Fluid milk, or beverage milk, represents a staple food for the majority of consumers, particularly in developing nations, such as India and China. There are various operations performed for processing beverage milk, namely standardization, homogenization, pasteurization, and fortification with vitamins A and D. It is highly nutritious and is rich in energy, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals, and minor biological proteins and enzymes. As a result, fluid milk offers myriad health benefits, including increased bone strength, a stronger immune system, and the prevention of various illnesses, such as hypertension, dental decay, dehydration, respiratory problems, obesity, osteoporosis, and some forms of cancer. There are different commercial variants of fluid milk available in the market, including fat-free, reduced fat, whole, and organic milk.

Other than this, increasing population, rising disposable incomes, changing eating habits and the escalating demand from developing regions are further supporting the market growth. Moreover, rapid advancements and innovations across the dairy chain and consistent emphasis on research and development (R&D), the establishment of strong brand images, and the adoption of improved marketing strategies by leading players are broadening the growth aspects of the market.
