Global Dairy Products Market: Drivers and Trends
The absence of strict regulatory frameworks and increasing volume of funds from private and public sectors have been stimulating the growth of the global market for dairy products. The flourishing agriculture and animal husbandry industry in several regions of the world has been responsible for the growing production of milk products.
While cow milk is predominantly used in the production of numerous dairy products, buffalo milk is also being used in several countries such as India, Egypt, China, and the Philippines. The rising number of convenience stores, supermarkets, department stores, and hypermarkets across the world has also been promoting the growth of the market.
A plethora of products offered by numerous brands have been flooding the market. For instance, butter is available in a number of forms such as flavored butter, spreadable or whipped butter, butter blends, European-style sticks, American-style sticks, and non-dairy alternatives. New products are arriving in the market every day. For instance, in April 2017, Tillamook County Creamery Association launched an entirely new cheddar cheese product to its Farmstyle Cut line range of products.
Global Dairy Products Market: Regional Outlook
Asia Pacific commands the largest share in the global market for dairy products, driven by easy availability of raw materials, presence of animal husbandry as one of the key industries, and growing consumer base. North America might register moderate to sluggish growth rate during the oncoming years, thanks to the declining domestic demand for dairy products and the preference for dairy substitutes.
India, termed the ‘oyster’ of the global dairy industry, is perhaps the largest dairy product producer on a global scale. It is expected to hold a major share in the global market for dairy products. Dairy products such as buttermilk, butter, ghee, paneer (cottage cheese), dahi (yoghurt), lassi, and milk-based sweets are a part of the rich culinary tradition of India and are therefore consumed on a regular basis. China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Bangladesh, and Thailand are also displaying growing demand for dairy products.
Latin America is likely to register high growth rate. It houses Brazil, the world’s second-largest dairy herd after India. Argentina, Peru, Venezuela, Uruguay, and Mexico are also slated for considerable growth.
