Lactoferrin Market Size worth $403.0 Million By 2028 | CAGR: 8.1%

The global lactoferrin market size is expected to reach USD 403.0 million by 2028, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Lactoferrin Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Application (Food & Beverages, Infant Formula, Sports & Functional Food, Pharmaceuticals, Personal Care Products); By Function; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2021 - 2028” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.


Increasing application of lactoferrin in infant formulations, food supplements, non-alcoholic beverages, and dietetic food is expected to be the major force behind the growth of the global industry during the forecast period. The rise in skin problems such as acne, increasing consumption of cosmetics products, and the awareness about the medicinal benefits of such products are expected to further drive the growth of the global industry over the coming years.


Lactoferrin is extensively helpful in infant formulation. Globally breastfeeding has decreased for infants after six months of age. In the U.S., only half of the infants (approximately 55%) are receiving breastfeeding and this will cause a significant nutritional deficiency in infants. Hence there is enormous demand for healthy infant formulations.


Acne is one of the major skin problems that affect nearly 50 million people annually in the U.S. alone. The use of lactoferrin in cosmetic products will improve the condition due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. All these factors augment the growth of this industry.
