New York, April 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PMR report, the North America flaxseed market is tracked from the consumption point of view in terms of both value and volume. The North America flaxseed market is anticipated to grow from US$ 250.5 Mn in 2015 to US$ 308.4 Mn by 2021, expanding at a CAGR of 2.9% in terms of revenue during the forecast period (2016–2022). Increasing health awareness, increasing demand for clean label, and increasing popularity and consumer demand for vegan ingredients is anticipated to drive growth of the North America flaxseed over the forecast period. Demand for flaxseed across the food processing industry is growing steadily and can be attributed to the various health benefits associated with flaxseed consumption. Some of its benefits include lower cholesterol levels, lower risk of heart diseases, and improved digestive health. Growing consumer preference towards a healthy lifestyle is further fueling growth of the flaxseed market currently. 

One of the major restraints for the growth of the flaxseed market are that flaxseed contains only Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA), but does not contain Eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA), thereby limiting its demand. Though a certain amount (typically less than 5%) of ALA gets converted into EPA, end-use industries prefer using fish oil as an ingredient in order to deliver the required amount of EPA and DHA in food products. This factor is anticipated to restrain growth of the flaxseed market over the forecast period.
