According to Emergent Research‘s most recent analysis, the worldwide phospholipids market had a value of USD 3.21 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow at a rate of 5.3% during the forecast period. Increasing demand for phospholipids to protect organelles and improve gut lining are two major factors fueling the growth of the global phospholipids market. The fundamental elements of membranes are phospholipids. The gut lining, a single-cell thick, semipermeable membrane that lets nutrients into circulation while keeping waste in the colon, is one of the most significant membranes in the body. Phosphatidylcholine supplementation has been shown in studies to improve the gut-brain connection by repairing gut lining, promoting a healthy inflammatory response, and even regulating the microbiome.
The market for phospholipids will gain momentum from the expanding cosmetics industry in emerging markets. Phospholipids can serve a variety of purposes in cosmetics. Phospholipids provide nutrition to aging cells and enhance skin hydration, fine line and wrinkle reduction, and skin texture. Additionally, phospholipids are active elements in cosmetics and are well-known for their capacity to maintain healthy skin, support the treatment of skin conditions, and slow down the aging process of the skin.
The demand for natural fruit and vegetable additives is driven by rising consumer awareness of the negative consequences of consuming chemical compounds and the availability of natural or organic substances as alternatives in the market. The terms “natural” and “additive-free” are now on consumers’ shopping lists for food and beverage products. Due to growing consumer knowledge, ingredient labeling is now required in developed economies like the US and EU nations. Customers seek out healthy, natural products and ingredients that taste delicious and are low in calories. There is a need to substitute natural products for artificial ones, even if consumers have accepted artificial or non-organic ingredients and they have a sizable market position.
