The global mozzarella cheese market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 4.21% over the forecast period to reach a market size of US$21.646 billion in 2027, up from US$16.215 billion in 2020. Mozzarella Cheese is an Italian cheese product produced from Italian buffalo’s milk, with the use of the pasta filet method. The color of the cheese is usually white but may vary according to the animal’s diet and the output of the milk. The cheese has higher moisture content and because of that, it is usually served the day after it is made. It can be kept in vacuum-sealed packages for a significant amount of time. Several types of mozzarella cheese are used for several types of pizza and pasta dishes, and it is also used or served with basil and sliced tomatoes. Several variants of the cheese have been formulated over time. One of them is low-moisture mozzarella cheese, which is used especially on pizza. This type of variant is widely used in the food service industry because of its minimum galactose content. Consumer preference toward moderate or minimum brewing for cheese on pizza has led to the adaption of different types of mozzarella cheese variants. In Italy, buffalo milk is used to make mozzarella cheese. Only selected and government-approved mozzarella cheese is made or produced from buffalo milk. This type of cheese holds more significance than other types of mozzarella, whose production is done from semi-coagulated and non-Italian milk. These types of cheese can also be made from cow, sheep, and goat milk cheese made from goat milk is registering significant demand because goat milk is more digestible than cow milk. It is a novel source for making cheese, and there are not many producers for that. Mozzarella made from cow’s milk is cheaper than the one made from buffalo milk. Major companies have been developing clean, healthy, and nutritious mozzarella cheese products,  with plant-based cheese generating significant demand in the market. Recently, Miyoko, one of the market's key participants, has just begun making vegan mozzarella cheese products. With the addition of Mozzarella cheese to its inventory, the company has seen tremendous market expansion. Other companies and startups have been playing an imperative role in the growth of the market. Hello Friend, an Australian plant-based cheese company, has been providing premium vegan mozzarella cheese products to its customers. The company has been using soy as an ingredient to make mozzarella cheese products.

Pizza cheese will drive market growth. Several varieties and types of cheese are manufactured, especially for pizza use. These include modified and processed mozzarella cheeses and variants. The majority of the content in pizza cheese is typically mozzarella, which will have a positive market impact because pizza cheese is widely popular worldwide.  The International Dictionary of Food and Cooking states that pizza cheese is similar to mozzarella made from cow’s milk. It is a soft-spun curd cheese. Low moisture mozzarella cheese is widely used to produce pizza cheese. Cheese is usually available in blocks from which it can be sliced or made into granules for its use in other types of food dishes. The advantage of lower moisture mozzarella is that it is easier to grate, has a firm texture, and has better melting and browning characteristics. It is also less perishable. Mozzarella is the most popular and used pizza cheese globally. In the United States, 30% of pizza cheese is made from Mozzarella. Various companies, manufacturers, and food chains have been experimenting and developing innovative and novel pizza cheese products for their use in the foodservice industry. Ornua Ingredients Europe introduced a novel range of pizza cheeses on the 7th of December 2020. The cheese was produced at Ornua’s Ledbury Facility and was refined and developed by the company’s TCS Technology. The company’s brand, Spinneyfield Consistent Shred, has three Mozzarella Cheese Products. In November 2020, Pizza Hut introduced two novel plant-based items to the market. The food chain launched two beyond-pan pizzas known as the Great Beyond Pizza and the Beyond Italian Sausage Pizza. The pizza included mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce.

The health benefits of mozzarella will have a significant impact on the market Mozzarella cheese is registering significant growth in the market because of its various health benefits. Consumers are moving towards healthier and more nutritious products, which will have a major impact on the cheese market. It is imperative to use the right type of cheese product as it will have a major impact on body weight and health. The Niacin and Vitamin B3 present in mozzarella cheese help in the prevention of various types of diseases, which also include arthritis. It also helps in the reduction of diabetes risk because of its various types of properties. Biotin deficiency is a major concern for pregnant women worldwide, and mozzarella cheese helps in recovering from it. These types of health benefits and properties will have a major positive impact on the global mozzarella cheese market. Problems related to obesity are  expected to hinder the market growth

Obesity has become a major problem globally. According to the OECD, the United States has the largest obese population, with 38.2% of the population above 15 being in the obese category. Mexico has 32.4 % of the adult population in the category in 2015. According to the World Health Organisation, worldwide obesity has increased more than three times since 1975. In 2016, around 1.9 billion people above 18 years of age were overweight, and of that, 650 million people were obese, globally. Over 13% of the global population in 2016 was obese. 39% of adults worldwide were overweight. The reason they cause overweight and obesity is a large energy imbalance between calories expended and consumed. Cheese contains a high amount of saturated fat, which is an imperative reason for a surge in weight. Cheese contains saturated fat, which increases the risk of noncommunicable diseases such as musculoskeletal disorders, cardiovascular disease, and various types of cancer such as breast, liver, colon, kidney, and others  There has been a surge in the number of health-conscious customers worldwide, who are now minimizing their intake of products with high-fat content. Mozzarella cheese contains a major amount of saturated fat content, which could hurt the market growth in the coming years. Several groups and businesses are attempting to change cheese-based goods by reducing dairy content and shifting to plant-based alternatives. Plant-based foods are lower in fat, as well as being more nutritional, and healthier. Despite the disadvantages, the Mozzarella Cheese market is expected to grow rapidly in the future years.
