The report analyst commented, "Cholesterol is the root cause of many health issues. People consume more junk food nowadays, which leads to accumulation of cholesterol in the human body. Excessive amounts of cholesterol affect the heart in an adverse way and also cause problems with excess weight or obesity. These problems are generally exhibited by people living in developing economies as these are the places where the disposable incomes of people are increasing and people spend money on unhealthy foods. Proper dosage of phytosterols will help in lowering cholesterol levels and thereby reduce the risk of heart diseases. If such a factor is stressed, people will prefer to consume fast foods that are fortified with phytosterols. This will cause the market for phytosterols to pick up."

According to the report, cardiovascular diseases are caused as a result of high levels of LDL cholesterol. Phytosterols act as inhibitors prevent cholesterol absorption by the small intestine. Inhibition of cholesterol absorption reduces the circulating levels of cholesterol. The cholesterol found in the human body is replaced by plant cholesterol in the inhibition process. People in industrially developed nations show high incidence of cardiovascular diseases. Cholesterol reduction is the primary step to prevent such diseases and to achieve reductions in levels of cholesterol people are increasingly turning toward natural sources as they are devoid of side effects. This is a major factor that will make people purchase phytosterol-fortified products, thereby increasing sales. Proper communication regarding the benefits of consumption of phytosterols will aid in the growth of this market.

Further, the report states that the market is facing disturbances due to the ongoing debate on various forums regarding the effectiveness of phytosterols in lowering the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
