Market Outlook:

Cheese substitutes are generally defined as the products made by combining individual constituents, comprising non-dairy proteins and fats, to create a cheese-like product to meet the particular requirements. Cheese substitutes are being used increasingly due to the cost-effectiveness, attributed to the easiness of their production and replacement of specific milk ingredients by cheaper vegetable products. Increasing sales of cheese substitutes is closely linked to the developments in the convenience food sector, where the sales is extended, and the cut down in costs. The ever-increasing demand for foods which contains less fat, calories, and cholesterol is expected to initiate a significant growth in the cheese substitutes market.

Furthermore, with growing concerns over the adverse effects of dairy and animal welfare, and the mounting environmental concerns linked with dairy product consumption, an inclination towards cheese substitutes is expected in more and more consumers.

Cheese Substitutes, an Emerging Ingredient in Processed Food Products:

The acceptance of cheese substitutes with foodservice and consumers is increased immensely owing to many potential benefits. Owing to the tremendous rise in the consumption of pizza pie and the fact that conventional cheese is amongst the most expensive components of a pizza pie, attention has focused on the expansion of cheese substitutes. Also, the dairy industry is continuously providing  choices for foodservice providers. Despite this, vegetable proteins have provided alternative solutions and have made significant gains in several application areas that have been a traditional forte for casein. In the long run, environmental concerns and reductions in institutional subsidies will further reduce the consumption of milk proteins, which will present an opportunity for the cheese substitute players to enhance their market position and consequently assisting the market growth.

Opportunities for Market Participants in Cheese Substitutes Market:

Cheese substitutes have not made much impact on the retail business owing to several reasons. The producers are still faced against quality issues. The flavoring system is still insufficient. Also, there is a psychological resistance to change on the part of the consumers. The use of cheese substitutes is confined due to their unnatural image even though they could be notionally equal and cheaper. The primary role of cheese substitutes at present is in the cost-cutting application of pizza makers. However, with persistent development of the cheese substitutes and, in particular, their flavoring systems, including lower costs, dietary considerations and the inevitable shift to more transparent product labeling, cheese substitutes could concrete their way into the retail business.

Furthermore, the production of cheese substitutes has taken a hike in the last decade. In the United States, more than 200 manufacturers have entered the market, as opportunities lie there, due to growing demand from consumers. As the competition and saturation in the cheese substitutes market is increasing, companies are gradually following the trend of innovating new forms of cheese substitutes to stay ahead in the market.
