The dairy alternatives market consists of the sale of alternative dairy products and related services. Dairy alternatives are foods and beverages used as substitutes for dairy products. These products are extracted from plants such as cereals (rice, oats), legumes (soya), seeds (hemp, flax), nuts (peanuts, almonds) and other cereals (teff, quinoa). Dairy milk substitutes include soy milk, rice milk, oat milk, coconut milk, and flaxseed milk, cheese substitutes include soft cheese and hard cheese , butter substitutes such as nut butter, coconut butter, vegetable oil blends and cultured vegan butter.

The main product types are non-dairy milk, butter, cheese, yogurt, ice cream and other product types. Butter is a yellow to white solid emulsion of fat globules, water and inorganic salts and is produced by churning cream from cow’s milk. The various sources of dairy alternatives are almond, soy, oat, hemp, coconut, rice and other types of products. Dairy alternatives are distributed in supermarkets, health food stores, pharmacies, convenience stores, online stores and other types of products.

Rising cases of lactose intolerance and milk allergies are expected to contribute to the growth of the dairy alternatives market. Lactose intolerance or congenital lactase deficiency is a condition in which the small intestine is unable to manufacture the enzyme lactase to break down or digest lactose, moving undigested lactose to the large intestine, causing symptoms such as diarrhea, gas and bloating. According to the Cleveland Clinic, more than 30 million people in America are lactose intolerant. This scenario is likely to generate higher demand for dairy alternatives, which, in turn, is expected to increase the dairy alternatives market revenue during the forecast period.

Lack of consumer awareness about the nutritional benefits of dairy alternatives is expected to hamper the market growth. Many dairy consumers believe that dairy alternatives have a lower nutritional content than cow’s milk and other dairy products. According Cargill study, about 90% of US households consume dairy products as part of their daily diet, while only 4% of the population consumes only non-dairy products. Hence, the lack of popular awareness about the nutritional benefits of dairy alternatives is restraining the growth of the market over the next few years.

New product innovation is the trend in the dairy alternatives market. In December 2019, Nestlé’s popular health drink brand Nesquik, has announced the launch of GoodNes, its first plant-based health drink made with a blend of pea protein and oat milk. According to Nestlé, its new dairy alternative health drinks match the nutritional value of traditional milk with 2g of dietary fiber and 6g of protein per serving. The product is made with cane sugar and leaf extract for a naturally sweet taste and contains 40% less sugar than chocolate almond milk.
