Increased consumption of fruit bars, dairy-free sweets, and keto ice cream cakes has helped plant-based ice cream sales soar. The market is anticipated to change in the future as some of the top businesses go on the plant-based ice cream bandwagon.

Market Dynamic


The increased desire for sweets with low sugar content, few processed ingredients, and no labels from the population of health and fitness enthusiasts will favor the expansion of the global plant-based ice cream market in the next years. Additionally, increasing sales of plant-based ice cream are being boosted by expanding demand for non-dairy sweets, Keto-friendly ice cream cakes, and fruit bars for various uses (snacks, protein, energy, etc.).


Plant-based ice creams, like all other natural or plant-based goods, are thought to provide several advantages over traditional ice creams in terms of functionality. Companies that make frozen desserts are also reformulating ice cream to appeal to environmentally and health-conscious consumers.

However, the formulation of plant-based ice creams is far more difficult than that of their traditional counterparts, which results in high processing costs. Because more ingredients are needed to provide the desired flavors and textures when dairy is removed from ice cream, food labels become even more confusing. These elements could potentially pose a threat to the sales of plant-based ice cream.

Plant-based ice creams are becoming increasingly popular despite their relatively high price tag compared to conventional ice cream and formulation challenges.


The expansion of the worldwide plant-based ice cream market in the next years is driven by manufacturers’ attention to creating and promoting new “clean label” and “label-free” plant-based ice cream products. Despite being a substantial barrier to growth for the sector, the high cost of these products in the worldwide market for plant-based ice cream, compared to standard products, is likely to drive demand in the upcoming years.
