Market Insights

“Growing application of algae accelerating its demand in the market”

The growing applications of algae in the pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals industries have a high demand for algae. Commercial produced algae products such as Spirulina, chlorella, astaxanthin, and beta carotene have good demand in the global market. However, emerging and novel algae products have significant potential in the future. In the nutraceuticals and pharmaceutical industry, algae bioactive compounds such as Lutein, Zeaxanthin, Fucoxanthin, and Phycobiliprotein are widely used for in preventing age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and anti-tumor, anti-obesity from aging population across the world.

With the rising trend of sustainable product uses across the globe, the algae offer great potential in the long run. Algae-based wastewater treatment benefitting companies to reduce their current expensive process of wastewater treatment. Major industries applying algae for sewage and water treatment include pharmaceuticals, paper & pulp, fertilizers, food & dairy, chemical, metal finishing, textile dyeing, and biotechnology. Furthermore, coal-based power plants, cement, iron & steel, mining, and sugar plants that emit a large quantity of CO2 are also using CO2 sequestration and benefitting from cost-cutting and in return also getting fuel feedstock.

Moreover, as algae capture and transform CO2 at a rate substantially higher than tress with much lesser space, algae have been used for fighting climate change. For instance, in December 2019, Hypergiant, LLC, an AI technology company, developed Eos bioreactor which uses chlorella Vulgaris algae capable of sucking CO2 400 times faster than trees. Further, the biomass produced as end-product can be harvested and processed to produce fuels, oils, protein-rich foods sources, fertilizers plastics, cosmetics and more.

The overall algae products market is competitive in nature and it is growing at moderate rate. The market players are adopting strategies such as launching new solutions, partnership, and agreements to stay competitive in the market.
