Seaweed Extracts Market Growth, Research, Share, Sales, Industry Trends and Analysis

Market Overview

Market Research Future (MRFR) announces the publication of its research report Global Seaweed Extracts Market, 2019–2024. Seaweed extracts are the main source for vitamin K, iron, calcium, and omega-3 fatty acids that raise healthy high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels while lowering low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, thereby improving heart health. Thus, these extracts are extensively used in various food products as well as pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals. The global seaweed extract market is expected to register a growth rate of 5.8% during the forecast period of 2019 to 2024 to reach USD 4.5 billion by 2024.

Seaweed extracts are obtained from green, red, and brown algae by alkaline abstraction, ruptured cell suspension, water extraction, and cryo-micro-crushing. These are multi-cellular, macroscopic, and marine algae found in oceans and seas. Seaweed extracts are largely used in agricultural activities as biostimulants and additives for fertilizers owing to presence of oligose, phycocolloid, polyphenol, cytokinin, mannitol, lignin, and betaine that improve root development, leaf quality, germination, and resistance to pathogens.
