Which Factors are Stimulating Demand for Tocopheryl Acetate?

Tocopheryl acetate is also known as Alpha-tocopheryl acetate (ATA) and is generally used as a substitute for vitamin E. In chemical structure of tocopheryl acetate the phenolic hydroxyl group is blocked which reduces the acidity of the product and extends the shelf life. Vitamin E acetate is hydrolyzed slowly once absorbed by the human skin and regenerates tocopherol.

The benefits of the tocopheryl acetate include protecting the skin from UV damage, improving moisture content and skin texture, reduction in severity of sunburns, prevention of melanin deposits, inhibition of lipoperoxide associated skin disorders and improving the stability of cosmetics.

Per capita expenditure on healthcare is increasing at a tremendous pace in developing countries. Increasing consumer health awareness across the globe and the latest trends of tocopheryl acetate in skin care are likely to drive the demand for tocopheryl acetate over the coming years.

What are the Restraints being Encountered by Tocopheryl Acetate Manufacturers?

Moderate health hazards from tocopheryl acetate, such as organ system toxicity will remain a challenge for market supply and production. Environmental Working Group’s Cosmetics Database has classified the compound as a moderate hazard. Tocopheryl acetate is related to concerns regarding organ system toxicity, contamination of hydroquinone and cancer.

According to Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR), tocopheryl acetate demonstrated positive mutation results with mammalian cells that can lead to cancer. The compound also poses a threat of bioaccumulation as it can get accumulated under the human skin.

Which Region Offers the Largest Opportunity for Tocopheryl Acetate Suppliers?

The Asia Pacific region leads with more than 40% share in the global market for tocopheryl acetate, owing to rapidly increasing population, rise in consumer awareness, favorable government policies, and modernization of healthcare infrastructure.

The Asia Pacific emerged as the largest market for tocopheryl acetate in terms of consumption and production. Changing consumer preferences and increasing awareness about health is driving demand for personal care and cosmetics products, which, in turn, is expected to drive this target market.

Growing medical tourism industry in developing nations such as China and India in this region. Among all the applications of tocopheryl acetate in skin care, the use of tocopheryl acetate in cosmetics and moisturizers have the highest market share in the market due to a higher prevalence in patients.

Mexico d-alpha tocopheryl acetate producers, Brazil tocopheryl acetate oils & concentrate manufacturers, and South Korea cosmetics grade tocopheryl acetate manufacturers have been emerging as leading manufacturers owing to inline production capacity expansions.

Why is the Popularity of D-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate Rising Rapidly?

D-alpha tocopheryl acetate is the primary form of vitamin E that is preferentially used by the human body to meet appropriate dietary requirements. D-alpha tocopheryl acetate is known for its antioxidant activities, is protective against cardiovascular disease and some forms of cancer and has also demonstrated immune-enhancing effects. It may be of limited benefit in some with asthma and rheumatoid arthritis.

It may be helpful in some neurological diseases including Alzheimer's, some eye disorders including cataracts, and diabetes and premenstrual syndrome. It may also help protect skin from ultraviolet irradiation although claims that it reverses skin aging, enhances male fertility and exercise performance are poorly supported. It may help relieve some muscle cramps.

It is subsequently most commonly indicated for dietary supplementation in individuals who may demonstrate a genuine deficiency in vitamin E. Consumer groups in developing regions are becoming conscious about the health and aging issues and seek treatment with organic products. Hence, demand for d-alpha tocopheryl acetate is rising rapidly across geographies.

Why is Animal Feed Industry Demand for Tocopheryl Acetate Dominating the Landscape?

Mixed tocopheryl usage in animal feed industry is booming due to rising concerns over animal health. Growing demand for high quality poultry meat and pork has driven the demand for tocopherol in the feed industry.

All-rac-alpha-tocopherol acetate is the most common vitamin E form used to supplement animal feeds. Application in animal feed has got a huge opportunity in the field of tocopherol. An adequate amount of tocopheryl is required in animal nutrition to protect them from malnutrition and pathogen.

In addition, rising concerns of heat stress on animals are also anticipated to boost the use of tocopheryl in animal feed. Thus, with rise in demand for quality meat and poultry products globally, demand for the use of tocopheryl acetate in animal feed is also expected to increase.

How Has COVID-19 Impacted Demand for Tocopheryl Acetate?

The global market for tocopheryl acetate was severely impacted by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Owing to lockdowns implemented across various countries, national and international transport was hampered, which significantly impacted the market.

As a substitute to vitamin E, tocopheryl acetate has rapidly been gaining traction as a nutrient ingredient in staving off infectious diseases, owing to its properties of safeguarding cells from the adverse impact of oxidation. Further, the compound is finding increased use in animal feed formulations, to improve health standards.

Consequently, tocopheryl acetate will play a growing role in foods and dietary supplements, and will substantially gain traction among health-conscious consumers, who are in the search for avenues to strengthen their body's immune systems. With passing time and decreasing rates of positive cases of COVID-19, the market is regaining its position and stabilizing.

Competitive Landscape

Key tocopheryl acetate producers are aiming at establishing supply contracts with end-use industries for increased revenue generation.

Top manufacturers of tocopheryl acetate oils & concentrates and top food grade tocopheryl acetate manufacturers are primarily aiming to carry out strategic acquisitions, collaborations, and launch innovative products.

  • In 2019, DSM has strengthened its market position in China by forming 75/25 joint venture with Nenter & Co., Inc, a leading Chinese tocopheryl acetate manufacturer.
