AX06 Market Opportunities for Omega 7

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

Objective

The objective of this study was to quantify the market potential for omega-7 as an ingredient, and in finished products, in supplements, cosmetics or other sectors (e.g. food, pharmaceuticals etc.).

Omega-7 oils are found naturally in products such as macadamia nut, sea buckthorn oil, wild salmon and milk fat. They had been marketed with a number of health claims. The scope of the study was current and potential sources of omega-7 sold as ingredients and as finished products.

Method

The main contents of the study were based on sources including in-house databases and an extensive network of contacts in addition to publicly available information (e.g. data from government agencies, patents, scientific journals, trade press, internet etc.). Additional information was sought from other key resources within the industries concerned in sufficient depth to provide accurate analysis and guidance.

CPL used its extensive network of contacts, (including the CPL Executive Search network), to elicit information that would be difficult or impossible for clients to obtain independently Interviews were conducted with those knowledgeable in the industry, both face-to-face and telephone conversations. Contacts were also made at trade-shows.

The report consists of two parts, the summary report and the reference report, to provide the essence of CPL’s findings along with our recommendations, followed by detailed data sources and analysis.
