Demand for dairy products in China is witnessing high growth on account of increasing demand by the consumers. Despite the slowdown in the Chinese economy, there has been persistent growth in the import of milk or milk products (dairy products).
Greater availability of supermarkets, improving lifestyle, new product development and rising penetration of refrigerators in rural and urban areas has positively impacted the demand for dairy products in the country. Additionally, increasing consumer awareness of the health benefits of consuming calcium has spurred up the demand for the dairy products in the region. Aging population in China is another factor contributing to the growing demand for more natural and calcium-rich products. Whereas, the recent innovation in retail marketing channels has also facilitated the rapid expansion of the Chinese dairy market.
As dairy products are easily susceptible to contamination on prolonged exposure to the atmosphere, they can get soiled, making it unfit for human consumption. To satisfy the needs of the consumers who are becoming more health-conscious, the dairy product manufacturers are slowly changing their existing product packaging portfolio. They are now offering a range of products which are in line with the consumer expectations. One of the major factors which is contributing to this trend is the development of highly efficient packaging solutions for dairy products. The initiatives which have been taken by the packaging companies in terms of innovations and offerings has greatly contributed to the dairy products market growth.
The market for China dairy packaging is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.46% over the forecast period. The gains are mainly driven by the small containers and food eaten/taken away for personal consumption. Pouches and bottles are estimated to gain maximum traction over the next five years.
Moreover, the growing usage of dairy products such as cheese among children and butter and yogurt in food and restaurants chains will also drive the dairy product packaging industry. Different sizes and formats of packaging with longer shelf life are the other major factors that will contribute to dairy packaging market growth in China.
Focus on detrimental effects of packaging on the environment has created the need for sustainable packaging solutions. Government policies and consumer awareness have impacted the demand for the usage of recycled materials for packaging solutions. To reduce energy cost without affecting the flexibility of machinery and design of the products, is one of the key impediments faced by the Chinese dairy packaging solution manufacturers.
Growing demand for multi-layer and tetra packaging along with blow-molded HDPE bottles in the region will open new gateway of opportunities for the market players.
