary lifestyles, such as veganism and flexitarianism, fuel the demand for plant milk and associated products.

Halted Manufacturing Units Amid Pandemic Hindered Market Growth

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic encouraged people to consume plant-based and healthy food products to improve their immune systems. The low availability of labor and disrupted manufacturing processes greatly impacted the demand and sales of these dairy alternatives. Also, the dairy alternatives market growth was hampered during the initial lockdown phase due to lack of supplies and halted production activities. Furthermore, supply chains were disrupted due to stringent restrictions on import/export policies imposed by governments. However, the leading market players plan to expand their production post-pandemic.

High Consumption of Plant-Based Products to Augment Market Growth  

The market is expected to grow significantly in the coming years due to increasing concerns for processed dairy products and the growing lactose-intolerant population. Also, the rising consumption of vegan food and increasing veganism are expected to bolster the market during the forecast period. Furthermore, product innovation strategies implemented by the leading market players are expected to fuel market growth.
