The Asia-Pacific ice cream market is expected to grow at a CAGR of X.X% during the forecast period to reach a value of USD XX million by 2022. China is the world’s largest ice cream market, having moved ahead of the United States. Rising disposable incomes, coupled with a shift in consumer preferences, drive the growth of this market. In 2014, the ice cream market in China was valued at USD 11.4 billion. The demand for artisanal ice creams is gradually increasing in the region. South Korea invented an ice cream based hangover cure called Gyeondyo-bar, which translates as “hang in there”.
Indulgence and an increase in urbanization drive the growth of this market. A rise in the demand for ice cream products from consumers above 50 years is another factor that also contributes to the growth. However, health concerns and infrastructure and supply chain issues pose a threat to the market. People suffering from lactose intolerance cannot eat ice creams, thus creating an opportunity for vendors to introduce lactose-free ice creams. The developing countries of the region would experience a high CAGR during the forecast period.
