Margarine is being used as a functional and less expensive butter replacement that provides both richness and stability to finished baked goods without jeopardizing flavor.
Due the impact of health benefits of Margarine over Butter, the dairy Industry is investing more in Margarine products and its variants. More than 50% of the U.S population prefer Margarine over Butter says DataM research.
The lifestyle and dietary habits of consumers are changing. Consumers are becoming more aware of the intake of fats and calories. A shift is being observed in the consumers’ diet to-wards dairy-free and more natural products. So, consumers prefer margarine over butter because of its low-fat and calories.
The cost of dairy products, especially butter is high and is forecasted to increase further. The high price of butter will boost the market for margarine, which is a cheaper alternative to butter. The low price of margarine has resulted in its increased applications in the food processing industry that uses only butter. The use of margarine has significantly brought down the production costs in these industries, thus reducing the overall cost of end products.
Availability of other alternatives for margarine and health-related concerns of fat consumption may restrain the growth in the industry.
