The phospholipid concentrate is also widely being used in cosmetics, hair care, skin care and other personal care products. Phospholipid concentrate has extensive use in food, pharmaceutical, nutrition, cosmetics and others. Owing to increasing application of phospholipid concentrate the market is expected to grow positively over the forecast period.

Versatile Ingredient for Functional Foods and Cosmetics

Phospholipid mixtures such as lecithin were amongst the first health foods and later developed as versatile nutraceuticals phospholipid concentrate is increasing its demand as it is an ideal ingredient for functional foods. Phospholipid concentrate has unique wetting and emulsifying properties. As emulsifiers, phospholipid aids fine dispersion of fatty food molecules in water phase which helps in improving the absorption and digestion. Due to the unique wetting property of phospholipid concentrate, it is used as surface active wetting agents in lungs, kidneys, intestine and other such organs. Phospholipid concentrate ensures miscibility at the liquid-solid and air-liquid interface. A phospholipid is the main component of cell membrane which helps in enacting and protecting cells, this increases the demand for phospholipid concentrate in the manufacturing of cosmetics and skin care products. Phospholipid concentrate strengthens the skin barrier function.  The demand for phospholipid concentrate is expected to boost the market due to its renowned ability to maintain healthy skin and also ameliorate skin disorders such as neurodermitis, slow down skin aging and vulgaris. In pharmaceutical, the demand for natural phospholipid concentrate is rising in demand over synthetic phospholipid concentrate.
