Market Outlook

The LATAM dairy market is being driven by the expansion of the distribution channels for dairy products supported by the rising numbers of supermarkets and hypermarkets in the region. The market in LATAM is also buoyed by the rising demand for dairy globally, especially from the emerging economies, with global dairy demand projected to see an annual increase of 2.5% till 2020.

The dairy market in LATAM is witnessing a growing milk production. In 2018, South America milk production rose by a slight 1.1% from 2017, to reach 64 million tonnes. The milk production is expected to continue growing in countries like Argentina, Colombia, Chile and Uruguay. However, the milk output in Brazil, a major player in the region, is expected to decline due to truckers’ strike in May which disrupted feed delivery and milk collection. In 2018, the milk output in Brazil was 34.9 million tonnes, a drop of 1.1% from 2017. This decline in Brazil might affect the dairy market in the region.

Market Analysis

The LATAM dairy market is driven by the rapidly growing urbanisation and the rise of the emerging markets. With an increasing health consciousness among the consumers, there has been a growing demand for dairy nutrition, which are low in calorie and are lactose-free. The increasingly busy schedules of the consumers are also leading to a rising demand for convenient and on-the-go products like yoghurt. With the expansion of dairy distribution channels like convenience stores and supermarkets, the markets for packaged milk and single serve drinking yoghurt bottles are expected to grow in the coming years in the region.

Cheese is one of the leading products in the LATAM region along with milk and yoghurt. The cheese trade in South America saw a growth of 5.7% in 2018, as compared to the previous year. The export of dairy products from Uruguay and Argentina is expected to expand in the coming years. Despite the drought conditions experienced by Argentina in early 2018, the country witnessed a 7% growth in its dairy exports from 2017 to reach 10.8 million tons in 2018. The reducing cow herd size since 2012 in the country is being offset by the higher milk yields per cow.

Brazil is a leading market in the region and any changes in the market affects the LATAM dairy market as a whole. In Brazil, there has been a rising demand for traditional dairy products like requeijão cheese, driving the demand for processed cheese. Milk is a major product consumed in the region as a daily staple food across income groups. However, due to the feed supply shortage caused by the truckers’ s strike, milk yields in the country will take time to recover. The growth of the cheese market in the country will also be affected due to the reduced milk output.

Price Analysis

In 2017, the average price of dairy export rose by 31% as compared to 2016. This was due to the rise in export prices between May to September 2017 owing to a tightened supply from major producing countries in Europe and South America along with an increase in the demand for dairy products in Asia. The dairy prices, however, started to decrease in the last quarter of 2017 with an increase in supplies from leading producing nations.
