Lactose Market Growth

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

 

The growing pharmaceutical sector in developing countries, particularly in Asia, is a significant factor fuelling lactose market expansion. Additionally, the increasing demand for lactose in food processing and infant formula manufacturing, particularly in major dairy-producing countries, is contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, the rising demand for food and infant-grade lactose from these countries is also boosting the growth of the market.

 

Key Trends and Developments

Increasing demand for refined-edible grade lactose, rising demand for infant formula, and increasing consumption for dairy products are factors shaping the lactose market outlook

 

March 2023

FrieslandCampina opened a new facility in the Netherlands that produces 80 metric tonnes of lactoferrin per year, an antiviral ingredient and critical component of infant formula.

 

November 2022

MEGGLE GmbH & Co. KG extended its InhaLac product family with a new milled lactose grade, InhaLac 180. This new excipient was designed for dry powder inhalation (DPI) applications and offers a highly uniform particle size distribution (PSD) and better flow and surface characteristics.

 

March 2022

Arla Foods Ingredients Group P/S launched two new products in its organic sector: Lacprodan IF-7390 Organic and Premium Lactose Organic. These products were designed to cater to the growing demand for organic infant nutrition in the Chinese market.

 

Rising demand for refined-edible grade lactose

The rising demand for refined-edible grade lactose is expected to aid the market growth in the forecast period due to the stringent guidelines regarding purity level of lactose in industries like pharmaceuticals. New innovations like dry-blend infant-grade lactose are also expected to contribute to segment’s growth.

 

Growing demand for infant formula

The lactose market growth is also driven by the growing demand for infant formula among parents and declining rates of breastfeeding. Companies like Abbott and Mead Johnson are expanding their infant formula offerings to cater to the growing demand for lactose-based infant formula.

 

Expansion of lactose applications in pharmaceutical industry

The pharmaceutical industry is driving the demand for lactose as an excipient in the production of antibiotics and painkillers. Approximately 60%–70% of pharmaceutical dosage forms contain lactose, making it one of the most widely used pharmaceutical excipients.

 

Lactose Market Trends

The market’s expansion is being driven by the growing demand for infant formula across the globe. The declining breast-feeding rates and the increasing awareness regarding the importance of infant nutrition are driving the demand for infant formula.

 

Moreover, the increasing R&D activities and the new product launches by the leading players are expected to further boost the lactose market development. Lactalis Ingredients, a major player, entered the pharmaceutical industry in October 2023 by launching its sieved and milled lactose monohydrate range Lactalpha. This expanded the company's offerings for clinical, infant, and food applications.

 

Lactose intolerance, a common digestive condition, affects individuals who have difficulty digesting lactose, the sugar found in milk and dairy products. This intolerance drives demand for lactose-free alternatives in the global lactose market. Further, the increasing disposable incomes and the rising standards of living in developing nations are significantly contributing to the industry growth. Additionally, the growing pharmaceutical industry, coupled with the increasing demand for baked goods, confectionery, and dairy products is also boosting the industry growth.
