Consumer Awareness & Adoption of Veganism to Drive Market Growth of Soy Milk: Persistence Market Research Study

Published On : Dec 06, 2021

According to the latest study by Persistence Market Research, the global soy milk market is predicted to surge at 9.1% CAGR and reach a valuation of US$ 11.8 Bn by 2031.

Plant-based milk such as soy milk, almond milk, oat milk, rice milk, and others are gaining rapid traction among foodservice providers owing to increasing consumer demand for plant-based milk in restaurants and cafes. Soy milk products are housed in special refrigerated units, which significantly increases their shelf life as compared to traditional milk.

  • For instance, The Progressive Food Company, based in the U.K., offers single-serve portions of soy milk as an alternative for cow milk to its customers operating in the foodservice industry.

Soy milk is also regarded as one of the most effective baking milk. Soy milk has a mild flavor that remains unnoticed in bread, muffins, cakes, and other baked products. It also enhances the finished product's structure and texture.

The trend of veganism is gaining popularity owing to three core reasons. Potential health benefits, rise in awareness regarding animal rights, and environmental protection are the core reasons causing the shift of consumers toward veganism. This increasing acceptance of veganism by consumers has been seen in cities, suburbs, and rural areas, alike. Availability of vegan alternatives for dairy-based milk has also driven the rise in acceptance of plant-based milk products.

This impressive worldwide increase in the interest in veganism has led to the adoption of a plant-based way of living. The soy milk market is anticipated to spur over the forecast period owing to this increasing acceptance of veganism.
