The prevalence of various food allergies and intolerances is on the rise in the US and lactose intolerance is prominent among them. For this reason, cheeses with lower quantities of lactose are set to gain share. Cheeses made from goat’s milk contain less lactose than their cow’s milk counterparts, making them easier to digest for lactose intolerant people and those with sensitive stomachs.

Trends

2016 saw volume growth equal to the 2011-2016 CAGR, but lower than review period average value growth, due to falling prices. Cheese in the US is a robust category, with most Americans reporting that they regularly consume the product. Unit prices declined in 2016 due to an abundance of supply and low milk prices.

Competitive Landscape

Kraft Heinz again led sales in 2016, with 27% of the US cheese market. The company’s sales declined in 2016, by 1%, to US$6.1 billion. US consumers are increasingly wary of “big food”, and Kraft’s 2016 decline in sales is indicative of a greater shift away from large corporate producers and towards smaller companies. This trend is even sometimes referred to as “craft, not Kraft.” The company whose share increased the most in 2016 was Arla, which saw a value increase of 20% in sales, to reach US$220 million. Arla announced its intention to focus on the US market, expanding distribution and eventually becoming a household brand.

Prospects

Cheese is predicted to post a 2% constant value CAGR over the 2016-2021 forecast period, reaching US$25.8 billion at constant 2016 prices. Volume sales of cheese are expected to increase by an average of 1% annually. Demand for cheese is expected to rise as knowledge about different cheese varieties increases. Retailers and cheese producers alike are expected to continue to educate consumers about speciality cheeses. Cheese sales should benefit from consumer demand for more artisanal cheeses and retailers’ expanding shelf space for cheese.
