Dairy ingredients provide satisfactory nutritional, organoleptic, and functional needs. Dairy ingredients contain calcium, protein, vitamin A, vitamin B12, zinc, and magnesium, which are necessary for the development of bone density and nourishment. India is the largest producer and consumer of milk on account of implementation of different schemes such as National Mission on Bovine Productivity, which was implemented in November 2016. The scheme was entitled to a financial allocation of around US$ 126 million to be spent over a period of three years for the genetic improvement of cattle and water buffalo population through delivery of breeding inputs to the dairy farms.

According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the fluid milk consumption in India was recorded at 67.7 million metric tons in 2018, which was around 4% higher than the previous year. Furthermore, the country recorded butter consumption of 5.6 million metric tons in the same year. The high consumption is majorly attributed to the constantly increasing population and rising income of the consumers among others.

The demand for sports nutrition is gaining significant traction in the market, which in turn is positively influencing the growth of dairy ingredients market. Glycogen synthase activity is one of the key factors for glycogenesis, which in turn is imperative for the development of skeletal muscle. According to the National Centre for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), the inclusion of protein in the form of whey protein isolates (WPI) with quantity ranging between 0.4g/kg to 0.8 g/kg in beverage products promotes high rates of muscle glycogen replenishment coupled with extensive training. Such factors are highly responsible for the growth of the dairy ingredients market.
