Research Outline

Monolaurin Research


To have the market size for monolaurin supplements. An ideal response would:
  • Provide the market size in value (USD) broken down per country.
  • If market size is not publicly available, to understand who the top players are in the market by revenue.
  • This document was provided as what has already been discovered.

Early Findings

Data Availability

  • The initial round of research indicates that data availability surrounding the market size in value (USD) broken down per country for monolaurin supplements is non-existent. Data availability surrounding who the top players are for monolaurin supplements by REVENUE is also non-existent in the public domain. We are not suggesting further research for both these areas as it will likely not yield any results.
  • For the latter, this is because many of these companies are private, and as such are not obligated to share any financial data. Additonally, many of the companies that selll monolaurin supplements also sell other supplements. A breakdown based on revenue for just monolaurin supplements would not be publicly available.
  • Because of these facts, we must pivot the research, which is reflected in our early findings and explained in our summary section below.


  • Monolaurin supplements are "used for the common cold, flu (influenza), shingles (herpes zoster), and other infections, but there is no good scientific evidence to support its use."
  • Monolaurin hasn’t been evaluated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a treatment for any medical condition, so there are no standard dosing guidelines. No peer-reviewed evidence was found for the clinical use of monolaurin as a human dietary supplement other than as a nutrient. However, this same study concluded that "given the large amount of anecdotal evidence that supplemental GML in the diet can have many positive clinical effects, there appears to be a critical need for the scientific community to address these claims."

Paywalled Reports

  • We came across many paywalled reports stating that they have the market size, globally, for monolaurin. There is no way for us to see if those claims are true, but we have provided links to them below. Please note that there were no paywalled reports we found that were specific to monolaurin SUPPLEMENTS, but simply the monolaurin market.

  • Our initial hour of research focused solely on attempting to provide the information requested. We scoured dozens of publicly available sources to come up with any pre-compiled list that gave market size by country and/or large players by revenue. The only time we had left over was to provide four links to paywalled monolurin market sizing reports, which are not directly about the supplement market.
  • As outlined in our Data Availability statement, there are not any publicly available sources that break down the market size for monolaurin supplements, both globally and for every country in the world. There are also no publicly available sources that provide the top or key players by revenue that sell these supplements, which is because many of these companies are private and do not have to share their financial statements.
  • Additionally, monolaurin supplement data is very niche, which explains why there is not a pre-compiled list that contains this data.
  • Based on the data availability, we are recommending that no further research be completed on the actual questions. Given that the background states that this research would be used in order to ptich for the creative account of a monolaurin supplement, we are suggesting other scoping paths that might be helpful towards this research.
