To deduce the market size for colostrum, we have considered the overall revenue generated from sales of colostrum across various regions. The forecast presented here assesses the total revenue generated across the colostrum market. In order to offer an accurate forecast, we started by sizing the current market, which forms the basis of how the colostrum market would develop in the future. However, forecasting the market in terms of various colostrum segments and regions is more a matter of quantifying expectations and identifying opportunities rather than rationalising them after the forecast has been completed.
It is imperative to note that in an ever-fluctuating global economy, we not only conduct forecasts in terms of CAGR, but also analyse the market on the basis of key parameters, such as year-on-year (Y-o-Y) growth, to understand the predictability of the market and identify the right opportunities in the colostrum market.
Another key feature of this report is the analysis of all key colostrum market segments and sub-segments, regional adoption and revenue forecast in terms of absolute dollar, and volume forecast in terms of absolute unit. This is usually overlooked while forecasting the market. However, absolute dollar opportunity is critical in assessing the level of opportunity that a provider can look to achieve, as well as to identify potential resources, from a sales and delivery perspective, present in the colostrum market.
