The global ice cream dried mix market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 3.63%, reaching US$2,848.789 million in 2028 from US$2,219.609 million in 2021.

There is a severe scarcity of milk and milk products during the lean season. Therefore, significant developments in drying processes have surmounted this challenge by producing ice cream mix powder during the flush season and utilizing it during the lean season for ice cream production. The benefits of dried ice cream mix include a decrease in volume that results in a reduction in storage space, simplicity of packaging and handling, a decreased ability to expire, the elimination of the need for refrigerator storage space, and cheaper transportation costs owing to the decrease in weight.

Powder mix is useful and efficient for distribution since it has a constant shelf life and is portable. These characteristics make powder mix handy for people without access to liquid mix distribution since they enable the mix to be sent anywhere. Except for an ice cream maker and power, easy mobility enables users to create ice cream practically whenever and wherever they choose.

According to U.S. Dairy Export Council, the composition of skimmed milk powder in soft-serve ice cream dry mix is 42.50%, and that of granulated sucrose is 16.40%. Other ingredients like sweetener syrup, butter powder, carboxymethyl cellulose, etc., are present in less percentage.

Growth drivers:

Small-scale ice cream producers can greatly benefit from the growing trend of dried ice cream mix. For people who make their ice cream at home utilizing tiny domestic freezers, a sizable market may be developed; due to its high milk fat content, the dried ice cream mix is very vulnerable to oxidative rancidity when stored. The dried mix must have a low moisture content, be gas-packed, and be kept under low-temperature settings to prevent the emergence of this specific fault. If it is doubly gas-packed, dried ice cream with less than 3% moisture stays well even at 30°C.

Continuous product developments by key market players.

Over the forecast period, it is anticipated that new product releases are anticipated to continue to be a top strategy for industry players. For instance, in April 2023, True Scoops, the cutting-edge maker of ice cream mixes that encourages consumers to make their ice cream, said that it had started a Kickstarter campaign to fund the manufacture of its brand-new DIY prints. The $15K campaign will help the second branch of the well-known business for making dried ice cream mixes in the baking section, now referred to as "The Maker Aisle," of supermarkets worldwide.

Additionally, major key players offer dried ice cream mix throughout the globe. For instance, Walnut Creek food offers dried ice cream mix in different flavors, including Dutch chocolate junket, simple strawberry junket, very vanilla junket, Danish dessert junket, and ice cream mix junket. Powder for DHARMASUT Ice Cream has five ice cream powder flavors included in this all-in-one combo package: kesar pista, mango, butterscotch, chocolate, and vanilla.

Powdered Bakers Ice Cream Mix is a box of vanilla ice cream with classic flavor that is versatile and easy to pair with anything. Consumers can improve practically any dish by adding vanilla ice cream, from shakes to sundaes, custards, and waffles. The mix of Kesari ice cream is another combination set.

This package has two different ice cream tastes: traditional vanilla and subdued kesar pista. This is tasty and full of other vital nutrients. Premix Rich Day Strawberry Ice Cream is also a viable option. This pack is a great option for baking cakes, making smoothies, cereal, and tasty milk drinks in addition to producing ice cream.

China is the largest dried ice cream mix market in the Asia Pacific region. 

The ice cream dried mix industry has expanded in China because of the advantages brought by a growing market for production and distribution. The millennial generation's growing desire for frozen desserts will likely drive significant expansion in the Chinese ice cream dried mix market.

Further, most customers choose ice cream dried mix to substitute meals as they are convenient to prepare. Furthermore, the country's demand is also driven by busy lives, health and well-being concerns, and rising lactose intolerance among consumers, causing China's ice cream business revenue. For instance, in March 2022, released Annual results by Chinese dairy company Mengniu, the company stated that revenue from its ice cream business increased by 61% to reach RMB 4,240.200 million in 2021.

Additionally, a growing interest in low-calorie ice creams and a desire for convenient ice cream with wide flavor varieties are allowing businesses to capitalize on the market's growth potential in China. For instance, Shandong Tianjiao Biotech Co., Ltd. provides hard and soft ice cream powder. They are simple to prepare and are available in various flavors, including blueberry, melon, strawberry, mango, vanilla, milk, and chocolate. They are low-fat ice cream dried mix with high nutrition, smooth and fragrant, high expanding rate, and delicate taste. Shandong Bigtree Dreyfus Special Meals Food Co., Ltd. also provides a soft-serve ice cream powder blend.

The non-dairy creamer LB01 is a light-yellow ice cream-dried mix with a milk flavor. It is made from premium materials. Moreover, the growing ice cream consumption and business in the country is anticipated to boost the demand for ice cream dried mix, thereby enhancing market growth.
