Global Ergosterol Market Research Report 2017

Ergosterol (ergosta-5,7,22-trien-3β-ol) is a compound that belongs to the steroid family with a molecular formula of C28H44O. It is found in fungi such as Saccharomyces and Candida. This compound is an essential sterol component of fungal and protozoal cell membranes, so it is an important target of antifungal drugs and anti-trypanosomal drugs. In 1927, the relationship of ergosterol and vitamin D was discovered when it was shown that upon exposure to ultraviolet radiation, ergosterol could be used to treat rickets, a disease caused by vitamin D deficiency. It is now known that this compound is a provitamin, or a precursor to vitamin D2 or ergocalciferol.

Ergosterol production, which measures output worldwide, was expected to reach XXX kg in 2016 with an increase of XXX % from its year-earlier level. The global ergosterol market size is estimated to grow from USD XXX million in 2016 to USD XXX million by 2022, at an estimated CAGR of XXX %.

China is perceived as the leading exporter and the undisputed largest ergosterol-producing nation in the world. In 2016, China produced XXX kg of ergosterol. It is not a new development, as China has been the largest global producer of ergosterol for over 5 years.

About XXX percent of the world's ergosterol is consumed by the top three end-use sectors – Vitamin D2, Pharmaceutical, and Food Additive. Worldwide, Vitamin D2 was the largest consumer of ergosterol, which is responsible for about XXX percent of ergosterol consumption in 2016.

The competitive landscape section of the report provides a clear insight into the market share analysis of key industry players. The major players in the global ergosterol market are Guangdong Wuzhou (China), Chengdu Yazhong (China), Xi'an Zhongying (China), etc.
