Lactoferrin is a multi-functional glycoprotein commonly found in human and bovine milk, saliva, tears, bile and mucus. It binds with iron ions present in the blood and transports it through the body. It is a rich source of antioxidants and aids in improving immunity and preventing bacterial and viral infections. It is also commercially sourced from genetically modified rice and is used as a protein supplement in pharmaceutical medicines to treat stomach and intestinal ulcers, diarrhea and hepatitis C. Lactoferrin also aids in preventing tissue damage and cancer, regulating iron metabolism and minimizing damage caused by aging. As a result, it finds extensive applications across various industries, including pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, nutraceuticals and personal care products.
The increasing prevalence of bacterial and viral infections across the globe represents one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Lactoferrin accelerates bone and joints healing and prevents bone loss caused by various medical ailments. Furthermore, rising health consciousness among the masses, along with the increasing demand for lactoferrin-based nutritional supplements, is also driving the market growth. In line with this, lactoferrin is also widely used in the manufacturing of various cosmetics and personal care products due to its beneficial acne-treating, anti-allergic and anti-aging properties.
