With production remaining at a steady state, many companies in this market predict that the price of vitamin E will fall. Cognis Nutrition and Health, for example, reported a demand decrease of nearly 40 percent for its natural vitamin E products, and stated a decrease in revenues of nearly 18 percent in 2005.
“With the decreased demand for vitamin E in human supplement applications, there is a surplus of supply over demand thought to drive down the market price per pound,” notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Jennifer Steinke.
However, due to low consumer understanding, increasing interest for vitamin E in human supplements will not occur. Consumers are becoming more knowledgeable on the health benefits of food ingredients, but seem to lack the overall understanding due to the influx of mixed/unclear information from the media.
“Low consumer understanding of the health benefits of vitamin E supplementation impedes market growth,” explains Steinke. “Thus, the market for vitamin E in supplements is not expected to return to normal until consumer understanding increases.”
By generating creative marketing techniques that clearly identify the benefits and negatives related to vitamin E, manufacturers can increase consumer understanding. They need to aggressively take charge of educating the consumer properly.
