Demand for healthy breakfast options drives the growth of products with Health & Wellness attributes

The global dairy & soy food sector was valued at US$426.6 billion in 2017, of which 36.9% of revenue was generated by milk. Rising participation of women in the workforce, coupled with long working hours is leaving consumers with less time to focus on nutrition. Dairy products are well positioned to capitalize on this consumer need due to their inherent health benefits and convenient formats. The improving global economy is anticipated to revive demand for the dairy & soy food sector and it is forecast to record a CAGR of 4.4%during 2017–2022.

Growing consumer desire to boost nutritional intake of nutrients such as calcium and protein, as well as the micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals available naturally in dairy products, is driving demand for dairy & soy food with health & wellness attributes. Additionally, as consumers increasingly switch from traditional breakfasts to nutritional yet convenient alternatives, they find dairy & soy food with health & wellness claims highly appealing.

As a result of the growing awareness of health issues across the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, consumers are expected to switch to functional dairy products fortified with vitamins. Therefore, product specificity will emerge as the key driver and dairy & soy manufacturers should focus on offering bespoke products.
