The market revenue is forecast to increase from $4 billion in 2019 to $4.8 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 3.3%, driven by surging demand for Omega-3 and medium-chain triglycerides (MCT).

'The concept of lipids has undergone a paradigm shift over the years. Initially, lipids were often blamed to be only a cause of cardiovascular and other chronic diseases. However, this notion has changed,' said Nimisha Dhomne, Research Analyst, Chemical, Materials and Nutrition Practice, Frost & Sullivan. 'Growing awareness about health and managing lifestyle-related diseases are leading to an increased realization of preventive healthcare approaches by the general population to avoid excessive healthcare expenditure. MCT consumption is set to increase, especially in the weight-loss or weight management regimens, fueling global demand for dietary supplement and functional food applications.'
Dhomne added: 'The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the industry in 2020 due to supply chain disruptions and reduced consumer spending in both developed and developing countries. However, the expanding application scope of Omega-3in pharmaceutical industries with a large number of clinical trials and regulatory approvals is likely to benefit the market. Similarly, the rising infant nutrition industry in the Asia-Pacific region due to the high number of births in India, China, and other countries is expected to amplify the need for Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and ARA.'
