Growth Factors

With the ongoing demand from customers for products to be reformulated without synthetics and artificial additives, the clean label trend is not showing any signs of slowing down. The usage of plant-based milk is anticipated to increase as the demand for “clean label” products keeps rising. Suppliers want to capitalize on this trend as millennials, and others of Generation Z look for sustainable, healthful plant-based replacements to traditional necessities like milk. Plant-based milk has become increasingly popular due to the sharp increase in demand for plant-based protein sources. Particularly among millennials, who comprise a sizeable portion of the consumer population, interest in veganism is rising. For competitors in the market for plant-based milk, this has presented growing potential.

The prevalence of lactose sensitivity has prompted people to choose alternatives that don’t contain dairy. Governments and health organizations have made a number of recommendations aimed at managing lactose intolerance effectively, one of which is to choose lactose-free milk and dairy products, hence fostering the market for plant-based milk.

Even while plant-based milk is becoming increasingly popular with health-conscious customers, the relatively lower protein level in these dairy substitutes is expected to impact the product’s overall consumption. Another difficulty for producers of plant-based milk is the time-consuming legal and regulatory inspection procedure, as industry associations forbid producers from using labelling that can mislead customers about the product’s nutritional content.
