Food allergy/intolerance products market could hit $26.5 bn in five years
A new study from Global Industry Analysts (GIA), Inc., San Jose, Calif., looks at the worldwide markets for food allergy and intolerance products in the U.S. in terms of gluten-free and others. The report provides separate comprehensive research on the U.S., Europe and more. Growth in demand for these products has been driven by the occurrence of more food allergies and sensitivities, particularly in the U.S., where the incidence of food allergies is estimated to have grown by about 18.5% over the last 10 years.
The report profiles 130 companies including many key and niche players, such as Amy’s Kitchen, Inc., Alpro UK Ltd., Doves Farm Foods Ltd., Ener-G Foods, Inc., and many more. The report singles out lactose-free products as an area of particular growth, as 35- to 50 million Americans are thought to be lactose-intolerant.
