According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Camel Dairy Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, the global camel dairy market reached a value of around US$ 6 Billion in 2018, registering a CAGR of nearly 4% during 2011-2018. Camel milk has a higher nutritional value as compared to the milk produced by cows. It is a rich source of iron, magnesium, sodium, copper, potassium, manganese, and Vitamin A and C. Apart from this, camel milk also has a high content of immunity-boosting antibodies like potent immunoglobulins which aid in minimizing the risk of acquiring autoimmune diseases. However, the price of camel milk is comparatively more than cow milk as camel breeding costs are higher. Despite this, the health benefits offered by camel milk have increased its demand among consumers across the globe.
Camel milk is currently gaining traction among diabetic patients worldwide as it helps in improving lipid profiles and decreasing insulin resistance. The rising prevalence of diabetes, especially in countries like the United States, China and India, is strengthening the growth of the camel dairy industry. Moreover, manufacturers are now investing in the formulation of value-added products, such as camel milk-based ice-creams, chocolates, cheese and ghee, in order to expand their consumer base. Further, the UAE Ministry of Economy has provided a value-added tax (VAT) exemption certificate to Emirates Industry for Camel Milk and Products (EICMP), a Dubai-based camel milk producer. The certificate exempts custom duty on imports of the company’s products by Arab countries and is expected to increase the company’s camel milk exports. Such incentives are projected to boost the trade of camel milk globally, thereby boosting the market growth. On account of the abovementioned factors, the market value is projected to cross US$ 8 Billion by 2024, expanding at a CAGR of 8% during 2019-2024.
