Ease of handling and storage to propel the demand for Dry Astaxanthin

The astaxanthin market by form was dominated by the dry segment in 2020. The growing awareness about storage and handling problems of liquid astaxanthin among end-use manufacturers, such as feed, food & beverages, are some of the key factors driving the demand for dry ingredients, subsequently augmenting the growth of the dry astaxanthin market over the next few years. The process with the dry form is easier, especially in high-volume manufacturing. The dry form is widely consumed for manufacturing astaxanthin products, such as dietary supplement tablets, capsules, owing to the easy application and various other benefits.

Feed application dominates the industry, while human use application to provide future growth opportunities

The feed segment dominated the market for astaxanthin, by application, in 2020. In terms of use, feed is the largest application, which held about 65.5% of the global astaxanthin production in 2020. Astaxanthin, which provides pigmentation and vitality to animals, has been used in animal feed for decades. The benefits of astaxanthin on humans were revealed just recently. Thus, the astaxanthin market for human consumption is at a nascent stage, whereas the astaxanthin market for animal use is at a more advanced stage.

Natural source astaxanthin finds major applications in nutraceutical ingredient and dietary supplements

By source, the synthetic segment is projected to dominate the astaxanthin market, as they are easy to extract and have low manufacturing costs. However, astaxanthin derived from natural source is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Astaxanthin derived from natural sources is majorly utilized for human consumption as a nutraceutical ingredient and dietary supplements, while astaxanthin derived from synthetic (petroleum) is majorly used for animal feed.

As the demand for natural astaxanthin is increasing, manufacturers are focusing on extracting astaxanthin from micro-algal sources, which is a cheaper process as compared to the traditional extraction from botanical materials

At around one-fifth of the market share, North America is projected to grow strongly at CAGR 9.7% during the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific market accounted for the largest share, given the overall economic growth led by increased urbanization and rapid industrialization. The increasing preference among consumers for healthy food and high demand for meat and seafood are some of the major factors for the growth of animal feed applications of astaxanthin. The region also offers great opportunities to manufacturers and suppliers of astaxanthin, owing to the cost advantage and high demand in this region.

The North American market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2021 to 2026. The market is projected to be driven by the increase in consumer demand for healthy convenience food due to their busy lifestyles. Further, increasing occurrences of obesity and cardiac diseases have led consumers to demand functional food products rich in astaxanthin, thereby driving the market for astaxanthin.
