Demand for dairy products has increased so rapidly in China that the country has become the center of the global dairy market - the main driver of the 'white gold rush' in 2014, and the subsequent crash the following year.

Competition is intensifying as more international dairy companies seek to make their fortunes in this huge market, while domestic players are struggling to remain competitive through M&A, improving raw milk supplies and upgrading processing facilities. Meanwhile, the ecommerce revolution is putting pressure on prices and the government continues to tighten regulations on food safety and imports.

On 21 December, 2016, Chevalese Dairy announced its acquisition of a 60% stake in Dongjun Dairy, a move intended to expand its sales channels in Northwest China, reduce its sales costs and create a new source of profit.

On 5 January, Mengniu and Modern Dairy jointly announced a deal with advantages for both, but the producer's problems don't look like being solved in the short-term.

On 5 January, the local food and drug administration announced a clampdown on the local infant formula manufacturer Yabais, likely ending the company's participation in the market.

On 26 December, 2016, Japan's Asahi announced it will transfer Asahi Farm and Asahi Milk to New Hope Dairy. This is expected to enable the latter's expansion in the premium dairy market.

On 30 December, 2016, the CSRC previewed the prospectus of plant beverage manufacturer Yangyuan Zhihui as it prepares to list. However there are signs that its failure to innovate may well constrain its future growth.

In early January, China's average milk purchase price continued rising, whilst GDT fell. It is expected that the domestic milk price will maintain its growth, based on the declines in production both at home and overseas.
