The dairy alternatives market is estimated at USD 27.0 billion in 2023 and is projected to reach USD 43.6 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 10.1% from 2023 to 2028.

Plant-based beverages have emerged as the favored substitutes for dairy products, experiencing a surge in popularity as people increasingly opt for dairy-free diets.

Notably, plain and unsweetened versions of these dairy alternatives are particularly prevalent among consumers seeking low-calorie and low-fat options.
