Lactose price in the United States was in the range of 0.3600 to 0.4700 USD/lb in March 2022. While the majority of industry contacts believe that the inventories are substantial, their assessments of the market's tone and trajectory may vary. Lactose looks to be establishing a market that is multimodal in nature.
According to several contacts, producers are increasing their offerings and end customers are easily able to obtain things at the lower end of the pricing range. They observe the market continue to deteriorate from their vantage point.
Other reports indicate a return of interest and inquiries from buyers worldwide. Certain overseas providers have a restricted supply and charge substantially more for lactose than in the United States. As a result, some consumers are willing to pay a premium for domestically manufactured lactose.
Demand for lactose with a finer mesh and the one that meets more stringent end-user specifications is increasing. From this vantage point, it appears as though the carbohydrate’s market is gaining traction. Contracts for the second quarter settled at a premium to the first quarter's prices. Lactose production was rather stable.
