(2) Industry concentration is further strengthened

Due to the industry characteristics of the non-dairy creamer industry, such as continuously increasing product quality requirements, obvious economies of scale, and increasingly important technology research and development levels, as well as the impact of factors such as fluctuations in raw material prices, it is difficult for small enterprises to increase their business scale and reduce unit costs in the short term. , and at the same time, its ability to resist risks is also weak, and its living space in market competition will continue to be squeezed. Therefore, the production capacity of the non-dairy creamer industry will tend to be further concentrated in the future.

(3) Market demand tends to be diversified, and the demand for custom-developed products continues to increase.

Judging from the trend of demand changes, as people’s incomes increase and consumption awareness changes, the market will pay more attention to safety, nutrition and convenience when choosing non-dairy creamer products. Non-dairy creamer products that meet the needs of downstream consumers will continue to be introduced. It can be seen that the continuous innovative development of consumer demand in downstream application fields has promoted the development of the non-dairy creamer industry, promoting the continuous improvement of the specialization of the non-dairy creamer industry, and the diversification and differentiation of products have become more obvious. In recent years, high value-added, personalized food and beverages have become an industry development trend, and the demand for intelligent, diversified, and customized production has continued to increase; developing functional new products, improving product quality, and increasing brand cultivation have become industry consensus .

(4) The demand for high-quality and healthy products continues to increase
