Dublin, July 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Spirulina Market by Distribution Channel, Product Type, Application - Global Forecast to 2028" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The spirulina market is expected to record a CAGR of 13.2% from 2021 to 2028 to reach $968.6 million by 2028. In terms of volume, the spirulina market is expected to register a CAGR of 18.1% from 2021 to 2028 to reach 98,768.5 tons by 2028.
The factors such as growing health & wellness trends and dietary supplements industry; growing demand for natural food colors; increasing vegetarianism; stringent regulations regarding the inclusion of synthetic colors and flavors; growing malnutrition; increasing preference for spirulina sourced products, especially omega-3 fatty acids; growing use of spirulina in aquaculture; growing investments from leading color houses, and increase in number of products that include spirulina as ingredients are driving the growth in the global spirulina market. However, low awareness about the benefits of spirulina and challenges associated with spirulina production is expected to hinder the growth of the global spirulina market to some extent.
The global spirulina market study presents historical market data in terms of values and volumes (2019 and 2020), estimated current data (2021), and forecasts for 2028- by distribution channel (consumer channel, business channel), product type (powder, tablets, capsules, flakes, phycocyanin extract, and frozen spirulina), and application (nutraceuticals, food & beverages, animal feed, cosmetics, and agriculture). The study also evaluates industry competitors and analyzes the market at a regional and country level.
Based on the distribution channel, the spirulina market is mainly segmented into consumer and business channels. In 2021, the business channel segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the overall spirulina market. The largest share of this segment is mainly attributed to the direct purchase of bulk spirulina in large quantities by various manufacturers such as nutraceuticals, food and beverages, and animal feed, among others, for further product development.
Based on the product type, the spirulina market is mainly segmented into powder, tablets, capsules, flakes, phycocyanin extracts, and frozen spirulina. The phycocyanin extracts segment is expected to grow with the fastest CAGR during the forecast period, attributed to factors such as tremendous demand from the food and beverage industry, where it is used as a natural food colorant; growing investment from leading players; and expanding application areas of phycocyanin.
However, the nutraceuticals segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the overall spirulina market in 2021. The largest share of this segment is attributed to the booming nutraceutical 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.
Based on application, in 2021, the nutraceuticals segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the overall spirulina market. The largest share of this segment is mainly attributed to the booming nutraceutical 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.
An in-depth analysis of the geographical scenario of the industry provides detailed qualitative and quantitative insights about the five major geographies (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa) along with the coverage of major countries in each region. In 2021, North America is estimated to account for the largest share of the spirulina market, followed by Asia-Pacific and Europe.
The large share of this region is mainly attributed to huge consumption of health supplements, strict regulations against the use of synthetic colors, growth of subsidiary industries like cosmetics and biofertilizers, increasing preference for natural protein sources, and presence of key spirulina manufacturers with huge production capacities.
