What is the Future Outlook for Non-dairy Creamer Market in Comparison to Historical Pattern of Growth?

Non-dairy creamer can be either manufactured from plant based milk such as almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk, and others or from hydrogenation of the vegetable oil. Of these, non-dairy creamer manufactured from the hydrogenation process of vegetable oil can be harmful to human health because of the amount of trans-fat present in these creamers. But the non-dairy creamer which are manufactured from the plant based milk such as almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk, and others does not have trans-fat instead they have better nutritional value. Thus it is mostly preferred by health conscious and vegan population.

Due to increasing health related concerns, consumers are looking for food products with clean labelling. Thus, non-dairy creamer manufacturers are providing certain claims, certifications, and labelling in order to build positive image in the minds of consumers. Some of the claims offered by the manufacturers are All-natural, Organic, Non-GMO, No preservatives, No additives, No artificial ingredients and many more.

Why are Consumers Shifting from Dairy Based Creamer to Non-Dairy Creamer?

?In past few years the demand for non-dairy creamer has increased significantly. There are several reasons behind the changing consumer’s preference from dairy creamer to non-dairy creamer. One of the main reasons is the increasing number of consumers facing health issues such as lactose intolerance. This has been encouraging them to opt for the non-dairy products such as non-dairy creamer.

Moreover, non-dairy creamer manufacturers are launching innovative variations in terms of base, type, and flavour. This is resulting in a variety of product offerings for consumers which is affecting their buying behavior. Thus consumers are shifting towards non-dairy creamer.

How is Coffee Culture Enabling Non-dairy Creamer Sales?

?In the East and South Asia countries, which are historically tea drinking regions, the coffee culture is widely adopted. The growing acceptance of coffee culture is driving the market for instant coffee mixes that can have the flavour and look of a gourmet coffee. Therefore, understanding the demand for instant coffee mixes, the manufacturers are doing their utmost to provide an out of the home luxury experience of instant coffee blends.

Instant mix is gaining traction as the manufacturers are doing modifications in their products in order to increase the consumer base. For instance, some of them are including non-dairy ingredients to gain traction from a certain section of consumers. Besides this, non-dairy creamer is increasingly popular among coffee-drinking generation, which is why several leading coffee shop franchisees are including non-dairy creamers in their menu.

How is Increasing Disposable Income Aiding Growth of Non-Dairy Creamer Market?

Some of the emerging countries such as China and India have emerged as key markets for non-dairy creamer. Besides the increasing focus on health and wellness in these countries, high disposable income of consumers is favoring growth of the overall market. Change in lifestyle, also influenced by improving spending power will remain a key determinant of growth. This automatically led to the growth in the consumption of processed food which resulted in growth in the consumption of non-dairy creamer.

How are Fluctuating Prices of Dairy Milk Are Affecting the Demand for Non-Dairy Creamer?

From the past few years the prices of dairy milk have been fluctuating, thus the prices of dairy based products are also fluctuating which is resulting in the reduction of value of dairy products. While on the other hand, the prices of non-dairy products is somewhat stable. Thus the fluctuating prices of dairy milk is positively affecting the demand for non-dairy milk and its products. Non-dairy creamer has therefore emerged as a preferred alternative to milk, derived from plant-based sources.

How Is Veganism and Flexitarian Diet Trend Aiding Non-Dairy Creamer Sales?

The article titled Flexitarianism on the rise published in 2020 highlighted how flexitarian diet is growing and which trends are provoking consumers to opt for flexitarian diet. In past few years, the trend of veganism has made a solid space among the consumers. The popularity of veganism has doubled since last 5 years, says google trends.

Most of the consumers don’t see veganism as a dietary restriction, in fact they see it as a healthy lifestyle choice. There is increasing preference for food products containing ingredients derived from plant based sources. Non-dairy creamer can be either made from vegetable oil or from the plant based milk such as almond milk, coconut milk and other. Thus with growing vegan population the demand for non-dairy creamer is also expected to show growth.

Moreover, with growing awareness about benefits of plant based products consumers mostly from the millennial generation are opting for flexitarian diet practices, which is ultimately fuelling the demand for plant based product, resulting growth of non-dairy creamer sales.
