Extreme weather conditions across the globe are putting a strain on dairy cows, drying up milk production and withering crops that feed the cattle. Heat and drought in India, Australia and France are threatening long-term global dairy supply, including everything from butter to baby formula.
Due to extreme weather brought on by climate change, some of the world's largest milk-producing regions are becoming less hospitable to these animals: Cows produce less milk when stressed by high temperatures, and arid conditions and storms exacerbate the problem by withering or destroying the grass and other crops they eat.
In fact, some scientists predict that climate change will cost the dairy industry around $2.2 billion per year by the end of the century in the United States alone.
According to another study, if greenhouse gas emissions remain high, the dairy and meat industries could lose $39.94 billion per year to heat stress by that same date.
Fortunately, new and innovative alternative milk products are being developed for the market and consumers have been responding well.
Plant-Based Milk Market Continues to Gain Steam
Alternative dairy and plant-based milk are not new, but they have continued to rise in popularity over the years. In 2022, the plant-based milk market reached $38.9 billion after doubling in the previous five years. And over the next decade, the global market is expected to quadruple.
As the market grows and evolves, new plant-based milk formulations are replacing old ones as consumer favorites.
Soy milk was popular at first, but it gave way to almond milk. Now, oat milk is rapidly gaining popularity. Even as oat milk becomes more popular, a new plant-based milk trend is emerging: sesame milk.
Some of the key factors behind the market's growth are the rising prevalence of dairy intolerance, as well as growing concern for the planet. Add to that increasing consumer awareness of the health of animals, and it’s easy to see why the plant-based milk industry is expected to continue rising in the coming years.
Of course, alternatives like almond milk still take a toll on the planet due to high water usage and damage to bee populations. Luckily, there are new alternatives like sesame milk, which uses 95% less water compared to almond milk and thrives in arid climates around the globe, from South America to Africa to Asia.
