UHT Milk Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023

UHT (Ultra-high temperature) Milk refers to the sterilized milk which has been subjected to thermal treatment. The Ultra-high temperature processing kills the spores and germs present in the milk but preserves the essential vitamins and nutrients. It is heated beyond the temperature of 135 degrees Celsius (275 degrees Fahrenheit) for 1 or 2 seconds which helps in increasing the shelf life of milk without adding any preservatives. UHT milk is aseptically packed which makes it ready for consumption directly from the carton without any need of boiling. It can be stored at room temperature and thus have minimal requirement of refrigeration and cold chains. As a result of these factors, UHT milk market is witnessing strong growth in both developed and developing regions. UHT milk has also penetrated the non-fridge households and the regions where milk availability is scarce. According the IMARC Group, the global UHT milk market has grown at a CAGR of 5.7% during 2010-2017, reaching volume of around 100.3 Billion Litres in 2017.
