Despite a Major Dip during Pandemic, Microalgae Astaxanthin is Projected to Lead Astaxanthin Market Growth by a Robust 2019-2026 CAGR of 9% to Reach 567 MT by 2026 - Market Report by Industry Experts, Inc.

Thursday 03 Dec 2020

Industry Experts, Inc. released an updated 2020 version of the comprehensive global market report on Astaxanthin. The report entitled "Global Astaxanthin Market – Sources, Technologies and Applications" reveals that the consumer spending on other single vitamin and dietary supplements including Astaxanthin supplements has drastically reduced during the first half of 2020. Astaxanthin supplement sales were lower due to the closure of retail stores across the globe, partially offset by the increased sales on e-commerce channels. The situation is somewhat normalized during the second half of 2020, but still consumer spending on Astaxanthin supplements is expected to be lower than the normal.

The impact of COVID-19 pandemic on astaxanthin demand is expected to differ in intensity depending on their end-use application and region. Sharpest declines would be expected in astaxanthin for dietary supplements, cosmetics and aqua feed sectors. Demand for astaxanthin in poultry feed and food & beverages, although less than the normal growth, is expected to be somewhat better compared to other applications.
