This has prompted market players to invest in product innovations and experimentation with different flavors, thereby accelerating market growth.

Moreover, declining dairy production due to reduced agricultural activity amid social distancing protocols have generated a demand-supply gap in mainstream dairy products, clearing the pathway for plant-based yogurt manufacturers to establish their supremacy in the yogurt market. Additionally, prevalence of lactose intolerance amongst consumers is encouraging higher consumption of plant-based yogurts.

“Consumer preferences for conventional flavors is eroding at a rapid pace. Their willingness to experiment with different flavor combinations have generated a dynamic pattern in the plant-based yogurt market, inspiring innovations among market players to satiate these sensory experiences,” concludes a leading FMI analyst.
