Frozen Dessert Market Size Worth $ 229.50 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 6.6%

The global Frozen Desserts market size is expected to reach USD 229.50 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Frozen Desserts Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Product (Ice Cream, Frozen Yogurt, Confectionery & Candies, Others); By Distribution Channel; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2024 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

In recent years, the frozen bakery and desserts sector has experienced the launch of numerous innovative products, driven by consumers' heightened emphasis on health and wellness. This shift has led to the creation of inventive flavors and the formulation of low-fat, gluten-free options. The rising demand for desserts with reduced sugar and calorie content is expected to drive market expansion. Notably, innovations in products, flavors, and packaging have become crucial contributors to this growth. Ice creams and frozen yogurts are gaining favor among consumers due to their convenience and time-saving features. For instance, Noosa Yogurt, a Colorado-based whole milk yogurt brand under the Sovos Brands portfolio, unveiled Frozen Yogurt Gelato in June 2022, introducing new flavors such as Chocolate Fudge, Sea Salt Caramel, Strawberries & Cream, and Honey Vanilla Bean.

Non-dairy products such as ice creams, enriched with significant levels of lipids, albumin, vitamins, carbohydrates, and casein, present notable health benefits. The industry is witnessing a surge in demand propelled by the evolving preference for vegan lifestyles, driven by increased health consciousness and socialization trends, leading consumers toward low-fat alternatives. Countries with a higher per capita ice cream consumption, notably in the United States and Europe, are experiencing a rise in product demand. The increasing prevalence of lactose intolerance and other milk-related allergies is further fueling the demand for such products. Unilever's announcement in November 2022 regarding its plans to introduce cow-free dairy ice cream in 2023 underscores the industry's dedication to offering diverse product choices, incorporating ingredients like coconut, almond, and soy milk. The incorporation of innovative flavor profiles, particularly those featuring blended flavors, has played a pivotal role in robust product development. The ongoing increase in consumer spending on take-home and impulse products is expected to boost the demand for non-dairy ice cream.
