The growth in consumption can be attributed to various factors including market positioning of seaweed as an alternative protein source, the growing vegan population in Western nations and the increasing popularity of seaweed snacks. Growth is also due to increased government interest in seaweed cultivation for its ability to generate export revenues.
The Asia-Pacific leads the farmed seaweed market while Latin America leads the wild harvest stocks. Cultivated seaweed is preferred by end users as there are no traceability issues and quality is higher.
The most popular type of species includes Japanese kelp, Euchema seaweed, Gracilaria seaweed, wakame and nori. Seaweed is either traded in raw form or processed form. Processed forms include its hydrocolloids like carrageenan, alginates and agar gum. Seaweeds are classified into red seaweed, green seaweed, brown seaweed and others. Red seaweeds are consumed most frequently as they are abundantly available and are used in making of alginates and seaweed extract sprays.
In terms of application, commercial seaweeds are directly consumed as food or in processed forms. Hydrocolloids are used in food processing as functional agents like texturizing. Other utilization includes usage in animal feeds, cosmetics, fertilizers and in water treatments.
Regionally, the Asia-Pacific region led the production as well as consumption of commercial seaweeds. This growth is mainly led by China and Japan, owing to increases in domestic consumption. Indonesia and Philippines also emerged as leading producers of commercial seaweed and exporters to other markets. Governments and concerned authorities of developing nations are laying greater emphasis on seaweed cultivation and improvements in technologies to bring in revenues from exports.
