The market for coconut, by source segment dominated the Medium-chain triglycerides market in 2020

The coconut segment dominated the market and accounted for USD 303 million and a market share of 42.2% in 2020, owing to rising preferences of consumers for more natural food products. In coconut oil, about half of the fatty acids are lauric acid. As the primary source for MCT oil, more than 60 percent of the fatty acids in coconut oil are MCTs. Coconut oil is one of the most important raw materials for the medium-chain triglycerides industry, as its fatty acid composition is used as a starting block for many Medium-chain triglycerides products. The oil also has health benefits that include cholesterol-lowering effects, regulating blood pressure, reduction of risks of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), weight loss, improvement of cognitive functions, actions as an antimicrobial agent, and others.

The dry form segment dominated the Medium-chain triglycerides market in 2020

The dry segment of the medium-chain triglycerides market was valued at USD 208 million in 2020, and is projected to reach USD 304 million by 2026. Medium-chain triglyceride powder is odorless and is neutral in taste. It is used in combination with other nutritional ingredients to produce various nutritional formulas, such as infant formula, products for weight management, and sports nutrition.
