It is the first edition for CCM to produce this phytol China report, which is finished in Jan. 2013.

As a high value-added product in the comprehensive utilization of silkworm resources, phytol has been extracted from silkworm feces and then used as the raw material of vitamin E since 1950s. Nevertheless, its output and the number of producers are still small at present. As of 2012, there are less than 10 phytol producers. Different from some overseas porducers who use natural plant as raw material in phytol production, phytol is produced as a by-product of chlorophyll series products extracting from silkworm feces in China. This results in the unique features of phytol production in China, such as producers (their distribution, production scale, product variety, price, export situation, etc.), production cost, production technology, IP issues, etc.

China is a big silk producer and has been exploring methods to comprehensive use of silk resource for years. With better use and deep processing of silkworm resources, phytol industry is gradually recognized and will have a big leap in future development.

Phytol was firstly used to synthetic vitamin E. After more than fifty years, it is mainly used in the field of vitamin K1, food additives, cosmetics, etc..

Who will be the biggest consumers in domestic market? Who are the top phytol suppliers? Furthermore, there are many new application fields in China’s phytol market.
