Meticulous Research®—a leading global market research company, published a research report titled, ‘Astaxanthin Market by Source (Natural, Synthetic), Form (Dry, Liquid), Method of Production (Chemical Synthesis, Fermentation, Extraction), Application (Food & Beverages, Pharmaceuticals, Nutraceuticals, Animal Feed) - Global Forecast to 2030.’
The astaxanthin market is projected to reach $1.34 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2023 to 2030. This market is driven by the growing awareness about clean-label products and the benefits of natural food colors and the increasing demand for natural cosmetics products and dietary supplements.
Furthermore, emerging economies in Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa and government initiatives to support aquaculture are expected to provide significant opportunities for the growth of this market. However, stringent regulatory and approval norms and the high cost of natural astaxanthin hinder the growth of this market to a notable extent.
The astaxanthin market is segmented by source, form, method of production, application, and geography.
Based on source, the astaxanthin market is segmented into natural and synthetic. In 2023, the natural segment is expected to account for the larger share of the astaxanthin market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to its strong antioxidant activity and health benefits, such as immune system support, inflammation reduction, sunburn prevention, and cognitive health support. In addition, factors such as high demand for natural astaxanthin in nutraceutical applications, wide-scale availability of natural astaxanthin, rising demand for astaxanthin for cancer treatment, growing health-conscious population, and higher efficacy compared to synthetic products are expected to fuel the growth of this segment.
Based on form, the astaxanthin market is segmented into dry and liquid. In 2023, the dry segment is expected to account for the larger share of the astaxanthin market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to the advantages of dry astaxanthin, such as ease in handling, transport, and use; longer shelf life of ingredients due to the absence of water; and better ingredient functionality and stability. These advantages have increased the utilization of astaxanthin in dry form in the food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics industries.
However, the liquid segment is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period, owing to its rising demand for manufacturing of food & beverage products to improve the viscosity, mouthfeel, product stability, texture, shelf life, pleasant taste, and appearance.
Based on method of production, the astaxanthin market is segmented into chemical synthesis, microalgae cultivation, fermentation, and extraction. In 2023, the chemical synthesis segment is expected to account for the largest share of the astaxanthin market. The large market share of this segment is attributed to the low cost of production, easy availability, and good stability against low pH. However, the fermentation segment is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period.
Based on application, the astaxanthin market is segmented into food & beverages, nutraceuticals, animal feed, pharmaceuticals, personal care & cosmetics, and other applications. The nutraceuticals segment is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period of 2023–2030. The rapid growth of this segment is mainly attributed to astaxanthin’s ability to control free radicals enhanced by nutraceuticals, thereby becoming the preferred choice to treat various health ailments, including muscle endurance, gastritis, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases, among others. Furthermore, astaxanthin’s antioxidant properties, low side effects, and high nutritional value have made them the priority choice as raw materials in nutraceuticals.
Based on geography, in 2023, Europe is expected to account for the largest share of the astaxanthin market. The large market share of Europe is attributed to the growing food & beverage industry, rising health & wellness trends, increasing feed production, and growing demand for chemical-free cosmetics. Further, the increase in the aging population in the region has led to a surge in demand for astaxanthin to reduce the risk of diabetes, cancer, and other heart-related issues.
In 2023, Germany is expected to account for the largest share of the astaxanthin market in Europe. The large share of this market is attributed to the rising demand for nutritional animal feed ingredients and increasing consumption of functional beverages & nutraceuticals.
