Global Astaxanthin Market to Reach US$ 1,122.1 Million by 2027, Propelled by the Rising Prevalence of Diseases

September 06, 2022

The latest report by IMARC, titled “Astaxanthin Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, finds that the global astaxanthin market size reached US$ 696.4 Million in 2021. Astaxanthin refers to a red fat, soluble pigment belonging to a group of chemicals known as carotenoids. It occurs in yeast, shrimp, trout, microalgae, and other sea creatures. Most commonly, it is found in Pacific Salmon, giving the fish its pinkish color. Astaxanthin offers numerous health benefits due to antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antineoplastic properties. It helps maintain healthy skin, endurance, heart health, and joint pain and protects against chemically induced cancers. In recent years, astaxanthin has gained momentum due to its employment as a functional food ingredient, dietary supplement, and feed additive.

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

Global Astaxanthin Market Trends:

One of the primary factors driving the market is the rising number of individuals diagnosed with cancer, diabetes, cognitive health problems, and cardiovascular diseases. Additionally, the numerous health benefits offered by astaxanthin, such as reducing blood sugar levels, increasing blood flow, and minimizing pain in joints, muscles and tendons, are creating a positive market outlook. In line with this, the increasing awareness amongst the masses about nutritional products, along with the expanding preferences for dietary supplements on account of the high cost of hospitalization, is positively influencing the market growth. Besides this, manufacturers are utilizing cost-effective technologies to produce astaxanthin with micro-modules and photo-bioreactors to reduce water wastage and saving electricity, which is also accelerating the product adoption rate. Furthermore, the extensive adoption of astaxanthin in the food industry as a food additive to preserve the taste, color, freshness and quality of food items is driving the market growth. Other growth-inducing factors include the rising preference for dietary supplements and increasing nutritional deficiency among individuals. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 1,122.1 Million by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 8.39% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
