Key findings from this report...
-The global dairy industry is highly fragmented, with the top 10 companies representing about 22.4% of the total market size in 2006.
-The global dairy market reached $402.5bn in 2006, representing a five-year CAGR of 3.7% and it is forecast to reach about $487.2bn in 2011, representing a five-year CAGR of 4.9%.
-The leading dairy companies are focussing innovation on organic and functional dairy. Other latest developments have included products that are low fat, contain natural ingredients and no preservatives.
-Nestlé was the global industry leader with a 5.0% market share in 2006, followed by Danone (2.5%) and Dean Foods (2.4%).
-Parmalat’s dairy business recorded revenues of R3,546m ($4,861m) for the fiscal year ended December 2007, an increase of 6.1% over 2006. Higher revenues in fiscal 2007 were mainly due to higher sales volume in Canada and Italy. The dairy revenues accounted for 91.8% of its consolidated revenues in 2007.
Some key issues answered by this report...
-Growing demand for dairy products in Asia is driving global milk prices. The increase in demand has been fuelled by population growth, increases in personal income and Western-style influences on the Asian diet (demand for non-native foods such as cheese slices, yogurt and skimmed milk among young urbanites).
-Contracting European supply of milk. The milk quota system (introduced in 1984) has placed a limit on the amount of milk produced each year by EU dairy farmers. EU-25 milk production declined 0.3% during September 2004–07 and 1.4% in September 2007.
-Adverse climatic conditions in Australia and New Zealand. Australia and New Zealand are the two major milk exporters in the world. In 2005, both countries witnessed a drop in milk production due to adverse climatic conditions, with Australia’s output falling 0.3% and New Zealand down 4.0% year-on-year. Decline in output of world’s major milk exporters will impact the global milk supply and therefore, will lead to a rise in milk prices.
