At the 8th of October 2018, the latest IFCN Dairy Report 2018 has been published. The report has become a guideline publication for researchers and companies along the whole dairy chain to understand the dairy world.
The data and insights can build the backbone for a comprehensive, holistic analysis and a solid fact base for discussions and strategic decisions.
In 2018, the IFCN Dairy Report focuses on the dairy value chain, covering 115 country profiles representing 98% of total global milk production. On the farm level, 177 typical farm types of 53 countries have been analysed. For the first time, fundamental indicators to asses sustainability on economic, social and environmental issues are monitored.
IFCN, the Dairy Research Network, published the IFCN Top 20 list of milk processors around the globe. This list is published every second year and shows the market share of biggest milk processor giants. The top 20 milk processors collect 211 mill ton ME milk, 25,4% of produced milk worldwide.
New results from IFCN Top 20 Milk Processors List 2018 shows that 25.4 % of produced milk worldwide is processed from top 20 dairy giants. The total collection of top 20 milk processors rose steadily from 200 in 2015 to 211 million tonnes of milk in 2017. Like the 2016 ranking, Dairy Farmers of America topped the list in 2018 with 29.2 million tonnes milk intake holding 3.5% of the total market share of world’s total milk production.

The companies Arla, Nestlé and Friesland Campina take ranks 4 to 6 with milk intake of ca. 14 mill t milk intake.

Between now and 2030, the worldwide demand growth for milk and milk products will be three times the level of current US milk production, this was one of the main findings of the latest publication from the IFCN – the Dairy Research Network – discussed at the 19th IFCN Dairy Conference, which opened on Monday, 11th June, in Teagasc, Moorepark, Cork.
Today, about 876 million tonnes of milk is produced worldwide with Oceania, EU and India among the leading producers. But how much additional milk is needed in 2030?
Dr Torsten Hemme, Managing Director of the IFCN, stated: “More milk will be needed on the market. The increase of demand is not only due to more people living in the world, but also the per capita consumption will increase, due to growing prosperity and worldwide investments in dairy product development”. The founder of IFCN underlined that the increased demand will be covered by higher global milk supply. The dynamics of structural changes of dairy farms internationally will continue and farms will intensify their farming systems. Hemme said that ‘By 2030, IFCN forecasts an increase in milk production and demand in total by 35%’.
