Global Algae Products Market by Type (Lipids, Carrageenan, Carotenoids, Alginate, Algal Protein, Others), Form (Solid, Liquid), Source, Application, Region Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2018 to 2025


Newark, NJ, Jan. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per the report published by Fior Markets, the global algae product market is expected to grow from USD 3.20 Billion in 2017 to USD 5.38 Billion by 2025 at a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period 2018-2025.

Growing demand for natural products, proactive efforts by market players to formulate algae based consumable products, increase in global population, rising demand for food and customization of functional food product, increased use of algae for production of livestock for aquaculture species and rising consumer awareness related to the health benefits of algae-based products are the factors driving the algae product market.

Algae are defined as photosynthetic, oxygen-exhaling, unicellular, or multicellular microorganisms with varied properties such as consumption of carbon-dioxide, storage of essential nutrients, minerals, and vitamins in microorganisms. Algae compose organic food molecules from carbon dioxide and water with the help of photosynthesis. They are used in a large number of industries to commercially produce useful end products such as food pharmaceuticals and medicines, animal feed, fertilizer and as fuel. For instance, in Oct 2018, Texas-based companies and universities worked with the Algae Biomass Organization to bring the 2018 Algae Biomass Summit, an annual conference of investors, scientists and entrepreneurs to The Woodlands, October 14-17. It was the first time in its 12-year history that the largest algae conference in the world was held in Texas.

As mentioned rising global population and growing demand for food and customization of functional food products is a major factor driving the market. In addition, increased use of algae for the production of livestock for aquaculture species and rising consumer awareness related to the health benefits of algae-based products are two factors fuelling the growth of the market. However, the negative effect of climatic conditions on algae production may obstruct the growth of the market. Nevertheless, favorable government initiatives to support research & development in algaculture may boost the market in forthcoming years.
