The global medium chain triglycerides market grew at a CAGR of around 6% during 2015-2020. Medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) are dietary fats with a glycerol molecule attached to three fatty acid chains. MCTs easily get absorbed and oxidized into the bloodstream, unlike other lipid molecules that require a complex digestion process. Therefore, they are being adopted for the management of several gastrointestinal disorders across the globe. They are also used to treat steatorrhea resulting from malabsorptive conditions, such as pancreatic insufficiency, prior gastrectomy and small bowel resection.
MCTs are generally administered in the form of tablets, capsules, ointments, powders and injections. A significant rise in the prevalence of gastrointestinal and malabsorptive disorders represents one of the leading factors increasing the adoption of MCTs. Apart from this, as MCTs are derived from organic and natural sources like coconut oil, palm oil and butter, they are finding applications in the cosmetics industry worldwide. Moreover, on account of their lightweight, long shelf life, and lack of color and odor, they are gaining popularity in aromatherapy. Besides this, leading players are investing in research and development (R&D) projects as MCTs show promising results in the management of obesity, cardiovascular diseases and neurological disorders. Furthermore, governing agencies of various countries, along with several healthcare groups and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), are initiating various programs and campaigns to spread awareness about various chronic diseases. This, in confluence with the growing health consciousness among individuals and the increasing prevalence of chronic and lifestyle diseases, is anticipated to promote the sales of MCTs in the pharmaceutical industry. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global medium chain triglycerides market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
