Dairy Flavors Market by Nature, Form, Flavor Type, Application & Region | Forecast 2023 to 2033

Global Dairy Flavors Market Outlook (2023 to 2033)

According to Future Market Insights, the global dairy flavors market is poised to accumulate a market value of US$ 20 billion by the end of 2023, and will eventually reach US$ 48 billion in 2033, accelerating at a CAGR of 9.1%. As consumer food preferences continuously evolve, food & beverage manufacturers are looking for avenues wherein they can experiment with flavor combinations, thus widening the popularity of dairy-based flavors.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic saw a return to more nostalgic and traditional flavors, consumers are becoming increasingly adventurous with their cooking and eating habits. Manufacturers are therefore looking to introduce bolder and more exciting tastes that appeal to consumers. Innovative, nutritious berry blends and flavors such as cranberry, blueberry, or even honeyberry, are making their way into dairy product offerings, such as yogurt.

Classic mood-inspiring flavors such as chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, dessert & bakery-inspired flavors are likely to be in high demand while formulating dairy flavored foods. This is why a plethora of manufacturers are expected to break even in the forthcoming decade. Strategies such as capacity expansion, collaborations with universities, government entities, and other manufacturers, as well as introducing new and innovative products are some core strategies followed by the market players.

In October 2022, International Flavors & Fragrances Inc. (IFF) and Florida Polytechnic University laid the foundation of the new Citrus Innovation Center, situated on the University campus in Lakeland. The 30,000-square-foot facility is expected to support citrus research and development and will include sensory and experience venues, research labs, processing, analytical departments, a fully equipped citrus garden, and amenities for hosting customers and partners.

Synergy Flavors Inc., a prominent supplier of flavors, extracts, and essences for the global food and beverage industry offers Dairy by Nature, a portfolio of custom taste solutions. Introduced in 2019, the portfolio combines Synergy’s natural flavor extraction and creation expertise with the proprietary dairy technology of its parent company, Carbery. Dairy by Nature is a natural taste solution, developed to address the formulation needs of dairy-based as well as plant-based applications trending with today’s consumers.

Stakeholders in the dairy flavors industry are likely to accrue maximum benefits from the clean-label portfolio. With consumers increasingly demanding food and beverage products with transparent and ethical origins, manufacturers are incorporating sustainable practices at every point in the supply chain. Many consumers are actively seeking ways to make better choices, with 30% of consumers willing to pay a premium price for sustainably sourced produce. When it comes to clean-label and sustainable dairy products, Edlong is at the forefront.

In 2021, Edlong announced the extension of its partnership with Future Food-Tech as a Gold Partner. The extension came amid renewed consciousness about dietary patterns in the post-pandemic era, with an unprecedented demand for more efficient, nutritious and sustainable solutions. Edlong is a pioneer in forging the future of plant-based dairy flavors and innovations. Through a summit held in March 2021, the company re-emphasized the importance of switching over to a plant-based diet, and the benefits it would accrue to the environment as a whole.

Dairy manufacturers can leverage the natural and nutrient-rich sweetness of high-quality fruit and vegetable ingredients such as berries or tomatoes to differentiate their plant-based innovations. For example, Japanese company Morinaga Oishii has created a tomato-flavored yogurt designed to provide an unusual flavor experience, especially for tomato consumers. At the same time, French supermarket Carrefour introduced a plant-based coconut yogurt that uses strawberries as a natural and tasty sweetener.
