U.S. retail sales of refrigerated yogurt are forecast to rise 2.1% annually through 2022, according to “Yogurt: United States,” a report released by Freedonia Focus Reports, Cleveland, Ohio. Gains will reflect growth in per-capita consumption as more consumers explore drinkable yogurts. Retailers will continue to benefit from price growth in organic varieties. However, ongoing price competition among suppliers of inorganic yogurt, including Greek yogurt, will restrain faster advances.
While spoonable yogurt accounts for the far larger product segment, growth in retail sales of refrigerated yogurt drinks are expected to outpace those of spoonable types.
