Key Market Trends
Frozen Yogurt Remains the Fastest Growing Segment

Increase in cases of obesity in North America, particularly in the U.S and increased awareness among individuals regarding weight management through yogurt consumption are factors expected to help the market grow. The increased health consciousness among consumers has encouraged them to opt for yogurt, as it has various health benefits such as improved digestion, enhanced immune function, and a reduced risk of several diseases, including obesity. Moreover, there are options for low-fat yogurt and reduced fat yogurt. A US Census Bureau statistic has shown that 37.05 million Americans consumed regular frozen yogurt in 2018, which is higher as compared to its low-fat and reduced-fat variants. According to Cargill, Inc., this strong demand in whole-milk and full-fat yogurt is prevalent as a result of more consumers understanding the benefits of fats in foods.

Innovation in Packaging Trends Driving the Market

Attractive packaging is said to be one of the driving factors for the market. Yogurt is widely available across retail shelves in North America and therefore, packaging plays a crucial role in its sales. In the United States, yogurt is available in packaging of cups, tubs, drinks, and tubes, among which, yogurt sold in cups were found to be the most sold category in 2017, followed by yogurt sold in tubes. This is majorly due to the increasing demand for ready-to-eat food and beverages. Busy lifestyles encourage the use of ready-to-eat on-the-go snacks, and thus cup yogurt is widely sold across the region.
