The Global Dairy Market

On this page, we provide with two graphs giving a general overview of the dairy industry's world market, in terms of the major exporting countries'export volume.
Considering the sum of the following products:
  1. HS 0406 - Cheese,
  2. HS 0405 - Butter,
  3. HS 040210 - SMP (Skimmed Milk Powder),
  4. HS 040221+040229 - WMP (Whole Milk Powder 26%),
  5. HS 040110+040120 - Bulk and pack. milk,
  6. HS 040130+040140+040150 - Cream,
  7. HS 0403 - Yogurt,
  8. HS 040291+040299 - Condensed milk,
  9. HS 190110 - Infant milk formula,
  10. HS 0404 - Whey Powder,
  11. HS 350110 - Casein,
  12. HS 350190 - Caseinates,

the first graph compares the quantity (tonnes), which is then translated by the second graph as an amount in USD ($US values).
 
The graphs are showed together with tables that clearly display both quantity and values, Area by Area. Data is updated on an annual basis since it is incorporated within a framework of rapid evolution.
Indeed, when viewed in their global context, the following are found to be changing rapidly:
  • the supply of products placed on the international market in relation to the development of domestic demand (population/GDP) and the quantities of milk production;
  • demand for the same products (in relation to the purchasing country's change);
  • the measures taken by individual countries (in relation to political and strategic choices, customs protection policies, etc.);
  • climatic conditions (drought, floods, etc.);
  • exogenous events that can affect the dynamics of demand and supply (from epidemics to the quest for alternative energy sources, lifestyle changes, etc.)
