Drivers and Restraints

Soaring Demand for Infant-Grade Food to Usher in Innovations

Stakeholders expect the lactose market share to gain impetus during the forecast period, largely due to the surging demand for infant formula. Moreover, dipping breastfeeding rates in advanced economies could add fillip to the industry growth. End-users are likely to exhibit demand for infant-grade lactose following the shift in living standards amidst economic growth. The pharmaceutical sector could be the major recipient of infant formula products.

COVID-19 Impact

Panic-buying in 2020 Led to Supply Chain Disruptions

Although the ravage of the COVID-19 pandemic was pronounced in most industries, the dairy sector exhibited resilience. The trend was majorly attributed to dairy foods categorized under “essential goods/foods” in most countries. Panic buying in advanced and emerging economies led to a surge in the demand for the dairy product. Prominently, the Global Dairy Trade trading platform witnessed a rise in the number of lactose bidders during the 2020 auction. Moreover, stocking up on essential materials also led to a rise in prices.
