Considering the nature of the product, the vegan yogurt market continues to witness a high level of fragmentation, with unorganized players maintaining their strong presence. The level of fragmentation is higher also on account of the fact that many emerging countries in the Asia Pacific are among the leading producers and consumers of vegan yogurt. Lax regulations, stronghold over domestic supply chains, and intimacy with local tastes and preferences are the key factors that can be attributed to the growth of the unorganized sector in vegan yogurt market. Unorganized players hold a healthy 43% revenue share of the market; small players also make up 42% of total share.
The organized segment of the vegan yogurt market is also highly fragmented, with a number of players vying for consumer attention. .

Consumers around the world are uncertain regarding the nutritional and processing attributes for terming a product as vegan. Further, using labels such as milk, cheese, and yogurt for non-dairy substitutes has created confusion among consumers who often mistake the nutritional content of vegan products to be equivalent to their dairy counterparts.
Regulatory authorities around the world have stepped in to alleviate some of the consumer concerns. For instance, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is scrutinizing the standards of identity laid down for using dairy names for non-dairy products. The regulatory authority has issued a request for information (RFI) to garner feedback on how consumers use dairy substitutes and the way they comprehend terms like milk, yogurt, and cheese. Through the survey, FDA plans to promote innovations in the production of vegan yogurt and other plant-based products. In a similar vein, the European Union has announced it would establish a definition of vegan food in 2019 which will lay the groundwork for labeling any product as vegan. With the definition, EU aims to educate the consumers as well as lay down proper guidelines for companies involved in the production of vegan foods and beverages. Budding companies, as well as old market players, can leverage the information to streamline their strategies to tap into the extensive vegan consumer market base.
