LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global lanolin market report from 2017-2021. This market research report also lists 23 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global lanolin market is a niche and highly fragmented market. The big players adopt the key strategy of delving into M&A with small and medium players based in the market to increase their market share. Various small and medium regional players supply raw materials to large vendors. Lanolin production is an expensive process. There are no strict government regulations regarding the production of lanolin. Therefore, the threat of new entrants in the market is moderate. Nevertheless, the requirement from end-users is high.

According to Mohammed Shakeel Iqbal, a lead analyst at Technavio for bio-chemicals and bio-materials research, “Factors such as operating cost, price, economies of scale, product quality, innovation, and others are the basis of competition for the key vendors of the lanolin market. Owing to their high economies of scale in production, some of the major players in the lanolin market can drive down the market prices. Moreover, some players have an edge over their competitors because of better technologies and financial resources. Such major players can usually withstand the changes in the market.”
