Coffee Creamer Production

The Coffee Creamer Production industry exhibits a high level of market share concentration, with the four largest players, Danone SA, TreeHouse Foods Inc., Nestle SA and Dean Foods Co., dominating the industry. Over the five years to 2019, these operators have held a firm grip on their industry position through various business combinations. Strong branding and customer loyalty result in relatively competitive and moderately concentrated industry.

Key brands drive revenue growth

· The largest industry operators own the most popular and well-known creamer brands, resulting in relatively steady consumer demand due to substantial brand loyalty. Danone SA, the industry’s largest player, has some of the most popular brands in its catalog, including Land O Lakes, Almond Joy and Hershey’s. Nestle SA, the third-largest industry operator, similarly owns popular brands, including Coffee-mate.

Acquisitions boost profit

· Over the five years to 2019, large industry operators have further secured their status by completing small and large mergers and acquisitions. Most notable, Danone SA Acquired WhiteWave Foods in 2017. At the time of the merger, WhiteWave was the largest producer of coffee creamer in the US. As a result, Danone SA’s market share was significantly boosted and its industry status was secured further.

Price point and branding drive internal competition
· The Coffee Creamer Production industry is highly competitive, competing internally on price, branding and innovation. Despite the relatively staple nature of coffee creamer, pricing forms an important basis of competition. The large number of homogeneous products gives consumers the luxury of choice, forcing producers to establish a price ceiling. This is particularly the case for liquid creamer, where there is little difference between branded and private-label products.

This industry manufactures dairy and nondairy coffee creamers in powdered and liquid form. The production of other products, such as half and half, whipping cream, ice cream mix, milk or milk substitutes, sour cream, cheese or powdered beverages, is excluded from this industry.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
