Growing product applications in the pharmaceutical and food industries on account of its anti-cancer, anti-viral, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory properties are projected to drive the market over the next few years. Lignans derived from cereals, such as corn, oats, barley, and rye, are majorly incorporated in manufacturing various food products, including macaroni, couscous, cheerios, wholegrain biscuits, and granola bars. Increasing consumption of cereal-based foods, such as oatmeal, muesli, raisin bran, and compressed puffed rice, is likely to spur the overall market growth.

Lignans are predominantly used to incorporate antioxidant and estrogen attributes to food products, such as cereals, energy bars, whole-grain bread, crackers, semolina pasta, meatless meals, and other snack foods. Lignans in the aforementioned foods are precursors of mammalian lignans and are linked with decreased risk of cancer and Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs). This factor is anticipated to positively influence product demand in the global market. Asia Pacific is expected to account for the largest market share by 2027 due to technological developments, changing demographics and lifestyles, and favorable research studies in the region.
