Lactose-Free Dairy Products Market Outlook    

The global lactose-free dairy products market is growing continually. Market growth attributes to the rising prevalence of lactose intolerance disorder worldwide. The lack of lactase triggers the inability to absorb lactose or lactose malabsorption, leading to symptoms of lactose intolerance, including diarrhea and bloating.  Besides, the rising popularity of plant-based dairy worldwide drives the market growth. Moreover, the growing consumption of lactose-free dairy products in the food and beverage industries accelerates the market.

Market Research Future (MRFR), in its recent COVID-19 analysis, the lactose-free dairy products market size is expected to enlist a CAGR of 6.17% from 2020 to 2027 and arrive at USD 21.23 billion before the finish of 2027.  Pervasively rising lactose intolerance disorder among people boosts the growth of the market predominantly.

Additionally, increasing health-conscious populaces and rising consumer inclination toward vegan diets create enormous market demand. Furthermore, advances in manufacturing technologies are anticipated to foster the growth of the market. Increased shelf life of alternative dairy products compared to traditional dairy products is a crucial factor in increasing consumer preferences. Besides, substantial R&D investments drive market growth exponentially. Availability of convenient packaging and the expansion of distribution channels such as eCommerce platforms drive market sales further. Increasing consumption of frozen desserts like lactose-free yogurts and ice creams fuels the growth of the market.

On the other hand, the availability of various counterfeited, low-cost products is a key factor projected to impede market growth. Nevertheless, increasing consumer inclination towards vegan diets would support the growth of the market throughout the review period, creating enormous market demand. Also, increasing consumption of lactose-free dairy in the burgeoning food industry, including bakeries and confectionaries, provides impetus to the growth of the market.
