Being a pronounced continent both in terms of geographical area and population, Africa has a high growth and profit earning opportunities for various dairy products manufactures and retailers in the continent. However, presence of volatility in the economies and fluctuating currency exchange rates of various nations in Africa, most of the countries in Africa are still tagged as developing or under developed nations in world.
In dairy industry Africa , the continent is observed to grow at a steady pace in terms of local currency. The increasing use of high yield milk producing hybrid cow and inclining number of dairy farms across various nations in Africa, the overall milk production capacity in Africa has been recorded to increase from ~ million tonnes in 2010 to ~ million tones in 2015.
According to Ken Research This rise in the milk production capacity at various dairy farms has increased the profit shares of various dairy product manufacturers in different nations of Africa but subsequently due to the declining exchange rate of regional currency/USD of different nations of Africa, the import of dairy products from foreign continents had become costlier for the dairy product dealers. Consequently, it has decreased the profit share of dairy manufacturers in the various nations of the continent; resulting which Africa dairy product market declined from the market size of USD ~ billion in 2013 to USD ~ billion in 2015.
Which Government Regultory Bodies Are Regulating Dairy Product Market In Africa?

Under Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP) II drafted by the government of Ethiopia, the projected cow milk production is projected to increase by ~% reaching out to ~ million liters during the period (2015–2020). This production increase would make it possible to meet the milk production targets in the GTP II phase, exceeding the growing domestic demand for milk by ~%.
