Capric triglycerides are esters possessing a specific fraction of coconut/palm oil fatty acids. They are also known as caprylic/capric/lauric triglycerides. Capric triglyceride is produced by the esterification of glycerol with a blend of caprylic and capric fatty acids. Capric triglyceride, also referred as medium chain triglyceride, is a clear non-viscous liquid that is non-greasy and light in weight. C33H62O6 is the chemical formula of capric triglycerides. It is widely used in skin care, lip care, hair care, nail care, cosmetics, aromatherapy, and massage products owing to its emulsifying and emollient characteristics.
The global capric triglyceride market is primarily driven by the increase in demand for capric triglycerides in cosmetics and personal care products. Capric triglyceride-based cosmetic products are compatible with all skin types, exhibit excellent skin smoothing properties, and are used to promote skin penetration. Rise in usage of capric triglycerides in personal and cosmetics products due to their high skin absorption rate is anticipated to drive the global capric triglyceride market. Capric triglyceride is primarily used as energy booster in endurance sports and medicinal foods. It is also used as inert carrier of flavor, oil soluble food colorants, fat soluble vitamins, and fat soluble additives. Rise in demand for capric triglyceride in the food & beverages industry is projected to boost the global capric triglyceride market. Capric triglyceride also act as carrier or suspension medium for oil soluble antibiotics and drugs. This is propelling the demand for capric triglyceride in the pharmaceutical industry.
Based on function, the global capric triglyceride market can be segmented into dispersing agents, solubilizers, solvents, spreading agents, and others. The solvents segment held key share of the global capric triglyceride market in 2017. Capric triglyceride acts as a carrier of fat-soluble vitamins and actives. It is primarily employed as solvent for soluble actives and UV filters.
Based on end-use industry, the global capric triglyceride market can be segregated into food & beverages, personal care & cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, process industries, and others.
