The American Dairy Products Institute (ADPI), Elmhurst, Ill., said it released for purchase the results of its annual "Dairy Products Utilization and Production Trends" survey.

"Understanding the global market for dairy ingredients — the production and utilization trends, as well as changing export numbers — is crucial for developing a successful marketing strategy to increase the worldwide use of these nutritious and functional products," said Steve Griffin, ADPI’s director of finance and editor of the publication.

Each year, ADPI collects market data from its members and other dairy industry participants on ways in which the milk-based and whey-based dairy ingredients they distribute are used. The "2018 Dairy Products Utilization and Production Trends" publication is a full-color glossy reference tool that contains the only industrywide data collected on the commercial uses of dry and condensed milks, whey products and lactose ingredients, ADPI said. New to the publication this year are sections highlighting new production introductions for dry milk and whey products.

"It is a privilege to produce this valuable industry publication. This publication includes commercial utilization data, as well as an abundance of information about dry dairy ingredients, including 2018 production figures, export volumes and other key industry statistics," Griffin said. "I would like to thank everyone who took the time to assemble materials and report their information to create this unique compilation of dry dairy ingredient trends."

The publication is available in an easily downloadable PDF format via email, ADPI said. It may also be purchased online by clicking here (member price is $30; non-member price is $120). To get a quick look at the data the publication has to offer, access the table of contents here.
