Dairy ingredients are made from milk and find application in chocolates, bakery products, ice creams, sports foods, prepared food products, and ready-to-eat food products, to name a few. Dairy ingredients are basically used for flavor and texture enhancement, offering viscosity, gel formation, emulsification, and fat-holding properties for the particular food and beverage product. Dairy ingredient types include milk, whey, and permeate.

Milk is an essential component of the human diet and has thus gained wide acceptance among consumers. Milk is dried and preserved in the form of powder owing to its benefits of having an increased shelf life and low moisture content, which makes it known as the dried form of milk. Other types of milk-derived dairy ingredients include casein and caseinate, milk protein concentrate, milk protein isolate, and others.

Whey ingredients are classified as whey protein isolate, whey protein concentrates, and others. Different types of dairy ingredients are used in the final product depending on the application.

International and domestic trade barriers have resulted in a complex system for the dairy industry worldwide in combination with price constraints in some of the major dairy markets, such as the European Union, the United States, Japan, and Canada.

As compared to all these barriers, the dairy industry offers wide potential, especially in the Asia Pacific, where factors such as urbanization, income growth, government plans and policies supporting the dairy industry, and the inclination of consumers toward milk and milk products are bolstering the dairy ingredients market growth.

The growing dairy industry is thus supporting the demand for dairy ingredients, especially in dairy food products, globally. However, price is a key concern among dairy ingredient manufacturers, which hinders overall dairy ingredient market growth.

Globally, the dairy ingredients market in Asia-Pacific is expected to be the largest in terms of value, followed by Europe and North America. Asia Pacific is further anticipated to exhibit the fastest CAGR during the forecast period, which is attributed to the growing food and beverage industries in China and India, which are leading to increased demand for dairy ingredients and new product launches catering to dairy food products, especially in China and India.

However, demand for dairy ingredients is expected to record moderate growth in Latin America, owing to increased consumption along with growing imports and exports of milk in Brazil, thereby leading to subsequent demand for dairy ingredients in the region.

The global dairy ingredients market is expected to be valued at US$ 48.6 billion by the end of 2016 and to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% between 2016 and 2023.
