Due in part to the rising popularity of plant-based beverages, consumers are drinking more than ever. As consumers look for the ideal balance of nutrition and flavour, plant-based ready-to-drink beverages are becoming more and more popular. Customers who cannot tolerate dairy like plant-based beverages because they are dairy-free.

These pre-made drinks are low in fat and have minuscule to no cholesterol content, which helps people lose weight and maintain their weight. Since they are rich in protein, minerals, and vitamins, consumers frequently choose them.


Even if plant-based milk is gaining popularity, many customers’ ignorance about and unfamiliarity with plant-based goods is in part preventing the market from expanding. Because consumers rely largely on milk to get key nutrients, plant-based milk products are seen negatively by consumers.

Additionally, a crucial factor to take into account is that plant-based milk has a different flavour from cow milk. Additionally, sales of the product are being hampered by the high price of plant-based milk consumables. Because there are fewer resources available and processing expenses are higher, plant-derived milk is typically more expensive. In some nations, value-added taxes are applied to plant-based milk products, increasing the cost of the item.

Market Trends

Demand for plant-based milk is rising due to veganism globally. According to a study by Vegan Life Magazine and the Vegan Society that involved almost a billion people in Europe.

The number of vegans in the UK has increased by 300 percent in the previous ten years to at least 542,000, with 42% of persons between the ages of 15 and 34 being vegan. In addition, between 2018 and 2020, there were 6% more vegan consumers in the United States. A growth potential is to increase consumer demand for more superior and delicious vegan products.
