Coconut Milk Market to Hit USD 2,172.49 Million in 2028; Rising Adoption of Vegan Diet and Prevalence of Lactose Intolerance to Aid Growth, Says Fortune Business Insights™

Pune, India, June 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global coconut milk market is set to gain traction from the increasing awareness among consumers about the health benefits associated with vegan diet. The Plant Based Foods Association published its data in 2020 mentioning that the sales of plant-based milk surged by 5% the same year in the U.S. Companies are also grabbing this opportunity to launch their products in the market. As per a report by Fortune Business Insights™, titled, “Coconut Milk Market, 2021-2028,” the market stood at USD 919.57 million in 2020. It is projected to grow from USD 1,009.07 million in 2021 to USD 2,172.49 million in 2028 at a CAGR of 11.58% in the forecast period.

COVID-19 Pandemic: Disturbances in Raw Material Transportation to Hinder Growth

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the market severely. Lockdown norms implemented by renowned regulatory bodies worldwide have resulted in the disruption in raw material transportation and high prices. Coconut and associated product manufacturers are therefore unable to continue their manufacturing processes. These factors are set to decline the demand for this type of milk amid the pandemic.

Drivers & Restraints:

Increasing Incorporation in Bakery and Confectionery Items to Bolster Growth

Consumers nowadays are inclining rapidly towards plant-based products as they are considered to be healthier and safer, compared to animal-originated products. The Vegan Society, for instance, declared that in Europe, the U.K. is showcasing an exponential growth in its plant-based milk sector. In 2019, it stood at USD 320.6 million in the overall European market. At the same time, several people are practicing vegan diets worldwide. This is encouraging numerous companies to incorporate plant-based milk in a wide range of confectionery and bakery items. In February 2021, the Scottish Government announced that it would soon include plant-based milk alternatives on a government-funded early learning milk scheme and nursery. Additionally, the surging prevalence of lactose intolerance has compelled people to opt for coconut milk.

However, coconut farming depends mainly on climatic conditions. As the amount of greenhouse gas emissions is increasing, the global climatic conditions are also changing at a fast pace. Therefore, the frequent harsh weather conditions may hamper the coconut milk market growth in the near future.
