Yes, yes, yes! Millennials (and people in general) are huge fans of ice cream. We know this, you know this, everyone knows this. Ice cream is the perfect way to cool down after a warm day or comfort yourself during your favorite movie at the end of a long workday. It’s creamy, scrumptious, easy to make and easy to buy. And now, our love for vegan ice cream has finally been backed up by experts.
According to recent Technavio research, the global vegan ice cream market is growing quickly and massively. In this report, Technavio features the ascending popularity of vegan ice cream among millennials as one of the leading emerging trends driving the global market. Over the last decade, the number of people embracing veganism and opting for plant-based diets has increased by about 300%!
A senior analyst at Technavio said, “To cater to the rising demand from the millennial population base, players in the market are also coming up with new and innovative flavors of vegan ice creams.”
