Cholesterol Market Report Overview

Cholesterol is an insoluble, odorless, whitish waxy substance that is present in the cell membrane of all living organisms. It is mainly synthesized by the liver and is important for effective metabolism, digestion, and production of hormones, vitamins, and bile acid in the body.

The cholesterol is transported through the bloodstream by two major protein complexes called high-density lipoproteins (HDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL). LDL is considered a bad form of cholesterol and HDL is referred to as a good form of cholesterol. Chemically produced cholesterol is mainly derived from lanolin and animal brains. Lanolin is primarily secreted by the sebaceous gland of wool-bearing animals Cholesterol is being used in various industries, such as cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries for its many beneficial properties.

The pharmaceutical segment is expected to be the largest segment of the market.

Cholesterol is used in the aquafeed industry primarily for the shrimps as it helps in boosting the growth of the species, by improving the food conversion ratio (FCR) that increases the weight. Cholesterol molecules help in the synthesis of sex hormones, molting hormones, vitamin D, bile acids, and is also a building block of shrimp tissues. It’s added in the shrimp feed to improve the yield by increasing growth, FCR, and by improving the survival rate of the shrimps.

 North America is expected to be the largest segment in the forecast period

The major demand for cholesterol is from North America followed by Europe; however, the Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at a higher rate due to the increasing demand for seafood in the region.
