Dairy products in Kuwait: Analysis of Dairy and other related Milk products with consumption and production trends (2016 - 2021)

Purchase Report

The growth in Kuwait's dairy industry will be driven by the rising per capita milk consumption, increasing population, and demand for protein rich food. For white milk, the powdered sector continues to lose ground against long-life products, even when there were no major product innovations. The dairy market in Kuwait is experiencing a positive growth and is expected to expand at a CAGR of X% over the period of forecast.

Rapid westernization and rising health awareness driving the market for dairy products

Population growth, altering consumption patterns, and continual modernization of the food value chain are some of the key drivers that are aiding the growth of the dairy industry. Rising health awareness and an evolving taste for a westernized diet, primarily by the expatriate population, are stirring a change in the region’s dietary habits. These factors are creating a market for international and organic foods that also have a positive effect on the growth of the dairy industry.

It is noteworthy that among the GCC nations, consumers in Kuwait spend the most on dairy products.

The high potential of the dairy industry in Kuwait is being tapped by using advanced technologies

Although Kuwait is situated in a section of one of the driest and least hospitable deserts on earth, the success of the dairy industry in the region can be attributed to the application of technology. At typical desert temperatures (as high as 50 degrees Celsius), milk production would usually plunge, the yield would spoil quickly, and dangerous bacteria would form. However, by using technology that would help sustain ambient temperatures and computers to monitor the humidity and temperatures in the setup, this obstacle is overcome. Kuwait is one of the regions where the milking process is completely computerized in accordance with the latest farm technologies and the cows are fed by automatic foragers that feed them within 5 minutes.
