Market Outlook:

The global Lactose-free milk market was valued at USD 5,843.6 Mn in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 13,133.2 Mn by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 10.6% during the forecast period. Lactose-free milk contains lactase, an enzyme that breaks down lactose. This milk is prepared by adding lactase to regular milk, which breaks down lactose into simple sugars. These sugars are easy to digest. For lactose intolerant individuals, it is difficult to avoid the indulgence and nutritious content of dairy food products. Lactose-free milk has nearly the same texture, taste, and nutrient profile compared to regular milk. Lactose-free milk is a great source of protein, vitamin D, and micronutrients such as phosphorus, calcium, vitamin B12, and riboflavin.

Global Lactose Free Milk Market Summary

Market Dynamics
The lactose-free market is anticipated to grow significantly during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to growing health consciousness coupled with increasing purchasing power of customers. Moreover, growing health concerns among customers and rising awareness regarding lactose intolerance is anticipated to fuel the market during the forecast period. Lactose-free milk offers various health benefits such as improving digestive health and bone health and providing complete protein to the body. Lactose in milk often causes digestive problems such as bloating, excessive gas problems, or nauseous after the consumption of milk. This can be avoided by alternating lactose-free milk products.

Increasing awareness among customers about lactose-free products has led to an increase in the growth of numerous product lines including flavored milk. Growing lactose intolerant population is projected to encourage the consumption of lactose-free milk in the coming years. This creates opportunities for key players to launch new lactose-free products with enhanced flavors and tastes. Development and innovations in lactose-free milk packaging is anticipated to gain consumer attention during the forecast period. Customers are adopting convenient beverage substitutes like flavored milk to keep them nourished while on the go, due to busy work-life schedules. This is anticipated to drive the demand for fortified and ready-to-drink lactose-free flavored milk products that fulfill the customers’ need for nutritional breakfast.
High prices of lactose–free milk products are anticipated to hamper the market growth during the forecast period. Raw milk is treated with a pasteurization process for increasing its shelf-life and enhancing the consistency of milk while converting it into lactose-free milk. For converting normal milk to lactose-free milk, the raw milk is processed with lactase enzymes for breaking down the compound lactose into two sugar forms, namely, galactose and glucose. This process of converting raw milk into lactose-free milk surges the price of lactose-free dairy products as compared to regular packaged dairy goods. Lactose-free milk is provided under the superior or premium product type, which caters to a small customer population, wherein regular milk is a commodity delivered at cost-effective prices, due to which it is consumed by a large-scale population.

COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is causing economic hardships for businesses, consumers, and communities across the world. Manufacturers are facing exclusive challenges caused by the crisis, and the lactose-free milk market is no exception. Lactose-free milk manufacturers are anticipated to face variations in demand, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, with significantly disruptive effects on the supply chain and revenues. These forces are expected to affect the demand outlook. Additionally, the COVID-19 outbreak is affecting production. Lactose-free milk manufacturers are expected to have weakening links in their supply chain, as some suppliers and vendors are facing financial or operational struggles, particularly in those regions hit hard by COVID-19, such as Europe and Asia Pacific-based supply chain partners.
