COVID-19 Impact:

Changing Consumer Demands to Elevate Market amid COVID-19
The novel coronavirus is wreaking havoc on the global ice cream market. Producers are increasingly concerned about logistical constraints and labor shortages. Many manufacturers, especially small and medium-sized businesses, have had to reduce or stop production (SME). The condition has changed recently, with the number of new confirmed cases decreasing.

The demand will rise in the coming summer season as the epidemic is well contained, and transportation restrictions have been relaxed in recent months. Some businesses are focusing on adopting and making the most of changing consumer conditions and reducing commodity demand as a result of the COVID-19.

For instance, India's Amul Dairy promotes ancient methods of protecting immune systems through Ayurveda and a balanced lifestyle. The brand has announced the release of a new Haldi ice cream made with the goodness of Haldi (turmeric), pepper, and honey and the richness of dates, almonds, and cashews.

Driving Factor:

Launch of Ben & Jerry's New Ice Cream to Incite Development

Traditional ice cream is nutrient-dense, even though it has no health benefits. As a result, market participants' growing interest in fortification and functional ingredients can encourage customers to choose the product as a healthier snack choice. Functional foods have advantages over and above basic nutrition, and they can help reduce or eliminate the risk of certain diseases. The infusion of functional ingredients by companies will influence the healthy growth of the ice cream market share.

Moreover, the easy availability of the product coupled with the rising expenditure on fast foods is expected to drive the market growth. The increased spending by major players on research and development of new goods is expected to significantly affect business growth. For example, the Unilever Group's Ben & Jerry's brand confirmed the launch of new ice cream in May 2020. The food made of cookies, fudge, and potato chips was created in collaboration with Netflix's baking show “Nailed It”.

Regional Insights:

Rising number of Fast-food Chains to Boost Market in North America

The Asia Pacific market has the largest share and is expected to expand at a 4.28 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the forecast period. Growing product acceptance, fierce competition, and a vast customer base have driven operators to seek strategic advantages through product offers and service delivery technologies. Major companies are working hard to expand their footprints in the Asian market by acquiring small local companies.

In September 2018, for example, the Unilever group agreed to buy Adityaa milk and an ice cream company in India. North America is expected to have the second-largest market share. The growing number of fast-food chains in the area and the widespread use of natural ingredients in the manufacture of frozen dairy products are pushing up demand for the commodity. Premium products have become a popular choice among health-conscious Americans due to high-quality ingredients and a lesser amount of aeration compared to regular ones.

Competitive Landscape:

Introduction of Novel Products by Prominent Companies to Strengthen Market

Companies are spending heavily on digitalization in order to expand their customer base. To raise awareness of their brand and brands, industry leaders are relying on digital platforms. Major corporations are preparing to forego conventional marketing spending in favor of advertising on social media sites such as Instagram and Facebook.

Furthermore, influencer marketing has proven to be a successful strategy. For portfolio broadening and product marketing, companies like Nestle S.A., Unilever Group, and General Mills are focusing on new product releases and joint partnerships with related stakeholders. Unilever Group, for example, announced the introduction of the Double Red Velvet version under the Magnum brand in January 2021.
