The Worldwide Tuna & Algae Omega-3 Ingredient Market (2018-2023): Pharmaceuticals, Dietary Supplements, and Animal Nutrition are the Fastest Growing Markets for Algae-Based Omega-3 Applications


The "The Worldwide Tuna & Algae Omega-3 Ingredient Market 2018-2023: Key Growth Drivers, Trends and Challenges" report has been added to's offering.

The Global Market for Tuna Omega-3 Ingredients & Algae Omega-3 Ingredients are expected to register CAGRs of 4.1% and 11.6% respectively, during the forecast period of 2018-2023.

The balance quantity of EPA and DHA is required to meet the daily need of omega-3. Supplement form is the easiest and an efficient way to meet the daily requirement, which is not possible through function food, due to the undefined balance of EPA+DHA. In addition, dietary supplements do not require over-the-counter (OTC) drug permission, which is another major factor that accelerates the demand for tuna oil and algae omega-3.

With the growing R&D on EPA benefits on the human body, the demand for EPA-only-based supplements are increasing. However, strict regulatory guidelines for dietary supplement in some regions, such as Europe, are affecting the market's growth.

Although algae-based EPA is still a niche market, it is recording a growth rate faster than that of algae DHA. Pharmaceuticals, dietary supplements, and animal nutrition are the fastest growing markets for algae-based omega-3 applications. The high price of algae DHA is restraining its growth in developing countries. High birth rate in China, coupled with the lift of ban on one child policy, is likely to accelerate the demand for algal and tuna DHA.
