AY02 Market Opportunities for Fatty Esters

Have a look at our PowerPoint Introduction and Brochure describing deliverables, differentiators and case studies. Eight case studies can also be reviewed.


The objective of the study was to give a qualitative view of the best opportunity areas for our client, a European ester manufacturer with a broad portfolio of products used in industrial and consumer applications. The project sought to provide the client with information to enable it to define the best market and product niches for its capabilities.


The study aimed to identify and describe quantitatively the various segments/sub-segments of potential markets, describe the main players, define limitations and success factors and recommend potential areas for growth.

CPL examined publicly available literature and information including existing consultancy reports, the trade press and annual reports from companies as well as contacts within the industry. CPL engaged independent consultants and also sought information on the end-user markets for these products as well as trends in the industry.
