Published | 30 January 2024
Global Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) Market is flourishing due to the growing awareness about health benefits by using MCT, spurring demand for functional foods and beverages, and growing popularity of keto and paleo diets.
BlueWeave Consulting, a leading strategic consulting and market research firm, in its recent study, estimated the Global Medium Chain Triglycerides Market size at USD 680.65 million in 2023. During the forecast period between 2024 and 2030, BlueWeave expects the Global Medium Chain Triglycerides Market size to expand at a CAGR of 5.52% reaching a value of USD 991.65 million by 2030. The Global Medium Chain Triglycerides Market is propelled by a rising demand for functional food supplements. Notably, the expanding engagement in sports activities worldwide and increased strategic marketing initiatives by leading manufacturers to expand their consumer base further contribute to the expansion of the Global Medium Chain Triglycerides Market during the forecast period. Also, the growth of the Global Medium-Chain Triglycerides Market is anticipated to be further propelled by growing awareness about fitness, supported by government healthcare campaigns. Stringent government regulations pertaining to the quality of dietary supplements play a crucial role in safeguarding against adulteration and the use of prohibited ingredients. The NSF GMP certification process serves as an indicator that a manufacturer has undergone a rigorous manufacturing audit to comply with the standards set by the National Science Foundation. While this certification ensures the quality of products in the market, it may also act as a limiting factor for manufacturers' growth.
Impact of Geopolitical Tensions on Global Medium Chain Triglycerides Market
The Global Medium Chain Triglycerides Market is impacted by geopolitical tensions in several ways. Heightened geopolitical tensions, particularly stemming from the Russia-Ukraine conflict, have ushered in increased uncertainty and volatility across the global economic landscape. This escalation, marked by economic sanctions and geopolitical unrest, has sent ripples through diverse industries, shaping consumer sentiment and purchasing behaviors. In the midst of these geopolitical challenges, the Global Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) Market has showcased remarkable adaptability. Brands in the MCT market are actively reassessing their marketing strategies to align with evolving consumer sentiments, thereby demonstrating resilience amid the geopolitical disruptions. The strategic management of Medium Chain Triglycerides has become paramount for businesses, emphasizing the necessity for adaptability in response to dynamic geopolitical shifts.
Concurrently, the surge in affordable sunflower oil from Russia and Ukraine is exerting downward pressure on palm oil prices, thereby influencing the Global Medium-Chain Triglycerides Market. Seizing the opportunity presented by currency depreciation, these major producers are effectively expanding their market share. Traditionally priced higher, sunflower oil has become more economical than soy oil and only marginally more expensive than palm oil. The aggressive selling of sunflower oil from the Black Sea region is creating substantial market pressure, impacting not only palm oil but also other edible oils. This trend is propelled by record sunflower seed crops, currency depreciation, and heightened sunflower oil exports, reshaping dynamics in the edible oils market and leaving an indelible mark on the Global Medium Chain Triglycerides Market.
