[205 Pages Report] According to MarketsandMarkets, the lactose-free products market is estimated to be valued at USD 12.1 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 18.4 billion by 2025, recording a CAGR of 8.7 %, in terms of value. Factors such as the increasing awareness of lactose intolerance among consumers across regions and the growing demand for reduced added sugar or no added sugar products are projected to drive the growth of the lactose-free products industry during the forecast period. However, the growth of the lactose-free products market is inhibited by factors, such as high cost of lactose-free products and stiff competition from plant-based alternatives.

Lactose-Free Products Market

Market Dynamics

Drivers: Growing lactose intolerant population, awareness and self-diagnosis

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), nearly 65% of the global population is prone to lactose intolerance. Thus, this has led to an increase in the production of lactose-free products. It has also been observed that lactose intolerance is witnessed in nearly 90% of adults in East Asia. In addition, the increase in health awareness and wellness concerns among consumers is a key factor that is projected to drive the growth and demand for lactose-free products. Moreover, according to the US National Library of Medicine, lactose intolerance is prevalent in adults, and 30 million adults in the US have symptoms of lactose intolerance by the age of 20 years. However, in African Americans, the problem of lactose intolerance can occur early at the age of 2 years.

The sales of lactose-free products have increased significantly in Europe and the US in recent years due to the increase in self-diagnosed cases of lactose intolerance among consumers. However, lactose-free products are gaining traction in the Asia Pacific region, as consumers are becoming more concerned about their health and investing in self-diagnosis in the region, which is projected to support the growth of the lactose-free market during the forecast period.

Restraints: High price of lactose-free products

For the production of lactose-free milk, the milk has to be treated with ultra-high temperature (UHT) method of the pasteurization process for increasing its shelf-life and improving the consistency of milk while turning it into lactose-free milk. For turning the normal milk to lactose-free milk, the milk is treated with lactase enzymes for breaking the complex lactose disaccharide into two simple sugars, namely, glucose and (monosaccharides) galactose. This process of converting the milk into lactose-free milk increases the price of lactose-free dairy products as compared to normal packaged dairy products. Due to these factors, lactose-free milk is offered under the premium product category, which caters to a smaller consumer population, wherein ordinary milk is a commodity offered at cost-effective prices, due to which it is consumed by a large-scale population.

Opportunities: Availability of lactose-free products with added health benefits

The increase in innovations in lactose-free dairy products has led to a rise in health benefits offered by lactose-free dairy products, which represents key growth opportunities for the lactose-free dairy market. The claims in lactose-free dairy products, such as gluten-free and low/no/reduced sugar, help in expanding the consumer base. The innovations are being witnessed around digestive health, such as lactose-free milk products with probiotics. For instance, Activia is a probiotic yogurt introduced by Danone Company S.A. (France), which contains probiotics that improve digestive health. Probiotics are bacteria that have been scientifically studied and proved that if they are consumed in sufficient amounts, they help in providing health benefits beyond basic nutrition. In addition, The Coca-Cola Company (US) under its brand Fairlife LLC provided lactose-free milk with Omega-3, which helps in improving brain health. These innovations are projected to drive the growth of the market.

Dairy manufacturers are capitalizing on this trend to expand their consumer base by promoting easy digestion, lower fat, and sugar content, developing a variety of products by mixing lactose-free ingredients with healthy ingredients, such as vitamins, proteins, and fibers, for providing a wide range of choice to consumers. The inclination of consumers toward healthy choices of food & beverages is increasing globally. The willingness of consumers to pay extra for food & beverages with health features is growing. This creates growth opportunities for lactose-free products in the dairy industry during the forecast period.

Challenges: Stiff competition from plant-based alternatives  

Lactose intolerant consumers across the world have become conscious about their health, as they are aware of allergies or gastrointestinal diseases caused by the intake of lactose in their bodies. The major challenges for lactose-free products are plant-based alternatives as the demand for plant-based products is increasing and their availability in the market is rising as compared to that of lactose-free products. For instance, plant-based milk, such as soy milk, rice milk, almond milk, coconut-based milk, cashew milk, and oat milk, are increasingly present in the market. Therefore, lactose intolerant population focuses on opting for plant-based products as an alternative for lactose-free products. Furthermore, plant-based products have high nutritional value. For instance, soy milk is original plant-based milk, which constitutes 8 grams of carbohydrates, 7 grams of protein, and 100 calories in an 8-ounce pour. It is also a preferred alternative for those adhering to a diet lower in fats as it contains only 4 grams of fat with only 5 grams of saturated fat and is also low in sugar. Almond milk is one of the most widely consumed plant-based milk in North America, the EU, and Australia. In addition, doctors suggest that almond milk is an effective alternative for children and adults who suffer from allergies or intolerances to milk. However, people are shifting their interest from dairy products to plant-based products, as they are turning vegan these days. In addition, various health experts recommend plant-based diets to people who have heart problems, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and other health conditions.

By type, the milk segment is projected to account for the largest share in the lactose-free products market during the forecast period

Lactose- free milk is a rich source of protein, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin B12, riboflavin, and vitamin D. Lactose-free milk is produced by adding lactase to regular cow’s milk. The lactose-free milk tastes sweeter than regular milk because during the process of production lactase is added to lactose-free milk that helps in breaking down of lactose into two sugar forms namely; glucose and galactose. This is the key factor driving the growth of milk segment in market.

By form, no added sugar or reduced sugar claims segment is projected to be the fastest growing segment in the lactose-free products market during the forecast period

By form, the no added sugar or reduced sugar claims segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment. Due to the increase in awareness about health concerns, such as obesity and diabetes, consumers witness a high demand for no added sugar or reduced sugar products. For catering to the changing demands of consumers, many players in the dairy industry are focusing on introducing lactose-free dairy products with reduced added sugar or no added sugar claims. The trend of using reduced added sugar or no added sugar drives the lactose-free products market.

Lactose-Free Products Market APAC Region

Asia Pacific is projected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period

The Asia Pacific region is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. The significant growth of the economy in countries, rapid urbanization, an increase in demand for expensive and healthy food & beverage products, the increase in the westernization of consumer diets are some of the major factors driving the growth of lactose-free products in the region.
