Industry Insights

The global colostrum market size was USD 1.40 billion in 2018 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 3.9% during the forecast period. The rising popularity of these products for boosting muscle strength, lean mass gains, endurance, fat-burning, and strengthening the immunity, especially among bodybuilders is projected to remain a favorable factor.

Colostrum also acts as a superfood for infants as it creates a tough coating on the stomach and intestine for preventing germ attacks. Over the past few years, food and beverage manufacturers have been increasing their expenditure on the development of products through the utilization of various novel milk constituents including, Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMO), galactooligosaccharides, and colostrum.

U.S. colostrum Market

Colostrum is the first form of milk containing antibodies produced by mammals immediately after giving birth. It is a rich source of vitamins, carbohydrates, minerals, fats, growth hormones, digestive enzymes, and disease-fighting proteins. Over the past few years, the product has been gaining popularity due to its nutritional benefits. For instance, the product contains lactoferrin, which boosts the immune system to fights against infection, bacteria, and viruses. This helps heal inflammation and damaged gut in the human body. The antibodies and protein lactoferrin prevent diarrhea associated with viral infections and bacteria. A recent study has proved that bovine colostrum can prevent diarrhea.

Product Insights

The whole colostrum powder segment was valued at USD 691.3 million in 2018. It is expected to dominate the market over the forecast period on account of good shelf life when they are formulated in the manufacturing of various nutritional products for animals and the human body.

The market for skimmed product forms is expected to exceed a CAGR of 4% from 2019 to 2025, attributed to the product’s composition of increased nutritional ingredients including protein.

Global colostrum Market

Animal feed is projected to witness a CAGR of 4.2% from 2019 to 2025. Feeding a small amount of colostrum to calves can prevent the occurrences of diarrhea and enteritis. Furthermore, colostrum can provide critical energy during heat as well as cold stress. The emergence of China and India as manufacturing hubs of broiler meat on a global level owing to high demand from Middle Eastern countries is expected to drive the application of animal feed. This is anticipated to fuel the utility of colostrum as a functional ingredient in near future.
