Restraints: High price of lactose-free products
For the production of lactose-free milk, the milk has to be treated with ultra-high temperature (UHT) method of the pasteurization process for increasing its shelf-life and improving the consistency of milk while turning it into lactose-free milk. For turning the normal milk to lactose-free milk, the milk is treated with lactase enzymes for breaking the complex lactose disaccharide into two simple sugars, namely, glucose and (monosaccharides) galactose. This process of converting the milk into lactose-free milk increases the price of lactose-free dairy products as compared to normal packaged dairy products. Due to these factors, lactose-free milk is offered under the premium product category, which caters to a smaller consumer population, wherein ordinary milk is a commodity offered at cost-effective prices, due to which it is consumed by a large-scale population.

By type, the milk segment is projected to account for the largest share in the lactose-free products market during the forecast period
Lactose- free milk is a rich source of protein, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin B12, riboflavin, and vitamin D. Lactose-free milk is produced by adding lactase to regular cow’s milk. The lactose-free milk tastes sweeter than regular milk because during the process of production lactase is added to lactose-free milk helps in breaking down of lactose into two sugar forms namely; glucose and galactose. This is the key factor driving the growth of milk segment in market.
