Market Overview

Global Frozen Dessert Market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.64% to reach USD 102.90 Billion by 2026. Frozen desserts are produced by freezing liquids, semi-solids, and sometimes even solids. They are referred to as desserts that need to be stored below the freezing point of the water. Frozen desserts use vegetable fats such as edible vegetable oil or palm oil instead of milk fat, which makes them healthier with no cholesterol and lower saturated fat. The examples of frozen desserts are pudding, custards, and ice cream cake.

High consumption of frozen yogurt is one of the important factors driving the global frozen desserts market. Frozen yogurt is one of the most popular frozen desserts consumed across the globe. Yogurt delivers on desirable attributes, including nutrition and digestion, and comes in a wide variety of flavors to satisfy the needs of all age groups. Frozen yogurt contains carbohydrates, proteins, and vitamins, and it also packs a healthy dose of calcium, which aids in the strengthening of bones, keeping the heart in good shape, and helps in losing weight.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created a global crisis across the world. The outbreak of COVID-19 has created a panic situation among the consumers with temporary closures of retail stores in an attempt to slow the spread of the virus. This led to panic purchasing among the consumers as they got involved in pantry stockpiling of longer shelf life food products such as frozen desserts. The COVID-19 outbreak does not impact the prices of frozen desserts, but it is estimated that the prices will spike post the lockdown period. The manufacturers are expected to increase the prices of frozen desserts owing to the increase in operational cost, raw material costs, and to overcome the losses caused due to the pandemic.

Market Dynamics

Global Frozen Desserts Market is expected to register a notable growth rate during the forecast period. Rising demand for artisanal ice cream is expected to fuel the sales of frozen desserts among the consumers. Increasing consumption of frozen yogurt across the globe is another key factor boosting the sales of the global frozen desserts market. The introduction of specialty frozen desserts is expected to create profitable growth opportunities for the vendors operating in the global market. However, fluctuating raw material prices and high production cost of milk are the major restraints for the market growth as they affect the prices of the product.
