The squalene market is estimated to reach USD 211.76 Million by 2021 and is projected to register a CAGR of 10.2% between 2016 and 2021. Various beneficial properties of squalene on human health and rising demand from various applications such as cosmetics and pharmaceuticals are driving the squalene market. Squalene has many beneficial properties such as anti-oxidation, anti-aging, strengthening of the immune system, and UV protection, thus, it is used in various end-use industries such as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and food. In the pharmaceuticals industry, squalene has many clinical uses such as treatment of leukemia and cancers; detoxifier of xenobiotics; and for protection from radiation illness against X-ray therapy. In the cosmetics industry, squalene has applications as moisturizer, anti-aging agent, and for protection against UV rays as it readily gets absorbed by the skin. Rise in demand in these end-use industries will ultimately contribute toward the growth of the squalene market.

The squalene market is analyzed in terms of source type, end-use industry, and region. Animal–sourced and vegetable–sourced are the major squalene types that are used in various end-use industries such as cosemtics, food, and pharmaceuticals. Animal–sourced squalene dominated the overall squalene market and this dominance is expected to continue during the forecast period. Asia–Pacific is the second-largest market for squalene. The vegetable–sourced squalene segment is projected to witness the highest growth rate, both in terms of volume and value, due to the increasing skepticism over shark killing (richest source of squalene).

Cosmetics, food, and pharmaceuticals are the major end-use industries of squalene. Cosmetics is the largest end-use industry for squalene. The demand for squalene in cosmetics is mostly driven by increasing consumer’s awareness and willingness to pay premium for products in Europe, Asia-Pacific, and North America. The cosmetics end-use industry in Europe will account for the maximum share of the squalene market owing to the high demand from developed economies in the region.

Squalene Market

Asia-Pacific is the second-largest market for squalene after Europe. The region is expected to witness the highest growth rate owing to vast potential that can be realized in the near future. The use of animal–sourced squalene dominates the Asia-Pacific market owing to high investments in the cosmetics end-use industry in China, Japan, and South Korea.
