Properties and Applications

Dairy can be broadly defined to include drinking milk as well as other milk products like butter and margarine, cheese, and yoghurt, among others. Dairy products can be divided into drinking milk products, butter, cheeses, yoghurt and others. Currently, liquid milk is the highest consumed dairy product in Asia Pacific. However, the region is fast catching up to new dairy product concepts such as sweetened or flavoured milk.

Dairy products find extensive application in the food and beverages sector. The yoghurt market in Asia Pacific is seeing a growth with rising concerns about health and fitness. Dairy protein is also seeing increasing demand due to its health and nutritional benefits.

Market Analysis

The growing disposable income of the consumers is one of the major drivers of the Asia Pacific dairy market. Rapid urbanisation and a growing awareness of health and wellness have also aided the market growth. Cheese is proving to be a popular product in the continent due to the rising income of the consumers. Other traditional products such as yoghurt, curd and cottage cheese are widely consumed, especially in the sub-continent, and are poised to remain popular for the coming years.

Currently, Asia Pacific holds the highest demand for dairy products in the world market. The consumption of dairy products has doubled in the last 30 years due to a rapidly growing population and a rising middle class.
