These snacks are rich in essential nutrients, such as calcium, magnesium, selenium, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, and vitamin B12 and B5. As the prominence of plant-based diets continues to grow, dairy snacks are evolving to fit the needs of consumers that are looking for healthier options. These snacks are not only a delicious way to enjoy a snack, but they also offer multiple health benefits. A majority of these products are essential for growth as they help meet the daily recommended intake of vitamins and minerals.

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 Dairy Snacks Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the increasing consumption of ready-to-eat (RTE) milk products. In line with this, various dairy snacks, such as ice creams, cheese, and yogurts, are continuously witnessing a considerable demand among the young population, which, in turn, is contributing to the market expansion. This has also led to offering growth opportunities for manufacturers to introduce innovative dairy products, including variants with powdered ingredients for a longer shelf life. Furthermore, rapid innovations in manufacturing practices, such as the development of soy milk and gluten-free products, are creating a positive outlook for the market. Apart from this, the rising demand for a protein-rich diet due to the growing health consciousness among consumers is positively influencing the product demand. Moreover, the escalating popularity of craft and artisanal cheese products due to their nutritional content is catalyzing the growth of the market. Besides this, the easy availability of dairy snacks through various distribution channels is favoring the market growth. Additionally, rapid urbanization and the growing demand for protein-fortified foods and beverages are strengthening the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 302.5 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 6% during 2022-2027.
