In this case study, a global ingredients company engaged CPL Business Consultants to examine the mono-nucleotide market to inform its strategic planning process. CPL delivered a detailed view of the market dynamics, along with clear and actionable strategic recommendations.  


This study investigated the market for mono-nucleotides in infant and animal nutrition. Nucleotides are derived from RNA and are frequently supplemented to infant formula to support immune function and have been used in animal feed for the same purpose. CPL sought to understand the demand for nucleotides and the scientific and regulatory position on nucleotide supplementation

The scope of the report was the major markets in Europe, North America and Asia.


The main contents of the study were based on a large number of sources, including in-house databases, government regulators, trade journals, patent databases, scientific journals and existing reports. CPL carried out an extensive search and review of scientific publications, patents, trade news, regulatory databases and clinical trials databases.
