Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is demand for lactose-free ice creams. Milk or milk products contain lactose, and it is a disaccharide sugar composed of galactose and glucose that is found in milk. It is also present in processed foods as manufacturers add milk derivatives to various products. Lactose has positive and negative effects on the human body. It results in health problems such as flatulence, nausea, and malnutrition. It has been observed that consumers have become more health conscious, and they look for healthy products.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is rise in demand for premium ice creams. Premiumization is a trend in the global ice cream market, and it has the potential to drive the market in the coming future. Premium ice creams have become the most popular product among consumers due to the high quality. It has a lower amount of aeration compared to regular ice creams. The fat content in premium ice creams is also higher than regular ice creams.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is increased competition from frozen yogurt brands. Owing to the demand for healthy variants, manufacturers have started focusing on producing products that are less harmful and adding more healthy ingredients. Frozen yogurt is marketed as a healthy alternative to ice creams. It does not contain cream, which has a high fat and calorie content. There is high demand for frozen yogurt due to its health benefits. It contains proteins and probiotics. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria, which help in digestion.
