Global Pharmaceutical Grade Lactose Market valued approximately USD 170.2 million in 2017 is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 4.4% over the forecast period 2018-2025.

The Pharmaceutical Grade Lactose market is developing and expanding at a significant pace. The Pharmaceutical Grade lactose is a specific grade of lactose which meets the unbending pharmaceutical prospects. The Pharmaceutical Grade Lactose is composed by concentrating whey or permeates to over-saturate the lactose that is further refined , dried and processed precisely & in a pre-defined manner. The Pharmaceutical grade lactose is made in many customized & specialty ranges to utilize in various (OSDFs)oral solid dosage forms such as dry powder inhalers, sachets, containers and tablets. The lactose could either be in a formless sate or in a crystalline state when in the solid form. In the present scenario, the most common type of crystalline lactose mainly includes a-Lactose monohydrate and B-lactose. The Pharmaceutical Grade lactose market is mainly driven owing to escalating support and approval from the various central government bodies to use pharmaceutical grade lactose as an excipient. As indicated by the 2017, in active ingredient database by the Food & Drug Administration, lactose is considered to be utilized as an excipient for various forms of dosage. In the present scenario, owing to expansive accessibility along with cost adequacy, lactose is constantly being adopted around the world. Moreover, the drug formulation combined with nanotechnology, proficient similarity with active ingredients & different excipients along with rising interest for dry powder inhalers would also pave the development and growth of pharmaceutical grade lactose market on the global scenario.
