The powder & crystalline in by form segment accounted for the largest share of the lutein market in 2023 in terms of value.
Powdered lutein offers versatility in its application. It can be easily blended with other ingredients, making it suitable for use in a wide range of products, such as dietary supplements, functional foods, and beverages. This versatility makes powdered lutein appealing to manufacturers who want to incorporate lutein into their formulations. Whereas, crystalline lutein may have a higher demand in certain specialized applications. For example, in the production of lutein esters, crystalline lutein is preferred due to its purity and ability to form ester bonds. Industries requiring lutein esters for specific formulations or products may drive the demand for crystalline lutein.
