Dublin, Nov. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "HMO Market by Type (2' Fl, 3' Fl, 3' Sl, 6' Sl), Application (Infant Formula, Functional Food & Beverages, Food Supplement), Concentration (Acidic, Neutral) & Region (North America, Europe, APAC, South America, RoW) - Global Forecast to 2027" report has been added to's offering.

The global market for HMO market is estimated to be valued at USD 199 million in 2022. It is projected to reach USD 556 million by 2027, recording a CAGR of 22.7% during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is projected to witness a growth of 23.2% during the forecast period

The Asia Pacific region accounts for USD 92.6 Million of the market size in global market for HMO. The region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, retaining its dominance as the leading market for HMOs. Asia Pacific is the most densely populated region consisting of countries like China, India, Japan, Australia & New Zealand, and Others. It is also one of the key markets for HMOs.

China is a dominant market in the region, as it is one of the largest consumers of infant formulas in the world. Hence, any market fluctuation in China is expected to significantly affect the global infant formulas market, which will, in turn, affect the HMO market. China is expected to be the largest market for human milk oligosaccharides (HMO) in 2022.

The country has witnessed high adoption of infant formula crafted with premium ingredients, including HMOs, mainly due to the increasing income level, modernization, and middle-class population. The government in China has started easing its stand on the one-child policy and is allowing couples to have two children. This is expected to increase the number of newborn infants, which will, in turn, boost the demand for HMOs.

The type 2' FL is gaining rapid popularity in the HMO market across the globe

HMOs are known to have Bifidus, a beneficial bacteria species also known as Bifidobacterium. 2'FL selectively grows in intestinal Bifidobacterium because of three different bifidobacterial categories, such as B. dentium, Bifidobacterium bifidum, and B. infantis. On account of their numerous health benefits and a wide array of applications, 2'FL-based HMOs have become popular over the past few years.

Various government agencies are granting their approval for their industrial and commercial use. For instance; in July 2021, according to Taiwan Food and Drug Administration, Taiwan authorized the usage of 2'FL Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMO) in infant formula, milk formula for children aged below seven years, food formula for kids aged below seven years, and growing-up formula. The allowed use of this formula is 1.2g/liter. The 2'FL segment is estimated to dominate the market in 2022, as a result of rigorous and ongoing research in the development of 2'FL-based HMOs by key players.

Extensive R&D activities by infant formula manufacturers

In Infant formula is made from industrially modified. It is intended to be used as a substitute for breast milk and is formulated by manufacturers to mimic the nutritional composition of breast milk for the overall growth and development of infants. According to an article published by the National Library of Medicine in June 2019, from the age of 6 months, an infant's energy and nutrient requirements start to exceed those provided by breast milk.
