Feed Additive Focus: Vitamin E50 and Vitamin D3 500

Announcement by DSM creates market interest in future supply.

The most remarkable market trends this week are rather ... unremarkable. Both vitamin E50 and vitamin D3 500 have shown stability, with a slow gradual decrease in price. While demand for food-grade vitamin D continues to increase following claims that it supports the immune system’s fight against COVID-19, its feed-grade counterpart has maintained the same price level for the last three months, suggesting that supply and demand are balanced for now.

Glowlit users interested in Vitamin E50 received a unique activity email notification last week. The increased user interest (31% more than the prior week) followed an announcement by Royal DSM (https://www.dsm.com/corporate/news/news-archive/2020/2020-10-29-dsm-update-on-vitamin-e-production.html?from=singlemessage) regarding a maintenance shutdown of its vitamin E plant in Sisseln, Switzerland, planned during parts of January and February 2021. DSM also announced that its vitamin E production facility in China, part of a joint venture called Yimante between DSM and Nenter, is expected to compensate for the volume gap resulting from the closure in Sisseln. So far, the sentiment in the global vitamin E market seems to agree, with prices logged around the world confirming stability in the market.
