US Dairy Market Aided by 1.1% Increase in Milk Production in 2018

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘US Dairy Market Report and Forecast 2019-2024’, the growth of the US dairy market was aided by the 1.1% increase in the production of milk in 2018, as compared to 2017. The hike in the US milk production added to the 1.3% growth in the North America milk output from 2017 to 2018.

The US dairy market was driven by the increasing exports of dairy products. The U.S. dairy exports of dairy products like milk powders, butterfat, cheese, whey and lactose increased by 20% in the Q1 of 2018 as compared to 2017 to reach 1.14 million tons. The robust growth in the export of US dairy products was a result of the increasing demand for major US export products like skim milk powder, cheese, lactose, and whey. Thus, decreasing domestic sales of dairy were balanced by the demand from the overseas market. The increase in SMP stock led to an increase in its export to regions like Southeast Asia, China, and Mexico.
The renegotiated trade agreement called USMCA, which will be replacing NAFTA, between the US, Canada and Mexico will provide further impetus for the expansion of trade in the US. Under the new trade deal, US will be allowed 3.6% tariff-free access to the Canadian dairy market, leading to an increase in the export of dairy products like cheese, milk, and others.
