Lactase Market Synopsis


Lactase Market size is projected to reach approximately USD 321.9 Million by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2020 to 2027. Lactase is an enzyme that catalyzes the breakdown of lactose into simple sugars: glucose and galactose. It is added to dairy products or supplements to break down the lactose and make it easier for the consumers to digest. The demand for lactase is gaining huge importance among dairy manufacturers owing to the rising demand for lactose-free products. The high prevalence of lactose intolerance among the population worldwide has increased the demand for lactose-free products. Thus, dairy manufacturers are highly inclined towards increasing their product line of lactose-free products. This has encouraged the lactase manufacturers for new product launches. For instance, in November 2020, DSM launched its new Maxilact Super lactase enzyme to produce lactose-free and sugar-reduced dairy products. With the outbreak of COVID-19, the population worldwide are becoming conscious of their diet intake and are highly inclined towards supplements. This has triggered the growth of lactase among the manufacturers of dietary supplements in the long run.


Market Synopsis


Many consumers are dependent on dairy as an important source of protein and nutrients. However, around 70% of the Lactase Market population are unable to tolerate lactose, a type of sugar that is naturally present in milk. Thus, the lactose-free category is growing significantly, with numerous new product launches worldwide, in all dairy applications. The main focus is on milk and yogurt, but it is expanding rapidly to other dairy products such as cheese, sour cream, and milk powder. Also, there is an increasing demand for lactase supplements available in various forms and consumption, which may reduce or prevent many of the symptoms that can occur when someone with lactose intolerance consumes dairy. Moreover, continuous R&D on various sources to extract lactase creates several growth opportunities for the lactase industry. However, rising demand for dairy alternatives acts as a restraint for Lactase Market growth.


Market USP


Rising prevalence of lactose-intolerance  


Lactase Market Drivers



  • Growing demand for lactose-free dairy products: The rising lactose-intolerant populations leads to an increased demand for lactose-free dairy products. Lactose-free dairy products are generally lower-calorie profile products due to the removal of sugar; this drives the demand for lactose-free dairy products among the health-conscious population, which is anticipated to foster the demand for lactase among dairy manufacturers.

  • Increasing product launches of lactose-free products

  • Rising demand for dietary supplements among the health-conscious population

  • Increasing product awareness in developing countries


Lactase Market Restraints



  • Rising demand for dairy alternatives


Segmentation


By Source



  • Yeast: The yeast segment is projected to be the largest segment in 2019. Lactase manufacturers mainly offer lactase produced from Kluyveromyces lactis and Kluyveromyces fragilis. Thus, the huge availability of yeast-based lactase drives the segment growth.

  • Fungi

  • Bacteria


By Application



  • Milk: The demand for lactase is increasing among the dairy manufacturers, in which milk is the major contributor. Milk is the most consumed dairy product across the globe. The rising adoption of lactose-free milk over conventional milk is mainly driving the demand for lactase among milk manufacturers.

  • Yogurt

  • Ice Cream

  • Cheese

  • Dietary Supplements

  • Others


By Region



  • North America: North America accounted for the highest share of the global lactase market in 2019, owing to the high prevalence of lactose intolerance among the population. Also, an increasing number of consumers in the region are inclined towards lactase supplements to prevent lactose indigestion. The US is the major market for lactase in North America.

  • Europe

  • Asia-Pacific: Asia-Pacific is the most lucrative market for lactase manufacturers. Increasing lactose-intolerant population, rising awareness of lactose-free products, and increasing per capita disposable income are cumulatively contributing to the growth of the lactase market. High population countries such as China and India are expected to contribute to market growth during the review period significantly.
