Medium Chain Triglycerides Market is forecast to reach $845.19 million by 2025, after growing at a CAGR of 7% during 2020-2025. Medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) are partially man-made fats. Medium chain triglycerides are generally made by processing coconut and palm kernel oils in the laboratory. Caprylic Acid, Caproic Acid, Capric Acid, Heptanoic Acid, Lauric Acid and Nonanoic Acid are the prime products of global medium chain triglycerides market. The medium chain triglycerides market is expected to grow during the forecast period due to excessive usage of MCTs in various applications like dietary and health supplements, personal care and pharmaceuticals industries.
Due to usage of MCTs along with usual medications for treating food absorption disorders including fat indigestion, diarrhea, liver disease, celiac disease, and digestion problems due to partial surgical removal of the stomach or the intestine, the market for medium chain triglycerides is expected to grow.
MCTs are also used as emollients and high-quality carriers in the manufacturing of cosmetics that are certified in accordance to set standards by Natural and Organic Ecocert.
The demand for potential anti-aging properties of medium-chain triglycerides coupled with its property of thermogenesis has led to high demand in the personal care and dietary supplements industry.
