Global UHT Milk Market to reach a volume of 147.1 Billion Litres by 2026, Bolstered by Growing Health Consciousness Among Individuals

Published on Jan 04, 2022

As per the latest report by IMARC Group titled “UHT Milk Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026,” the global UHT milk market reached a volume of 118.3 Billion Litres in 2020. UHT milk, also known as ultra-high temperature milk, is sterilized by the UHT pasteurization process to remove pathogens while preserving its nutrients. The process usually involves heating the milk to a temperature beyond 135°C for a duration of 1 or 2 seconds, which assists in increasing the shelf life of the milk without adding preservatives. Pasteurized milk is then packed in aseptic containers to prevent the growth of potentially harmful microorganisms. These packed containers can be stored at room temperature with minimal the need for refrigeration and can be consumed directly without the need for boiling.

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 UHT Milk Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the rising apartment culture with restricted or negligible refrigeration space. In addition, there has been an increasing demand for UHT milk among the working population with hectic schedules. It is also gaining immense popularity among small-scale restaurants and food outlet chains, especially in developing countries. Besides this, UHT milk is widely preferred over fresh milk in countries facing severe electricity issues, representing another major growth-inducing factor. Moreover, key manufacturers are introducing organic, flavored, and lactose-free product variants to expand their consumer base. Furthermore, rapid urbanization, inflating income levels, growing health consciousness and rising awareness among the masses about the benefits of consuming UHT milk are anticipated to propel the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a volume of 147.1 Billion Litres by 2026.
