Shifting Preference for Essential Commodities to Decelerate Non-Dairy Toppings Market Growth, Finds Fact.MR

by Team Fact.MR

Over the past year, customers who prefer lactose-free foods have encountered an increasing preference for non-dairy food products. However, the market is currently facing a significant hit in demand due to the impact of COVID-19. In many regions like North America and Europe, masses are expected to shift their preference to essential commodities which will directly affect the market demand for non-dairy toppings. However, players are expected to offer products through multiple promotional strategies like branding, rebranding and discounts. This will allow companies to clear out stock of processed food products and will lead to recovery in demand for non-dairy toppings.

Non-Dairy Toppings to Witness Blue Skies owing to Burgeoning Demand from North America and Europe

The global non-dairy toppings market is anticipated to reach a valuation of over US$ 2.5 billion, with growth pegged at over 7.5%. This significant growth rate can be largely attributed to the shifts in consumer preference in recent years, including the increasing acceptance of dietary choices such as veganism, and the transition from traditional dairy products in Europe and North America.

In North America and Europe the non-dairy toppings market is expected to see a dip in sales by nearly 1/3rd in first two quarters as compared to the similar time duration in 2019. However, the demand for confectionary products is expected to stabilize by third quarter owing to several festivities in countries like United States, India, Brazil, China and many others.

Moderately Fragmented Market Structure with Players Relying on Vertical Integration

The global non-dairy toppings market is partially fragmented where 3/5th of the market share is accounted for by regional and domestic market players. Emerging players hold nearly 50% of the market share and are following a strategy of launching new products and expanding facilities. However, top players hold 30% of the market share but are accountable for nearly 70% of the revenue generated from non-dairy topping market. To survive the competition from the emerging players, vertical market acquisition strategy is adopted by the top level players to retain their market share.
