Market Overview:

The global A2 milk market is estimated to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period (2023-2030)

There are two variants of beta-casein protein in cow milk – a1 and a2. Milk that contains only a2 beta-casein protein is known as a2 milk. A2 milk is obtained from specific breeds of cows that produce the beta-casein protein in their milk with a proline at number 67. These cows are older breeds and are found mostly in India. A2 milk is generally beneficial to health. Regular milk produces BCM-7 (beta casomorphin 7) during digestion, altering gastrointestinal function and increasing inflammation in the gut. However, proline in A2 milk restricts BCM-7 from entering the body. Moreover, A2 milk is easier to digest than regular milk and, thus, is safe for the human body. Health advantages attract consumers towards A2 milk which drives the growth of the market.

Market Dynamics:

Increasing health consciousness among consumers is expected to drive the A2 milk market

Factors such as increasing preference for A2 milk, increasing health consciousness, the rapid spread of knowledge related to health and well-being through social media platforms, traditional advertising mediums, and an increase in consumer spending in developing regions are driving the growth of the A2 milk market. Moreover, the introduction of food and beverage policies that mandate the companies to display ingredients and nutritional values on product packaging plays a major role in helping consumers for healthier alternatives. Research studies have shown an increase in gastrointestinal-related problems in some people consuming A1 beta-casein-containing milk. Also, the consumption of A2 milk indicated minimal or no gastrointestinal problems or discomfort. A2 milk is easily digested compared to A1 milk, and thus is being widely preferred over A1 milk across the globe leading to market growth. A2 milk has nutritional benefits such as higher protein content, easy digestibility, a rich source of calcium, essential vitamins and minerals, etc., and is also free of antibiotics and hormones. Due to such health advantages, a surge in demand for A2 milk is being observed globally. Also, increasing health awareness and growing disposable income has led to a preference for A2 milk over conventional milk. A2 milk is also being preferred for manufacturing other dairy products and infant formula due to its easy digestibility and other health benefits. The increasing demand for dairy products thus augments the demand for A2 milk globally.
