The fermented milk market holds a substantial scope for the market growth.

Growth of the global population and rise in per capita income boost the market growth, thus increasing the production of dairy items. The change in taste and preference of consumers affect the sales, which in response lead manufacturers to develop differentiated products as per consumer dietary concerns. Numerous players are entering the fermented milk products market with innovative food products, using milk as their base. Emerging innovative food items are expected to increase the market competition in the years to come.

The growth in population in developing countries, such as China and India, has increased the demand for yogurt, butter, and cheese to fulfill their food requirement. This increase in population coupled with per capita income has increased the demand for dairy products, further raising the production of milk. The per capita income measures the average income earned per person in a given area (city, region, and country) in a specified year. It is used to measure a country’s standard of living by dividing the area’s total income by its total population. In emerging countries, per capita income is more compared to developed countries and hence, the consumption of dairy products is eventually higher.

The fermented milk market is segmented on the basis of type, distribution channel, and region. By type, it is categorized into cheese, yogurt, butter, sour cream, and others. The yogurt segment was valued at $ 130.1 billion and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% (2019–2026) to reach $199.9 billion by 2026. The others segment is expected to be the fastest growing segment with a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period.
