Ice Cream and Frozen Novelties - US - May 2009
Ice cream is truly one of life’s great pleasures, enjoyed by young and old, those who are healthy and those who are ill, and people of virtually every culture, in all parts of the country, at all times of the year. Companies compete to create the lowest fat and highest fat versions of it, and it is so important to so many that consumers who cannot consume dairy products demand it in non-dairy form. But it is also a very mature category that has been on grocer’s shelves since grocery stores came into existence.
Between 2003 and 2008, the ice cream and frozen novelties market grew by more than 16%, from $10.4 billion to $12.1 billion. Yet, a good deal of that growth happened prior to 2005. Since 2005, growth has slowed and certain segments of the market have begun to decline, while others continue to grow rapidly.
