Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a naturally occurring vitamin-like substance present in plants, animals, and humans. It plays an important role in the production of cellular energy and in the basic functioning of cells. In the human body, it is found in the heart, liver, kidney, and pancreas. Coenzyme Q10 is industrially manufactured largely by yeast fermentation and on a smaller scale by bacterial fermentation. It is largely used in the treatment of heart conditions such as congestive heart failure and other diseases such as Huntington’s disease, breast cancer, and gum diseases among others. It is commonly used in tablets, supplements, and capsules.
Cosmetics are a growing market in countries like China and India coupled with regions in Europe and North America. With the approval of CoQ10 in cosmetics it is finding an increasing array of applications in cosmetic sub-segments such as anti-ageing creams and lotions, in these regions. This is one of the main drivers for the CoQ10 market. Proven cardiac benefits due to CoQ10 and its increasing health benefits in other areas such as obesity and other serious illnesses are also factors contributing to the increasing demand.
The usage of CoQ10 as a treatment remains controversial in many areas.

There is an increasing scope of applications in the areas of cognitive diseases, heart diseases, and anti-ageing.
