The Europe 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. The ice cream market in Germany was valued at EUR 1.3 billion in 2014. The demand for artisanal ice creams is growing rapidly in the region. Non-dairy ice creams are also gaining popularity in this region due to the increasing health consciousness among the people. Fish cone ice creams are the latest trend in Europe.
Indulgence and the increasing consumer preference for ice cream as a leisure product drive the growth of this market and new innovative flavors, offered by companies, further act as a catalyst for demand generation. Also, private labeling reduces the price of ice creams and increases the demand, as a result. A rise in the demand for ice cream products, from consumers above 50 years, is another factor that contributes to the growth. However, health concerns pose a threat to this market. Hence, ice cream manufacturers have introduced lactose-free ice creams, especially to cater to people suffering from lactose intolerance.
The Europe ice cream market is segmented on the basis of product shape, sale and geography. By shape the market is segmented into sticks, buckets, sundae, floats and frozen novelties. By sales, the market is discussed for impulsive ice cream, take-home ice cream and artisanal ice cream.

The market for ice creams is highly fragmented, due to the presence of many large and small scale vendors.
