The global A2 milk market attained a value of USD 6.7 billion in 2019. The market is expected to grow at a robust rate in the forecast period of 2020-2025, growing at a CAGR of 22%. The industry is expected to attain an estimated value of USD 22 billion by 2025.
The Asia Pacific is the leading regional market for A2 milk. Within the region, Australia and China are emerging as some of the significant markets. The industry in these two regions is being driven by the sustained interested and expansion of key players in the industry like the A2 Milk Company Limited. The market is also supported by the strong brand awareness among the consumers and the growing awareness of the product’s various nutritional benefits. The growth of the premium milk segment in these countries is also expected to aid the growth of the industry. The infant formula segment is, particularly, expected to grow in these two countries in the coming years. China is one of the most significant markets for baby formula with leading players in the baby formula industry like Nestle, Danone, and Reckitt Benckiser expanding their infant formula business in the country. Post- the 2008 infant formula scandal, A2 milk’s claims of being healthier and more nutritional is expected to drive the industry growth in the infant formula segment. The relaxation of China’s one-child policy in 2013 has provided a further boost for the segment growth. However, in the coming years the growth of the segment might be hindered by the imposition of stricter regulations regarding infant formula in the country.
North America and Europe are some of the other emerging markets for the product. The industry in these regions are being aided by the growing awareness of the health benefits of A2 milk. The expansion of the various retail channels of the product in these regions like supermarkets and hypermarkets along with local grocery stores is expected to boost the industry growth in North America and Europe. As people in these regions are increasingly seeking out value-added or organic milk, A2 milk is witnessing an increasing demand. The growth of retail stores catering in natural products is also providing further impetus for the industry growth as these stores also stock A2 milk products. The United States and the United Kingdom are some the significant markets for the product within the North America and Europe regions, respectively.
