Published : 02 Feb 2022 Industry: Food & Beverage

Lactoferrin market revenue was estimated at USD 234.5 Mn in 2021 and is expected to grow at a steady CAGR of 8% from 2022 to 2032. The market is predicted to reach a global valuation of US$ 546.77 Mn by the end of 2032.

Lactoferrin may have anti-inflammatory effects relevant to the pathophysiology of cases involving COVID-19. The lack of a cure or vaccine in 2020 led to an increase in the demand for immunity boosters. With the increasing popularity of preventive measures for the COVID-19 infection, lactoferrin-based products are expected to see an additional boost in demand in 2020. Lactoferrin-based infant formulas experienced immense demand following the outbreak of COVID-19, especially in Asia Pacific.

Over the forecast period, the lactoferrin market is expected to grow as a result of increased consumer awareness about gut health. This is in addition to the demand for products that reduce intestinal inflammation. Demand for the products is expected to be boosted by brand awareness bolstered by marketing efforts taken by brand owners, as well as the preference for organic products with minimal side effects and higher efficiency.
