The global lactase market grew at a CAGR of around 6% during 2015-2020. Lactase, also known as lactase-phlorizin hydrolase, is an enzyme naturally found in yeast, fungi and the small intestines of mammals, which hydrolyzes beta(β)-galactosides into simple sugar glucose and galactose. Its deficiency in the gut can lead to the development of lactose intolerance, which results in abdominal cramping and diarrhea after ingesting milk products. Consequently, lactase is added to regular milk for preventing the symptoms of lactose intolerance and enables individuals to consume adequate amounts of milk. Lactase is also available in different dosage forms, including drops, capsules and tablets.
A significant rise in the number of individuals suffering from lactose intolerance is positively influencing the demand for lactose-free dairy products. This represents one of the key factors positively influencing the lactase demand to produce lactose-free milk products. Moreover, the growing awareness about health and wellness among individuals is promoting the adoption of lactase pills, which are taken before consuming dairy products to help ease irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms. Apart from this, as liquid lactase has better functionality and high activity, it is finding extensive application in the pharmaceutical industry for manufacturing syrups and tonics. The leading market players are also introducing new delivery forms, such as strength caplets and fast-acting chewable tablets, to prevent lactose digestion problems like gas, nausea and stomachache. Furthermore, the growing awareness among individuals about healthy digestion and proper functioning of the immune system is anticipated to drive the market. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global lactase market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
