In this case study, a plant sterol company engaged CPL Business Consultants to analyse the market growth outlook for plant sterols. CPL made predictions with a high level of confidence to inform its strategic planning process. 

This report supplemented an earlier report on the Plant Sterols (Phytosterols) Market. CPL combined the information from the previous work with additional data, to make five-year market forecasts for plant sterols. We also detailed the factors that could influence market growth in the phytosterol market.

CPL had access, through contacts, to the predictions and forecasts of the sterols market from a number of industry sources.  Additionally, it had access to non-specialist market data reports. We extracted the numerical predictions from those reports and commented on the assumptions that these predictions used. For the non-specialist reports, we explained any incorrect assumptions made or misconceptions of the market which skewed this data.

Since this study, CPL has conducted a number of other projects on the phytosterols market an example of which can be found here. These have included projects covering the global markets in pharmaceuticals, as well as foods and dietary supplements.
