Key Market Issues

Dairy products distribution in the US follows a similar pattern to overall retail packaged food distribution with a higher market share for Hypermarkets and Supermarkets totaling 70%. It suggests manufacturers' have less bargaining power with retailers.

Growing consumer confidence, as a result of positive employment numbers and a low rate of inflation, will drive positive growth for the Foodservice and Restaurant industry in the US.

Growing concern for healthy lifestyles among the younger generation, as well as an aging population, has resulted in the growth of reduced fat products and nutritional products in the Dairy Food market.

Dairy products are used as ingredients in recipes and in foods such as pizza, pasta, and bakery products. As the weak economy encourages consumers to eat in more often, demand for packaged ingredients for these meals will increase.

Men account for 51.4% of the Dairy Food sector by volume. However, older, affluent, and time rich consumers are the largest consumer groups in both male and female markets for Dairy Food products.

Key Highlights

Analysis of the change in the Dairy Food sector between 2007 and 2017 highlights a number of clear winners and losers. This analysis focuses on market shares; large categories posting low growth such as Milk will lose market share to processed products such as Cheese and Yogurt, who have a higher growth rate.

Milk consumption in the US has declined over the last decade due to the declining share of children in the total population and increased competition from energy drinks and fast growing non-dairy alternatives such as soymilk and almond milk.

Advanced packaging technology for Dairy products has contributed not only to extended shelf-life of dairy products, but also has eased supply chain pressures, enabling producers to ship products over greater distances. Additionally, it has led to greater product differentiation and line extensions.

Weak economic conditions in the US have not only reinforced demand for private label brands, but have also led to increased innovation and new product launches within the private label category. While Milk and Cheese are the two most sold private label Dairy Food products, penetration is lowest in the Yogurt category.
