Key Market Trends

Perception of Flavored Milk as a Healthy and Tasty Option over Unhealthy Beverages

For consumers who do not want to choose between health, wellness, taste, and ease, flavored milk is an increasingly accepted alternative to other beverages, like carbonated drinks, preservative infused juices, energy drinks, and others, as it is rich in proteins and vitamins. It serves as a healthy and tasty option, as it comes in innovative flavors, not only for kids and teenagers but also for the older generations who do not like the taste of plain milk and suffer from calcium deficiency. In order to widen their consumer base, companies are bringing about innovation in flavored milk by the increased focus on flavors, indulgence, and packaging renovations, which appeal to adults. Further, with the implementation of increased taxes and government regulations on sugary drinks to prevent diseases, flavored milk is becoming the new favorite of beverage producers, as it is exempted from this category, owing to its greater nutritional value. Brands that can successfully lower the sugar-level in flavored milk, without compromising on the drink’s nutritional and taste properties, are expected to be embraced by all age groups.

Middle East and Africa Remain the Fastest Growing Markets

The chocolate milk market is facing stiff competition from the protein shakes and non-dairy drinks market, globally. Constant marketing efforts from the dairy industry have led to adults and athletes opting for chocolate milk who have previously dismissed chocolate milk as a drink for children. Factors expected to drive the demand are increasing consumer disposable income and increase in consumer awareness regarding health benefits of the flavored dairy products, such as chocolate milk, in South Africa. The increasing number of new product launches across the country is one of the key drivers in the market. Key market players across the country are increasingly focusing on increasing the number of product launches, which is likely to strengthen their position in the market. The most popular flavors under the flavored milk category in Saudi Arabia are banana, chocolate, and strawberry. These flavors are popular among the younger generation, and manufacturers are launching specific flavored milk marketed toward children.

Competitive Landscape

The chocolate milk market is fragmented and comprises regional/local players, as well as international competitors. The market is dominated by players, like Arla Foods, Danone, and Nestle SA. The leading players in the chocolate milk market enjoy a dominant presence, worldwide. These players focus on leveraging opportunities posed by emerging markets to expand their product portfolio, so that they can cater to the requirements for milk, especially during breakfast and as a healthy drinking snacking habit. Moreover, these companies adopted innovation and partnerships as their key strategies to increase their geographical presence and customer base. For instance:
  • In January 2017, Nestle altered the sugar level and revamped its chocolate drink. This is a market strategy to fulfill the consumer's demand for low-sugar chocolate drinks.
