The rise of dairy alternative plant milks

August 14, 2023

The global dairy alternative plant milk market is witnessing a significant surge, with projections indicating a growth of €9,80m at a CAGR of 7.95% from 2022 to 2027.

This growth is attributed to a rising awareness of the dietary and environmental impacts of traditional dairy products. Consumers are increasingly leaning towards sustainable and healthier options, with plant-based milk offering lower fat and cholesterol content. The versatility of these beverages and their ability to cater to various dietary needs further propels their demand in the market.

Challenges and opportunities in emerging markets

Emerging markets present a plethora of opportunities for the dairy alternative plant milk beverages sector. The increasing preference for healthier and sustainable dietary options, collaborations with local farmers, unique flavours, and partnerships with local retailers are driving the market’s expansion. However, the market faces challenges, notably allergies to plant-based options. Allergic reactions, especially to substitutes like soy, can deter potential consumers, posing a significant challenge to the global dairy-free sector. Despite these hurdles, the overall outlook remains positive, with companies continuously innovating to address these concerns.

Competitive landscape and future outlook

As consumer preferences shift towards healthier, sustainable, and ethically conscious dietary choices, the market is set for substantial growth. Collaborations with local producers, unique product offerings, and strategic partnerships are further fueling this expansion. The trend towards plant-based alternatives is gaining momentum, positioning the dairy alternative plant milk beverages market to meet the evolving needs of modern consumers.
