Product Overview

Dairy Products are foods derived from the milk of mammals such as cows, buffalos, goats, dogs, yaks, and camels. Since milk is a liquid, it is susceptible to microbial growth, resulting in product disintegration. To prevent this issue and to prolong the shelf life of milk, it is processed into cheese, butter, milk powder, ice cream, yogurt, and other Dairy Products. The global demand for Dairy Products has been growing due to a lack of strict regulatory structures and an increase in the amount of money coming in from both the private and public sectors. The growing production of milk products is due to the flourishing agriculture and animal husbandry industries in many parts of the world.

Market Highlights

The growth of online stores is also propelling the selling of high-end products. The major drivers for this market's growth are increasing dairy product consumption and a change in customer preference from meat to Dairy Products for protein enrichment. The fast availability of Dairy Products as a result of modern retail facilities and cold chain logistics propels demand growth even further. During the Covid-19 pandemic, major product sales across online distribution networks also aided market development.
