The global dairy alternatives market size is projected to grow from USD 17.3 billion in 2018 to USD 29.6 billion by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 11.4% during the forecast period. Increasing cases of lactose intolerance and milk allergies in several infants, as well as cases of milk allergies in adults, resulting in an adverse immune reaction after ingestion of animal milk have been driving the demand for various dairy alternatives such as rice milk, soy milk, and oat milk.
The major vendors for dairy alternatives include The Whitewaves Food Company (US), The Hain Celestial Group (US), Blue Diamond Growers (US), Sunopta (Canada), Sanitarium Health and Wellbeing Company (Australia), Freedom Foods Group (Australia), Eden Foods (US), Nutriops S.L. (Spain), Earth’s Own Food Company (Canada), Triballat Noyal (France), Valsoia S.P.A (Italy), Dohler GmBh (Germany),Organic Valley (US), and Panos Brands LLC (US). These players have adopted various growth strategies such as expansions and new product launches to expand their presence in the global dairy alternatives market further. New product launches have been the most dominating strategy adopted by major players. This strategy has helped them to increase their presence in different regions.

What is the challenge posed by the limited availability of raw materials?
Rising deforestation in developing countries results in the scarcity of raw materials for dairy alternatives such as soy, almond, and rice. Further, extremely cold climatic conditions in countries such as the UK, France, and Spain hamper the production of agricultural produce. For instance, soy milk is produced from whole soybeans or full-fat soy flour; almond milk is made from ground almonds that are free from lactose and cholesterol; oat milk is lactose-free milk obtained naturally from oats, other grains, and beans. Unavailability of these agricultural raw materials restricts the production of alternative dairy beverages by European manufacturers.
The setting up of a large number of industries in developing countries such as China and Australia has diminished the availability of agricultural land. This creates a scarcity of raw material and prevents the production of dairy alternative products.
