Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “With increasing instances of health issues people prefer a healthy diet. Low-fat cheeses are more in demand. The fast-paced lifestyle means people actually don’t have time to exercise and in such cases they try to reduce their intake of calories and extra fats in their diet. All these factors have pushed demand for low-fat food. Low-fat cheese contains less saturated fat and a low sodium content. Most low-fat cheese is made from skimmed milk, which contains less fat in comparison to normal cheese. Low fat is also preferred by parents for their children because they do not want them to become obese. Almost every leading cheese manufacturing organization, including Groupe Lactalis, Kraft Foods, and Arla Foods, offers low-fat cheese in the US. The growing popularity of low-fat cheese in the US is expected to drive the cheese market in the country in the future.”

According to the report, natural cheese includes Cheddar, Mozzarella, blue, Provolone, Romano, and many others. The consumption of natural cheese in all forms has increased over the processed cheese in the US. Varieties made from organic milk, milk from a cow fed on grass, and milk free from artificial growth hormones are surging more in popularity. People tend to demand more of safer and healthy food. Kraft leads the natural and specialty cheese market in US. Greater demand is for the gourmet, organic and unprocessed cheese. Sales of natural cheese have been steadily rising over past years and this isn't going to change.

Further, the report states that increased health consciousness has posed a big challenge for the cheese market in the US.
