Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) Market Size & Growth (2019-2024):

The Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) Market is estimated at USD xx billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR rate of xx% until 2024.Growing formulas for children are one of the critical drivers of development. An increasing population of children is expected to increase infant food consumption, having a positive effect on Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) production.

Infant formula and baby food, Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) are primarily used. Human milk is an abundant GOS source known to induce high levels of bifidobacteria and to reduce the number of potential breast-food pathogenic bacteria significantly. In compliance with Sections201(s) of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, GOS was granted the General Status of GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe).

According to Article 13 of Regulation (EC) No. 1924/2006 of the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA), substantiated health claims related to a reduction in gastrointestinal disadvantage and potentially pathogenic microorganisms are made. The growing population of children is expected to raise infant formula consumption, which has a positive effect on the market for Galacto-oligosaccharides .Due to the high demand for infant formula, dried baby food, the global baby food market has produced more than 50 billion USD in 2015.

In 2018, the United States led an 85.8 per cent share of North America's Galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) market.
