The global yogurt market was evaluated at US$120.975 billion for the year 2020, growing at a CAGR of 4.16% reaching the market size of US$160.887 billion by the year 2027.
Despite the propensity of consumers to opt for traditional homemade yogurt in countries of emerging economies like India, packaged spoonable and drinkable yogurt has gained ground over the past few years because the market players have capitalized on the preference for traditional tastes and invested in communicating the health benefits that are equivalent to that of the traditional ones. In other parts of the world, the surging concerns for animal welfare, the environment, and global warming coupled with an aversion to dairy have shifted the consumer’s preference towards newly formulated yogurt products which are increasingly doing away with artificial additives and preservatives. The other aspect that is increasingly enticing for the growing number of health-conscious consumers around the world is a formulation with relatively low sugar content. For instance, Arla Bio Nur, a reported trendsetter made available to consumers in Germany by Arla Foods, comprises 75% organic yogurt combined with 25% organic fruit per cup with only 6.8 - 7.7 grams of sugar per 100 grams. Furthermore, General Mills offers YQ by Yoplait, a yogurt brand with up to 17 grams of protein and as little as 1 gram of sugar in a 5.3-ounce container.
Moreover, the rise of dietary preference for alternative proteins has further made ample room for food ingredient companies to bring about new offerings facilitating and incentivizing the players in the yogurt market to invest in non-dairy-based yogurt and consequently increasing their product portfolio, respectively. The market for plant-based protein in Europe has been steadily gaining steam because of a huge number of consumers who have developed a taste for plant-based alternatives to a few food and beverage products. Further, as a response from the end of the value chain, there are certain aspects such as improvement of the nutritional value of the product; intake of amino acids; intake of fibres; low saturated fat content; improvement of the ratio of protein/fat that has further added to the potential for the yogurt makers to venture into plant-based alternatives. The plant-based or nondairy alternative has gathered such momentum that the Plant-Based Foods Association (PBFA) based out of San Francisco, CA, USA, has released a set of voluntary labelling standards for plant-based "yogurts" – another product category whose labelling terminology has been caught in the crossfire of the ongoing battle over the appropriate labelling for plant-based “meats” and “dairy.”
Further, in cognizance of this consumer trend that is surging upward, various developments have taken place in the global yogurt sector that is poised to fuel the healthy growth of the market during the forecast period, driven by the human end-user perspective.
In 2019, Danone launched a line of oat milk yogurts under its So Delicious brand, made available in four flavours Triple Berry, Spiced Pear & Fig, Strawberry Rhubarb, and Sweet Mango. Each flavour is reportedly nut-free, soy-free, vegan, gluten-free, and Non-GMO Project Verified. The product was launched to contribute to the company's growing dairy alternative portfolio, which among others, includes another yogurt brand from Oat Yeah. Along the same lines of capitalizing on the recent wave of oats which the consumers of alternative dairy have been so fervently in pursuit of, Chobani too, during the same year announced the plan to launch at-based yogurts, traditional Greek yogurt with the popular cereal grain on the bottom. Again, during the same year, Noosa Yoghurt announced its launch of a new high-protein, low-sugar range of yogurt called HiLo, which features 14 grams of protein and 12 grams of sugar per 5.3-ounce cup (except for the plain varietal). Moreover, the company uses rBST-free milk with premium ingredients such as wild blueberries and wildflower North American honey, making the line in six flavours: vanilla bean, blueberry, mixed berry, strawberry, plain, and peach. Again in 2019, the first Icelandic-style yogurt in USASiggi’s, which has been owned by Groupe Lactalis since 2018, has come up with a plant-based yogurt that is reported made form from a proprietary blend of coconut, macadamia, and pea protein and is laden with a notable nutritional credential. Earlier in 2019, Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone had reportedly invested in Drum Foods International Pvt. Ltd, the maker of flavoured yogurt brand Epigamia, as part of a strategic partnership that will also see her endorse the brand. The investment has been made through KA Enterprises Llp, Padukone’s strategic initiative arm. Epigamia, which makes flavoured yogurt, Greek yogurt, smoothies, and mishti doi, (a sweetened variant of yogurt that originates from East India), will use the money to scale up its presence across cities.
The Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the global yogurt market.
Yogurt's probiotic product line, and capacity to boost digestion, boost metabolism, and strengthen the immune system have all contributed to an increase in consumption across the Asia-Pacific market. Desserts often include yogurt. It is available in flavors that are well-liked by customers, including fruit yogurt, organic yogurt, and drinkable yogurt. For instance, yogurt products are a staple of Indian cuisine, and this trend is anticipated to continue in the projection period due primarily to its health advantages. Additionally, among the main markets for yogurt in the Asia-Pacific area are China and Japan, while Australia and India are seeing increased demand due to increased knowledge of the health advantages of yogurt.
