Pharmaceutical Grade Lactose Market Worth $254.8 Million By 2025

The global pharmaceutical grade lactose market size is expected to reach USD 254.8 million by 2025 at a 4.6% CAGR during the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Rising inclination toward preventive healthcare across the globe is estimated to boost product use over the forecast period.

Increasing investments by local and foreign players in the pharmaceutical manufacturing sector, especially in developing economies such as India and Brazil, is expected to have a positive influence on industry growth. Furthermore, increased access to medication through generic drug production and development of innovative treatments for chronic diseases has resulted in the growth of the drug manufacturing industry, thereby propelling product demand.

Raw material prices and operational and transportation costs are key factors that define final product price. Intense competition in the industry is expected to put pressure on prices, resulting in a decline in product price. In addition, higher product prices have lowered buyers’ interest, owing to availability of substitutes, which is also expected to hamper growth.

Stringent government regulations associated with the use of pharmaceutical grade lactose are expected present a barrier to entry of new players in the market. In addition, high initial cost and operation cost associated with production machinery is expected to further discourage new entrants, thereby lowering their threat.

The industry is characterized by presence of major industry players focussing on research and development activities in order to reduce overall manufacturing cost by using innovative techniques. Participants have been adopting competitive strategies such as setting up new manufacturing facilities to magnify their regional presence.
