Global Milk Powder Market to Exhibit Moderate Growth During 2020-2025, Catalyzed by Extensive Application in the F&B Industry

Published on Jun 11, 2020

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Milk Powder Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025,” the global milk powder market size reached 10.8 Million Tons in 2019. Milk powder, also known as dried milk, is a dairy product that is produced by evaporating the water content of the milk using evaporation or the spray drying process. During the process, the milk is pasteurized under controlled temperatures so as to eliminate any microbial growth. Milk powder is a rich source of zinc, calcium, magnesium, vitamins A, B12, D, E and K, as well as other nutritional elements, such as antioxidants. Although powdered milk and fresh milk share several nutritional similarities, milk powder does not require refrigeration and has a significantly extended shelf life.

Note: 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 Milk Powder Market Trends:

One of the key factors driving the milk powder market is the extensive product application in the food and beverage industry. It is utilized in the preparation of confectionaries, cakes, smoothies, bakery items, and infant formula. Besides this, the leading manufacturers are employing newer technologies and sustainable product packaging. For instance, they are utilizing green refrigeration systems, ceramic microfiltration systems that remove heat-resistant microbes from the milk, along with improved evaporators that reduce energy consumption and avoid denaturing milk proteins. Along with this, the growth of the market is also being influenced by improving living standards, expansion across end use industries, and easy transportability and low distribution costs of milk powder. Looking forward, the market is further projected to exhibit moderate growth during 2020-2025.
