Growing demand for local, sustainable and organic food production is expected to positively impact the cheese making market over the forecast period. The production of organic food, including organic dairy products, places a strong emphasis on consumer health, environmental protection and animal welfare. Consumers are now increasingly concerned about how food is raised and prepared and are willing to pay a little more for something they consider healthy. On the other side Europethe import rate is very high (especially for fruits and vegetables) because the production rate is much lower than the consumer demand for organic products.

For example, according to the Soil Association, sales of organic products in the UK increased by 4.5% in 2019 to reach £2.45 billion. Similarly, organic food sales in the United States increased by 5.9% to reach $47.9 billion, according to the 2019 Organic Industry Survey. This growing demand for organic products such as cheese presents tremendous opportunities for dairy producers in both developed and developing countries, which is expected to drive the cheese manufacturing industry market over the forecast period.

The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak acted as a massive restraint in the cheese manufacturing market in 2020 as supply chains were disrupted due to trade restrictions and consumption declined due to lockdowns imposed by governments around the world. COVID-19 is an infectious disease with flu-like symptoms including fever, cough and difficulty breathing. The virus was first identified in 2019 in Wuhan, Hubei province of the People’s Republic of Chinaand spread all over the world, including Western Europe, North Americaand Asia.

Food and beverage manufacturers depend on sourcing raw materials from domestic and international suppliers. As many governments restricted the movement of goods between countries and locally, manufacturers had to stop production due to a lack of raw materials.

Additionally, restrictions on trade in non-essential goods and fears of contamination from manufacturing facilities contributed to the decline. The outbreak has negatively impacted businesses throughout 2020 and into 2021. However, the cheese manufacturing market is expected to recover from the shock throughout the forecast period as it is a “black swan event and not related to persistent or fundamental weaknesses in the global market or economy.

Internet of Things (IoT) technology is increasingly being used to track dairy products and ensure safe product handling. IoT technology consists of a network of devices, vehicles or other elements that constantly exchange data and provide information about a process or system. This technology is used to track the ingredients used in products.

Internet-connected equipment in trucks and storage coolers can be used to monitor dairy products and tag them with environmental conditions such as temperature or location that provide information on safe product handling during transport . For example, the Chinese government has established the National Food Quality Safety Traceability Platform, using IoT technology to improve the quality and safety of food production supply chains.
