The algae industry is registering significant traction from last few decades with increasing demand for algae-based protein, lipids, omega-3 fatty acids, algal pigments, and other products. The demand for algae products is particularly driven by the health and wellness trends supporting the growth of the dietary supplements and nutraceuticals industry, increasing demand for natural food colors, consumer preference towards clean-label products, and rising demand for organic & vegan food & cosmetics products.
To capitalize on the high growth in the algae industry and to gain the competitive edge, many vendors in this market are investing heavily in innovative technologies like Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) Technology for the extraction of oils from algal cells early in the biorefining process, enzymatic hydrolysis for bioethanol production from algae feedstock, and many others. These technologies will empower the manufacturers with enhanced and efficient production and help them with timely delivery of required ingredients to meet industry demand.
