The dairy cream market is forecast to register a CAGR of 4.11% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

The COVID-19 outbreak caused some disruptions in the dairy industry. Since hotels, restaurants, and bakeries were closed, there was a shift away from wholesale foodservice sectors. Some milk processors were reporting difficulty, including drivers, to transport milk from farms amid covid fears. Despite these setbacks, the demand for dairy products increased for a number of reasons, including rising interest in home baking, which resulted in increasing demand for dairy products such as milk, butter, and cream in retail sales. Another reason driving up demand for liquid milk is the growing number of people working from home, which has increased the demand for milk for teas and coffees.

The high production costs and health consciousness leading to low-fat consumption are found to be obstacles for the industry. Innovative product development with low trans-fat and organic cream products is expected to be further growth opportunities in this industry.

Increasing product launches with innovative ideas such as flavored, low-calorie, and low-fat creams are expected to accelerate the growth of the market. Additionally, wide applications of dairy cream, ranging from bakery to confectionery, increase the market size.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand for Low-fat Cream Products

Factors, such as increasing government-run health and wellness campaigns, designed to combat obesity and related problems (diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and high cholesterol), are encouraging consumers to purchase healthier products such as low-fat dairy ream. Owing to the consumers’ preference for functional/organic products, the companies entering this market are expected to witness a high potential. Moreover, there is a rise in demand for fortified yogurt. For instance, Schulz organic dairy offers pure dairy cream, which is increasingly being appreciated by Australian Consumers. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, in 2020, the total consumption of low-fat ice creams in the United States amounted to 2.21 billion pounds as compared to 2.12 billion pounds in 2017.

Gulf Cooperation Council Countries to Witness Steady Growth

Companies like Arla Foods are also investing in production facilities and implementing expansion strategies to expand their dairy production facilities. Arla Foods is also developing its sales and distribution in Lebanon, Qatar, and Kuwait to expand its dairy capacity in such countries. Such partnerships play a prominent role in dairy companies’ development, maintaining their quality of performance and competitiveness in the market. Thus, the increasing number of strategic initiatives, especially partnerships and alliances between companies to revolutionize the dairy market in Kuwait, is, in turn, boosting the market’s growth in the country.
