The Ice Cream Manufacturing industry has performed positively over the past five years. Revenue is expected to increase at a compound annual 5.5% over the five years through 2014-15. Ice cream manufacturers have benefited from rising demand for industry products, particularly in the premium and scoop-and-serve segments. Niche operators that provide premium ice cream and gourmet gelato products have proven to be extremely successful over the past five years. Despite fairly high levels of consumer health consciousness and the growing popularity of substitute snacks such as frozen yoghurt, demand for the industry's traditional take-home tub segment has remained fairly steady.
Companies in the industry primarily manufacture ice cream, gelato, sorbet or frozen confectionery.
