The Latin America cheese market is currently witnessing steady growth. Cheese is prepared by coagulating the protein casein present in milk. It contains fats and proteins from milk, which is mainly derived from cows, buffalo, goats, or sheep. At present, a wide range of cheese textures, flavors and forms are available in the Latin American region, including mozzarella, parmesan, feta, roquefort and cheddar.
Latin America is home to prominent market players who produce and offer a variety of cheese in the region. This, in confluence with the escalating demand for cheese ingredients, such as cultures, enzymes, milk, additives, and other cheese-related products, represents one of the significant factors driving the market growth. Apart from this, rapidly changing lifestyles and eating patterns of individuals are acting as another growth-inducing factor. However, the sudden outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has led to the implementation of lockdown restrictions across the region to prevent the spread of the pandemic. As a result, the market players are encountering supply chain restrictions. The market is anticipated to witness normalcy once lockdown relaxations are implemented by governing agencies. Looking forward, the market is expected to continue its moderate growth during the forecast period (2021-2026).
