The caprylic acid segment dominated the market with a share of 50.4% in 2020, in terms of value
The caprylic acid segment dominated the market with a share of 50.4% in 2020, in terms of value as Caprylic acid does not have an offensive taste or smell. Thus, it is often the primary MCT used in MCT oil. Caprylic triglyceride is a compound that comes from combining fatty acids with glycerin. The fatty acids in the compound are medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). Caprylic acid is also known for its antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties, and can help treat skin disorders and acne. It’s also useful for treating urinary tract infections, bladder infections, STIs, and even gingivitis. It also helps to burn excess calories, which in turn leads to weight loss. The liver finds it easy to break down, or oxidize, MCFAs such as caprylic acid. This faster rate of oxidation leads to a higher rate of energy expenditure.
The nutritional supplements segment by application dominated the market, with a share of 25.9% in 2020.
The nutritional supplements segment accounted for the major share of 25.9% in 2020, with a total value of USD 186.5 million. Medium-chain triglycerides aid in weight loss by reducing calorie intake and fat storage and increasing fullness, calorie burning, and ketone levels on low-carb diets.
Medium-chain triglycerides have numerous health benefits, ranging from better weight management to improved cognitive functioning. Saturated fats and MCTs are good for consumption on a daily basis; they help in reducing the risks associated with hormone imbalances, weight gain, gut problems, and cognitive disorders. They also support maintenance of a healthy gut environment. MCTs are digested more rapidly than long chain triglycerides. It supports in reducing stored body fat by raising metabolic function and helps in better digestion and gives more energy. MCTs are not stored in fat deposits in the body as much as LCTs. Furthermore, MCTs have been shown to enhance thermogenesis (i.e., fat burning). So, they seem to offer a triple approach to weight loss - they have a lower calorie content than other fats, are minimally stored as fat, and contribute to enhanced metabolism to burn even more calories.
