The global Dairy Snack market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period, from 2021-2028. The market size was valued at USD 9,343 million in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 11,636 million by 2028. Dairy Snacks are a processed food product that is usually made from milk or dairy products. Dietetic foods with little to no added sugars and fats, also known as "healthy snacks" can also be classified under this category. These types of products have become an important part of people's diets due to the convenience they offer.

On the basis of types, the market is segmented into Cheese, Yogurt, Butter, Buttermilk, ice cream, lactose-free milk, and others. The cheese segment has the largest share in terms of revenue contribution.



Cheese is a processed food product made from the milk of cows, goats, or sheep. It may be solid when chilled and hard as curd cheese, semi-solid like cream cheese, soft like Brie with surface mold, fruit jelly, or vegetable paste Brulee on top.



Yogurt is a dairy product, fermented milk. It has been eaten for thousands of years and may have originated from ancient Middle Eastern or Indian cultures.



Butter is a dairy product that was traditionally made from cream but can also be made from milk. Butter has been manufactured in Europe since the Second World War and it is mostly produced by churning fresh or fermented cream or unsalted butter to remove the water (i.e., buttermilk).



Buttermilk is a type of dairy product made from milk that has been cultured with lactic acid bacteria, usually those belonging to the genus Lactobacillus. Like yogurt and sour cream, it can be consumed by itself or as an ingredient in other dishes (e.g., dressing).


Ice cream

Ice cream is a sweetened frozen dairy product. Typically, it consists of milk and sugar combined with various flavorings such as vanilla or chocolate extracts. It can also contain eggs, corn syrup, natural or artificial flavors, gelatins (e.g., pectin), vegetable oils (e.g., palm oil), emulsifiers.


Lactose-free Milk

Lactose-free milk is a type of dairy product made from cow's milk that has been processed to remove lactose. It contains reduced levels of galactose and glucose, which are broken down by bacteria in the colon into lactic acid - reducing symptoms for those who suffer from lactose intolerance (i.e., allergy).


On the basis of application, the market is segmented into HoReCa, beverage industry, and food industry.



Dairy snacks are used in HoReCa to add flavor to the dishes. In the HoReCa segment, dairy snacks are mainly consumed in bars as appetizers or at restaurants for dessert purposes.


Beverage Industry

Dairy snacks are utilized in the beverage industry as an addition to yogurt-based beverages, such as smoothies and frappes. Dairy products can also be used for making ice cream, sodas, or other types of milkshakes.


Food Industry

Dairy snacks are used in the food industry as a preservative and to add flavor. Dairy products can be utilized for making various types of cheese, butter, ice cream toppings, dairy sauces, etc.


On the basis of region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. North America is the biggest market for dairy snacks followed by Europe owing to the high adoption of these products in countries such as Canada and the USA. Dairy products are gaining popularity due to the benefits they offer, such as high calcium content and low cholesterol. Moreover, these dairy snacks help in weight management owing to their lower fat content when compared with other types of food items. The North American region has a higher adoption rate for dairy snacks than any other country.
