Pharmaceutical grade lactose is a specialized grade of lactose that meets the rigid pharmaceutical expectations. It is produced by concentrating whey or permeate to over-saturate the lactose, which is then further refined, dried, and milled properly. Pharmaceutical grade lactose is manufactured in different specialty and customized range to use in various oral solid dosage forms (OSDFs) such as tablets, capsules, sachets, dry powder inhalers and others.

Rising approval from government bodies to use pharmaceutical grade lactose as an excipient is the primary driver for pharmaceutical grade lactose market. Due to broad availability and cost effectiveness, lactose is getting great acceptance across the world. According 2017 updated inactive ingredient database by FDA, lactose is approved to use as an excipient for different dosage forms.

Other push factors such as, compatibility with active ingredients and other excipients, and increasing demand for dry powder inhalers (DPI) products are also fuelling the growth of the market. With the increasing advancement, the usage of dry powder inhalers is also expanding for the delivery of different drugs. Using DPI technique an effective plasma concentration of levonorgestrel drug can be exceeded over a period of 16-60 hours in comparison to the oral delivery. According to FDA, lactose along with glucose and mannitol can be used as carriers in DPIs.

Despite these drivers, lactose-induced problems, stringent government regulations, and lack of compatibility with amine based drugs are expected to hinder the growth of the market. Although lactose has been widely accepted for inhalation products but it is not compatible with proteins. According to a study published in the Revista Mexicana de Ciencias (Mexican Journal of Sciences) in 2015, lactose has propensity to react with primary and secondary amine drugs through Maillard reaction to produce colored products.
