Tocopherols to Beat Tocotrienol in Terms of Demand

There are two variants of natural source vitamin E available in the market: tocopherol and tocotrienol. Of these, tocopherol is expected to lead in terms of demand as well as in terms of being the highest revenue contributor. The tocopherol segment accounted for 65% of the market back in 2015. High use in dietary supplements is a key reason for the growing demand for tocopherol. As tocotrienols are difficult to absorb during digestion and are also poorly distributed to blood cells, their demand will is low. Moreover, they are rapidly metabolized and eliminated from the body. Thus, its application is limited to cosmetics, where it is used for anti-aging creams. Therefore, tocotrienols occupies a significantly lower share as compared to tocopherol in the natural source vitamin E market.
