Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand for Vegan Yogurt

Vegetarian food has always been in demand in the Asia-Pacific region, and the trend for specific vegetarian foods, like meat and dairy alternatives, is increasing. Asian consumers are interested in no-meat and non-dairy products, even if they are not vegetarians. About half of the Indonesian population and about two-third of the Indian population are interested in healthier diets. Chinese consumers are more health conscious than Indonesians and Indians. In Japan, the demand for plant-based yogurt witnessed a rapid growth in 2017, due to a continued strong interest in its health benefits, among the consumers, across different age groups.


China is the Largest Producer of Yogurt in the Asia-Pacific Region

In China, yogurt has become more popular than milk, because of its health benefits. The product has become popular because it is seen as a slimming agent, and hence, it has overtaken the sales of milk. Among all the dairy products, yogurt and cheese are the most healthy and nutritious ones, as they help improve immunity and are good for kids. The consumers' willingness to pay depends on whether the product is specifically designed to reduce weight, like low-fat yogurt. Chinese consumers tend to buy take-away products while visiting their friends, during the spring festival. Packaging and marketing techniques are not so important in this respect.

Competitive Landscape

Many players, like Chobani LLC, Nestle, FAGE International SA, and ZOTT SE & Co., among others, are some of the prominent players in the Asia-Pacific market. The demand for Greek yogurt is expected to increase over the next few years, because of the increased preference for new products with a variety of flavors, such as blueberry, vanilla, honey, and chocolate, along with super-foods. Health claims, like higher protein content and relatively lower fat and sugar contents, as compared to conventional yogurt, have enhanced the popularity of Greek yogurt. This variety of yogurt is manufactured by the repeated straining of regular yogurt, until most of the lactose (sugar) is eliminated.
