Soy Milk Market Overview

The soy milk market size is expected to reach USD 16.76 Billion in 2030, with a compound annual growth rate of 6.66% during the period of forecast 2022-2030.

Due to this pandemic situation, restrictions were imposed by the government of different countries. The Soy milk market also witnessed some downfall as all the restaurants, Stalls, and shops were closed due to Covid-19 restrictions where either milkshake made up of soy milk are being served or other non-dairy products are available for consumption. Also, the supply chains have been disrupted due to these covid-19 restrictions which have largely impacted which have drastically brought down the sales of the soy milk market. But on the other side, the inclination of consumers towards usage of health-oriented food and beverages products due to the terror of this pandemic situation will enable this industry to make a powerful comeback once these restrictions are lifted.

Soy Milk Market Dynamics


One of the factors responsible for the growth of this soy milk market is considered to be an economic option due to its lower price in comparison to other alternatives like almond milk or cashew milk and providing more health benefits than such options. Also, the rising demand for lactose-free products they are digested by the human body very easily and it is another factor responsible for the growth of this market. Lastly, the launch of different flavours of soya milk with enhanced protein content is another factor driving the market growth to a large extent. The production volume of soya beans is anticipated to 83 million metric tons in 2030 from 54 million metric tons in 2022.
