Surging Demand for Functional Dairy Alternatives to Drive the Market Growth
Nowadays, consumers are increasingly seeking functional benefits from the products they consume. They are looking for products with high nutrient content to fulfill their daily nutritional requirements. The dairy alternatives manufacturers are incorporating functional ingredients, such as antioxidants, collagens, adaptogens, and nootropics, in their products to meet the rising demand for functional dairy alternatives. For instance, back in March 2019, Pop and Bottle, a manufacturer of plant-based lattes, launched a new line of functional oat milk lattes with added ingredients such as collagen, adaptogen, and antioxidants. The oat milk latte is cold brew and is certified organic. The addition of functional ingredients enhances the popularity of the products and boosts their adoption among consumers. Thus, the surging demand for functional dairy alternatives is driving the growth of the dairy alternatives market.
Dairy alternatives are made using plant milk such as soy milk, pea milk, almond milk, and coconut milk. Soy milk is more affordable than other plant milk, and it provides a similar amount of protein as whole milk. For instance, 1 liter of whole dairy milk contains 8 g of protein, whereas the same amount of soy milk has 7 g of protein. Thus, soy milk is the ideal replacement for dairy-based milk and milk products. Consumers are highly inclined toward plant-based or vegan-friendly products due to increasing health concerns and increasing awareness of animal welfare. Plant-based products are generally perceived as healthier than conventional ones. This factor is primarily driving the dairy alternatives market size expansion.
Based on source, the dairy alternatives market is segmented into soy, almond, coconut, oats, and others. The soy segment held the largest share of the market in 2020. Soy-based products are becoming popular, especially among women, including isoflavones, lowering the risk of heart disease and breast cancer. Soy milk is one of the most popular and easiest-to-find non-dairy milk. It has the approximately same amount of protein as cow’s milk and is a very good vitamin D and calcium source. Moreover, the increasing adoption of soy-based dairy alternatives among professional athletes and fitness enthusiasts further boosts the growth of the soy segment.

Plant-based yogurts have low fat and cholesterol content, thereby boosting their popularity among health-conscious consumers. The manufacturers of non-dairy yogurt are launching innovative products to expand their customer size. For instance, In June 2019, Yooga launched plant-based yogurt in various innovative flavors, including sea salt chocolate and golden turmeric milk. Such innovations enable companies to gain a competitive advantage, which is further fueling the dairy alternatives market growth.
