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

This report is supplemental to study C0803 – The Market for Plant Sterols. Using the information obtained for study C0803, we made five year market forecasts for plant sterols.

CPL had access, through contacts, to the predictions and forecasts of the sterols market made by others including Health Strategy Consultants and Euromonitor.

We extracted from those reports the numerical predictions made and the assumptions that were used for these predictions. We commented on the assumptions that were made for several of these other reports and identified factors that could influence growth in the sterol market.
