Refined-edible Grade Lactose Segment to Exhibit Immense Growth Backed by Demand from Infant Formula Industry
In terms of purity, the market is fragmented into refined-edible grade lactose, edible lactose, and crude lactose. Out of these, the edible grade lactose segment had acquired 27.1% lactose market share in 2018. However, the refined-edible grade lactose segment had generated the highest revenue in 2018 and had lead the market. It is widely used in the infant formula and pharmaceutical industries. Several prominent players are offering novel products, such as dry-blend infant-grade lactose. It is, in turn, increasing demand for refined-edible grade lactose. Additionally, these industries have set up a few strict specification requirements for this type of lactose that requires additional steps for purification. All these factors are likely to propel this segment in the coming years.
