Purchase Report

Market Insights

The global krill oil market is expected to reach USD 801.65 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 11.1% during 2018-2023. Health-conscious consumers in developed regions are the main consumers of krill oil.    

Market Dynamics

The growing awareness among consumers of the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids is a major factor for the growth of the krill oil market. China occupied around one-third of the infant formula market in 2015, with imported infant formula valued at USD 2.4 billion annually. Demand for infant milk formula is expected to grow at 10%. There is a growing demand for special/premium infant formula products. DHA and EPA are essential for infant brain development and immunity strength. DHA has well established legal strains for incorporation into infant formula products in different regulations and WHO recommendations. Infant formula holds the major market share for omega-3 consumer products in China.

The product quality of krill omega-3 is superior as compared to the fish oil and krill oil contains a higher concentration of omeg-3 as compared to conventional fish sources. Omega-3 held in krill oil has various health benefits, such as preventing cardiovascular diseases by reducing triglyceride level, reducing obesity, bone health, inflammatory health, and increasing immunity. The prevalence of heart disease is more in developing countries due to unhealthy eating habits and lack of awareness among consumers about healthy ingredients.


 Market Dynamics

The global krill oil market has been segmented by type into tablet and liquid. The tablet segment dominates the global krill oil market, due to the growing number of krill oil capsule manufacturers as consumers prefer the tablet form due to ease of usage and easy storage. By application, the krill oil market is segmented into dietary supplements, pharmaceuticals, pet food and animal food, and functional food & beverages. Medical benefits, such as lower blood pressure, improved heart health, and reduced triglycerides are allowing the dietary supplement segment to dominate the market. 

Regional analysis

There has been a recent increase in the consumption of krill oil among the consumers in developed regions such as North America and Europe due to the increasing awareness of the importance of omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in daily nutritional requirements, which krill oil provides. Europe accounts for the largest market share of the global krill oil market. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness high growth during the forecast period due to the increasing influence of health trends in the developing countries.
