Food Intolerance Products Market Overview

The food intolerance products market was valued at $22.5 billion in the year 2020 and is posited to grow at a CAGR of 5.6% over the forecast period of 2021-2026. Food Intolerance products are primarily created and curated for individuals who have difficulty eating certain types of products; for example, dairy, gluten, and sugar are some of the most common allergens. Food intolerance products are created by using the best alternative for the said allergen; for example, soy milk or soy formula is most commonly used in place of milk for those who are lactose intolerant. Diabetic food is yet another example of a food intolerance product. People diagnosed with diabetes should not consume sugar of any form; the products are specially created by using artificial sweeteners instead of fructose or natural sugar. Caffeine products are widely used in applications such as energy drinks, teas, and coffee in daily lives. Although 400mg of caffeine is within one’s limit to consume daily, certain people are allergic to maybe even 5mg. The sensitivity of caffeine is linked to genetics or an inefficient metabolism. Rapid heartbeat, anxiety, restlessness are some of the common symptoms which are seen post caffeine intake. Gluten food allergy is prevalent nowadays, and it happens when a person is allergic to the proteins of wheat, barley, rye, or triticale. An autoimmune disease known as celiac is associated with a gluten allergy; when people suffering from this disease consume gluten, the immune system attacks the digestive system, and the repercussion of this can be fatal. Non-celiac gluten sensitivity is a milder form of the former. It is a gluten intolerance reaction, and approximately 0.5% to 13% of the entire population has the tendency. Salicylates are a naturally occurring chemical found in most foods in consume, fruits, vegetables, coffee, spices, nuts, and honey. Apart from the food, it also found in medications and used as a food preservative.

Moreover, altogether avoiding the salicylates is a rugged option; people who are allergic can opt for food where its presence is on the lower side. Fermentable Oligosaccharides, commonly known as FODMAP, is a short-chain carbohydrate present in apples, fruit cheeses, honey, and others. The small intestine cannot absorb the said product, and it passes on to the large intestine. The bacteria present in the significant intestine break or ferments the FODMAP, thereby causing gas and bloating to an individual. The food intolerance market will grow steadily due to the rising presence of Celiac and Crohn’s disease, along with the increasing awareness of such products for a healthy life.

    Moreover, lactose-free products are set to grow at the fastest CAGR of 5.9% over the forecast period of 2021-2026. It is owing to a rise in “veganism” in most western countries. The adoption of a plant-based diet offers various health benefits. Additionally, 30 million Americans were found to be lactose intolerant, and the numbers are gradually increasing as well.

    Distribution Channel

    The food intolerance market can be segmented into Business to Business and Business to Consumers. The B2C segment dominated the market share in the year 2020. The reason for such demand was owing to the national lockdown spread evenly throughout the year. Gluten-free products, lactose-free products, and diabetic food had all been sold via hypermarkets and supermarkets. Hypermarkets and Supermarkets obliged the demand for these products and provided significant discounts on the billing of such products.

    The B2B segment will continue to grow at the swiftest CAGR of 6.2% over the forecast period of 2021-2026. It is owing to the varieties of various products the following segment can cater to. The products available are provided in Tetra Pak, and their shelf life is on a longer side. Hence, they can be stored in go-downs and also be provided at a steady discount throughout the year.

    Food Intolerance Products Market Segment Analysis - By Geography

    North America held a dominant share of 35% in the year 2020. It is predominantly because of a rising population of lactose intolerant people, which cumulatively accounts for 30 million. Additionally, three million Americans have been diagnosed with celiac disease, which makes a gluten prohibitionary object. Around 40 million of the population is also gluten allergic. Hence, 70 million prospective customers can be alone seen in the USA region.

Of the 60%, around half along belongs to India and China. The advent of fast-food chains and the people’s preference to eat high sugar delicacies have subjugated the cases of diabetes.

    Food Intolerance Products Market Drivers

    Better nutritional value is offered by lactose-free intolerance products than the primitive

    Lactose-Free food is now predominantly in demand owing to various reasons. For one, they are "vegan" in nature, and the rising veganism has further favored their market growth. Secondly, the nutrient value present in the lactose-free products often beats the lactose inherited one. For example, Soy Milk, a lactose-free product, offers the same protein content as whole milk. Pea milk again is at par with whole milk by a contribution of 8grams when the quantity taken is 8 ounces. The nutrient content in plant-based milk, which is mostly lactose-free, has significantly higher amounts of Vitamin A, B12, D, and even E. Similarly, the calcium content present in rice milk, coconut milk, and pea milk is 35% compared to 28% of whole milk. Research in this field have further proven that almond milk provides monosaturated fatty acids, which help in reducing bad cholesterol or LDL. Saturated fats are present in high quantities in cow's milk and can go as high as 5 grams per cup, while lactose-free alternatives like almond milk, oat milk, rice milk, hemp milk, and pea milk have 0 grams of saturated fats. In addition, soy milk, the lactose-free product, contains isoflavones, which help reduces the body's inflammation levels and provide anti-cancer effects. The following factors will help the market in growing forward.

    An increasing prevalence of diabetes and coeliac diseases globally will need food products as an alternative to sustain

    Diabetes has been a silent killer for a significant time, and the global trends depict the same. The incidence rate globally has increased from 11.3 million to 22.9 million, accounting for a 102.9% rise. Or, the total diabetes case has increased from 211.2 million to 492 million in 2019. The highest prevalence was found in China-89.5 million, India-67.8 million, United States- 30.7 million. The deaths follow the same ratio as cases. Diabetic patients are recommended to stop a regular intake of sugar and follow a staple and healthy diet. Hence, the manufacturers have adopted strategies and created niches that only serve such patients. No sugar, sugar-free, reduced sugar are some of the common benchmarks the companies adhere to.

    Another study revealed that wheat allergy, coeliac disease, has become more prominent owing to climate conditions and other factors. The proportion of glutenins has increased by 25% in the years studied, accommodated by higher evaporation and precipitation trends. With an increase in dynamic weather conditions, people are more prone to get gluten allergies as the protein composition evolves.

    Food Intolerance Products Market Challenges

    The alternatives offered by food intolerance products might cause allergic reactions to the prospective clients

    Most lactose-free products are designed to provide maximum health benefits by adapting to the likes of a pea, soy, rice, and others. The newly turned vegan population is although suffering from a “what to choose” problem. For example, cashew milk is a lactose-free product but is void of fibre, minerals, vitamins, and other rich proteins. Although the calorie intake is well under limits, dieticians often do not recommend them. Peanut milk contains omega-6 fatty acids, and excess of these could eventually lead to obesity and inflammation.

    Additionally, the calorie intake for peanut milk is 150 grams per serving. Peanut allergy is regarded as the second most common food allergy, and it occurs in about 1 in 50 children and 1 in 200 adults. Additionally, one out of 200 deaths causes by anaphylaxis is due to peanut allergy. Further reports have suggested that peanuts are a more common food allergen than dairy products, and the anaphylaxis cases due to peanut allergy are more than eggs, cow’s milk, and several others.
