Natural Source Vitamin E Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 – 2019 :

 Vitamin E is a significant antioxidant which helps against free-radicals and it can be conserved longer by the tissues in the body as compared to man-made vitamin E. Natural vitamins has seen increased demand from the end users in recent past. Natural source vitamin E includes tocopherols and tocotrienols. Apprehensions related to toxic chemicals in products such as food products, beverages, pharmaceuticals and personal care have driven the rapid growth in sales of natural vitamin E. Supplements for nutrition and food & beverage enrichment are the present primary markets for natural vitamin E, while, personal care and animal nutrition are anticipated to be potential markets in the near future.

Regionally, North America, especially U.S. is the largest market for natural source vitamin E. Europe also has a large market for natural source vitamin E, especially Germany, France, Italy, Spain and UK. Asia Pacific constitutes the fastest growing market led by China, India & Japan. The drivers for this market can be enlisted as the growing awareness among people about the benefits of natural source vitamins and different companies offering different range of healthy products which contain vitamins. Some companies (PepsiCo, Sunmagic, Aptitude Life Ltd.) have launched health drinks containing vitamin E and a few have launched biscuits containing vitamins. Thus change in the options of consuming vitamins has given these nutrients a boost in market. The challenge for this market lies in supply-demand disproportion for raw materials to a certain extent. The opportunities lie in deploying more technological innovations to maintain the global supply chains thus reducing the raw material procurement cost would lead to a profitable business proposition.

Some of the major players in this market are Beijing Gingko Group, BASF Corporation, BTSA, COFCO Tech Bioengineering, Carotech Bhd, Davos Life Science, Fenchem Biotek, Vitae Naturals, Eisai Food & Chemical, Ranbaxy, PepsiCo DSM Nutritional Products and Archer Daniels Midland Company.

This research report analyzes this market depending on its market segments, major geographies, and current market trends. Geographies analyzed under this research report include 

Plant Factory And Grow Lights Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019


A closed system of farming wherein a farmer or a farm technician attempts to achieve farm production under regulated conditions which have been created artificially is known as plant factory. Plant factories are generally used for the purpose of growing organic vegetables. This needs artificial control of temperature, light, carbon dioxide and moisture. Grow light is an artificial source of light which are designed to emit electromagnetic spectrum which is suitable for the photosynthesis purpose. Grow light is useful for warehouse food production. Visible light has a different spectrum as compared to grow light. The spectrum of grow lights can be optimized according to plant. The productivity of crops increases by a significant factor due to plant factory practice. 

Global market for plant factory and grow lights is estimated to grow at a significant rate. The demand for organic plants and vegetables has grown worldwide while the comparative supply has not been able to match the demand. This has led to the evolvement of the plant factory system which is an automated farm with advanced technologies and can produce 24 hours a day without depending upon climate. Plant factory market can be segmented into two categories, new plant factory construction market and plant factory products market. Highest growth rate is expected in North American countries, i.e. USA and Canada and European countries including UK, France and Germany. The APAC region currently comprises only a small segment but is expected to grow significantly as the awareness about the benefits of this technology has been increasing significantly.

The driving factors for plant factories and grow lights market are the increasing demand for the ability to grow food locally and consistently, paucity of space for farming especially in cities, and the need to increase the yield per unit area without harming the environment. Governments are also encouraging plant factories and grow lights for improving the production. The opportunities in this market are varied and can range from technological advancement in grow lights, combined use of natural lighting with artificial lighting, developing a solar power based plant factory to constructing multiple level plant factories which would further reduce space requirement.
