The dairy market in Qatar is experiencing a positive growth and is expected to expand at a CAGR of XX% over the period of forecast.

Rapid westernization and rising health awareness driving the market for dairy products

Population growth, altering consumption patterns, continual modernization of the food value chain, and the booming tourism industry are some of the key drivers that are aiding the growth of the dairy industry. Rising health awareness and an evolving taste for a westernized diet, primarily by the increasing expatriate population, are stirring a change in the region’s dietary habits. These factors are creating a market for international and organic foods that also have a positive effect on the growth of the dairy industry.

Increasing focus on reducing the dependence on dairy imports, thereby encouraging higher domestic production

Historically, Qatar has been quite dependent on the imports of foodstuffs to meet the local demand. With an aim to reduce this dependency on imports, various steps are being taken by the government to support and encourage local production.

Similar to other GCC countries, Qatar is also investing in the dairy industry. Qatar authorities recently announced a major dairy venture for which the government has allocated 62,000 sq. m and 500 hectares of land to the production of fodder to support the livelihood of livestock. This ambitious project to produce milk and other dairy products locally is being worked on by the Ministry of Economy and Commerce in collaboration with the Ministry of Environment. As a result, though Qatar remains dependent on imports, there has been a significant increase in the domestic production.
