Coconut Milk Market to Cross USD 1.78 Billion by 2028 Thanks to Rising Veganism and Growing Lactose Intolerant Population

The coconut milk market was worth USD 1 billion in 2021 and is estimated to cross USD 1.78 billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.58% during the forecast period (2022-2028).

Westford USA, Jan. 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The coconut milk market is anticipated to expand due to growing consumer concerns about consuming conventional dairy-based food and beverage items and a rise in consumer preferences for vegan diets. Another factor contributing to the increase in coconut milk consumption is the demand for palatable, healthy beverages with low-calorie counts. Additionally, the advent of food products made from coconuts shows a shift in consumer preferences from animal-based products to plant-based products, with coconut-based goods maintaining a significant market share.

Vegans, vegetarians, and people with dairy allergies or intolerances all enjoy coconut milk and cream. Due to their inherent sweetness and smoothness, they are also widely used in beverages and sauces. Additionally, it is used to make various meals, including sauces, doughnuts, ice cream, cakes, smoothies, and shakes. Active and health-conscious consumers now prefer natural energy sources over overly caffeinated and sugar-based ones. Coconut milk contains few calories and low carbohydrate levels.

According to SkyQuest’s global study, lactose malabsorption affects approximately 68% of the world’s population, and out of this, up to 90% of East Asians are lactose intolerant. The rising prevalence of lactose intolerance in the population is increasing the demand for plant-based protein, thereby propelling demand for the coconut milk market. 

Coconut Milk Powder Segment to Capture Dominant Market Share on account of Rising Global Product Sales

As per SkyQuest’s segment analysis, the coconut milk powder segment is the highest contributor, with a 71% market share, and is anticipated to register a CAGR of 17.3% from 2022 to 2028. Cakes, doughnuts, ice cream, smoothies, shakes, and sauces can all be made with coconut milk powder. The scope of the segment is expected to increase in the near future due to growing demand for vegan ice cream and cakes as dessert options in dine-out hotels and Quick Service Restaurants (QSRs). As one of the essential potential ingredients for preparing authentic food, coconut milk powder is predicted to gain popularity. In addition, introducing coconuts from organic sources is likely to provide market participants with significant growth potential over the projection period.

India, Indonesia, Japan, and China are important revenue-generating countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Therefore, the government emphasizes bolstering the coconut business and its use in various sectors because it occupies a prominent place in the region. More than 85% of customers in Japan are lactose intolerant; however, there is a very high demand for ice cream, yogurt, and other dairy products among the locals. As a result, the country’s food manufacturing industries face a strong demand for dairy-alternative components such as coconut cream and milk.
