This can be attributed to the stringent guidelines around the global purity level of lactose in industries like pharmaceuticals and infant formula. Further, new innovations like dry-blend infant-grade lactose and others are also expected to contribute to the growth of the segment.

 

North America to Significantly Contribute to the Global Lactose Industry

Geographically, North America is a significant region in the global market for lactose. The growth can be attributed to the increasing penetration of leading players, thriving food and beverages industry, and stringent food and safety regulations in the region. Moreover, the growing pharmaceutical industry is significantly contributing to the demand for refined-edible grade lactose, thus, further propelling the lactose industry growth in North America. Meanwhile, the Asia Pacific is expected to witness a robust growth in the forecast period owing to the rapidly increasing demand for infant formula in countries like China and India. This can be attributed to the presence of a large population, rising awareness, and improving standards of living. Additionally, the increasing feed production in the region is also aiding the industry growth as lactose has applications in feed industry, especially as an ingredient for pig feed.

 

Lactose: Market Segmentation

Lactose, composed of glucose and galactose, is a by-product of cheese manufacturing. When cheese is manufactured, the liquid whey gets separated as a by-product, which is further evaporated and processed to obtain crystalline lactose.  Several dairy products like cheese, butter, milk cream, and others contain lactose. However, human milk is found to have the highest concentrations of lactose. Commercially, lactose is produced in various purity ranges and colours, with each variant having specific characteristic properties.
