Global Analog Cheese Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Analog cheese is a type of cheese that has been made using traditional methods and without the use of modern equipment or chemicals. Analog cheese is important because it helps to preserve the traditions and techniques of cheesemaking, and it also has a unique flavor that can't be replicated by modern methods.

Soy Cheese:

Soy cheese is a type of food product, which is produced from soybean. It contains the same amount of protein as compared to dairy products like milk and yogurt. Soy cheese has a longer shelf life than regular analogs and also provides an additional health benefit in terms of it being low in calories & fats & high in proteins.

The market for soy-based cheese was estimated at USD 1,10 billion in 2015.

Cashew Cheese:

Cashew cheese is a vegan alternative to dairy products such as cream cheese, yogurt, and others. It has a consistency similar to that of regular cheese and takes on the flavor of other ingredients used in its preparation. Cashew based analogs are widely used in foods such as burgers, sandwiches, pizza toppings, etc.

Application Insights:

The catering application segment accounted for the largest share of over 60% in 2017. The analog cheese is widely used in catering services as it melts easily and provides a better texture to the food items. Moreover, increasing number of corporate events and social gatherings are driving the demand for various types of cheese including cheddar, swiss, parmesan etc. among consumers globally.

The retail application segment is expected to register a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to rising consumer awareness regarding healthy eating habits and changing lifestyles along with an increase in spending capacity among consumers globally. Analogous products such as provolone have higher protein content which makes them suitable for vegan population while mozzarella has more fat content making it ideal for use on sandwiches or wraps among other uses at retail level globally.  Increasing demand from retailers coupled with growing product portfolio by major players such as Kraft Foods Inc., Fonterra Co-operative Group Ltd.

Regional Analysis:

Europe was the largest regional market in 2017 and accounted for more than 35% of the global share. The presence of a large number of analog cheese producers in countries, such as France, Italy, and Germany is expected to remain a favorable factor for this industry. Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing region over the forecast period owing to increasing demand from China and India on account of rising population coupled with growing catering services sector. Furthermore, an increase in disposable income levels will also contribute toward market growth over the next eight years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for analog cheese from the foodservice industry as a substitute for processed cheese.
  • Rising consumer preference for natural and organic products, which is driving the growth of the analog cheese market.
  • Growing popularity of artisanal cheeses among consumers in developed countries is propelling the growth of the analog cheese market.
  • Proliferation of small-scale dairy farms that are producing high-quality artisanal cheeses is contributing to the growth of this market segment.
