Global Algae Products Market to Reach US$ 2.4 Billion by 2027, Propelled by Rising Functional Food Product Portfolio Customizations

Published on Sep 26, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Algae Products Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, the global algae products market size reached US$ 1.7 Billion in 2021.  Algae products contain vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids, and are often made from seaweed, chlorella, and kelp. An algae product is high in protein and contains necessary amino acids, which aid the formation of enzymes in the human body. These compounds have antioxidant, antiproliferative, antihypertensive, anticoagulant, and immunostimulatory effects, due to which they are widely utilized in the preparation of dietary supplements. The primary and secondary metabolites of algae are generally extracted as nutritional compounds, whereas other products, such as agar, alginate, and hydrocolloids, are used as gelling, thickening, suspending, and stabilizing agents.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
