Spirulina Extract Market Insights

Spirulina extract is a natural ingredient and colorant that can be used as a dietary/ nutritional supplement and as a cosmetic ingredient. Though spirulina was part of the food and feed industry for the past decade, there are new opportunities in various industries such as agriculture, bio-diesel, nutraceuticals, and cosmetics.

Spirulina Extract Market Dynamics

Stringent regulations and a ban on synthetic food additives by the European and United States governments have opened the gates for the demand for natural additives. The growing demand for natural and clean label colors has recreated a demand for spirulina extracts. However, the specific climatic conditions required for the growth of algae are limiting the market. As a result, the countries are highly relying on imports to meet the demand. Moreover, the high costs incurred in developing the product are also restraining the market. However, the growing disposable incomes and awareness of the natural product efficiency in the developing economies are creating opportunities for growth of the global spirulina extract market during the forecast period. Innovations and funding supporting research are also major avenues to explore in the coming years.

Spirulina Extract Market Segmentation                                 

Spirulina is rich in chlorophyll, phycocyanin, and beta-carotene and is often used as a source of natural color. Edible color Linablue, used in ice creams and confectionaries, is mainly produced from spirulina.  Bans on various synthetic colors in food items by various developed nations like EU, the US, and Japan are fuelling this market. Japan has made it mandatory to use food colors that have no chemicals.  In the United States, the FDA has approved the use of spirulina-based ‘Linablue’ to be used in candy as an alternative to synthetic colors. The market has been segmented by industries served (nutraceuticals, food, cosmetics, agriculture, feed, and others).

Spirulina Extract Market Regional Analysis

The spirulina extract market has been segmented by region (North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East & Africa, and Asia-Pacific).
