Dairy Alternatives Market Worth $41.06 Billion By 2025 | CAGR: 16.7%

January 2019 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

The global dairy alternatives market size is expected to reach USD 41.06 billion by 2025 at a 16.7% CAGR during the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Increasing occurrence of milk allergies among consumers is likely to be a key factor driving the market.

Increasing popularity of almond milk, owing to high protein, fiber, lipids, and energy content, is projected to drive its demand. Better taste and texture offered by almond milk as opposed to its counterparts is likely to offer a competitive advantage for the product over the forecast period. Furthermore, almond milk helps regulate blood pressure and offers benefits to heart, kidney, and skin, which is likely to increase its popularity over the coming years.

The most common non-dairy product consumed in the market is soy milk, which was also the largest product segment in 2017, accounting for over 63.0% of the total market. Soy milk contains isoflavones, which reduce the risk of breast cancer and heart diseases, and is likely to gain popularity, especially among women and elderly consumers.

Going forth, growing demand for plain unsweetened dairy alternatives for food and beverage applications is likely to have a positive impact on industry growth over the projected period.
