The North America ice cream market is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period to reach a value of USD XX million by 2021. Nestle and Unilever are the major players in this region. The sales of basic variety ice creams have been declining in favor of premium ones. Currently, the United States is leading the way due to the introduction of handcrafted ice creams, which is relatively linked to the market maturity.

A rise in the demand for ice creams, from consumers above 50 years, is another factor that contributes to the growth. However, health concerns pose a threat to this market. Hence, ice cream manufacturers have introduced lactose-free ice creams, especially to cater to people suffering from lactose intolerance.
