The global dairy ingredients market size reached US$ 69.5 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 99.2 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 6.2% during 2023-2028.

Dairy ingredients are processed as powdered or liquid nutritional and dietary supplements and added to the formulation of dairy products, such as ghee, butter, cheese, ice cream, yogurt, and condensed and dried milk, to enhance their flavor and nutritional content. They generally include colors, sweeteners, stabilizers, cultures, preservatives, and natural or synthetic flavorings. Nowadays, manufacturers are introducing fortified dairy products that contain additional ingredients like probiotics, prebiotics, minerals, proteins, calcium, vitamins, phytoconstituents, omega-3 fatty acids, and other essential nutrients.

Dairy Ingredients Market Trends:
The increasing consumption of dairy products directly or as a base ingredient in the preparation of various dishes represents one of the key factors bolstering the market growth. This can also be attributed to the growing awareness of the health benefits of consuming dairy, such as supporting body growth and controlling blood pressure (BP). Moreover, the escalating demand for organic dairy products on account of the growing prevalence of chronic diseases and the rising consciousness among consumers about the negative impact of consuming synthetic ingredients is driving the market. Apart from this, dairy ingredients are used in sports nutrition to provide carbohydrates for energy, protein for building muscles, and vitamins and minerals for strengthening bones and replacing electrolytes during heavy exercise. This, in confluence with the increasing participation of individuals in sports and physical activities, is contributing to the market growth. Besides this, market players are focusing on developing a wide range of novel flavors, natural colors, and non-genetically modified organisms (GMO) ingredients. They are also offering premium and high-end dairy ingredients, such as skim milk powder, buttermilk powder, whey powder, and complex formulations, which is anticipated to influence the market positively.
