innovations Pushing Forth The usage Of Lecithin In Medicines:
Phospholipids enriched lecithin are
largely beneficial to modern medicine. As there is an incessant rise in
diseases and body disorders, several healthcare organizations are stressing on
the innovation of organic treatments. This has boosted the growth of lecithin
and phospholipids market across the world whereby gaining huge demand in the healthcare
industry. Constant researches are conducted with lecithin as the prime
substance which has helped develop a newer method of treatment and medication
for several diseases. Being rich in antioxidant properties, lecithin is used in
administering and treating diabetes, liver disorder, high cholesterol, skin
disease, anxiety, and many other health issues. Sunflower lecithin, egg lecithin,
and soy lecithin equally facilitate immunity and improve organ functioning in
the body. Consequently, these products have gained a remarkable place in the
medical and pharmaceutical industries. Besides, soy and egg lecithin is
demonstrated to have no adverse effect on patients with allergic reactions to
the original ingredients whereby upheaving the lecithin and phospholipids
market demand prospect. Some of these novel innovations include the possible
treatment of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease. Researchers claim that using lecithin,
the reduced production of myelin by the Schwann cells is targeted and improved.
As a result, naturally promoted myelination through the use of phospholipids in
lecithin is a breakthrough for the hereditary neuropathy disease. Furthermore, the
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Novartis’ initial endocrine-based
treatment in premenopausal breast cancer. Its Kisqali® offers a push forth to
the need for new treatment in advanced breast cancer in the female population.
Moreover, Kisqali consists of soy lecithin which is likely to influence the lecithin
market growth prospects in the forthcoming years. Resultantly, these major
advancements will eventually boost the lecithin and phospholipids market size
whereby leveraging huge demand from end-users across the globe. Influenced by
several of these causative factors, the global lecithin and phospholipids
market acquired revenue of $1 billion in 2018. Also, the lecithin and
phospholipids market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% during the
forecasted period of 2019-2025.
Nutritional Attributes in Animal Feed:
lecithin is notably used as a poultry feed to improvise the nutritional
quality of meat. Cooked meat is considered to lose a considerable amount of
phospholipids as compared to the poultry who are fed a graded level of soy
lecithin. As an alternative to tallow feeds for poultry birds, soy lecithin is
gaining huge demand in recent times which will uplift this market growth.
significant improvement is observed in pigs fed with lecithin dietary
supplements over a particular period. Consequently, promoting the growth of pigs, the economic output of cattle farming.
Sunflower lecithin is one of the prominent emulsifier and supplement products used in a multifarious industry. With a wide application in organic and inorganic cosmetic products, sunflower lecithin claims a huge base of end-user customers throughout the world.

The aforementioned statistic by CTPA
highlights the economic output of the listed beauty and personal care products
in the United Kingdom in 2016. This shows the huge scope of opportunity for the
sunflower lecithin to gain huge demand owing to the business profit of
cosmetic industries. Additionally, a leading player in the oil industry, Avril
recently expanded its footprint in the global lecithin
market with the acquisition of Novastell. With this strategic move, Avril
is set to supply a wide range of lecithin products including sunflower
lecithin, which will boost the parent market growth in the forecasted years.
Induced by these developments, the application of sunflower lecithin will
increase at 6.6% CAGR through to 2025.
The Asia Pacific is leading the global
lecithin and phospholipids market and contributed a regional share of 31.6% in
the year 2018. APAC countries trade in a surplus quantity of lecithin products
owing to a huge end-user industry established in this region. A pool of
cosmetic industry, paint industry, food & beverage industry, and pharmaceutical
industry are centered in APAC. These industries depend on phospholipids in the manufacturing
of a diverse range of products such as soaps, moisturizers, shampoos, drugs,
dietary supplements, food additives, and many more. Resultantly, this
demand-pull inflation will eventually elevate the lecithin and phospholipid
market in this region. APAC’s dominance over the global lecithin and
phospholipids market is attributed to several growth drivers influencing the
domestic lecithin and phospholipids market share. Now, China imported 7,960 tons of lecithin and
phosphoaminolipids in the year 2018 which amounted to $49,925. Likewise, India
imported 28,663 tons which accounted for nearly $30,914 in the same year. Furthermore, the Indian
gourmet food market size is $1.3 billion currently. Catering to the requirement of this macroeconomic market, the lecithin and
phospholipids market is likely to prosper positively in this region.
In Food Industries Boosting Lecithin And Phospholipids Market:
Lecithin has gained an important place
in the modern food industry in the past few decades. With several benefits such
as emulsion, additive, non-toxic organic components, and others boost the
manufacturing process of the food industries. With a combination of several phospholipids
compounds such as phosphatidylinositol, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylcholine,
and others, lecithin demand is gaining traction in the food industry. Apart
from its application in the human food processing industry, lecithin has also
gained a place in the animal feed industries. Being widely found in lecithin,
phospholipids are widely applied in convenience food, bakery goods, and
confectionery items. Soy lecithin is largely used in the chocolate industry as
a less expensive alternative to other emulsifying agents such as cocoa butter.
Additionally, the global chocolate
leveraged a revenue of $129.93 billion in 2018 and is estimated to acquire a
perennial demand in the forecasted years. Consequently, this will positively
impact the demand growth of the lecithin and phospholipids market in the
process. Furthermore, the availability of non-GMO lecithin products is
expediting the niche market development successively.
Development And Trends:
=> The organic cosmetic market is rapidly expanding in recent times. With minimal
side-effects and noticeable skin benefits, phospholipids-based cosmetic
