COVID-19 Market Insights:

Taking into consideration the effect of COVID-19 on Europe and the world, the processed cheese market is taking necessary steps to respond to the situation. The processed cheese market is streamlining its business procedures and operating protocols to align production, shipping and logistics activities with this emergency.

In 2020, the market demand is expected to fall by almost 1/3rd during the first two quarters, owing to shut down of cheese processing plants and decreasing demand from foodservice and retail. Under the optimistic scenario, the market is expected to recover soon from the third quarter onwards, owing to the sudden reopening of foodservices operation.

However, under the probabilistic scenario, sluggishness in growth is set to prevail up to the third quarter. Under the pessimistic scenario, the market will be impacted in all four quarters. However, growth is expected to rebound once the pandemic abates, albeit slowly as production of raw-materials needs to resume.

Analyst’s Viewpoint:

Although processed cheese is a small part of total cheese production worldwide, rising fast-food consumption has played a major role in increasing demand for processed cheese and will continue in the near future. A major factor augmenting the demand for processed cheese is the economic positioning of processed cheese. Being affordable, more often than not, consumers choose processed cheese as the go-to cheese product for home cooking purposes.
