Apart from increasing health consciousness among the consumers, the advertisements and brand personification also play an important role in fueling the market growth.

However, the market for a packaged milkshake is expected to face challenges due to frequent fluctuation in the raw material prices. The raw material price varies from region to region, thus it brings a challenge to the manufacturers to maintain the profit margins. For instance, in the U.S., the milk farmers are finding it difficult to survive as they are squeezed out of a changing milk market. This can lead to a decrease in milk production, thus increasing the price.

The local vendors in countries such as India can also restrain the packaged milkshakes market growth soon as the market also consists of consumer groups who prefer to have milkshakes from local vendors due to availability of customization rather than the packaged one. Although, huge demand for the product from consumers of regions such as Europe and Asia is expected to negate the restraining factors in the long term, thus fueling the market growth in the forecast period.
