The latest report by IMARC Group, titled "UHT Milk Market in India: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2023-2028," finds that the UHT Milk Market in India reached 1,006 Million Liters in 2022. Ultra-high temperature (UHT) milk is a type of milk that is sterilized by heating it to a high temperature exceeding 135-150 degrees Celsius for a few seconds. This treatment kills bacteria and spores present in the milk, making it shelf-stable and able to be stored at room temperature for several months without the need for refrigeration. It is available in a variety of forms, such as whole milk, skimmed milk, and flavored milk. In addition, it has a slightly different taste and texture compared to fresh milk. Owing to these benefits, UHT milk is gaining traction among consumers across India.
India UHT Milk Market Trends:
The market is primarily driven by the growing demand for convenience foods among the masses. UHT milk serves as an easy-to-store option that does not require refrigeration, making it popular among consumers with busy lifestyles. In addition, the growing influence of western culture on the dietary patterns of individuals represents another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, the Government of India has launched several initiatives to boost the dairy sector in the country, including the National Dairy Plan and the Rashtriya Gokul Mission.
