Similarly, In the United Kingdom, the number of vegans has quadrupled over the last four years. The trend of vegan leather is forecast to surpass the animal leather market during the forecast period. Italy has been identified as the fastest-growing vegan population followed by Australia and New Zealand.

A study that was published in the PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America) indicates that by 2050, the global emissions of greenhouse gases would decrease by two-thirds if everyone went vegan. As aforementioned all of these factors are set to hinder the growth of the tocopheryl acetate market during the forecast period.
