Unprocessed Cheese Witnesses Higher Demand on Account of Taste and Texture

The international cheese market can be segmented into processed and unprocessed, on the basis of product type. The demand for processed cheese is rising in developing economies, such as India and China, on account of changing lifestyle and the tendency to eat more frequently. Being recently introduced to cheese and its variations, unprocessed cheese and its flavor is not expected to find favor in these geographies. In terms of market share, unprocessed cheese segment is predicted to rise at a slower pace. However, cheese has been in use in developed regions for a longer duration, and the taste and texture of unprocessed cheese is gaining popularity over its processed counterpart. Developed countries such as the U.S., UK, Germany and Canada are projected to foresee a higher demand in unprocessed cheese.

On the basis of distribution channels, the cheese market is segmented as convenience stores, hyper/supermarkets, and grocery stores. Among these, the hyper/supermarket segment is foretold to hold the dominant market share, on account of developing countries aiding to their growth. The rising disposable incomes makes it possible for the hypermarket/supermarket segment to hold a substantial market share.

On the flip side, rising health concerns due to an unhealthy diet, short shelf life of the product, and unstable economic conditions across the globe are estimated to hamper the growth of the global cheese market in the coming years.
