The global astaxanthin market size was valued at USD 900 million in 2020 and is anticipated to expand at a significant CAGR during the forecast period, 2021-2028. The growth of the market is attributed to the rising awareness about the importance of nutrition leading to a healthy lifestyle along with the increasing inclination towards dietary supplements owing to the extremely high cost for hospitalization, thereby increasing the demand of natural antioxidants and astaxanthin.

Astaxanthin Market Key Takeaways

Astaxanthin is regarded to be a potential antioxidant whose main function is to protect the human cells from high oxidation and inflammation. Astaxanthin is classified as a keto-carotenoid, belonging to a larger class called the terpenes. Astaxanthin shows the characteristics of all carotenoids, it is lipid-soluble, it forms double covalent bonds at the center of its nucleus resulting in its red-pigment color, and their chain conjugated double bonds become responsible for their antioxidant functions.

Astaxanthin can be used in the form of dietary and feed supplements such as food colorants for salmon, shrimps, eggs, chicken and crabs production. Synthetic astaxanthin is used as animal feeds and additives to impart coloration such as chicken egg yolks and farm-raised salmon. Astaxanthin also has anti-inflammatory properties which helps in the reduction of pain in the joints, tendons, and muscles of patients that suffer from chronic arthritis. Astaxanthin also helps in the rise of general blood flow resulting in the reduction of blood sugar, diabetes, and blood pressure of patients. According to the survey conducted by the World Health Organization or the WHO, there are more than ten million people in the world, as of 2020, that uses astaxanthin on both dietary basis and as a medication.

The COVID-19 pandemic has reduced the growth of the global astaxanthin market initially. Researchers and scientists were not able to identify the co-relation between the coronavirus and supplements that acted as carotenoid or astaxanthin. However, upon further research, they were able to identify that there was little consequences, in fact it was actually good to consume astaxanthin to ward off the early symptoms of this disease. This steered to hospitals, clinics, and healthcare laboratories to focus more on the development of astaxanthin and their supplements for the prevention and treatment of diseases and this led to its market growth in the later stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Increase in occurrences of diseases including cardiovascular diseases, cognitive health problems, diabetes, and cancer is the primary reason for the projection of boosting the global astaxanthin market growth during the forecast period, 2021-2028.
  • There has been a significant increase in the research and development activities leading to technological advancement of astaxanthin supplements which can become a major factor boosting the market growth.
  • High prices for the development of astaxanthin, high cost of services from the company’s perspective, and ultimately high prices for astaxanthin supplements is anticipated to hinder the global astaxanthin market growth. This becomes extremely difficult to function in developing countries such as India, South Africa and Brazil where there is limited healthcare supply chain infrastructure.
  • Astaxanthin can have multiple side-effects if consumed without proper supervision or prescription. Individuals who have taken astaxanthin without medical prescription have faced several side-effects including stomach aches, increased duration of bowel movements, and severe headaches. This uncertainty can hamper the astaxanthin market growth.
  • R&D investment and technological advancement are expected to offer significant opportunities for the market players. Researchers and scientists have understood the significant cost factor and realized that they can innovate new methodologies for this treatment fee to be feasible for the patients. Cost-effective technologies have been implemented in the production of astaxanthin, particularly synthetic astaxanthin. Astaxanthin also found new applications in nutraceuticals for the prevention of chronic diseases, delaying the aging process, and improve health.

Global Astaxanthin Market Segment Insights

Natural segment is projected to represent a large market share

On the basis of types, the global astaxanthin market is bifurcated into natural and synthetic. The natural segment is further divided into yeast, krill/shrimp, microalgae, and others. The natural segment is expected to constitute the major share of the market in 2019. The major reason attributing to this market growth is its production from various natural sources including yeast and algae being the most popular diagnostic studies in biotechnology due to their increasing demand in various applications such as nutraceutical and pharmaceutical applications.

Dried algae meal or biomass segment is estimated to signify the largest market share

Based on products, the global astaxanthin market is segmented into dried algae meal or biomass, oil, softgel, liquid, and others. The dried algae meal or biomass segment is expected to constitute the major share of the market in 2019. The major reason attributing to this market growth is the availability of natural resources that can be used in production of astaxanthin at low costs and high efficacy.

Meanwhile the softgel segment is anticipated to grow with a significant CAGR during the forecast period, 2021-2028. The effectiveness of this product is far greater than that of the dried algae meal or biomass and can be feasible in the forecast period.

Astaxanthin Market By Products

Aquaculture & animal feed segment is anticipated to register a huge market share

On the basis of applications, the global astaxanthin market is divided into nutraceuticals, cosmetics, aquaculture & animal feed, and others. The aquaculture & animal feed segment is expected to constitute the major share of the market in 2019. The major reason attributing to this market growth is their extensive use as feed additives. Certain types of astaxanthin have also been used in fish coloring processes which in turn improve the animal texture.

Meanwhile the nutraceuticals segment is anticipated to grow with a significant CAGR during the forecast period. The major reason attributing to this segment growth is the astaxanthin’s ability to control free radicals enhanced by nutraceuticals, thereby becoming the preferred choice to treat various health ailments including diabetes, muscle endurance, gastritis, and cardiovascular diseases.

Astaxanthin Market By Applications

North America is anticipated to dominate the market

On the basis of regions, the global astaxanthin market is categorized as Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe and Middle East & Africa. The market in North America is expected to constitute the largest share in 2019. This regional market growth can be attributed to the growing research & development expenditure along with the rising in adoption of the latest technology. The demand of astaxanthin supplements is increasing rapidly in this region due to the presence of the major market players in the market, an advantage other regions do not have. The cost of expenditure is significantly lower in North America than that of other economies. However, the market in Asia Pacific is anticipated to expand at a significant CAGR during the forecast period, 2021-2028, as they have prioritized the cost-efficiency perspective of astaxanthin combined with their growing population.
