Overview for Somalia Milk Powder Market

The milk processing industry in Somalia was small compared to the huge amount of milk produced every year as liquid milk was preferred by the households. However, the country’s milk industry collapsed in the year 2017 when a devastating drought killed an estimated 6.4 million cows, camels, and goats. In pastoral areas, the impact of the drought on livestock has led to a lack of access to milk thereby increasing the consumption of milk powder. Most of the demand-supply gaps of liquid milk requirements for urban consumers were met by importing dry milk powders from countries such as the Middle East and Europe. The market showcased a volatile growth trajectory. Milk Powder revenue attained a year on year growth during 2014-2019 along with a double-digit CAGR of 12.5% in terms of Sales Value. The presence of numerous small and large manufacturers who compete in terms of prices and quality are driving the growth. Furthermore, initiatives by the government regarding the quality standard are increasing sales.

Somalia Milk Powder Market Segmentation

Type of Milk Powder: The whole milk powder segment dominated the market due to it being perceived to be the most natural form of processed milk by a large number of consumers.

However, due to it being popular for having less fat content and less overall calories, skimmed milk powder segment is expected to witness the highest CAGR over the forecast period.

By Application: Due to the demand-supply gap of fresh liquid milk, the majority of the milk powder is reconstituted into a liquid milk and is widely used in Somalia because of reduced transport and storage costs.

By Distribution Channel: Supermarkets & Hypermarkets dominated the market with the highest revenue share in 2019. Majority of the milk powder companies from neighboring countries such as Kenya and Uganda operates through its own distribution channels in Somalia. However, imported milk powder from the Middle East and Europe are sold through distributors.

By Type of Market: Even though co-operatives provide a remunerative price to the producer, the unorganized sector plays a major role in milk powder marketing because of three factors-  Pricing Policy, Type of Milk Animals and Payment Policy. Unorganized sector including local milk vendors, wholesalers, retailers and producers themselves dominate the market as most of the traders opt for tax saving methods by illegally importing the milk powder from various countries.
