Astaxanthin (C40H52O4) is a red fat, soluble carotenoid pigment found in various microorganisms and marine animals. It belongs to chemical compounds known as terpenes that are made from five-carbon precursors, dimethylallyl diphosphate and isopentenyl diphosphate. It has antioxidants and anti-inflammatory and antineoplastic properties, which assist in enhancing the immune system, preventing damage caused by ultraviolet (UV) rays, protecting against chemically induced cancers, and treating several diseases. Consequently, it is utilized as a functional food ingredient, dietary supplement, and feed additive across the globe.
The increasing prevalence of diseases like diabetes, cancer, cognitive health problems and cardiovascular diseases represents one of the significant factors propelling the growth of the market. Astaxanthin aids in increasing blood flow, minimizing blood sugar levels and reducing pain in muscles, joints, and tendons. It also prevents photoaging, improves sleep cycles, combats depression, and increases sperm motility. Besides this, on account of its ability to preserve the taste, color, freshness, and quality of food items, there is a significant rise in the demand for astaxanthin as a food-additive and food-coloring agent in the food and beverage (F&B) industry across the globe. Furthermore, astaxanthin is widely used for skin tightening, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles and retaining moisture and elasticity. Apart from this, various manufacturers are utilizing cost-effective technologies to reduce water wastage and save electricity, which is acting as another growth-inducing factor. For instance, they are employing a sealed microalgae cultivation system that minimizes the risks associated with microbial contamination and agricultural residue. Other major factors, including the increasing preference for dietary supplements and rising nutritional deficiency among individuals, are projected to bolster the market growth.
