Furthermore, the emergence of new application areas and the growing demand for phycocyanin, spirulina from bio-refineries, and fresh/frozen spirulina are expected to provide significant opportunities for the growth of this market.

Based on product type, in 2023, the powder segment is expected to account for the largest share of the spirulina market.

The large market share of this segment is attributed to its rising demand from nutraceutical manufacturers due to the growing health consciousness among consumers, the increasing use of spirulina powder as an ingredient in various food & beverage products, the growing popularity of the vegan diet, and adoption of herbal ingredients in cosmetic products.

Based on distribution channel, in 2023, the business channel segment is expected to account for the larger share of the spirulina market.

The large market share of this segment is attributed to the direct purchase of bulk spirulina in large quantities by various manufacturers, such as nutraceuticals, food & beverages, and animal feed, among others, for further product development.

Based on application, in 2023, the nutraceuticals segment is expected to account for the largest share of the spirulina market.

The large market share of this segment is attributed to the booming nutraceuticals sector, growing health concerns of the aging population in various countries, growing desire for natural alternatives to traditional pharmaceutical products, and increased awareness among consumers on the link between nutrition and health. However, the food & beverages segment is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period.

The major market share of North America is attributed to the growing awareness among consumers for natural food products, rising strict regulations against synthetic colors, growing demand for nutraceuticals, growth of subsidiary industries, like cosmetics and biofertilizers, increasing preference for natural protein sources, and presence of key spirulina manufacturers with huge production capacities, especially in the U.S.
