Fluid Milk Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021 - 2026

Market Overview:

The global fluid milk market reached a value of US$ 173.8 Billion in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market size to reach US$ 198.69 Billion, growing at a CAGR of 2.3% during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Fluid milk, or beverage milk, represents a staple food for the majority of consumers, particularly in developing nations, such as India and China. There are various operations performed for processing beverage milk, namely standardization, homogenization, pasteurization, and fortification with vitamins A and D. It is highly nutritious and is rich in energy, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals, and minor biological proteins and enzymes. As a result, fluid milk offers myriad health benefits, including increased bone strength, a stronger immune system, and the prevention of various illnesses, such as hypertension, dental decay, dehydration, respiratory problems, obesity, osteoporosis, and some forms of cancer. There are different commercial variants of fluid milk available in the market, including fat-free, reduced fat, whole, and organic milk.

Fluid Milk Market Trends:

The dairy industry has been developing specialty fluid milk beverages to cater to the diverse nutritional needs of consumers across the globe. Lactose-reduced and lactose-free milk and acidophilus milk are produced for consumers with lactose intolerance (maldigestion). The widespread and easy availability of these products is majorly fueling the growth of the market. Other than this, increasing population, rising disposable incomes, changing eating habits and the escalating demand from developing regions are further supporting the market growth. Moreover, rapid advancements and innovations across the dairy chain and consistent emphasis on research and development (R&D), the establishment of strong brand images, and the adoption of improved marketing strategies by leading players are broadening the growth aspects of the market. Furthermore, growing health consciousness amongst consumers has prompted manufacturers to expand the production of fat-free and organic product variants across the globe, which is creating a positive outlook for the market.
