According to a study conducted by ResearchAndMarkets, the global dairy market is growing at a CAGR of 5.3% and will achieve USD 593 billion growth by 2023. The Industry shows no signs of slowing down and has recorded 1.4% growth during the past 5 years. However, the dairy industry is not offering the same opportunities to all product categories. It favors some over the others. 

 

For instance, the US market witnessed a steady decline in categories such as cheese, milk, and yogurt, while there had been tremendous growth in certain other kinds like Icelandic yogurt and lactose-reduced milk. The shift is due to more and more consumers choosing healthy and nutrient-rich products over the traditional high-fat ones. It looks like the only way to claim your share of the market is by filling the shelves with goodies the consumers are looking for.
