Market Synopsis

In yeast, fungi, and mammalian small intestines, the enzyme lactase, also known as lactase-phlorizin hydrolase, hydrolyzes beta-galactosides into the simple sugars glucose and galactose. When it is lacking in the gut, lactose intolerance can develop, which causes diarrhea and abdominal pain after consuming dairy products. As a result, lactase is added to ordinary milk to help lactose-intolerant people eat enough milk without experiencing symptoms. Moreover, other dose forms of lactase include drops, capsules, and tablets. In dairy products, lactase changes the sugar to more easily absorbed carbohydrates like galactose and glucose. Growing consumer awareness of overall health and wellness is anticipated to encourage the use of lactase-based milk and milk products, driving up market growth.

The demand for lactose-free dairy products is positively impacted by a considerable increase in the population with lactose intolerance. This is one of the primary causes driving the need for lactase to make lactose-free milk products.

Market Drivers:

The market is growing due to rising product development & innovations in different application sectors and rising demand for lactose-free dairy products. Because lactase is primarily used in the food and beverage industry because it renders dairy products lactose-free by lowering and eliminating the lactose content. One of the main causes driving up product demand is the rising incidence of lactose intolerance worldwide.

Market Restraints:

During the coming few years, the demand for plant-based dairy products such as soy, almond, and coconut milk is projected to restrain the expansion of the lactase market. Nonetheless, it is anticipated that chilled goods will only be available in big metropolitan conurbations due to a lack of infrastructure throughout the demand and supply chains and a lack of suitable storage facilities worldwide, particularly in developing nations. Because most nations lack ports and rely on imports from their neighbors, the length of the supply chain and the tax rate are increased, raising the final price of the goods.  

COVID 19 Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the supply chain due to the global lockdown in some nations. Furthermore, due of the erratic nature of the global economy and financial markets, the coronavirus pandemic reduced demand for chemical intermediates. The lactase market has suffered as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic-related limitations. Lockdowns nationwide and the closure of industrial facilities have hurt the lactase market. The market, however, is predicted to grow at a healthy rate throughout the forecast period due to the global acceptance of new normal conditions and the restart of numerous end-use industries.
