As per the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Flavoured Milk Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, the global flavoured milk market size reached US$ 43.2 Billion in 2018. Flavoured milk represents one of the most popular dairy-based beverages and consists of milk, sweeteners, preservatives, food colourings, and artificial or natural flavours. It is pasteurized through the ultra-high-temperature (UHT) treatment, which gives it a longer shelf-life than conventional milk. Moreover, it is considered as a good alternative of regular milk; especially for those who do not prefer drinking plain milk. Although it has the same nutritional value as regular milk, it is relatively more appealing to consumers.
Global Flavoured Milk Market Trends:
Flavoured milk offers nutrients, such as calcium, vitamins, proteins, potassium and carbohydrates, which assist in strengthening the bones and muscles. It also comprises small amounts of sugar that enhances the palatability of these drinks, thereby improving the overall nutritional intake among the non-milk drinkers. Moreover, numerous variants of flavoured milk are currently available in the market, including vanilla, mango, chocolate and strawberry. Apart from this, unlike regular milk which needs to be boiled before consumption, flavoured milk can be consumed directly without the requirement of boiling. This makes it suitable for individuals who have hectic schedules. Further, manufacturers are increasing their marketing initiatives through various advertising media, such as newspaper and television, to enhance product awareness among consumers in untapped markets. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 68.8 Billion by 2024, expanding at a CAGR of 8.1% during 2019-2024.
