Global Lactase Market to Grow at 5.88% During 2024-2032, Bolstered by Rising Prevalence of Lactose Intolerance

April 12, 2021 | Food & Beverages

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Lactase Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2024-2032,” the global lactase market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.88% during 2024-2032. Also known as lactase-phlorizin hydrolase, lactase is an enzyme found in the liver, kidney, and small intestine of mammals that catalyzes the breakdown of lactose into glucose and galactose. Its production declines after the weaning phase in humans, thereby making them lactose intolerant, which is the inability to digest milk. As a result, lactase is consumed along with milk or milk products to prevent symptoms, such as cramps, gas, bloating and diarrhea.

Global Lactase Market Trends:

A considerable rise in the number of individuals suffering from lactose intolerance is catalyzing the demand for lactose-free dairy products, such as ice cream and cheese, across the globe. This, in turn, is positively influencing the global lactase market growth. Apart from this, liquid lactase finds application in the pharmaceutical industry for manufacturing syrups and tonics. Moreover, the growing consciousness about health and wellness among the masses is encouraging the adoption of lactase pills that are consumed to ease irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms. The market is further driven by the introduction of new delivery forms, such as strength caplets and fast-acting chewable tablets. Besides this, the rising awareness about healthy digestion, in confluence with the proper functioning of the immune system, is anticipated to fuel the market growth.

Market Summary:

  • Based on the source, the market has been segregated into fungi, yeast, and bacteria.
  • On the basis of the form, the market has been bifurcated into powder and liquid lactase.
  • Based on the application, the market has been divided into food and beverages (milk, cheese, yogurt, and others), dietary supplements, and pharmaceuticals.
