Report Overview

The global goat milk products market size was estimated at USD 11.94 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.6% from 2022 to 2030. The market growth is driven by the growing lactose intolerant population and increasing health and wellness trends globally. Goat milk is a rich source of proteins, calories, and fats. It is thicker, creamier, easy to digest, and possesses a lesser risk of allergies as it has a slightly lower lactose content. Moreover, it is loaded with potassium, calcium, magnesium, vitamin A, and phosphorus. The outbreak of Coronavirus did not have a major impact on the market.

U.S. goat milk products market size, by type, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

The prices were observed slightly high in some countries in 2020 owing to the disruption in the supply chain. Few countries in the world have the majority of goat milk production, such as India, Turkey, Sudan, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and France. Due to transportation restrictions, a slight hindrance was observed in the supply from these countries. With the subsidies provided by the governments of various nations for goat farming and increasing awareness among people, especially in the time of COVID-19 when people became more aware of their health and wellness and wanted to boost their immunity, the demand for goat milk increased.

There is a variety of end-products that are made using goat milk, such as cheese, butter, ice cream, yogurt, etc. It is extensively used to make chevre, a special cheese made of goat milk, which is popular in Europe and North America. The demand for goat milk products was high during the period of lockdown. Various companies launched new products with long shelf-life in response to increasing demand. For instance, in 2020, Delamere Dairy launched a new whole milk powder made of goat’s milk in response to the rising consumer demand during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Type Insights

The liquid type segment accounted for the largest revenue share of more than 63.5% in 2021. Liquid milk is sold directly to customers as well as end-products manufacturers, such as cheesemakers. Goat milk cheese has many nutritional values and is low in fats and calories. It is available in different types and flavors, such as cheddar, chevre, feta, mold, and morel. Health benefits associated with goat milk are influencing people to opt for it. The consumption is high in countries, such as India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Turkey, and some European countries. Some of the popular goat species are Alpines, La Machas, Nigerian Dwarf, Oberhaslis, Saanens, Nubians, among others. The powdered milk segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period.

It is gaining popularity among infant formulae manufacturers. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), China is the largest importer of dairy products and imports powdered goat milk, especially for baby formulae manufacturing. Powdered goat milk is costlier than liquid form and can be stored for a longer period. The powdered form is rich in nutrients like vitamins, fats, calcium, and iron thus helping improve the count of blood platelets. It acts as the best substitute for proteins present in human milk. The demand for powdered form is also increasing owing to growing applications in the personal care sector. Manufacturers are incorporating it in various creams, soaps, and lotions. For instance, Urbaine Consumer India Pvt. Ltd. (The Wellness Shop) is offering facewash with goat milk extracts.

Distribution Channel Insights

 The B2C segment dominated the market and accounted for the highest revenue share of 61.7% in 2021. The B2C channel provides goat milk products directly to the customers. It is further divided into hypermarkets/supermarkets, specialty stores, convenience stores, online retail, among other sales channels. The majority of products are sold through dairies or specialty stores. Milk producers/farmers deliver their products to dairies, which are then further processed into packaged liquid or powdered milk. Some of the popular hypermarkets/supermarkets offering goat milk and products are Whole Foods Market, Walmart, Kroger, Costco, Tesco, Auchan, Argos, Star Market, Wegmans, and Carrefour.

Ltd., Courtyard Farms, Farm Fresh, Nutragoat, Amazon, Flipkart, Wellversed, Cora Health & Wellness, and Vistara Farms Pvt. Ltd. The B2B segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Products are sold to the end-product manufacturers via the B2B channel. The manufacturers then make different products, such as butter, cheese, flavored milk, yogurt, etc. The segment growth can be attributed to the increasing demand in the chevre and baby formulae applications as goat milk is easy to digest and contains an adequate amount of nutrients.

India ranks first in its production and consumption in the world with around 25% of the global output. According to the NCBI, around 60% of the global goats are found in the Asia Pacific.
