Dairy Product Production in the US
Over the past five years, the Dairy Product Production industry has benefited from the increasing popularity of yogurt and cheese products in the United States and abroad, which has offset declining fluid milk consumption. In addition, dairy producers have been able to pass along raw milk costs to consumers, especially producers that manufacture value-added products. Over the next five years, rising household disposable income stemming from the economic recovery is expected to boost dairy product demand and industry revenue. Additionally, producers are anticipated to introduce innovative products that cater to changing consumer tastes. Nevertheless, rising feed costs will increase the price of milk, hampering profit expansion, while competition from overseas dairy producers will temper revenue growth.
Operators in this industry mainly manufacture dairy products such as pasteurized milk, cream, butter, yogurt, cheese and dry, condensed and evaporated milk. The industry also manufactures substitute dairy products made from soybeans and other nondairy ingredients. Producers of dairy products such as ice cream and frozen yogurt are excluded from this industry (IBISWorld report 31152).
