The global milk mineral concentrate market size was valued at USD 103.0 million in 2021. The market is projected to grow from USD 105.6 million in 2022 to USD 145.1 million by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period. The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with milk mineral concentrate experiencing higher-than-anticipated demand across all regions compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on our analysis, the global milk mineral concentrate market exhibited a higher growth of 5.5% in 2020 as compared to 2019.


Milk mineral concentrates are obtained by filtering whey, a byproduct obtained in cheese production. The whey is fractionated by several isolation techniques, dried, and then ground into fine powders. These are rich in calcium, potassium, sodium, and other essential minerals and are used to provide nutrition by adding them to infant formulas, nutritional foods, beverages, and so on.


The rising prevalence of bone-related disorders, such as osteoporosis and osteopenia, among the population is a significant factor propelling the demand for the calcium-rich foods and beverages. Calcium deficiency is increasing globally due to several factors such as insufficient calcium intake, medications that decrease calcium absorption, autoimmune disorders, and several other factors.



  • For instance, according to an article published by Bone Health and Osteoporosis Foundation (BHOF) in 2021, it is estimated that around 10 million Americans have osteoporosis, and around 44 million are at high risk for its development due to low bone mass.


The paradigm shift toward nutritional foods and supplements owing to increasing awareness about health and wellness among the population globally is leading to an increased demand for these foods and beverages. This is resulting in increasing application of milk calcium in various food products and beverages for nutritional purposes.



  • For instance, according to a 2021 report published by Mintel, one in five consumers buy functional foods and drinks for their anti-inflammatory benefits and metabolic health.


Additionally, the rising focus of government authorities on fortification of food products, infant formulas, and other products in countries such as China is increasing the awareness and consumption of such products. These initiatives and focus are projected to fuel the global market. Similar initiatives have also facilitated the growth of the Milk Protein Concentrates (MPC) market.



  • For instance, in February 2021, the National Health Commission of the People’s Republic of China and the State Administration for Market Regulation issued the Standard GB 10765 - 2021 (the National Food Safety - Infant Formula), which will be implemented in February 2023.


Moreover, the increasing research and development activities by the market players widening the application areas of the concentrates to cater the unmet needs of the population are anticipated to fuel the global milk mineral concentrate market growth.


COVID-19 IMPACT 


Higher Price of Raw Materials and Products amid COVID-19 Pandemic Augmented the Market 


The COVID-19 impact on the market growth was positive during the forecast period. The demand for milk and other dairy products increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. The procurement of raw materials and ingredients by the producers of milk mineral concentrates was slightly hampered due to slight disruptions in the supply chain and logistics.


The higher demand for milk and dairy products among the population coupled with lower production of milk and other products resulted in higher raw materials prices. These factors led to decreased sales volume of products with higher ASP, thereby generating higher revenues. The market players witnessed growth in revenue generated during 2020.



  • For instance, Arla Foods Ingredients Group P/S generated a revenue of USD 12,671.4 million in 2020 compared to USD 12,532.1 million in 2019. The increase was due to the increased demand for specialized ingredients across the globe and higher prices of the materials sold.


The restrictions on import and export and shortage of laborers resulted in slight logistics disruptions among the key players in the market. However, the companies implemented various strategies to recover their operations in a short time.



  • In 2021, FrieslandCampina DOMO completed its three-year Supply Chain Unlock optimization program with an aim to focus on improving its supply chain for cost savings, cash flow improvements, and optimization of the production network.


Thus, the overall COVID-19 impact on the pandemic was positive on the global market, with slight disruptions in the supply chain due to lower production of milk and other dairy products. The increased ASP of the products positively impacted the revenues generated by the major players operating in the market. Additionally, the increasing number of launches and approvals of products by the key players contributed to the growth of the market in 2021.


LATEST TRENDS

Shifting Consumer Preference to Transform Consumption of Fortified Products


The rising health consciousness and the disorders owing to lack of nutrient intake among the population are leading to increasing adoption of dietary supplements, fortified beverages, and foods globally.



