The carotenoids market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.78% to reach USD 1.53 Billion by 2021. The market growth is driven by the increasing awareness about the pharmaceutical and cosmetic uses of carotenoids and the industrialization of pork, poultry, and aquaculture industry. The market is further driven by factors such as increasing end-use applications of carotenoids and rising demand for natural colorations.

On the basis of type, the carotenoids market is led by the astaxanthin type followed by beta-carotene and lutein. The beta-carotene segment is projected to be the fastest-growing type in the carotenoids market due to its increasing application in the food industry.

There are various applications of carotenoids, such as food, feed, supplements, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals. Carotenoids are used on a large scale in animal feed due to their high nutritive value and the pigmentation present in them which increase the palatability of the feed as well as enhance the appearance of meat, meat products, and fish.

In 2015, Europe accounted for the largest market share in carotenoids market, followed by North America and Asia-Pacific. Germany and France constituted the largest country-level markets in the European region in 2015. Increasing awareness about the benefits of carotenoids among industrialists and consumers is leading to the growth of the market in this region. The usage of carotenoids can be treated as a highly nutritious and commercial and can be considered as a safe investment which has led to increased sales of carotenoid products in the European market. The carotenoids market in the Asia-Pacific region is projected to grow with investments from several multinational manufacturers. Moreover, extensive R&D initiatives have been undertaken for exploring the applications of carotenoids.

Carotenoids Market

Adulteration, especially in synthetic carotenoids, and low cost competition from Asian countries are the restraining factors in the carotenoids market.

Key players identified in the global carotenoids market include BASF SE (Germany), Royal DSM N.V. (The Netherlands), Chr. Hansen A/S (Denmark), FMC Corporation (U.S.), Kemin Industries, Inc. (U.S.), and Cyanotech Corporation (U.S.). Most key participants have been exploring new regions through new product launches, collaborations, and acquisitions across the globe to avail a competitive advantage through combined synergies. Since 2011, the carotenoids market has witnessed an increase in demand, especially in countries such as the U.S., Spain, U.K., India, Mexico, and Brazil.
