Based on the source, the sunflower segment of the lecithin market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Based on source, the lecithin market has been segmented into soy, sunflower, rapeseed, and eggs while the phospholipids market is segmented into soy and egg. The sunflower segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. For food applications, the preferred lecithin is non-GMO lecithin, due to concerns about health issues related to the consumption of genetically modified products and strict regulations in regions such as Europe. The lecithin extracted from soy is generally GM; hence, end-user industries are switching to other options such as sunflower and rapeseed. The wide availability of sunflower in European countries such as Ukraine and Russia is also expected to favor the growth of the lecithin market in this region.
