Phytoceramides Market

Geriatric Population to Be Demand Generator for Cosmetic Products that Incorporate Phytoceramides, Projects Fact.MR

Published : 20 Aug 2021 Industry: Chemical & Materials

Fact.MR – a market research and competitive intelligence provider, analyses that phytoceramide demand is set to register strong growth owing to escalating demand from cosmetic and nutraceutical industries.

Environmental variables such as cold weather, air pollution, and UV rays, together with stress and ageing can diminish the concentration or effectiveness of ceramides in the skin and cause it to feel dry. Besides, as we age, our skin ceases producing ceramides, leading to the formation of wrinkles as well as age spots and rough, uneven skin texture.

By 2050, one in every six people will be over 65 years of age, as per the World Population Prospects 2019 report published by the United Nations. Multiple studies and tests conducted independently by testing and research centres show that phytoceramide use increases hydration and provides anti-aging and anti-wrinkle benefits, which are highly sought-after by the geriatric population.

This makes countries such as Japan, China, the U.S., India, Russia, and Brazil some of the key markets for cosmetics and supplement manufacturers whose products target the old age population.

This older population is anticipated to remain a prominent factor contributing to the sales of phytoceramides over the forecast period, says Fact.MR. As per the recent market study, phytoceramide sales are anticipated to close in on US$ 394 Mn by 2031 and rising at 5.3% CAGR.

Key Takeaways from Market Study

  • The phytoceramides market is anticipated to add 1.7X value by 2031.
  • Powder form of phytoceramides captures a major chunk of the market and is set to create an absolute $ opportunity of around US$ 131 Mn over 2021-2031.

  • Cosmetics application is poised to experience highest growth among all the applications at a CAGR of 5.7% during 2021-2031.

 “A slew of studies are being conducted to uncover innovative applications for phytoceramides in order to boost market growth,” says a Fact.MR analyst.
