  • Potential health benefits of lutein

Lutein is a carotenoid that is essential for eye health. It has also been shown to have a number of other health benefits, including reducing the risk of age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, and heart disease. As consumers become more aware of the health benefits of lutein, demand for lutein supplements and food products fortified with lutein is expected to increase.

  • The increasing consumption of health and Nutritional foods


  • Side effects of high doses and prolonged consumption of lutein

Consumers are becoming more knowledgeable of the possible dangers of consuming large quantities of lutein supplements. This is because there is an expanding corpus of research on the subject and because some of the adverse effects that have been recorded have received media attention. High dosages of lutein have specific negative effects, including crystal formation in the eyes and carotenodermia. Additionally, supplements containing lutein may interact with some medicines, including blood thinners and cholesterol-lowering medications. This might make certain drugs more likely to have unwanted side effects.


  • Huge Consumption of Dietary Supplements

Due to its high concentration of minerals, vitamins, and fatty acids, dietary supplements accounted for the largest portion of the lutein market. Consumers can maintain their health and safeguard themselves against dangerous diseases. One of the main factors influencing the market is the rising occurrences of vision impairment and the myopic population, which are caused by an increase in screen usage and participation in virtual meetings while working from home. The industry is also being driven by an increase in older people's and millennials' interest for eye health supplements, who are particularly vulnerable to digital eye strain and myopia.


  • Concerns about lutein's stability

Climate and environmental factors can impact lutein's natural properties. Therefore, when food and beverage products containing these colorants are cooked and processed at high temperatures, changes in odor, taste, or texture may take place. Lutein also has a short shelf life. It tends to change both its internal fragrance and color when kept in storage for an extended period of time or when exposed to sunlight, moisture, and high temperatures. Food items may become unpleasant as a result of lutein's natural color fading over time and other natural qualities changing. Color and visual appeal of food goods are crucial customer purchasing factors. As a result, modifications to a food product's inherent qualities can seriously impede the expansion of the world lutein market.

  • Government regulations


Russia Ukraine war has significantly impacted the lutein market. As a result of the war, medical facilities have been destroyed, and there have been several casualties. The general populace, children, and others have not received the necessary nutrition for their bodies. Ukraine is a big producer of sunflower oil, which is used to make lutein supplements. The war has affected Ukrainian sunflower oil production and export, causing shortages and higher costs in the worldwide lutein market. Since the beginning of the war, the price of lutein has risen by an average of 15%. The quantity of lutein has been estimated to have fallen by 10%.


Recession has a significant impact on lutein market. As the general population grows, particularly as a result of the Russia-Ukraine conflict casualties, there is an increase in demand for lutein dietary supplements. However, as the price of sunflower and other materials used in supplements has risen, so have the prices of supplements. As a result, demand for lutein supplements has decreased by 5% on average, and the worldwide lutein market is predicted to shrink by 3% in 2023 as a result of the recession.

15. Conclusion

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
