North America Dairy Alternatives Market Outlook, Drivers and Challenges
The Dairy Alternatives market in North America is expected to witness strong growth over the next five years, primarily driven by the rising consumers’ environmental concerns which are positively influencing an increase in the adoption of dairy alternatives in North America. They typically use less land, water to produce vegan milks, and emit lower carbon emissions which helps in mitigating the effects of global warming and improve the air quality. As per available data, livestock accounts for nearly 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions, with the dairy industry holding the largest share.
The increasing popularity of lactose-free products, including milk among individuals is anticipated to boost the dairy alternatives market growth in the forthcoming years. In addition, the rising health awareness among consumers, notably those who are unable to digest lactose, has resulted in an increase in the consumption of lactose-free products as they typically help in the absorption of calcium which benefits in building and repairing muscle tissue/cells. For instance, in the U.S as per available data, volume of value-added milks, including lactose-free, non-dairy milk, and organic milk increased ~15% in 2021 compared to the prior year, while traditional milk volumes declined by ~7%.
The lack of consumer awareness regarding dairy-free products is one of the major challenges to the growth of the dairy alternatives market. The lack of nutritional awareness is likely to be a concern for those who eat a healthy balanced diet and do not depend solely on milk as an important protein source. The continued purchase of dairy products by consumers indicates that the portfolio of dairy alternatives has yet to capture the potential customer base.
