Newark, Feb. 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Brainy Insights estimates that the USD 20 billion in 2022 global plant milk market will reach USD 51.87 billion in 2032. An alternative to dairy milk is plant milk. It is a beverage that aims to mimic the flavour and consistency of conventional milk. It comes from sources that are plants. The rising acceptance of plant milk can be attributed to several factors, including shifting dietary habits, rising rates of lactose intolerance, and environmental issues around conventional dairy farming. Soybeans, almonds, oats, rice, coconuts, cashews, hemp seeds, and yellow peas are common sources of plant milk. Plant milk has different textures and flavours depending on the type of source. Almond milk has a nutty flavour, and soy milk has a creamy smoothness. Plant milk is a good alternative to dairy milk since it includes the same important vitamins and minerals. For people who are lactose intolerant, plant milk offers a lactose-free substitute and treats protein allergies in cow’s milk.

Market Dynamics

Drivers: Dietary modifications and the rising incidence of lactose intolerance.

The demand for plant milk will rise as more health-conscious people switch to it due to its many health benefits, including decreased saturated fat content. The frequency of allergies further fuels the need for plant milk to the proteins in cow’s milk. The growing popularity of plant-based and vegan diets will help fuel the market’s expansion. With new business ventures and a growing range of plant-based alternatives, the plant milk industry will continue to grow and thrive.

Restraints: Plant milk’s nutritional value and other ingredient concerns.

Several nutritional, allergy, added sugar, thickening, and stabilizing factors may have a detrimental effect on the market for plant milk. Consumers looking to maintain balanced eating habits are concerned about nutritional differences, particularly the decreased protein level in some plant milks compared to cow’s milk. Consumer interest in plant milk will also decline due to the possibility of allergies from particular plant sources. For consumers who are concerned about their health, the inclusion of added sugars is another major worry. Consequently, the expansion of the industry will be constrained by the artificial and nutritional elements present in plant milk.

Opportunities: Growing knowledge regarding plant-based milk.

The market for plant milk is being driven by concerns about animal abuse and conventional dairy farming, as well as growing environmental consciousness. Plant milk is becoming increasingly popular among customers as an environmentally responsible choice. The consumer market is growing as new plant milk variants with various flavours and textures are introduced. The demand for plant milk is rising due to clever marketing campaigns highlighting the product’s health advantages, ethical considerations, and beneficial environmental impact. Celebrities and social media influencers also increase brand and product recognition and visibility. As a result, the growing public knowledge of plant milk will spur commercial expansion.

Challenges: Environmental concerns.

Plant milk production has several factors that might reduce its appeal to consumers on the sustainability front as its demand increases over time. For instance, almond milk requires large amounts of water, which is not ideal for a world facing water scarcity. Land use is another environmental concern, and chemical fertilisers are used to grow these plants. Transportation, processing, and packaging also contribute to the overall environmental impact as these crops can’t be grown everywhere, given the weather considerations. Therefore, the environmental concerns and the active advocacy by stakeholders may challenge the market’s growth.
