Global lacto-n-neotetraose Market Overview
Lacto-n-neotetraose is a human milk oligosaccharides (HMO), and it is widely known for its ability to survive the acidic environment of the stomach. Lacto-n-neotetraose act as probiotics, which fortify lower gut colonization by many bifidobacteria species, which is essential for healthy gut function. Lacto-n-neotetraose can be obtained from human breast milk, which is available in limited form due to medical and human limitation. But lacto-n-neotetraose’s demand in beverages (sport, isotonic and energy drink) and dairy products (imitation milks, non-dairy yogurt) is rising. Followed by increasing use of lacto-n-neotetraose in milk products (buttermilk, flavored milk, milk-based meal replacement drinks, unflavored pasteurized and sterilized milk), and processed fruits and fruit juices (Fruit Juices and Nectars) is also boosting the market substantially. Lacto-n-neotetraose produced by microbial fermentation or synthesized oligosaccharides are chemically identical to human milk oligosaccharides and can fulfill this demand. For every end use, the maximum use level is fixed by providing a similar level of lacto-n-neotetraose, which occurs in human breast milk. Considering the current demand of lacto-n-neotetraose in various industry, its market is likely to prosper in the future.
Global lacto-n-neotetraose market is likely to register average higher-digit CAGR over forecast period
The global market of lacto-n-neotetraose is likely to increase in the upcoming forecast period because of its major use in food and beverages and food supplements. According to Fact.MR, its market is likely to grow at an average higher-digit CAGR (compound annual growth rate) in the forecast period considering its global demand. North America dominated the global market for lacto-n-neotetraose in 2018 followed by APEJ. Latin America and Europe region are expected to witness a sizable rise in the overall sales of lacto-n-neotetraose. Countries, including China and Japan, are expected to witness a significant market share of lacto-n-neotetraose as manufacturing companies and research facilities for lacto-n-neotetraose are increasing in these countries.
Increasing demand for lacto-n-neotetraose among various industries
The primary driver of lacto-n-neotetraose market is infant formula or baby formula, which is used as an alternative for breast milk. Food and beverages are also a key driver of lacto-n-neotetraose market followed by food supplements. Lacto-n-neotetraose is also used in dairy products for various applications. However, there are rules and regulations for using lacto-n-neotetraose across multiple food applications. It is a known fact that for a newborn baby breast milk is essential but research about lacto-n-neotetraose safety for new born babies is ongoing. Lacto-n-neotetraose market will increase to a new level if a problem like this is resolved by researchers and manufacturers. Furthermore, in order to match the composition of human breast milk exactly with lacto-n-neotetraose, R&D is required.
