DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Mixed Tocopherols Market by Source (Soybean Oil, Rapeseed Oil, Sunflower Oil and Corn Oil), Function, Compound, Form, Application (Food & Beverage, Feed, Dietary Supplements, Pharmaceuticals and Cosmetics), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022" report to their offering.
The mixed tocopherols market is projected to reach USD 5.27 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2016. The growth in demand for natural and healthy sources of nutrients is the main driving factor of this market.
The global market, based on source, has been segmented into soybean oil, rapeseed oil, sunflower oil, corn oil, and others (wheat germ, alfalfa, lettuce, and nuts & seeds). The soybean oil segment accounted for the largest market share in 2015. This source has a variety of applications in different industries such as food & beverages, bakery, and industrial frying purposes.
The global market, based on compound, has been segmented into alpha tocopherols, beta tocopherols, gamma tocopherols, and delta tocopherols. Gamma tocopherols dominated the market for mixed tocopherols in terms of both, value and volume, in 2015. The gamma tocopherols segment is also projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 5.8%, in terms of value. It has multiple health benefits, such as protection against atherosclerosis, anti-cancer properties, and prevention of cardiovascular diseases and prostate cancer.
The global market, based on form, has been segmented into powder, liquid, and gel. The liquid form segment dominated the market in 2015, both in terms of value and volume. The powdered form of mixed tocopherols shows the highest growth rate and finds applications mainly in the manufacturing of food and feed fortification. Powdered mixed tocopherols also find applications in cosmetics and dietary supplements.
The global market, based on function, has been segmented into antioxidant, preservative, nutrient stabilizer, and flavor protectors. The antioxidant segment accounted for the largest share in functions of mixed tocopherols. Mixed tocopherols work as natural preservatives and can be used to keep food fresh and healthy for a long time. They are resistant to high temperature, have low volatility, and good solubility in fats, which enhances their property as preservatives. They are hence used in applications such as baked goods and cereals. Mixed tocopherols, as preservatives, are projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2022.
The global market, based on application, has been segmented into food & beverages, feed, dietary supplements, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics. The feed industry was the most dominant in 2015 followed by dietary supplements. The cosmetics industry showed the highest growth rate.
