Sluggish Growth of Dairy Industry Creates Opportunity for Expansion

The demand for dairy products is increasing at a sluggish pace in North America and Europe. As per statistics released by the Canadian Dairy Information Centre, the per capita fluid milk consumption has slumped from 79.8 litres in 2008 to 65.2 litres in 2017 in the US. Similar decline is witnessed in Mexico and Canada, although the rate of decline in Germany, Italy, France, and other European countries is not as drastic. Plant-based dairy alternative covers a gamut of products such as whipping cream, non-dairy toppings, yoghurt, and ice-cream among others. Although soy, almond, and coconut milk have remained crowd favorites, oat drinks have recently become mainstream. Oat drinks may account for a lesser share in the plant-based diary sector, but their entry is facilitated by strategies by leading companies in the beverages industry. In the coming years, the market is expected to pick pace and soon consumers will have a versatile option to choose from.

“Oat drinks are used in creamy soups, coffees, smoothies, and baked goods. The likelihood of consumers to spend on dairy-free products has considerably increased, impelling use of oat drinks across diverse application in the food and beverages sector,” said a leading FMI analyst
