Free Market Analysis


Phytosterols include plant sterols and plant stanols. Stanols are saturated sterols, which lack a double bond in the sterol ring. Chemically, phytosterols resemble cholesterol and the variation is only found in the carbon side chain and the prevalence or absence of a carbon double bond. The basic difference between phytosterols and cholesterol is the absorption levels in the blood stream. 

Cholesterols are absorbed in the blood stream, which increases the cholesterol levels in the body in turn increasing the chances of coronary heart diseases. On the other hand, phytosterols are not absorbed by the body and are present at low levels. Due to the resemblance in the chemical structure, phytosterols block cholesterol from being absorbed by the blood, thus reducing triglyceride levels in the body.

The increasing demand for phytosterol fortified products in medical applications owing to growing number of coronary heart diseases is anticipated to be one of the primary growth factors for the phytosterols market. Moreover, increasing awareness regarding various health benefits from the consumption of phytosterols is also expected to contribute towards the growth of the market. However, growing substitution of phytosterols by certain substances such as omega 3 fatty acids due to their provision of additional health benefits in comparison to phytosterols is expected to hamper the growth of the market. Focus of manufacturers towards technological innovation as well as market expansion in emerging regions such as Asia Pacific is expected to provide new opportunities for the growth of the market. 

Demand for β-sitosterol was the largest in the global phytosterols market, accounting for over 65% of the market share in 2012, on account of the widespread availability of its source. These products are found across large segments in plants. Other phytosterols such as campesterols accounted for the second most prominent product in the phytosterols market in 2012 and are expected to rise at a noticeable growth owing to evidence linking campesterols with anti-inflammatory properties.

Demand for phytosterols was the largest from food ingredients, accounting for over 50% of total market volumes in 2012 largely due to the large consumption of supplements in North America and Europe and the high level of awareness of phytosterols in these regions. However, future market growth is expected to be from pharmaceuticals due to technological innovation as well as increased application scope of phytosterols in the pharmaceutical industry. The pharmaceutical application segment is anticipated to rise at a CAGR of 9.3% from 2013 to 2019. 

Other applications of phytosterols such as cosmetics accounted as niche segments on account of stiff competition from substances providing similar application benefits.

Matured regions such as Europe was the largest consumer of phytosterols, acquiring over 50% of the market share in 2012, followed by North America and Asia Pacific. Moreover, Europe is anticipated to witness the fastest growth rate on account of growing consumption of formulation and pharmaceuticals in the region. Emerging regions as Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow at a faster rate than North America due to the high number of coronary heart disease cases (CHD) in the region resulting in increasing consumption of phytosterol fortified products. In addition, the cosmetic industry in this region is expected to have the highest growth rate and with increased usage of phytosterols in cosmetics, Asia Pacific is anticipated to be one of the major forces in the phytosterol market in the next few years.

BASF Cognis, ADM, Raisio Life Sciences, Forbes Medi-tech, Phyto-Source LP and K Patel Phyto Extracts among others are some of the key manufacturers of phytosterols currently dominating the market.
