Lactase, also known as lactase-phlorizin hydrolase, belongs to the β-galactosidase family. It is a metalloenzyme produced by several organisms. Lactase enzyme is present in the brush border of the small intestine of humans and various mammals. It is produced by the intestinal epithelial cells lining the small intestine through the instructions provided by the LCT gene. Lactase enzyme functions to break down the sugar molecule lactose into components known as glucose and galactose monomers. Lactose is a sugar molecule present in milk and milk products, digested in the intestine by the action of lactase enzyme. The deficiency of lactase enzyme in the human body leads to the inability of the complete digestion of lactose causing lactose intolerance. Advancement in technology has led to the commercial production of probiotics, lactose-free milk, lactase pills, and other lactase rich substances by the use of lactase enzyme obtained from other sources.

COVID-19 Scenario Analysis

  • The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the commercial production of lactase enzyme due to the initial shutdown of manufacturing units and shortage of manpower.
  • The export and import ban implemented in several countries has disrupted the global supply chain of the lactase market.
  • The lactase market has initially faced uncertainty due to the domestic transportation restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown scenario. The procurement of lactase for the utilization of processed products has become challenging.
  • The lactase market is anticipated to be a profitable post-COVID scenario due to the increased inclination of consumers toward immunity-boosting dairy products. Dairy associations in China have formulated guidelines for dairy consumption to boost immunity, which includes the consumption of lactose-free milk for lactose-intolerant people. 

Top Impacting Factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers, and Impact Analysis

Lactase is a natural transmembrane protein present in the intestine of mammals. It causes diffusion of sugar monomers in the bloodstream providing essential nutrients for nourishment. Increase in R&D activities toward the production of lactase from external sources for processed food & beverages contributes toward the growth of the market. Increasing lactose intolerance in adults, increasing health & fitness consciousness, utilization of lactase in dairy products, high requirement of lactose-free products, synthesis of lactase from microorganisms, increased commercial production of lactase enzyme, investment in R&D, investment in technology & automation, new product development, production of probiotics & prebiotics, environmental applications of lactase, utilization of lactase in cheese making, production of byproducts by using lactase enzymes, plant sources of lactase enzymes, application of lactase in the pharmaceutical industry, availability of various species for lactase extraction, government initiatives, sustainable processing, lactase utilization in nutraceutical, lactase enzyme supplements, health benefits of lactase, government initiatives, and increasing disposable income are the key drivers which lead the growth of lactase market. However, costly lactose-free milk, high cost of the enzyme, increased competition, traditional beliefs & practices, availability of alternative products, and government restrictions hinder the market growth.

The global lactase market trends are as follows:

Application of lactase enzyme

The lactose intolerance condition is increasing rapidly in adults leading to gastrointestinal conditions such as abdominal bloating, flatulence, irritable bowel syndrome, and diarrhea. Decreasing specific activity of lactase in adults has led to difficulty in the consumption of milk and milk products, which are a rich source of calcium, vitamin D, riboflavin, and proteins. Therefore, the commercial production of lactase enzymes from bacteria, yeast, fungi, and plants has presented its utilization in dairy products, which can be directly consumed by lactose-intolerant people. Most commonly utilized species used for commercial production of lactase enzymes are Kluyveromyces lactis, Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus oryzae, and Escherichia coli.

The application of lactase enzyme is widely in lactose-free milk; cheese making; yogurt; ice creams; whey syrups; waste utilization; prebiotics & probiotics; enzyme supplements, tablets, & pills; additional sweetener; and reducing crystallization of ice creams. According to FAO, probiotics are “living microorganisms that, when administered in sufficient amounts, confer a health benefit to host.” Probiotics consist of lactase producing bacteria such as lactobacillus, bifidobacterium, and enterococcus considered safe for human consumption.
