The global dairy alternative industry is being driven by the growing awareness among the consumers about the availability of lactose-free food in the market. Consumers are seeking out these alternative products over real milk products mainly due to concerns about health like the growing cases of lactose intolerance and allergies or sensitivity to milk products. The rising trend of vegan diets is also aiding the industry growth. The market is finding further impetus from consumers who are increasingly seeking natural and plant-based products without artificial flavours or colours.
The dairy alternative market is being driven by the younger generation with higher disposable incomes who are contributing to the rising demand for dairy alternatives, as they deem them more sustainable than other milk sources. With consumers checking the nutritional information of foods and beverages more frequently, the market for alternative dairy products will be aided by the high nutritional content of the items. They are rich in nutrients like omega-3, calcium, protein, and vitamin D while containing lower fat and cholesterol than real milk products.
The rising demand for alternatives to milk products in regions where the supply of cow’s milk is insufficient to meet the local demand is also aiding the industry growth. The market is also being driven by dairy farmers who are switching to plant-based milk production due to the slower rate of growth of the traditional dairy market as compared to the alternative segment. In the forecast period, the industry will also be aided by the implementation of various government policies seeking to assist the growth of the agricultural sector. These policies will lead to an increase in the availability of raw materials for plant-based alternatives, and will consequently lead to a lowering of their prices.
