Drivers, restraints, and opportunities
Trend of vegan diet, diversity in plant-based beverages, and prevalence of lactose intolerance and milk allergy drive the growth of the global oat milk market. However, discrimination against plant milk via labeling and tax regulations restrain the market growth. On the other hand, prominence of novel functional beverages and untapped potential from the developing countries present new opportunities in the coming years.
The demand for oat milk increased during the Covid-19 pandemic due to inclination of consumers toward consolidating their immune systems. The production activities have been hampered as factories have been closed due to lockdown.
Despite the increase in demand, there was a huge supply-demand gap due to lockdown measures implemented by governments of many countries. The supply chain was disrupted. Online platforms were banned from delivering goods and supermarkets were closed during the lockdown period.
With governments lifting off lockdown restrictions, the production activities have been resumed, the supply chain has been restored, and supermarket stores have been opened. The supply-demand gap would narrow down.
