The dairy alternatives market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 11.7% from 2017, to reach USD 14.36 Billion by 2022. The growth of this market can be attributed to the inclination of consumers toward a vegan diet, growing instances of lactose intolerance among the population, and the growing demand for various fortified dairy food & beverage applications.

The soy milk segment, on the basis of type, accounted for the largest market share in 2016. The dominance of this segment is mainly driven by the surplus soy milk varieties in terms of flavors, blends, fat content, and formulations offered by leading dairy alternative manufacturers. It is also coupled with the increasing awareness about the nutritional benefits of soy-based products, and easy availability of convenient & healthy dairy-free soy milk. The almond milk segment, on the basis of type, accounted for the second-largest share in 2016 owing to its health benefits as well as easy availability of raw materials. The food application of the dairy alternatives market holds the largest market share due to the usage of plant-based ingredients in applications such as cheese, creamer, yogurt, pudding, and ice cream.

The Asia-Pacific region accounted for the largest share in 2016 due to the rising consumer demand for plant-based food along with the growing prevalence of lactose intolerance. The food & beverage market in the Asia-Pacific region is currently undergoing a transformation in response to rapid urbanization, diet diversification, and the liberalization of foreign direct investment in the food sector. North America is projected to be the fastest-growing region from 2017 to 2022 due to its large almond milk market, strong inclination toward a vegan diet, and growing number of manufacturers in the region.

Dairy Alternatives Market

Though most dairy alternatives are similar to dairy milk in terms of texture and taste, the price of dairy milk is relatively lower than that of its alternatives. The dairy industry in most countries operates in an organized structure and has a lower rate of turnover tax, which reduces the price of the product. On the other hand, the price of dairy alternatives depends on the supply of raw materials. Changes in climatic conditions have resulted in the shortage of raw materials, which in turn, has increased their prices. For instance, the price of raw materials is increasing due to the poor harvesting of crops in Asian countries such as India and Pakistan. Such fluctuations are posing challenges to the dairy alternatives market. Further, clinical trials and safety testing require substantial investments. Significant investments in R&D activities, laboratories, and research equipment, and hiring trained professionals also pose as a barrier for this market.

The market is dominated by key players such as Whitewave Foods (U.S.), The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. (U.S.), Blue Diamond Growers (U.S.), and SunOpta Inc. (Canada). Other players include Freedom Foods (Australia), Eden Foods (U.S.), Nutriops SL. (Spain), Earth's Own Food Company Inc. (Canada), Triballat Noyal (France), Valsoia S.p.A (Italy), and Dφhler GmbH (Germany). The key players have adopted strategic developments such as new product launches, acquisitions, joint ventures, expansions, partnerships, and agreements to explore the market in new regions.
