Global Cheese Market to Reach US$ 113.3 Billion by 2027, Spurred by Increasing Number of Fast-Food Chains

May 19, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Cheese Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global cheese market size reached US$ 77.6 Billion in 2021. Cheese is a dairy product that solidifies the milk protein casein obtained from cows, buffalo, goats, or sheep. The color, taste, and texture of the cheese primarily depend on milk, pasteurization, butterfat content, bacteria, mold, processing, and aging. Moreover, it is a rich source of nutrients, such as calcium, phosphorous, zinc, vitamin A and B12, and protein that are vital for building strong bones and muscles. It is available in diverse flavors and textures and has a longer shelf life as compared to other dairy products. Owing to these properties, cheese has become one of the most consumed fermented foods worldwide. 

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Cheese Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the rising number of food chains across the globe. Cheese varieties, such as mozzarella, parmesan, feta, Roquefort, and cheddar, are widely used in various fast-food preparations such as pizzas, sandwiches and wraps. In addition, the increasing trend of westernization is escalating the demand for cheese in emerging economies such as China and India. This can also be attributed to rapid urbanization, the emerging trend of eating out, and the rising consumption of processed foods. Besides this, the leading market players are introducing low- or zero-fat cheese variants to attract health-conscious consumers. They are also investing in aggressive promotional strategies to create awareness among consumers in untapped markets. This, coupled with significant development in the organized retail sector, is positively influencing the market growth. Furthermore, the easy availability of cheese in convenient packaging options, such as single slices wrapped in plastic, cheese spray, cheese spread, and squeeze tubes, is also creating a favorable market outlook across the globe. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 113.3 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.31% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
