Squalene Market

Market Leader - Squalene Market

The squalene market is estimated to grow to USD 198 million by 2027 from USD 143 million in 2022, at a CAGR of 6.8% between 2022 and 2027. Growth in R&D activities in pharmaceuticals industry and rising popularity in nutraceuticals is expected to support the growth of the squalene market. However, consumer skepticism about animal-sourced products and limitations on shark fishing is restraining the growth of the market. On the other hand, new renewable sources for production have created opportunities for manufacturers.

Amyris, Inc (US), SOPHIM (France), Merck KGaA (Germany), Kishimoto Special Liver Oil Co., Ltd. (Japan), Empresa Figueirense De Pesca (Portugal), Arbee (India), Oleicfat S.L. (Spain), NZ Green Health Ltd. (New Zealand), Otto Chemie Pvt. Ltd. (India) and Cibus (US), among others are the major players in this market.
