  • The United States and Australia continue being the countries with the highest demand for chia seeds and other chia-based products, but there are markets, such as the United Kingdom, Brazil, Chile, and Spain, that have shown a substantial increase in their demand.
  • The increased demand for nutritional ancient grains and multi-cereal-based products as functional foods are driving the demand for chia seeds. Chia seeds are gluten-free and have high protein content. The gluten-free property of chia seeds is expected to create a strong demand among consumers suffering from gluten intolerance (celiac disease), or those who simply avoid gluten because of their lifestyle choices.

Hence the initial Covid-19 lockdown causing disruptions in the logistics system has affected the supply of the commodity across the globe. This have led to a decline in the market during the first half of the year. However, the pandemic has increased the health consciousness among the consumers which has opened an opportunity for the superfoods including chia and the factor is anticipated to propel the market in the forecast period.

About 80% of the world’s chia supply comes from Latin America. Other countries, like Australia, and to a smaller extent, select countries in the Asia-Pacific regions, are scaling production to meet the global demand. The chia seeds maket study inlcudes the production, consumption, import, export and price trend analysis of major countries in the market.
