The Global Market for Milk Sugars: milk/whey permeates and lactose

Feb, 06, 2023

(1st Edition to be published in September 2023)

The global market for milk sugars is driven on the supply side by growing raw material availability (more and more milk and whey protein concentrates) and on the demand side by the development of lactose derivatives like lactulose, lactitol and GOS.

This study will address the characteristics of the global markets of lactose, milk and whey permeate:

  • Production by geographical areas and main players
  • Consumption by geographical areas and by application, with a special focus on GOS and HMO as competitor in the infant nutrition sector.
  • Opportunities, supply “gaps” existing in the market and key factors of success for suppliers
