Responsibilities

WHY working on vegan ice cream is exciting right now! 

The global vegan ice cream market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.79% from 2018-2022, according to a report by Technavio. The expanding global vegan population is a major factor driving the market’s growth. “Over the last decade, the number of people adopting veganism and opting for vegan diets has increased by about 300%,” according to the report.

A key market trend is the rising popularity of vegan ice cream among Millennials. The take-home vegan ice cream segment held the largest market share (nearly 52%) in 2017, while the fastest-growing product, artisanal vegan ice cream, will make up almost 8% of the total market share by 2022.

The Americas dominated the market in 2017 with around 45% share. But by 2022, the Asia Pacific market is expected to witness the highest growth in terms of market share around the world.
