Astaxanthin Market Size, Trends, Key Companies, Revenue Share Analysis, 2018–2028

According to the current analysis of Reports and Data, the global Astaxanthin market was valued at USD 597.2 million in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 1,058.6 million by the year 2028, at a CAGR of 6.5% . Astaxanthin popularly taken as a supplement. It has been used safely in combination with other carotenoids, vitamins, and minerals at a considerable amount. Astaxanthin is a reddish pigment that belongs to a group of chemicals called carotenoids. It occurs naturally in certain algae and causes the pink or red color in salmon, trout, lobster, shrimp, and other seafood. Astaxanthin is consumed for treating Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, high cholesterol, liver diseases, age-related vision loss, and preventing tumors. It is also utilized in treating metabolic syndrome, which results in an increase in the risk of stroke and diabetes. It is also used for enhancing the overall workout performance, minimizing muscle damage after exercise, and diminishing muscle soreness after exercise. Moreover, astaxanthin is used to prevent sunburn, to improve sleep, and many other medical conditions.

Astaxanthin is applied directly to the skin to protect against sunburn, to reduce wrinkles, and for other cosmetic benefits. In food, it is used as a coloring for salmon, crabs, shrimp, chicken, and egg production. In agriculture, astaxanthin is used as a food supplement for egg-producing chickens. Though, side effects of astaxanthin include stomach pain which is expected to alter consumer’s preference. There are two main markets, at the present time, for Haematoccocus astaxanthin: as a feed additive and as a human nutraceutical. Astaxanthin has applications in feeds for animals for which color appearance is essential for consumer acceptability.

The largest consumer of astaxanthin today is the salmon feed industry. However, the largest producers of astaxanthin in the world market today produce astaxanthin via chemical synthesis at significantly lower costs than is possible using Haematococcus at present. In some applications (koi, chickens, sea bream), Haematococcus astaxanthin commands a premium price over synthetic astaxanthin because of enhanced pigment deposition or regulatory requirements. It can be expected that as the public at large becomes educated to the fact that most salmon available today is fed an artificial pigment, desire for a naturally pigmented product will increase the demand, and price.