  • According to a 2021 survey published by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) survey, around two-thirds of Americans are now prioritizing eating food with fortified minerals and other nutrients owing to the rising prevalence of deficiency disorders.


Similarly, the rising initiatives of governments to update the guidelines and adhere to the quality of the products manufactured by the market players are increasing the research and activities of these players to develop and launch products with a wider range of applications such as gut health, and immunity, among others.


Therefore, consumer preference shifting toward more nutritious food products is expected to fuel the demand for milk mineral concentrate production for calcium fortification of various food products and beverages.


DRIVING FACTORS


Growing Prevalence of Bone-related Disorders Especially among Geriatric Population to Fuel Market Growth


The global prevalence of disorders such as osteoporosis, osteopenia, and other mineral deficiency disorders is rising among the population. With the growing geriatric population, the prevalence is also increasing.



  • For instance, according to a 2021 population-based study published by the Journal of Orthopedic Surgery and Research, the overall prevalence of osteoporosis in older men and women in the world is around 35.3%.

  • Similarly, according to a 2018 article published by the Asian Federation of Osteoporosis, the number of osteoporotic hip fractures is estimated to increase from 1.2 million in 2018 to 2.6 million in 2050 in Asian countries. 


The rising number of children and adults with calcium deficiency is rising globally due to several reasons, such as insufficient calcium intake in the diet, underlying medical conditions such as autoimmune disorders, and medications lowering calcium absorption in individuals.



  • For instance, according to an article published by the Oregon State University in 2020, around 40% of the U.S. population, especially older children, adolescents, and women, have inadequate calcium intake levels.


Thus, calcium deficiency among the population is increasing the prevalence of bone-related disease, creating an unmet need for treatment. These factors are leading to an increased demand for calcium-fortified foods and dietary supplements to fulfill the recommended dietary intake of calcium and other minerals.


Also, the increasing awareness among the population regarding health and interest in leading a healthy lifestyle is resulting in increased consumption of calcium-fortified food products and beverages.


To fulfill the need for micronutrients and minerals, an increasing number of individuals are opting for functional foods such as supplements in the form of powder, syrup, or tablets in their daily diet to significantly reduce the chances of developing health complications. This is considered to be one of the major attributes favorable that drive the market.


Increasing Applications of Milk Minerals in Nutrition and Food Sectors to Accelerate Market Growth


Milk mineral concentrates are used to manufacture baked goods, beverages, and other nutritional products to meet the deficiency of calcium intake among the population across the globe.


Continuous efforts of the major market players to research and develop new products with a wider range of applications to meet the population's demand is another factor contributing to the growth of the market.

RESTRAINING FACTORS


Growing Inclination of Consumers toward Vegan Food to Hamper Market Growth 


The rising consumer inclination toward a healthy lifestyle is shifting the demand and preference between plant-based or vegan products from conventionally processed meat products which are also restraining the demand for dairy products.


The preference shift toward the consumption of vegan food among the population in developed and emerging countries is increasing due to many factors. According to a 2021 report published by article published by the Guardian, there is around a 40% increase in the number of vegans in the U.K. and the total number is around 1.5 million. 


Additionally, plant-based alternatives are now considered nutritious and superior choice of milk, resulting in decreasing consumption of dairy milk and products in developed countries such as the U.S., the U.K., and others.


All these factors, when coupled with ethical and environmental reasons, the preference for vegan food among the population is leading to an increased demand for plant-based products. This is also resulting in a higher number of mergers and acquisitions among plant-based food companies.



  • In November 2021, Royal DSM entered into an agreement with Vestkorn Milling, a Norwegian plant-based protein ingredients manufacturer, owing to the rising demand for vegan and vegetarian food products. Similarly, in April 2021, JBS S/A, one of the largest Brazilian meat processing companies, entered into an agreement to acquire Vivera, a European plant-based food company.


Therefore, the rising health-conscious population across the regions and increasing demand for vegan food products are some factors limiting the demand for dairy-based products and beverages. These factors are anticipated to restrain the growth of the global market during the forecast period.
