Market Overview

The calcium lactate is a white crystalline salt commercially prepared by the neutralization of calcium carbonate and lactic acid. The carbonate group present in calcium carbonate is displaced by lactic acid, resulting in the formation of calcium lactate. The primary application of calcium lactate is to prevent and treat calcium deficiencies. It can also be used to treat conditions caused by low calcium levels, such as osteoporosis, weak bones, hypoparathyroidism, and latent tetany.

The increasing prevalence of bone diseases, especially among the geriatric population, is likely to drive the demand for calcium lactate during the forecast period. As per the International Osteoporosis Foundation, osteoporosis is estimated to affect over 200 million women worldwide. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2018, about 125 million people were aged 80 and above across the globe, and the number is projected to reach 434 million by 2050.

Calcium is one of the most important nutritional elements for optimal bone and dental health and plays an essential role in our day to day life. A calcium-rich diet is crucial in the development of an infant's bones and among the pregnant women who require calcium-rich food every day to meet their needs. And as the consumption of food alone cannot fulfill these calcium demands, consumers have started to depend on calcium supplements in order to meet these demands, further driving the market growth. However, the availability of other supplement substitutes, such as sodium lactate and potassium lactate, and the risk associated with high consumption of calcium lactate hamper the market growth.
