In established markets such as North America and Europe, veganism is a popular trend, with more and more people joining in as time goes by. This section of the population consumes only plant-based products. This trend is also affecting emerging markets such as South Asia and East Asia. This increasing popularity of veganism is expected to bolster the growth of the plant-based creamer market over the coming years.

The ongoing trend of low-fat non-dairy products such as milk, yogurt, and cream is enabling the manufacturers of plant-based creamers to introduce plant-based creamer products that are low in fat, non-GMO, and lactose-free.

Variations in Flavor, Taste, and Texture Aiding Demand Growth

Taste and texture are what determines the success of meat and dairy alternatives.

Consumers seek products with good taste, texture, and flavors with healthy ingredients. These factors will create huge opportunities for the Europe and APAC plant-based creamer markets.

Technological Advances in Food Equipment Shaping Industry

There have been many advancements in recent years in food equipment, which have changed the dynamics of the food processing industry in terms of technology, trends, and new developments. Advanced technological developments have brought about a huge change in the plant-based creamer market as well. 

A few years ago, plant-based creamers were a concept that could only be imagined. But, due to spray drying and hydrogenation techniques, a creamer without milk content was made possible. Additionally, production costs of manufacturing plant-based creamers were higher a few years ago. These costs have reduced in recent years due to various advancements, thus increasing the prospects of manufacturers in the plant-based creamer market space.

  • Nestlé’s Coffee-Mate brand launched a new product called Natural Bliss. This product is made from plant-based milk, and it is witnessing high sales. Customers have shown a positive response to this product, especially in the Americas.

North America and Europe Collectively Dominate Market; Plant-based food Consumption Trend Increasing in Asia Pacific

The global plant-based creamer market is mainly dominated by two regions - Europe and North America, which together account for more than 60% of the market share. These two regions are also the largest plant-based creamer producing regions with the highest number of plant-based creamer manufacturers as well as consumers.

Anticipated COVID-19 Impact on Plant-based Creamer Market

The ongoing health crisis around COVID-19 has affected all walks of life. As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads across the world, most industries, along with the agriculture and food and beverage industry supply chain is stepping up to keep employees and consumers safe, while still providing vital equipment, services, commodities, and food.

Production by key manufacturers of plant-based creamers has either reduced or stopped, as many countries have imposed total lockdowns. To control the widespread of coronavirus, many economies have declared a national emergency, due to which, the transportation system has collapsed. Manufacturers of plant-based creamers are facing numerous challenges, right from the procurement of raw material, processing of ingredients due to the shortage of labor, transport, and the distribution of the final product. 

The foodservice and HoReCa industry is the second-largest consumer of plant-based creamers across the globe, which has been bit badly by the pandemic. Europe has the largest number of foodservice and HoReCa outlets, followed by North America. Both these regions are suffering from the spread of COVID-19. The tourism sector has been destroyed over the last few months across the world. These factors have negatively impacted the growth of the foodservice and food & beverage industry, and, in turn, has widely impacted the growth of the plant-based creamer market. 

The world is proceeding toward a global recession, but the premium consumer class will always have spending power to purchase products. The pricing of plant-based creamers may be impacted shortly due to food inflation. These factors are expected to leave an impact on the growth of the global plant-based creamer market for at least the next couple of quarters.
