The demand for powdered yogurt in food processing sector for dairy nutrition is gradually increasing.

Future Market Insights (FMI) has predicted in a new study that the yoghurt powder market will reach US$ 211.6 Mn by the end of 2021. The increasing inclination among consumers towards probiotics, specifically among people facing digestive issues, is estimated to bode well for the yogurt powder market.

This demand for yogurt powder is expected to increase in the coming years at a CAGR of 7.5%.
The use of cosmetics, toiletries, and personal care products has always been on the rise. However, the use of organic and/or natural ingredients such as yogurt powder for the preparation of these cosmetics and personal care products has increased in the recent years.

Yogurt powder has several beneficial properties such as skin moisturizing and anti-aging properties. It also has anti-fungal properties and is included in hair treatments. These factors have been supporting demand from cosmetics & personal care industries
However, application in food industry will remain the highest through the course of the forecast period.
