Key Factors Shaping the Non-Dairy Creamer Market

  • Non-Dairy Creamer Gains Impetus from Fluctuating Milk Prices

    During the past two years, milk prices have been fluctuating, resulting in the uncertainty of dairy products prices, which is ultimately benefitting the non-dairy creamer manufacturers. The cost of production of the non-dairy creamer is somewhat stable, as the prices of the raw material remain constant. The consumer base, especially the lactose-intolerant and the vegan population, for non-dairy creamer is also increasing at a high rate.

    Lactose-intolerant consumers and those supporting veganism can use these non-dairy creamer for their beverages as an alternative to the traditional creamers. In the current scenario, non-dairy creamer is available in a wide variety of products including base as well as flavors, catering to specific demands and preferences.

    Growing popularity of vegan culture has led many manufacturers to offer several dairy alternatives such as plant-based non-dairy creamer with the same taste and appearance as that of the dairy creamers. Non-dairy creamer is made either with the vegetable oil or the plant-based milk such as soy, almond, and coconut. as the base, thereby aligning with the emerging trends.

  • Low Penetration in Developing Countries Has Led to Slow Growth

    Although rising disposable income in developing countries has offered significant market opportunities, awareness and penetration of the non-dairy creamer in these nations are comparatively less than that in the developed countries. As knowledge of lactose intolerance and adoption of veganism are still low in these countries, resulting into slow growth of the non-dairy creamer market.

    However, in the upcoming years, the developing countries such as China, India, and Mexico are expected to have substantial growth in the non-dairy creamer market. Use of non-dairy creamer in household is also less due to the lack of knowledge about the benefits and nutritional composition of the plant-based non-dairy creamer.

  • Coffee Culture – Expansion into Traditional Tea Markets

    The coffee culture is being adopted in APAC and Southeast Asian regions that are traditionally tea-drinking markets. This has increased the demand for instant coffee mixes that provide a gourmet coffee taste and appearance, even in a sachet. To that end, manufacturers are trying their best to provide a luxury out-of-the-home experience in instant coffee mixes that they manufacture with the help of non-dairy creamer.

    Instant-mix has become a popular product in the global market, and manufacturers are trying to enhance their products to increase the consumer base. Various processed food manufacturers also use non-dairy creamer as an ingredient in the final products, which are very popular in the Asian and MEA regions that have seen a rise in the disposable income in recent years.
