Market Dynamics


Demand for sugar free dairy alternatives is growing as consumers seek to avoid the extra calories caused by added sugar. Consumers are also choosing dairy alternatives as a means of reducing their calorie intake, as dairy products often contain a high amount of calories. Consumers aiming at weight loss are increasingly replacing cow or buffalo milk with soy or almond milk. This is expected to contribute to the growth of the market as fitness savvy consumers increase globally.

Concerns about hormones, pesticides and antibiotics are driving demand for the product. Residues of the above substances will be harmful to consumption, especially by pregnant women. The presence of hormones in dairy products consumed by humans causes and initiates endometrial, prostate and breast cancers. Dairy alternatives have presented themselves as a safe alternative to dairy products because they are naturally derived and extracted in a natural way. The outstanding benefits brought by milk substitutes are expected to further accelerate the growth of the market during the forecast period.


The dairy alternatives market mainly restrict the market growth in the developing economies due to the high costs related to the plant based dairy products. Consumers in developing countries such as India, China, Australia, Bangladesh, Brazil, and Mexico cannot afford the high costs of dairy alternatives and hence the consumer base for these products is very limited in such countries. Moreover as the cost related to sourcing raw materials is high for plant based products, it directly affects the final costing of the product which makes it costlier and unaffordable for majority of the consumers. With majority of the consumers falling in middle and lower income group, high costs of the dairy products made from plant based raw materials acts as a major restraint for the growth of the market in developing countries.


Manufacturers of milk substitutes invest heavily in product innovation to attract more consumers. The product innovation strategy gives a competitive edge to the active players in the market, increasing their profits. Manufacturers of dairy alternatives are offering certified organic products that are GMO-free, gluten-free, label-free, and hypoallergenic to meet new customer needs.

Furthermore, as health-conscious consumers, they prefer low-calorie and low-fat products. As a result, plant-based dairy product manufacturers offer sugar-free and low-sugar products. For example, in February 2021, Hasla Foods launched a 24-oz (ounce) family-friendly oat yogurt without sugar. The product contains only 90 calories per serving and contains no added sugar. In June 2021, the same company expanded its retail reach by offering its products at Vitamin Cottage's 160 National grocers in the U.S. Such strategies are expected to provide lucrative opportunities in the dairy substitutes market during the forecast period.

Major challenge faced by the industry in the developing regions such as South America, Asia Pacific, and Middle East is the lack of awareness about the products in the majority of the population groups. Consumers in these developing regions are not much aware about the availability of the plant based products in nearby stores and hence they do not buy these items. Moreover, with lack of knowledge and awareness majority of the consumers are not very confident about the results of these products. Hence lack of awareness about the products and lack of knowledge pose major challenge for the growth of dairy alternatives market.
