Global Milk Powder Market

Milk powder is produced by dehydration of milk and stored without substantial loss of quality due to a low water activity that hampers microbial metabolism, preferably for a significant amount of time. It is obtained mainly by roller drying and spray drying methods and used as an ingredient for a wide range of applications such as confectionaries, infant formulas, bakeries, and nutritional foods. Due to the presence of low moisture content powdered milk has a longer shelf-life and can be stored at ambient temperatures as well as transported to remote locations without proper cold chain infrastructure. The changes in eating habits and busy lifestyle, high nutritional value and growth of the retail networks in emerging economies are the few factors responsible for the growth of the market over the forecast period.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the market has been facing a decline in consumption of dairy products because of the temporary shutdown of hotels, restaurants and roadside tea stalls, etc.

Moreover, the increase in the use of milk powder in infant foods and the presence of several nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin B12, thiamin, and high amounts of protein, driving the growth of this market. Furthermore, the introduction of innovative products and other strategic alliances by the various market players will create a lucrative demand for this market. For instance, as per the company’s news release in February 2020, Danone launched new sachet packaging for its Aptamil and Cow& Gate powder baby milk ranges in the UK. It includes the boxes of 14 ready-to-mix, single-serve sachets across all three stages of baby feeding for both brands: first infant milk (from birth), follow on milk (age 6-12 months) and growing up milk (age 1-2 years). However, the presence of additive and special diet trends is the major factor restraining the growth of the global Milk Powder market during the forecast period.
