The demand for clean label products is increasing rapidly owing to significant rise in awareness of healthy eating. Clean label dairy products do not contain additives, artificial flavor enhancers, dyes or artificial preservatives.

For instance, a USA based yogurt brand Siggi’s Dairy introduced clean label yogurt pouches for children.

The outbreak of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has acted as a massive restraint on the ice cream and frozen dessert manufacturing market in 2020 as supply chains were disrupted due to trade restrictions and consumption declined due to lockdowns imposed by governments globally. COVID 19 is an infectious disease with flu-like symptoms including fever, cough, and difficulty in breathing. The virus was first identified in 2019 in Wuhan, Hubei province of the People’s Republic of China and spread globally including Western Europe, North America and Asia. Food and beverage manufacturers depend on supply of raw materials from domestic and international suppliers. As many governments restricted the movement of goods across countries and locally, manufacturers had to halt production due to lack of raw materials. Also, restrictions on trade of non-essential goods and fear of contamination through manufacturing facilities contributed to the decline. The outbreak is expected to continue to have a negative impact on businesses throughout 2020 and into 2021. However, it is expected that the ice cream and frozen dessert manufacturing market will recover from the shock across the forecast period as it is a ’black swan’ event and not related to ongoing or fundamental weaknesses in the market or the global economy.

World population is growing and is expected to reach 10 billion by 2050. Increase in population creates more demand for food. According to “The Agricultural Outlook” by the OECD and FAO, global cereal production was projected to increase by 13% by 2027. Trade volumes will have to increase in order to meet increased population. Therefore, companies in this market are expected to benefit from rising demand for food and beverage products including ice cream and frozen dessert due to rising population, during the forecast period.
