Increasing consumer awareness towards the adoption of healthy dietary practices is possible to raise the demand for superfood ingredients like lactoferrin in the upcoming years. Rising awareness about animal health and nutrition should additionally promote market development.

Around 25% of the global population suffers from anemia because of iron deficiency. Lactoferrin supplements are an enhanced and secure solution to treat anemia, as they control metabolism and iron absorption. The percentage of lactose intolerant population has been increasing, and lactose intolerance can lead to iron deficiency. Lactoferrin supplements do not contain lactose and therefore, are a feasible source of iron for lactose-intolerant customers. This is expected to drive the development of the lactoferrin market in the upcoming years.

The increasing cost of lactoferrin raises the overall price of the final products, which is likely to restrict its uses in various end-use applications. However, increasing efforts by the governments of various nations and organizations, who work for the benefits of women and infants across the world to encourage breastfeeding, may control the use of lactoferrin-based infant formula products to some extent throughout the evaluation period. Moreover, the perception among customers that the utilization of bovine lactoferrin may lead to the transmission of mad cow disease may further limit the use of lactoferrin products among customers, thereby hampering the lactoferrin market demand.

Some Noted Developments Considered in the Report:

  • June 2019 - Freedom Foods declared that it would start the manufacturing of lactoferrin at its Australia plant in the last quarter of 2019 and look forward to it in the Asia Pacific region by the first quarter of 2020.
  • January 2020 - Freedom Foods declared the launch of an immune shot that integrates lactoferrin with manuka honey and vitamin C.

COVID-19 Impact on Global Lactoferrin Market

The QMI team has closely monitored the impact of COVID-19 on the global lactoferrin market, and it is observed that the demand for lactoferrin has increased during the pandemic time. It is anticipated to grow at a healthy pace from mid-2021. To control the pandemic, many countries across the globe have enforced strict lockdown norms, which have hampered all kinds of business activities.

The COVID-19 pandemic is a severe global health hazard caused by severe acute respiratory syndromes of coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV- 2). Symptoms of COVID-19 are highly variable with the usual hyperactivity of immune reaction known as a “cytokine storm”. This enormous release of inflammatory cytokines into the pulmonary alveolar structure is an important cause of mortality during COVID-19 infection.

Current management of COVID-19 is supportive, and there is no ordinary clinical protocol applicable to suppress this pathological state. Lactoferrin, an iron-binding protein, is a first-line of defense protein that exists in neutrophils and excretory fluids of all mammals and is well-accepted for its importance in the maturation and regulation of the immune system function. All these factors are mentioned and analyzed in details in this report.

Apolactoferrin is the dominating segment in the global market due to the outstanding properties displayed by it, including antimicrobial properties and the capability to prevent lipid peroxidation.

The wide availability of apolactoferrin can be justified by the fact that aplolatoferrin comprises nearly 90% of the lactoferrin found in human milk.

All these factors are contributing to the development of the market.

Global Lactoferrin Market, By Function

By function, the global lactoferrin market is segmented into iron absorption, anti-inflammatory, intestinal flora protection, antibacterial, immune cell stimulation, and antioxidants. The iron absorption segment is anticipated to drive the market. The iron-binding property of lactoferrin imparts a bacteriostatic effect, which promotes its use in the treatment of anemia and other disorders caused by iron deficiency. On the other hand, its ability to enhance the function of the immune system cells helps in lowering inflammatory reaction in the human body, thereby promoting the utilization of the product and market development.
